        Celebrity Hair Trends

        Every women wants to achieve their favorite celebrities hair style especially those who are trendy.  Wether you’re natural wearing extensions or interested in trying something new we have the update on the most sought out styles.

        We can always count on Kim Kardashian to have the perfect middle part loose curl styles. Even when her hair is light the style isn’t far from perfection. To achieve Kim K’s signature look use a 1 1/2 inch curling iron wrapping medium size sections around the barrel away from your face.  If you you’re wearing a weave make sure you have the perfect installation so your hair falls properly on your face.

        For all you girls wearing your natural or rocking a medium length weave Taraji P. Henson’s version of a loose curl is perfect. This style can be achieved with the similar technique but using a 1 inch iron will help in making this curl for medium length hair. Your hair has to be at least four inches in the front to achieve this style with a side bank but shorter bangs will also be super cute.

        Short is is so in! No one rocks a short do better than rock star Rihanna! Her classic pixie is easy to manage and perfect for framing your face. To achieve this look (after your cut of course) use a 1/2 inch curling run your fingers through it and add a little hairspray or styling wax so it stays in place.

          Hat Hair: The Fashionable Way

          The lower the temperatures get the more likely fashionesta are to add additional accessories, hats honey! We also know that adding a hat to your ensemble isn’t always about being stylish, sometimes you just can’t get your hair right and a hat is the perfect way to top it off.

          Our favorite hat and most versitile for long locks is the floppy hat. This piece can be added to loose waves or the perfect touch to a side braid.

          For shorter hair caps and hats that have height are perfect to balance out cropped cuts. The baseball cap Lauryn Hill is wearing is the perfect accent to her vintage look.

          Bobs require more structured hats like the Tyrolean, Porkpie, Fedora, and this hip version of the Bowler. Asymmetrical bobs pair well with hats that leave your face less open. If you’re rocking a bang stick to a hat that sits on the crown of your head.

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

              werk-that-braid-750x460

              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.

              3stran-fishtail-1

              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.

              waterfall-braid-1

              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.

              halo-braid-1

              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.

                  Queen Latifah’s asymmetrical bob is a great style to frame your face and give a classic bob some sass.

                  For women who are feeling a little more daring a side swept fringed pixie is a big step in the right direction. Ethnic hair will require a relaxer to maintain this look but it is well worth the rocker style that’s achieved.

                  Remember J Huds super cute pixie at Fashion Rocks? This is a great alternative if you desire a shorter bang. This edgy crop was styled by Kiyah Wright of course!

                  Last but certainly not least you can add some demision to your current length by adding  deep layers. Layers are a hip way to change your style without taking off too much length and you can keep your ponytails and buns.

                    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!

                      Fall began this week,  with the changing leaves and shorter days come shows we run home to watch. Thank God for the ability to record these shows! While viewers are raving about the incredible prime time television they experienced this week, we were zoned in on the leading ladies hair. The week started off with Jada Pinkett Smith at 8pm on Gotham and Nicole Beharie at 9pm on Sleepy Hollow.  The network gave us a break to collect ourselves and then threw in the funny on Wednesday with Tracee Ellis Ross on Black-ish a refreshing hilarious take on a wealthily black family. As the clock struck twelve and gladiators all over America prepared for the countdown to Shondaland! Thursday brought us three amazing shows written by Shonda Rhimes and two casted black women as the shows’ leading lady. Kerry Washington has been on Scandal for 4 seasons now, a show that has any fan rearranging their schedule to be on their couch at 9pm. This year we got another hour to run from reality TV and binge on the writings of Rhimes. The 10pm slot was reserved for an American legal drama series starring Viola Davis.  This seasons’ leading ladies are sporting a combination of black hair trends which include: full wigs, natural looking extensions, and God given curled tresses brought to us by Tracee’s parents. Whatever your preference for this year’s fall hair, these 5 ladies will be stunning in traditional favorites.

                        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.

                          Lace Front Questions? Kiyah Has Answers

                          Cicely-Tyson

                          Most people reference wigs back to their grandmothers full, part-less, absent hairline pieces. The kind that clearly add twenty to forty years on your life easily. Many woman are not comfortable with the idea of wearing wigs because they aren’t quit sure how to keep their look young while still wearing a full piece. Celebrity hair stylist Kiyah Wright has spent large amounts of time applying, coloring, and styling lace front wigs. She has mastered the concept of natural young lace front application and killer styling to compliment that perfect piece. We wanted to give other stylist and clients the opportunity to pick Kiyah’s brain about front lace wigs.

                          Commonly asked questions include:

                          Why should I wear a lace front wig, what will it do for my hair?

                          Kiyah: “A lace front wig is like the perfect everyday hat, it protects your hair from the sun and natural damage, it also protects your hair from heat and color damage while maintaining a consistent look.”

                          Why is it important to invest in a quality lace front wig?

                          Kiyah: It’s best to buy 3-4 wigs to cover every season that way the wigs will last if you take care of them… and maintain them. Cheap lace front wigs thin and fall apart easily.”

                            Nicholas K set the pace with a breath taking safari middle eastern story of full coverage and head wrap fashions.

                            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.

                                  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.

                                            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.

                                            When my favorite celebrity stylist offered me the chance to get a complete hair transformation at her Muze Suites salon in Los Angeles, I couldn’t contain my excitement.

                                            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.

                                            Watch me change my hair and change my life with Kiyah Wright.

                                                      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.

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.

                                                                  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!
