Weave Couture


Glamourous style is all yours with this romantic mane styled by Shameika Bolden of Bold & Beautiful Salon in Downington, PA.

B B1 B2

A partial weave with pre-lightened, caramel-colored ends is sewn-in and then straightened with a flat iron. A one-inch wand is used to create loose spirals, which are combed together with fingers to create larger waves. A shine spray is applied to hair for a glowing finish.



Tiffanie Dixon

Celebrity hairstylist Tiffanie Dixon’s standout skills may have gotten her into the industry, but it’s her devotion to the craft that’s kept her a household name for celebrities like Eve, Brandy, Ciara, LisaRaye and the late music icon Whitney Houston.

Getting into the celebrity hair business may be a difficult venture, but Dixon has plenty of advice for aspiring stylists…

“Go to trade shows and do your research. Most importantly, know the protocol. There are do’s and don’ts (like confidentiality agreements) when you’re working with celebrities, because they’re front and center. Overall it’s about etiquette, having your ‘A’ game on at all times and nurturing your craft so that you can produce the best service and product.”
