    nyfw-1024x640

    The past week has been filled with jaw dropping fashion from some of our favorite designers. New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion week is an event fashion lovers talk about all year. The seven days are jam packed with season trends, innovation, and exceptional showmanship.  Nicholas K, BCBG, and Meskita kicked of the week with fantastic flare for the perfect introduction to an amazing fashion week.

    Nicholas K set the pace with a breath taking safari middle eastern story of full coverage and head wrap fashions. The color story included army and olive greens, sand dune tan, black, ivory, smokey grey and just when we were thirsty for color they threw in a splash of blue.

    The hair and makeup was simple but captivating. Sleek low ponytails were the perfect compliment to the bold liner hidden under crafty sunglasses. This show possessed a air of sensual seduction with little skin and lots of face.

    With an eleven year old brand David Tlale kept the fashion freezing a flame with his modern South African collection. On top of the amazing sequence of his show Tlale’s collection was a quintessential combination of hard tribal prints and soft silk silhouettes.

    His designs were complimented by textured hair. Pinned middle part bobs, crimps, and waves were in full affect in this show. The perfect marriage of natural hair and artistic expression.

    Just when we all were going to explode from jam packed days of back to back fashion shows some of the hottest musicians came together to celebrate fashion in a star studded concert.

    Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj gave us a healthy serving of Booty, while Rita Ora represented the U.K. in her energy filled performance. Jennifer Hudson kept the crowd moving with here incredible vocals over her new singles. Her slim frame was fashioned with fishnet stocking, high waist shorts and thigh high boots.  Her hair was just as young and sexy as her outfit styled by Kiyah Wright.

    Calvin Klein ended the week with the legendary quote “less is more”. His collection included rich simple pieces in cool subtle patriotic hues of cream, ivory, royal and navy blue, metallics , and a sporadic pop of red.

    Klein followed the trend of sleek styles with tight low buns at the nape of every models head. This like many other complimenting looks during fashion week helped in bringing more attention to the face and the fashions frame it.

    Fashion week closed out with a special presentation from Art Hearts Fashion by The AIDS Health Care Foundation. Putting a little purpose behind our passion for fashion.

    Every season designers present new styles that become long standing trends. Along with every vision comes a hairstyle that adds the perfect finishing touches to their picturesque works of art. This spring we can plan to get our faces flawless for styles that frame our fierce miens; sleek back buns, straight tresses tucked behind the ears, and effortless loose curls are all looks we will see very soon.

          Gabrielle Union And Dwayne Wade Tie The Knot

          unnamed-1

          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!

            Get The Look: Jennifer Hudson’s Curly Pompadour Styled by Kiyah Wright

            Celebrity stylist Kiyah Wright is one of the top go-to celebrity stylists in the industry. Here she explains just how she created a curly pompadour for Jennifer Hudson!

            1. Start with freshly shampooed and conditioned tresses.

            2. Using a ½-inch barrel curling iron, begin creating a mass of curls all over the head from the crown to the kitchen – that is, the neck. Kiyah likes a Gold ‘N Hot curling iron to do the trick!

            3. Tightly pull the sides and back of hair into a twist and pin, leaving a mass of curls to fall freely at the crown. Make sure your twist is secured with bobby pins. And use plenty of hairspray to smooth the sides and hold the twist in place. Kiyah suggests the Last Look finishing hairspray by Muze Hair, which is a light, flexible spray that allows comb-ability while styling.

            4. Smooth edges with a Tancho wax stick.

            5. Fluff and tease curls at the crown.

            6. For the finishing touch, apply hairspray 10 inches away, all over hair to smooth flyaways and set the pompadour.

              What’s Just Wright for Fall Hair Styles

These are all easy styles that you can dress down or dress up. With the arrival of autumn comes the time to serve face. A middle part and a tight low ponytail is a great way to glam up your look if your hairstyle is past due. If you’re looking for a little volume you can pull back your curled or waved hair in to a bun in the back of your head.

                    One of my favorite things about Love In The City was watching Kiyah Wright work her hair magic on  stars like Gabrielle Union and Jennifer Hudson.

                    Between years of chemical relaxers, blow-drying and flat-ironing and a cut I didn’t love, I was in need of some serious hair help.

                    Luckily, Kiyah came to the rescue just in time with a total transformation and tons of tips and tricks for keeping my hair healthy and happy.

                              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.

                              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.

                              My greatness is measured by my gifts, not by my possessions.  I have collaborated with Jessica Grant and the Grant School of Etiquette. 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.

                              Early 1950’s bar there is music playing, smoke filled bar, before the night of fun and laughter ends Charles asked his date Ann, “What’s your name?” Ann cheekily replied “Susan Carol”.   That is the way my story begins. 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.

                                          bangs 3.30 post

                                          1. Caramel and ombre roots play up the beauty of Elle’s brown complexion!

                                          2. Going for wider set bangs starting at each high cheekbone cuffing her face frames it nicely.

                                          3. Use a razor cut to layer the bangs when they are full. This avoids overly blunt, heavy bangs.

                                          4. Then sharpen the frame for a finishing touch.

                                          5. Use a 1in barrel to create a tousled edgy look but you must leave the ends straight to achieve that edge.

                                          6. Viola! She’s ready for Easter Weekend and she will look fabulous the entire time!

                                          Note: To create the ombre look we used Clairol Liquid Permanente Color 8N for the caramel color and for the 3in roots Clairol Liquid Permanente Color 3N.
