Transform a classic bob with this contemporary style by Brittany “B.A.D.” Donaldson of Ma’at XXIII in San Francisco, CA.
This chic silhouette features pops of color that take this mane from cool and classic to modern and marvelous. A partial weave with subtle colors of platinum and burgundy is sewn into the fringe and snipped with thinning shears for a more natural effect. Then, hair is bumped in a “C” shape with a flat iron and spritzed with shine spray for a lovely glow. Keep this gorgeous layered mane light and feathery by using minimal product to style.
Weave maven Hadiiya Barbel has styled a host of fashionable celebrities from rapper Eve to actress Tia Mowry.
Stylist to the stars Hadiiya Barbel shares her tips for maintaining your weave…
HUMAN HAIR UPKEEP: “There are specific products on the market designed to clean human hair wigs, but you may also use a detangling shampoo and conditioner.”
SYNTHETIC STYLING: “Do not put synthetic hair underneath the dryer and don’t use any heat styling tools on it. Always put your synthetic wig on a mannequin head when it’s drying or when you’re sleeping so it maintains its [pre-styled] shape.”
