    Golden Globes

    Every year around this time television and movie buffs come together for the second most important awards event of their careers, the Golden Globes. This awards show acknowledges some of the greatest pieces of work created.  The categories include: Best Motion Picture, Drama, Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama, Best Director of a motion picture, drama, and best actress in a TV series just to name a few. With extremely worthy nominations viewers were excited to know who won the gold Sunday night.

    Last year Best Drama Motion Picture went to 12 Years a Slave a film that not only enlighten its audience but also provided an incredible production and performance. Alfonso Cuaron won Best Director of a motion picture Drama for Gravity a Sci-Fi thriller staring Saundra Bullock and George Clooney. These two awards set a president for trophy winners this year.

    Best director of a motion picture went to Richard Linklater for Boyhood. Even though many were rooting for Ava DuVernay because Selma was an amazing work of art, it did win best original song written by Common and John Legend.

    There were many exciting moments of the evening some included its hilarious host Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. The most memorable other than the tear jerking acceptance speeches were the glammed up ensembles of the A-listers. Everyone looked fantastic as expected but a few caught our eye.

    Kerry Washington illuminated the room with her new mommy glow in a pink ankle length dress and up-do.


    The top three looks of the evening go to Ava DuVernay, Kate Hudson, and Jennifer Lopez all serving sexy in a different way.


    Ava’s form fitting blue gown was the perfect statement for a pivotal moment in her directing career. Her natural up-do created enough drama to get her attention but show off her amazing face. Kate’s dress is THE definition of sexy with the lowest neckline possible and her hair is perfect for her risky dress. Jennifer always gives us ultimate diva with her split and plugging neckline. Tucking her hair behind her ears helps reveal her smokey eye. Lupita Nyong also dazzled the crowd along with many others.

    While the winners celebrated their trophies spectators gathered to party with them. congratulations to all the winners and especially the nominee

      Most people have a “Top Five”  the first five hip hop or rap artist that come to mind. These  people represent who you are what you believe in and what kind of person society expects you to be. In the black community people can tell a lot about you by what artist you listen to and support especially hip hop artist.

          There’s A Line Between The Law And Crime


          Just days after America was surprised,  yet again by the lack of conviction on Eric Garner’s case we cannot help but scale back to all of the deaths of black men, young and old.  Eric Garner may have been arrested previously for selling untaxed cigarettes, the possession of marijuana, and false impersonation but his execution on that Staten Island sidewalk earlier this year was unacceptable. Just a week before the verdict of this case hit the press, we all learned the police officer who gunned down Michael Brown will also walk-free.  Many Americans are confused but even more are enraged by the fact that a black man can be unarmed and killed by law enforcement for any reason and walk away free. Are the police departments really protecting and serving or are they reacting without thinking and leaving black men as the product of their “mistakes”? Many more men and boys have fallen short to these mistakes like Kimani Grey, a sixteen year-old boy leaving his friends’ party or Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams who experienced 137 rounds from the Cleveland police department. The names go on-and-on but justice is not yet served, money does not bring back lives and the black community will not “hush” until the justice system see’s that police officers are not exempt  from punishment. Americans may be able to overlook some things but when things get out of hands, they take to the streets literally. The most recent protest include lays and blocking major bridges highways and streets. Go America!

                  Kiyah Wright Shows You How To “Werk That Braid!” On The Real


                  Now is the time to have fun with your hair and add a little flare. Adding a braid or two to your favorite hairstyle takes your mane from blah to bow! Kiyah Wright appeared on “The Real” to give the everyday woman a few tips on creating the perfect braid for her look.


                  The first braid Kiyah introduced was the Dutch braid.  This braid appears to be three french braids in one but, is simply an intricate “piece of art” as Adrienne Bailon expressed during the show. Created with a simple “under over, over under” weaving technique it is a little surprise in the back of your head.


                  The second braid was a bit more fun. Kiyah created a Waterfall  braid using a ladder technique which allowed the model to leave half of her hair down like a “half up half down” style.  The great thing about this braid is it can be a little messy and still look great.


                  The last braid introduced was the very trendy Crown braid . Kiyah took it up a notch by adding a “S” cornrow in the back and bringing up the hanging braid into a chignon to create a rose bud effect perfect for an evening look.

                      Kiyah giving pointers

                      Kiyah’s biggest points of the class are to:

                      1. Learn how to create a flawless weave using her three proven techniques
                      2. Crack the hair code – how to determine if the hair you are using is quality
                      3. Discover how to become a celebrity stylist and how to bring the Hollywood look home to your client

                      Each class learns two to three ways to instal a weave. Last Sundays participants learned how to do a side part and a middle part. She also gave them tips on how to determine which part is appropriate for their client. Once they geared up they were warned about rushing and messy work. This day was not the day to be in a race because everyone was expected to reach perfection if not close to it. Many students became frustrated and some even wanted to give up but at end of the 12 hour day the weaves were complete. All of the stylist walked away with valuable knowledge and a new willingness to recreate a perfect weave for all of their clients.



                      They made it through the class!

                        Today on The Meredith Vieira Show three desperate daughters asked Meredith to make over their mothers. She couldn’t do anything but call celebrity hairstylist Kiyah Wright. For years these three mothers have been walking around with dated hairstyles and fashion. All three ladies desperately needed new hair to change their lives.

                        The first mother Lisa, needed some vibrancy to her color as well as straightening her Dolly Parton roller set. Bringing down her side bang and added some autumn red was all she needed to change her life.


                        Mommy number 2 Coraline, needed some extensions for fullness and length. Lighter chocolate brown highlights were the perfect touch to step up her sassy new haircut.


                        The  3rd mother Donna, knew enough about pop culture but some how still got caught in a “hair don’t”. Kiyah applied great manageable color and layers with a few soft curls to bring back the youth to her neglected look. They were easy fixes to change her life!

Kiyah mixed up the lesson by doing an editorial photo shoot on stage. Beautiful Autumn: Fall Trends showcased fall hair color trends and styles with a garden encompassed variation of leaves branches and other greenery found in a pre- autumn garden.

                                While the newly weds are busy enjoying each other  I reminisce on the grand union I witness. Saturday August 30, Gabrielle and Dwayne Wade vowed to commit the rest of their lives to each other. It was a pleasure to be apart of such a special day.  She’s not only one of my celebrity clients but one of my “favs”. I must have hugged and told her how happy I am for her a million times. On her big day she was calm and cool while  I was doing her hair and Fiona was doing her makeup. Like Gabrielle, Dwayne was “chillin” the entire day it was funny to see him take all of the jokes about being a bridezilla. Non the less I am honored to have been apart of such a special day. Congrats to these two!

                                    Yes, it is true Beyoncé will be performing at this years VMA’s not through live broadcast but right here in LA at The Forum (hopefully).

                                                  OWN has introduced us to four girlfriends in New York City. As we meet them, the girls are a midst major career, relationship, and health transitions. With energetic poise these girls graciously reel us in, which isn’t hard to do. Their genuine friendship and lifestyles, which were established long before the cameras started rolling, is relate able and charming.


                                                  (cast l-r) Bershan Shaw, Chenoa Maxwell, Kiyah Wright, Tiffany Jones

                                                  Although I caught up with the show toward the end of the season, I ca honestly say by the end of the first episode I felt as if these could be any of my girlfriends. I felt like their personal and professional situations weren’t being exaggerated. I loved it, bravo!!!

                                                  I’m looking forward to season 2.


                                                  I attended the LA Press Screening, and after had the opportunity to chat with celebrity hairstylist du jour Kiyah Wright and the groups main girlfriend! Our hour long conversation was fun. We dished of course about the show, life’s journey, career, and a lil Jesus. Join me as I go behind-the-seams with the raspy voiced ingenue.

                                                  Totally Obsessed xoxo Love


                                                  LC: Now that the first season has wrapped how would you describe the overall experience? KW: It was truly a great experience. Just being with my girls knowing they are all out for your best interest. It was honest TV. It felt too easy.


                                                  LC: Do you feel the show’s original goal or intent was achieved successfully?

                                                  KW: I do, but I also felt like it became a bit heavy too. This is that era where a lot of women are getting cancer, although it was good to see Bershan and Tiffany make it through. Then Chenoa, not being able to have children and her and husband separating. My story! I’m dating a 27 year old… is this realistic?! Our stories developed naturally. And viewers got a chance to see that and how we support each other through the process.


                                                  LC: Did you ever feel like you had to hold back, either for anonymity sake or as a filter? KW: I really didn’t hold back at all. But I’m glad they didn’t highlight me being bossy. It’s not coming from a place where I’m trying to hurt or harm anyone.


                                                  LC: Were you ever worried something would be misinterpreted or edited to come off different than your intention?

                                                  KW: No, I never gave them anything to be misinterpreted.


                                                  LC: As a hairstylist what’s your ultimate goal?

                                                  KW: To create hair solutions for women, catering to the needs for textured hair. My first goal for the Muze product line was hair style maintenance. So women can learn how to maintain their hair style in between appointments. Next is hair care. Ultimately, a Muze Agency, where I can represent other talent like myself.


                                                  LC: What is your perspective on success? Do you feel you are already successful?

                                                  KW: Yes I am. It would really be ungrateful to God to say I’m not successful.


                                                  LC: What’s the best professional advice you’ve received (hair related or not)?

                                                  KW:It was from Puffy on working with celebs. “Stay focused, mind your business, and be the best that you can be.”


                                                  LC: Are you as attentive to your hair as you are towards your clients?

                                                  KW: No, it’s terrible, not at all!! I’ll tell myself, “Tend to your own hair child.”


                                                  What are the top trends right now?

                                                  KW: Natural hair and extensions. I want to make sure I’m catering to those needs.


                                                  What are your top hair do’s and don’ts for texturally based hair.

                                                  Do: A good stylist specializing in color.

                                                  Don’t: Go to a colorist who’s not experienced. You don’t want your hair to come out orange when you want blond.

                                                  Do: Treat your hair by conditioning and using hair masks such as olive oil over night.

                                                  Do: Take your weave out for at least one month in between new styles to allow the scalp to be stimulated.

                                                                I am a warrior, through it all I persevered and went on to complete my graduate school education. I survived an unsuccessful breast surgery that has left my body scared. I currently deal with a medical diagnoses that have baffled doctors as I am not dead but alive and healed through God’s daily plan for me.


                                                                Rikilyn Werner
                                                                I never looked at myself as being a warrior. Everyone always seemed to be fighting their own battles. I thought I was just another average girl who coped with the hand life dealt to me. It wasn’t until I met Jessica Grant, the founder of The Grant School, that I knew that I was wrong. I was, in fact, a strong young lady, who fought hard in life to get to where I am at, and who had a story to tell. I met Jess at work where she informed me about The Grant School, and I thought it was a beautiful thing that she was doing for today’s young ladies. I wanted to be a part of it. Jess was not hesitant at all, and let me help her whenever she needed it. Little does she know, she helped me too. I was a very negative person until she came into my life.

                                                                I am a warrior I survived all the above and the pain of losing 2 siblings a brother and a sister.

I empower other women by sharing my story of abuse and my journey of healing.  I mentor young ladies in learning to embrace the power of forgiveness in a failed relationship for themselves the sake of the children.  It’s about finding the resolve and pressing forward.

Charles and Ann married and had three children and I was their youngest, who they named Susan Carol.  I was born with a skin disease called eczema, a bald head and raised in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I became ashamed of my appearance, which developed into a life of covering up my skin and my true self.  Most of my younger years was focused on my outward appearance trying to get healing from eczema, but much of the attention needed to be on my inward person and most importantly my heart.

Whether you opt for extreme or subtle, the look is without a doubt, a statement with pizzaz! For those with little time on their hands, vying for a quick hair color change, rapid ombre is the technique to try. Beauty Bender gets the low down on this fast, yet effective method.

Kiyah’s hands on experience as well as her extensive global travels inspired each product in the line. Wright rigorously tested every product in the line, partnering with formulators to ensure the highest standards and results.

These women want solutions for how to maintain and protect their hair and I wanted to bring a premium hair care line and solutions to women of varying ethnicities and hair textures, globally.”

                                                                                                          LAST LOOK Hairspray, the first product from the muze|hair collection is about empowering a woman to look and feel good with soft, moveable hair that maintains its style throughout a rigorous day.
