Kandi recently debuted this twisted side braid on her social media, making fans go crazy with love for this new look.

With such successes in her career like co-writing the popular song “No Scrubs” for TLC as well as her work writing for Destiny’s Child, Kandi is no stranger to the spotlight and likes to keep her hair styles up to date and trendy. One of her more “talked about” styles to date may have been her super high side ponytail. After seeing this look, not everyone seemed to approve, but we LOVED the super sleek pony! Keep it up Kandi, you’re definitely killing it in our opinion!

We can’t wait to see Sanaa Lathan’s new movie Nappily Ever After. Yes, we know, it’s still a few months away. If we could take a nap till then, we happily would. Sanaa usually wears her hair straight, but her gorgeous smile sends us spiralling. Her new bold move is not bald, it’s a buoyant reminder of the singular possibilities in black beauty.

How Scandalous can Kerry Washington be?

Kerry Washington in her iconic role as Olivia Pope on the hit TV show Scandal has been mesmerizing us with the variety of ways she wears her hair on and off the screen for some time, and we just can’t get enough of her.

Kerry Washington – Mamma we love your Mane

Months into her pregnancy, Kerry let her luscious lioness-like mane beautifully complement her bodacious body at the 2016 Emmy’s. The soft spiralling curls that cascade throughout her ‘let it all hang out’ styled hair softens the frame of her face.

Kerry Washington – ‘Bob-a-licious’

Kerry’s take on this darling hair bob, is reminiscent of an Egyptian queen. The jagged bangs and and uneven cut perfectly frame her face and gently kiss her bedazzled choker.

Kerry Washington – Silky, Straight and Sweet

Just when you expect to see Kerry boasting another ‘oh so ridiculously gorgeous’ hair do, she steps out on the red carpet with this Silky, Straight and Sweet blow out. This simple ‘do’ with a part in the middle is placed delicately behind her shoulders so as not to compete with her off the shoulder dress, and perhaps to show off her flawless skin.

What’s your favorite Kerry Washington hair style? We’d love to know, so share your favorites in the comments section below.

Shereé Whitfield; Are there any Hairstyles she hasn’t tried?

With 3 kids, her own clothing line, a ladies bootcamp and a book tour, it’s clear that The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) Shereé Whitfield can do it all, including fresh new styles at every turn.

One thing we love about Shereé is that when she changes up her style, she goes BIG. She’s had everything from long and dark curls to a jet straight platinum blonde bob, and on top of that she can even rock cute fringe bangs (which everybody knows is not an easy feat).

A signature style that Shereé seems to rotate frequently is the ombré loose wavy lob (long bob). This style is effortless and seems to look good on almost anyone! Keep it up Shereé you are crushing the hair game!

Let us know (in the comments section below) what your fave Shereé hair moment is and what style you think she should try next!!

A black actress continuing the Star Trek legacy is music to our ears. You may have seen her in The Walking Dead and the new Star Trek: Discovery show on CBS. She’s natural, curvy, stylish and pictures of her and her husband Kenric Green remind us of #relationshipgoals.

Sonequa Martin-Green’s optimistic personality shines bright with the twist of black and blonde hair extensions. It is perfect for the summer season giving her a Caribbean cultured look that we aren’t used to seeing her.

Sonequa’s side part is a perfect match for her professional but casual attire. She can easily switch into a dress and keep this naturalista’s hairstyle as is.

Nene Leakes. Known for her outrageous sass and outspokenness, is also no stranger to stealing the spotlight with her always changing “do”.

First debuted in 2012, Nene went for a new blonde pixie cut weave and got RAVE reviews from fans. With such success, it’s no surprise that Miss Leakes has continued to rock this look for several years now.

Following the more sleek version of her pixie style, Nene put a slight spin on it, adding a finger wave to the look in 2013. Although this variation didn’t seem to be as popular, we loved the vintage look and for that reason we say ‘hellz yes!’ to our favourite RHOA drama queen.

Issa glam look! Our top 3 favorite Issa hairstyles

Issa Rae hair style review by Black Hair Spot

We’re super excited for ‘Insecure’ star Issa Rae on becoming the newest fresh face of Covergirl. Issa’s personal style is just as savoury as her personality and we love watching this stunning actress showcase her talent and flawless hair do’s. Not only do we love this IT girl’s quirky style and humour, we also feel proud of her taking a stand on diversity in the entertainment industry. Way to go Issa!

Here are some of our favorite Issa glam looks:

We loved seeing Issa step out onto the 2017 Emmy’s red carpet in this sophisticated up-do. This pulled-back style beautifully showcases her stunning features and the braided crown-bun is the perfect touch to this classy look.

Issa Rae is a Golden Girl

It’s big. It’s bold. It’s all the things we adore about this awkward black girl and star of the hit TV series, ‘Insecure’. The iconic afro hairstyle looks deliciously powerful and untamed here, and we love how the textured brown and gold hues frame Issa’s face. Both on and off the screen Issa continues to showcase that black hair is beautiful and we’re all for it!

Issa Rae’s TWA Perfection

This look is great because it shows how versatile a TWA (teeny, weeny afro) can be. For those transitioning with a big chop, take notes! Issa’s slick edges and luscious curls with vibrant golden hues, makes this hair-do a win in our books.

Laura Mvula: You are going to love this Phenomenal Woman

Laura Mvula hair style review by Black Hair Spot

(Photo Source: https://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/37d067eb-495e-4888-ad97-4b5708ffd3a9)

British R&B/Soul singer, songwriter and producer Laura Mvula is truly a “Phenomenal Woman to. Mvula’s music is so powerful and inspiring, the late great Prince would listen to it before his shows. But that’s not all that is powerful about her. Like many of us, Laura has tried everything from natural to relaxed hair, and worn it well–but we love what she’s doing now! Laura’s shaved look is an effortless and majestic sweep of dignified beauty.

Tessa Thompson is the cutest thing in the West at the 2017 Emmys

Tessa Thompson hair style review by Black Hair Spot

Sometimes you dress for the show and sometimes your hair dictates your choice of dress. We think the latter was the case for the modern, chique look of Tessa Thompson, from the Emmy-nominated show “Westworld. But we only have eyes for her hair. Tessa’s sleek, straight do is cut at a youthful chin length and tucked, oh-so-cutely, behind the ears. Flipped over a side part with a slight poof of the bangs that matches her shapely aquiline face, Tessa’s hair has our nomination.

Uzo Aduba is the new natural at the 2017 Emmys

Uzo Aduba hair style review by Black Hair Spot

Uzo’s gorgeous hair is nothing short of magnificent. The generous wealth of natural curls is as big and as grand as her iconic grin. Symmetrically arranged in a heart-shaped coiffure, with the ends rounded in broad brushstrokes, Ms. Aduba’s hair is like a dazzling painting that uses every colour. And we love every detail of these midnight-black micro-curls. Although her do reminds us of the glittery disco years, Uzo’s flair is all her, and it’s something new.
