                          A twist out is a fun sexy way to maintain the integrity of your hair while keeping it touchable soft.

                          These easy steps will have you ready for your date and leave him drooling at the mouth.

                          Step 1. Start with clean fresh damp hair, section your hair into 1 inch sections and using your favorite products to add moisture and shine.

                          Step 2. Twist each section to the end around your fingers in a curl pattern.

                          Step 3. Sit under the dryer for at least 30 minutes or until your hair is completely dry. This is important for appropriate curl pattern.

                          Step 4. Unravel twist gently to avoid frizz or busting a wave.

                          Step 5. Separate twist a second time, this will add volume and fullness.

                          Step 6. Add your favorite oil for a beautiful sheen… and your done!

                          Bonus Tip! If your hair is a little dull apply a semi-permenant rise to add a healthy shine.

                            Natural Hair: Holiday Up-Do’s

                            The Holiday season means trendy fun hairstyles. It also means evening up-do’s! If you’re natural we have the perfect funky style to pump up your natural look. Give your bantu knots and twist outs a break and try this mohawk, no heat necessary.hair bride 11

                            Simply put your hair into three small buns (if your hair is shoulder length or shorter). Place them at the top of your head, at the crown of your head, and close to the nape of your neck. Make sure your sides and edges are smooth, you can use gel and/or edge control. We recommend Ecostyler gel and ORS Olive Oil Edge Control. Once your hair is in place, you can add some natural hair extensions and pin them in place. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your shapes. To save some money you can add kanekalon or Marley hair like Nicole Ari Parker.

                            If you have mega growth and your natural hair is longer than shoulder length, you can separate your hair into three pony tails and twist and pin your hair into place.

                              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. Another reason would be a hat is every women’s all time favorite  remedy for a bad hair day.

                                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.

                                      Fall Chops and Crops

                                      This fall is all about shorter hair. Long dramatic locks are slowly fading leaving room for fun funky trends. This season is the time to play with layers and length. Lose the floor length extensions and get into these popular looks!

                                      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.

                                        Kiyah Wright travels the country in hopes of perfecting weaves and increasing incomes. Stylist sign up for an extensive, hands on, intense learning experience. During the class Wright breaks down the perfect weave step by step, but you better get it right the first time because ” Boot Camp Betty”  will have you “take it down”. Many of the students come to the class confident in their braiding patterns and weaving techniques, but once they are introduced to all the secrets of a quality weave they soon find out they have a lot to fix. With the explosion of quick weaves and fast corner cutting, everyone is trying to achieve the best weave in the shortest amount time. What many stylist fail to understand is cutting quality to decrease time cheats your customer and will discourage them from coming back. Your end result will be less money and a bad reputation.

                                        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.

                                          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!

                                            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.”

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.

Along with every vision comes a hairstyle that adds the perfect finishing touches to their picturesque works of art.

                                                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.

                                                                                Q.
                                                                                Hi Kiyah! I’m one of your YouTube subscribers!
                                                                                I was wondering which shampoo and conditioner would be best to use because for severely damaged hair… Now that i have been using a regular "fox hills mall" flatiron at home for about a year, my hair has been breaking like crazy! I wear the clip-in hair extensions as well but i would like to get back to wearing my natural hair but its so badly damaged that i depend on the slip ins, i just wanted to know what are some products or deep conditioning treatments that can help me get back to healthy hair! Thanks! -Brittany

                                                                                A. Hey Brittany! It depends on what your maintenance and style is. I can give you general advice though. For moisturizing store brands I like Mizani, Keracare, Motions. The conditioners I love are Motions and L’OREAL – which has a deep conditioner in a jar they sell at Sally’s beauty supply store that is targeted at colored-treated, damaged hair

                                                                                  Summer Highlights – break up your hair color with an array of honey-colored tips. Fresh, fun, flirty and summer-friendly! Get it girls!

                                                                                      WRIGHT-ISM #8 – NATURAL HAIR MAINTENANCE

                                                                                      “Natural hair is my absolute favorite! It’s thicker and holds a lot more body. Be sure to use products with plenty of hydration and moisture. These types of shampoos and conditioners keep the hair feeling lustrous and shiny. My number one maintenance tip is to sleep on a satin pillow case at night. Also, to enhance that shine use a silicone based shine serum like “Simply Styling ” in the squeeze bottle. Get it girl!”
