Celebrity Runway Spotlight: Kendall Jenner in Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2015

Each fashion season, Karl Lagerfeld hand-picks a ‘bride’ to close his couture show; someone he deems to be the star of his runway. Calling on the 19-year-old to open and close his spectacular, Kendall wore a modern reinterpretation of the classic Chanel suit complete with a train to close proceedings. HAIR & MAKEUP Kendall Jenner channeled a porcelain doll at the Chanel Fashion Show in Paris, France on July She wore bright pink cheeks, a bold red lip and a black, blunt bob on the runway representing the strong and independent  look modern woman. Kendall’s brows were defined with a nearly black brow filler without an arch, which took away some of the softness of her face. Her eyes were free of mascara and eyeliner aside from a white pencil used on her bottom lid to create a wide-eye appearance. To add even more intensity to her look, Kendall’s hair was styled bone straight in a middle part, leaving all of the focus on her beautiful skin.

Trend Alert: Ombre & Block Coloured Braids!!!

Hey guys, So, it’s been five weeks since I took my braids out and I’m wondering what next to do. Now before I go on you should know that am a braid freak, but I’m always wearing the same colours; black and brown and it’s kind of gotten a bit boring recently. But I’ve recently seen alot of new colours appearing on the radar, it seems like everywhere I turn someone else I know has taken the plunge and jumped on the coloured braids gang.  I personally blame Lola Maja-Okojevoh.  She was always dying her hair one colour or another, pink .. purple.. blue.. red.. blonde. The list never ends. Then she decided to give her hair a rest but noooo she couldn’t be normal like the rest of us, she just had to find a way to be different. There have been quite a few other braid rebels over the last few months including Stephanie Coker, Toyin Lawani and Kristabel Asimonye rocking bright pink, blue and even green braids!   Even on Instagram there …

DIY: BRAIDED HAIRSTYLES

Hey everyone, So I came across this fabulous youtube channel “cute girl’s hairstyles”, and I was wowed!!!! It’s such an irony though that in a country like ours where we regularly do alot of braids that we don’t see some of these creative styles. These things should be a norm for us. This lady does amazing things with braids, I’m in awe of her creativity. The best part is, some of these hairstyles takes about 3 minutes or less to get them done Nigerians!!!!! We need to step up and be creative…. there are so many things to do, one just needs to think outside the box. Anyway, before I start going off the topic at hand *siiiiigh*…..:( LOL! Here are some of her videos. Lets learn new haistyles and go rocking *wink* “DOUBLE-TWISTED BUN UP DO” “WATERFALL TWISTS INTO MERMAID BRAIDS!” “STACKED TWIST PONYTAIL” I could have posted 10 of her videos if I wanted to, but that’s just going to be too much. looool In the meantime, let me know what you think. And you …

DIY OMBRE HAIR BY BACKSYNCFAN

Hey everyone, It’s DIY Wednesday…… *drum roll* So today, we will be doing a “DIY OMBRE HAIR”. Ombre hair has been trending for quite a while now, and still is. But I happen to be one of those who would rather treat my weave myself than give it to someone to do it for me. The first time I ever tried giving my new weave to a stylist she messed up my hair so bad,I regretted ever thinking about it and then going ahead to give her the weave to highlight for me. I love highlights on my hair so much! Towards the end of last year and early this year I had a signature hairstyle going on for months….. One time it was purpe, and then I did blue, red, and white lol. I was having fun playing with colors and I loved it. Pregnancy however, made me go on a break……:( *sigh*. Can’t wait to bounce back looooool. It’s not like I can’t do it now, afterall it would be done on a …
