…Zendaya’s Coif Color Shift!

She loves to keep her style game hot…which could explain the new coif color shift from gorgeous actress/singer Zendaya! The Euphoria star’s newest mane move involves a hot new red hue that shifts and shimmer with radiance depending on the light. Check out how the color deepens to an almost auburn shade under the glow of spotlights on the red (of course!) carpet then goes full-on brilliant under sunlight! So did the star craft the look on her own mane or with the enhancement of a weave or a wig? Zendaya revealed all with a Tweet: “I dyed it, semi-permanent.”

…Style Swagger Rule!

When it comes to male grooming trends, facial hair is definitely on the style radar! Here, Jamaican Mango and Lime (makers of the popular JML Men’s Beard Care line) share an overlooked grooming tip when it comes to beards: Underneath the beard requires care, too! Soothe skin irritation underneath the beard with JML Moisturizing Beard Butter, or JML Moisturizing Beard Oil, applied sparingly to beard and skin area and gently massaged in. Next apply a warm, wet towel to the beard and let the warmth penetrate the added moisture and oil for up to seven minutes.

Gentlemen, get your grooming game on with the help of JML Men’s Beard Care line!

Celebrate Spirals…

Gorgeous spirals like these will give you a reason to smile! Here, Natural tresses are snipped with concave pixie bangs. Remaining tendrils are shaped into a curved, graduated bob with layers…all the better to set those curls in motion! As an accent, the dark base color is enhanced with multi-level highlights to further put the focus on those cute curls. Style the look by working in a leave-in conditioner then allow hair to set under a hood dryer. Finish by diffuse drying mane upside down to boost volume.

Rocks A 90s Throwback Cut That’s So On Trend…

Actress Meagan Good is no stranger to hair changes. From creative color to various lengths to braids and locs, this California beauty has rocked it all. For her latest big-screen turn in the thriller, The Intruder, Meagan opted for a throwback cut that’s perfectly on-trend now. “I would say it’s a little bit like a boy haircut, which I love. I wouldn’t say it’s a ‘bowl cut,’ because it wasn’t quite that. I think Halle Barry had something similar to it in Boomerang; it’s a very 90s haircut,” Meagan shared with SBH about her big-screen look. For more from our interview with the gorgeous star—and to check out another of Meagan’s chic short cuts (hint: it’s bold gold!)—grab the June 2019 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair (on sale now!).
