      Celebrity hair stylist Kiyah Wright also has a thing or two to say about being fabulous at any age especially over 40. Keeping your look young and fresh also means you must recognize the importance of mixing classic and modern style.



      Kiyah was able to stay comfy and chic at Comme Des Garcons with her classic black and white low top converse a never dying staple piece for most women.

      Fashion is like a revolving door because old trends pop back up especially hair trends. A few designers caught our eye with fabulous fashion for every age. Marc Jacobs did a superb job at pairing clean lines and a blunt textured bob on his beautiful models.


      The military jacket just won’t give up and a bob is always in! The two worn together or seperately can work at any age. The key word in this combo is length. bob length and jacket length say a lot about age.

                The 2015 Essence Festival was full of exciting events and even better informational discussions. This year Kiyah Wright held it down in her own booth presented by My Black Is Beautiful “All Together Beautiful”. During this time she provided her expert advice on products and hair and did her hair magic on two beautiful models.


                In addition to her time at the My Black Is Beautiful booth Wright did a panel discussion called So You Want To Be A Celebrity Stylist. During this insightful discussion she provided information, advice, and personal experiences. Chatting with her peers she was able to give some up incoming/aspiring celebrity stylist some unforgettable information.

                  Kiyah On Color For Essence Magazine

                  This summer “Orange Is The New Black” but we say pastel is everything! Celebrity Hair Stylist, Kiyah Wright gave Essence Magazine’s readers the 4-1-1 on hair color for this summer.


                  When going from dark to platinum, it’s important to use the right products to keep your hair healthy and moisturized. Clairol Professional’s iThrive has the perfect products if you’re considering a transition.


                  Platinum blonde, pastel blue, green, and even gray require some extra TLC and iThrive Color Vibrancy Conditioning treatment will keep your hair soft and prevent it from being brittle and broken.

                  unnamed-3TREND ALERT!!!! If you’re tired of the usually color option try a soft pastel version of your favorite color. Many women might be afraid of sacrificing the integrity of their hair for some summer fun, but no worries try some hair pieces. A wig or even extensions can change your hair from blahhh to wow in a matter of hours but the best part  is you get to keep the hair on your head.

                  Check out some behind the scenes shots of Kiyah styling and coloring her wigs.

                    2015 BET Awards Brought The Fire!

                    This year marked 15 years of celebrating black excellence. The 2015 BET Awards was a show you shouldn’t have missed! With action packed performances that literally had our TV’s shaking, we were soon reminded why Black Entertainment Television’s award show is one we wait all year for. Last night the acceptance speeches were almost as exciting as the performances. Omarion, Chris Brown, Tyga, The Weeknd and many more graced the stage last night but nothing compared to the Smokey Robinson and Janet Jackson Tributes and the memory filled performance from Bad Boy.

                    Tinashe, Jason Derulo, and Ciara showed off their best dance moves in a tribute to the soon to be touring best performer alive, Janet Jackson. Her life’s work definitely made her deserving of The Ultimate Icon award and tribute.


                    Nothing compared to the energy packed performance from Bad Boy marking 20 years of success from Sean “Diddy” Combs. He brought his artist like Ma$e, Lil Kim, Faith Evans, 112, and a some new flavor from French Montana. Slip ups (pun intended) did not keep this amazing mogul from showing the world what hits he made. This was also a comparative moment for Kiyah Wright because 20 years  ago “Puffy” opened the first door for her to walk into celebrity styling.



                    Everyone definitely brought the funny including Laverne Cox and Gabrielle Union who did a twinsie skit. Of course Gabrielle’s hair was done by none other that Kiyah Wright.


                    It is safe to say that the 3 and half hour show was definitely worth every minute!!

                      Mane Addicts Has Some Insight For You Hair Junkies!

                      Mane Masters

                      Mane Addicts interviewed two-time Emmy Award Winning Celebrity Hair Stylist Kiyah Wright. The answers Wright provides give insight to her journey and claim to fame.

                      How did you get your start in the industry?

                      Kiyah: My start in the industry began when my mother put me in hair school while in high school. I took up cosmetology as a trade. Then I went to work in a really popular salon in DC with a few amazing creative bunch of guys.

                      What was one of your biggest career challenges and how did you overcome it?

                      Kiyah: I think my biggest challenge is balancing the salon, celebrities, building my own brand, a product line and a Clairol Professional schedule. This is a constant challenge for me but with time I have learned that I am doing my best and that’s all I owe the world :) At first it bothered me a lot but now I give everyone a little love from the clients to the celebrities.

                      Who are some role models who have inspired you?

                      Kiyah:A role model who inspires me, I would say Tyra banks has been the most inspiring client that I have ever worked with because she is really a hard-worker, yet still so balanced and normal. She is nice and productive. Sometimes it’s hard to be all those things for that I admire her.

                      Do you have a signature look or style that you are known for?

                      I think my looks are pretty detailed (sometimes too detailed, lol). However, my work is pretty broad across the board and I don’t think I really have one signature look.

                      Which hair products or tools are always in your kit?

                      In my kit I must-have my Le Angelique 1in and 2in flat iron. It’s rounded bevel plates can get close to the roots, straighten and curl hair and I use it for all those reasons. Also, a Tancho stick, hairpins and the Clairol Professional Heat Resistant Hairspray. I can do everything with those few products. 

                      What advice would you give yourself 10 years ago? 

                      I have always followed my intuition so this is a hard one for me because after losing my mom, I have always had good timing with life choices.

                      What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?

                      Best piece of advice I received was from Puffy aka P. Diddy, he told me to stay focused and not to get too relaxed at work.  

                      What advice would you give to new stylists?

                      My advice for new stylists is find your niche, keep current with the trends and always try to work with people that are better than you.

                      kiyah wright change your hair

                      What is the next chapter for you?

                      My next chapter has already began. My goal has always been to become the Paul Mitchell of textured hair care because in our culture there really isn’t someone that represents our market..Muze|hair by Kiyah Wright is my brand.

                      How would you describe your beauty and hair philosophy? 

                      My beauty and hair philosophy is I believe when you change your hair; you change your life.

                                TyTy A.K.A. Tyra Banks A.K.A Someone We Admire

                                The 2015 Daytime Emmy’s aired last night on POP TV hosted by none other then Tyra Banks. This was the perfect stage to show off her new crop chopped, colored, and styled by Kiyah Wright.


                                Ms. Banks has accomplished an array of things in her lifetime and hosting an annual show like the Emmy’s was no surprise.



                                History making super model moves, gave her enough credibility to executive produce a reality show following a great competition of unique models, hand picked by Tyra herself.  This show has so much seniority it has literally raised young girls on its 21 season; we can say Tyra has struck a reality TV gold mine. Once she settled into her success of America’s Next Top Model she decided to host her own day time TV show, once again cha- ching! JACKPOT. This show helped Kiyah Wright earn two Emmy’s with more to come. Just when you couldn’t get enough of TyTy she announcing a makeup line “Tyra” Beauty sold through HSN and of course her website



                                As a CEO and Super Model Tyra Banks has inspired many girls, young women, women of all ages, but most importantly Kiyah Wright.

                                  Steed claimed her prize and here’s her thoughts:

                                  “I got a HAIR MAKEOVER with Celebrity Stylist Kiyah Wright sponsored by ESSENCE & CLAIROL PROFESSIONAL!!!!!

                                  I won a fully paid round-trip to Los Angeles. I stayed at the Sofitel Beverly Hills and I had my own personal drivers chauffeur me to and from the airport including to Kiyah Wright’s salon in Beverly Hills, Muze Suites.
                                  Kiyah Wright is AMAZING & A REAL PRO!!! She’s a two-time Emmy Award-winning celebrity hairstylist whose genius has not only set the precedent for image making, but has redefined the appearance of sexy, successful and confident women. (
                                  Kiyah’s work graces the heads of Tyra Banks, Jennifer Hudson, Gabrielle Union, Kerry Washington, Ciara, and many more!
                                  I was really grateful for this opportunity….and even more excited that I won this contest.

                                  Thank you Essence & Clairol Professional.
                                  And huge thank you to Irena Kojouharova, Assistant Brand Manager/P&G Salon Professional, and Kiyah for giving me a fresh, new look! xo”

                                  We’re glad you love your new look!

                                  Teneka already had lighter hair, but her roots were dark, so Kiyah mixed 8A and 6AA with 20 volume and BW2 powder (all Clairol Professional products) to  give her the perfect spring time blonde that can carry well over into summer.


                                  Teneka – Before and After



                                  Step 1: Kiyah applying the color


                                  Step 2: Color, cut, and straightened now it’s time to style!


                                  Finished, selfie time!


                                    A Short Cut to Strikingly Hot Hair

                                    Warmer weather means shorter tresses and fun chops! There are 3 cuts that we absolutely love and you will too. Starting with shortest, if you’re feeling daring chop it all off and keep your bang.


                                    Tyra Banks recently went lighter and shorter for a sassy edgy look. Her new cut is the perfect embellished frame for her breathtaking face. Of course this life changing cut was done by none other then Kiyah Wright. This look is easy to style and always fun!


                                    This ain’t your brother’s kitchen bowl hair cut! This cut is a bit more edgy but definitely fierce and will set you apart from the crowd. There are different variations of the classic cut and you can even go lower or shorter in the back and keep your straight bang.


                                    When Kim K cut her hair everyone was screaming “all hail to the Lob!” This is the perfect cut for ladies who aren’t ready to let go of all their hair. You can even maintain the integrity of your hair by trying it with extensions for a protective style. Playing with color and even going asymmetrical can add a little flare to a shoulder length bob.

                                      This Is Why We Rock!

                                      Untitled design

                                      On the heels of Black and Women’s History month it is the perfect time to let America know why Black Girls Rock. On Easter Sunday Black Girls Rock will air on BET to shed light on all the glorious magnificent women in the black community. From humanitarians, to film makers, to musicians all of this years best will be acknowledged. The nights celebrants include Nadia Lopez a change agent who leads Brooklyn’s Mott Hall Bridges Academy as the acting principle in a city where black youth need a great leader. Dr. Helene D. Gayle will be recognized as a social humanitarian for her work to find a cure for HIV/AIDS. If anyone is a rock star it is definitely Ms. Badu! BET celebrates Erykah Badu for her unforgettable hits and her rock star talent. Badu came out in 1997 and change the world of music. Jada Pinkette Smith is known for her many roles and social causes pushing to uplift young girls. BET is celebrating her for her star power.

                                      In the Black community there are certain names you hear that automatically make you think legend, and Cicely Tyson is one of those people. Starting her career in modeling she accumulated over 50 years of experience in acting. That is why she is be celebrated as a living legend. Last but certainly not least Ava Durvernay, a film maker whose career catapulted after the world was introduced to Selma. From a journalist to a publisist to a film maker BET is honoring Durvernay for being a shot caller.

                                      You know it isn’t a celebration without great performances and oh boy! Will there be great performances. Ciara, Jill Scott, Faith Evans, Fantasia, Shelia E. and yes Ms. Badu are just a few of the great perfumers we should expect to see Sunday at 8pm on BET.

                                        Tameka Raymond Style Theory Tour

                                        Saturday was the Los Angeles stop for Tameka Raymonds Style Theory Tour. Kiyah Wright was one of the guest speakers along with AJ Crimson, Jamal Buster,  and of course Tameka Raymond to provide advice and tips on their area’s of expertise.

                                        Wright provided a little more insight on her journey to success answered a few burning questions, and provided a quick editorial and everyday looks.

                                        The looks were fun, sexy, and most importantly something you can do at home.


                                        Kiyah a few easy clip-ins to add color and fullness in her bang. She also used a little temporary color hair spray to the clip-ins at the base of the clip to blend with her darker roots.


                                        The second volunteer got a full head of clip-ins and Kiyah’s signature curl. This look definitely knocked 10 years off of her!

                                              The best hairstyle would have to go to Kahlana Barfield done by Kiyah Wright! Her makeup was flawless and the cropped wavy bob was THE perfect compliment to her sequence Dolce Gabbana knee length dress.

                                              Solange also sported a textured long bob that we loved!


                                              Which was the perfect cut for her Christian Siriano turtle neck gown.

                                              Next up on our hair radar was Scarlett Johansson. Her edgy cut set her whole look off, in a good way, she must be getting ready for a movie.


                                              The night wouldn’t be complete without shinning light on the queen of serving! JLo

                                              Her look was absolute perfection as always, the ultimate amount of sweet and sexy.


                                              The best look last night was on model Dorith Mous!

                                              That red! That leg! That shoe!


                                              A few of the guys came dressed to kill and we couldn’t leave them out!

                                              David Oyelowo look fine as wine, literally!


                                              Kevin Hart seriously impressed us with his black and white ensemble


                                              Common’s subtle accents on his midnight blue tux were enough to make us take several double takes, which we all didn’t mind doing. Especially after he and John Legend became academy award winners.


                                              Amazing wins and even better looks! The Academy Awards was night to remember.

                                                Grammy’s Glam Party Weekend


                                                The biggest night in music fell upon us, and what a night it was! The weekend was full of events and parties to be seen and see the best of the best. Jennifer Hudson and Ciara decided to share glam teams and keep it fun.  Both beauties had their hair styled by Kiyah Wright and makeup by Yolonda Fredrick. The white of winter was definitely our favorite moment for the talented artist this weekend. Hudson’s simple yet sexy tube dress styled by Eric Archibald showed off her maintained slim figure to the Grammys. Ciara decided to sport a gown that said ” I may have had a baby 9 months ago, but I CAN still kill it” at Clive Davis Pre Grammy Party\. Ciara’s Alexandre Vauthier gown showed off the right amount of the toned up mommy. No spanx required here, all her workouts definitely payed off.

                                                Memorable performances and even domestic violence speeches that brought tears to our eyes. The greatest performance of the night would have to go to Queen Bee although many fans were upset for her lost in Best Album of The Year. Beck won the award and Kanye West jokingly came on stage to reenact the acceptance speech interruption at the VMA’s. It was all in good fun but many took to social media outlets in rage.

                                                Viewers were also able to experience a new arranged version of “Happy” by Pharell which left us smiling just as hard as the first time.  Lady Gaga and Tony Bennet laid a playful duet on us right before Usher payed homaged to Stevie Wonder. Sam Smith and Mary J Blidge provided a performance that penetrated deeper than the original version. “Stay With Me” was a song heart broken lovers could scream to the top of their lungs even if their significant other wasn’t around to hear. The soulfulness of this song won Sam four well deserved  Grammy’s.

                                                All the performances and award winners made the night unforgettable but nothing was more memorable than the attire and more importantly the HAIR!

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.

                                                      Last Looks On OK! Magazine’s Red Carpet Hair Before The Holiday

                                                      If you haven’t picked up a copy of OK! Magazine you should do so before the end of the day. This issue features a young talent gearing up for the American Music Awards. Kiyah Wright covers how she achieved the perfect chocolate brown color on this beauty.


                                                      With the flare collection every woman can achieve color as vibrant as this. The holidays are amongst us and the temperatures are dropping. This makes it easier to lean toward darker tones, just in time for all of your parties and even the new year!


                                                        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!

                                                                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.

                                                                    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.

                                                                      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!





                                                                        Beautiful Autumn: Fall Trends

                                                                        Mane Stream Expo is a five year old hair show in Tampa, Florida that allows stylist the opportunity to show case their talents in competition and through classes.  It also affords brands the chance to push new products. Kiyah Wright traveled to Tampa to speak on the main stage about her journey from “From The Hood To Hollywood” and held her The Look Behind The Lace class, which provided tips for flawless lace front application. 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. The students were filled with useful information and even given the chance to come on stage and help with the styling.

She performed her new single ” It’s your world” featuring R Kelly and “Dangerous” both songs on her new album releasing Sept. 23. Her young edgy hair, styled by Muze’s own Kiyah Wright,  was the perfect compliment to her sparkled high waist shorts, thigh high boots and vest  styled by Eric Archibald her flawless face was done by Yolanda Fredrick.

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!

This is considered the VMA’s highest honor only awarded to artist like Brittany Spears, Janet Jackson, Madonna, and the King of Pop himself.

I felt like their personal and professional situations weren’t being exaggerated. I loved it, bravo!!!

                                                                                                I’m looking forward to season 2.

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?

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?

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.

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

                                                                                                              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.

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.

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.
