Break-out Star DeWanda Wise Definitely Has It

 

DeWanda Wise - She's Gotta Have it by Spike Lee

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1986622/

2017 was a big year for break-out star DeWanda Wise.  After appearing on the big screen for the first time in Shots Fired, Wise has gone on to star in popular shows such as Underground  and the Netflix drama She’s Gotta Have it where she plays a free-spirited artist juggling her love life and career. From the looks of it, it seems that we’ll be seeing a lot more of this talented actress whose already making waves on the red carpet with her fiery, spunky style.

1. Retro  Babe

This side parted milk braid looks simple but chic when paired with a dark lip colour and bold eyes.

Wise proves that switching up her style is no hard thing. This short, flared cut with bangs is cute but also fashion-forward. We love the baggy sweater and red lip worn by Wise to add some depth to this look.

3. Kinky Chic

We love the softness of this look and the way it frames DeWanda face.

Nothing says black girl magic quit like golden goddess locs worn here by Wise.

Golden Girl Jill Scott

 

http://www.jillscott.com/

Jill Scott is a singer/songwriter, grammy award winning artist and serious hair goals icon. In 2000 she broke into the music game with her smooth, sultry voice with hits like A Long Walk and Honey Molasses. Her debut album Who is Jill Scott received positive acclaim and received a Soul Train music award for best R&B/Soul Album-female. Since then she’s expanded her artistry as an actor, appearing in movies like Why Did I Get Married? And Get on Up. From her music to her sweet, sophisticated style we salute this Golden Girl and take a peek at the looks that inspired us the most.

Afro Glory

Ms. Scott is slaying this perfectly coiffed afro. The crown braids are a nice touch and heighten the retro vibe of this look.

The Pixie Cut

If the pixie cut could evolve to achieve grown woman status – this is what it would look like. Recreate this look with shaved our sleek sides and tumbling layers to frame your face.

Platinum Bombshell

We love how Jill Scott isn’t afraid to step out of the box when it comes to her hair or her music for that matter. Here she shakes things up with a platinum blonde pixie cut.

One of the things we love the most about Nicole Ari Parker is her ability to bring fresh, exciting styles to the table – without fail. Nicole isn’t afraid to change it up yet she always seems to slay with the same effortless charm. Talent and soul wrapped up into one versatile beauty has us cheering for this ‘It’ girl and all the things she has and will accomplish in her flourishing career.

1. Breezy Beauty

Nicole trades her golden-hued tresses in for low maintenance twists. As a mom of two Nicole knows how to get glam without all the fuss. This look is a great example of a super stylish yet easy-to-manage protective style. Add bright and vibrant colours to your twists to keep things interesting.

2. The Right Cut

Everything about this low-cut is a win. From the honey and platinum blonde hues to the faded sides and tousled bangs.

3. And Anotha One

I think it’s safe to say Nicole Ari Parker is the official Queen of the low-cut hairstyle.

4. TWA Triumph!

Who doesn’t love a simple TWA? We sure can’t get enough of natural beauties boldly rocking their own hair. This TWA is paired perfectly with Nicole’s natural glowing skin and a subtle pink lip.

The Queen Still Rules

https://www.thefamouspeople.com/profiles/queen-latifah-5077.php

Queen Latifah has long been in the game as a Grammy award winning rapper, record producer and actress. Her debut album All Hail the Queen (1989) put her at the top of the list of female MC’s to this day. After countless successes on and off the big screen- including an Oscar nomination for her role in Chicago, the Queen continues to show up when it comes to her flawless style.

Jada Pinkett Smith

https://www.essence.com/celebrity/black-celeb-couples/jada-pinkett-smith-girls-trip-will-smith-grapefruit-method

Time has flown by since we first saw Jada Pinkett Smith light up the stage on a Different World or lead the most iconic bank heist in all of movie history (personally speaking). No matter the decade we can still count on this diva to serve us a mix of fresh stylspiration. Ffrom the technicolor flare of the 80’s to the sweet sophistication of the 2000’s Jada shows us that true beauty and class never go out of style.

1.   Pixie-licious

http://ew.com/article/2016/01/18/jada-pinkett-smith-oscars-boycott/

This pixie cut is everything! We love how this cut frames Jada’s fine features. The layer of mystery created by the messy side-part bang also makes this entire look a win in our books.

2.  Dejavu

3. Fashion Chameleon

jada pinkett smith

http://www.instyle.com/celebrity/transformations/jada-pinkett-smiths-changing-looks

One thing we love about Jada is her fearlessness when it comes to changing up her look. These light and fluffy curls are very different from her normal straight and sleek look, but then again there’s nothing ordinary about this flawless style icon!

Kenya, Moore than just a Pretty Face

Kenya Moore, known for her winning role as Miss USA 1993,  also has a hold on both the business and film industry. Moore has not only acted in, but also produced and helped write many films and tv shows.

Ms. Moore has her own successful hair care line as well called Kenya Moore Hair Care which focuses on helping women with all different hair types grow their hair longer as well as enhance thickness and strength. Her  line of hair products boasts a sulfate, phosphate and paraben free composition.

Kenya’s impressively long locks are her own natural hair which she tends to wear in very simple styles and is rarely seen up in ponytails or buns. Moore seems to prefer her hair worn either straight, with a slight wave, or in barrel curls of various sizes.

After seeing this successful lady’s locks, we can’t help but wonder if the secret to her beautiful hair lies in her hair care line. If so, it is definitely time to pick up some of those products!

Regina Hall Shines Brighter Than Ever Before

The clouds in the sky have cleared for actress Regina Hall, 47 – allowing her to shine like the bright star that she is.  After years of playing supporting roles in a string of well known movies, Regina Hall has finally stepped out into the spotlight as the leading lady in movies like When the Bough Breaks and Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.

In her most recent movie, Girls Trip,  Hall stars alongside equally famous baddies Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish for the wildest all-girl comedy to date.

From what we can tell the spotlight, (and basically everyone) is loving this gorgeous and talented lady. Looking at Hall’s most stylish moments it’s easy to see why!

Tiffany Haddish Saturday Night Live - Black Hair Spot

https://www.bet.com/style/fashion/2017/11/08/see-tiffany-haddishs-boss-af-saturday-night-live-photoshoot.html

This past summer, funny-girl Tiffany Haddish lit up the big screen with her first major role in the movie Girls Trip. Since exploding on the scene, Tiffany has flaunted a variety of grown-and-sexy style choices featuring everything from long, loose curls to chic, face-framing bobs. From what we can see so far, the future looks bright for this young show-stopper. And while we continue to crack-up at her hilarious antics, we’re confident there’s nothing funny about this break-out star’s eye for fashion or her ability to rock any look.

Encore!

10 Hollywood Black Women and their Children

  1. Beyonce and Blue Ivy

    Can anyone really be surprised that Queen B and her babe are first on our list? The first photo highlights Beyonce rocking blonde braids while Blue Ivy embraces her natural baby hair. In the second photo, Bey goes with one of her staple looks, long blonde ombre beach waves while Blue pulls off corn row braids so very adorably. In the third pic, Bey has brushed out her usually sleek locks to create a volumized edgy look while Blue rocks a baby fro. These two are the epitome of an unstoppable mother daughter duo.

  3. Halle Berry and daughter Nahla

    https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/509680882799483899/?lp=true

    Voted “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” in 2003 by People magazine, Halle Berry is certainly no stranger to the spotlight and her hair has been something of a controversy in moments of her life. Although Ms. Berry does have gorgeous natural curls, she often wears her hair straightened and for several years, wore her hair in an adorable, but initially debated pixie cut. Both her daughter Nahla and her son Maceo have been blessed with her natural curls and good looks! We love that Halle Berry wears the “classic Hollywood” straight beach waves look from time to time, and glad that it’s not her only look.

  4. Jada Pinkett Smith and daughter Willow and son Jaden

    We all know the Pinkett-Smith family and for good reason. This clan seems to reach all corners of Hollywood from hit-singles to acting in box office movies to playing on pro sports teams, they are everywhere. Daughter Willow and son Jaden seem to be the most outgoing and adventurous with their hairstyles while mama Jada plays it safe and dad (Will) and half brother (Trey) leave that spotlight to the others. Jada is often seen wearing slightly more sleek and sophisticated straightened styles while both Willow and Jaden seem to embrace an edgier  “more colour and height the better” mentality.

    Beloved star of Empire, Taraji P. Henson is known for her edgy style and attitude but doesn’t seem to get noticed a ton for her hair. Generally she plays it fairly safe with her hairstyles  but always manages to keep her styles sleek and sexy. Taraji has one son Marcel Johnson who she seems to adore according to online interviews with the successful mama.

    These two are the SWEETEST mommy daughter duo! It’s clear from all the photos that Viola truly loves and cherishes her little girl named Genesis. It would seem that Viola keeps her daughter’s hair natural experimenting with little pony-puffs! While Viola has been known to embrace her natural twisted hair at times, she is often seen as well with a bob length weave either straight or curled.

    Wow to this mom and daughter pair. Just wow. Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross truly do have some of the best curls out there. Neither of these ladies have ever been afraid to let their curls go wild and crazy which is so amazing, they both know how to embrace their hair. Tracee especially has been seen sporting such a wide range of hairstyles that it’s hard to keep up, but with a mama like Diana Ross, it’s no surprise that Tracee wants to make her mark in Hollywood history!

    Whoopi Goldberg, a comedy legend to many has always had a signature hairstyle… dreads. Dressed up or down, Whoopi stays true to her classic dreadlocks which have become a part of her staple image. Whoopi’s daughter Alex on the other hand tends to stick with her hair straightened and an occasional brushed out ringlet curl here and there.

    Besides the fact that this mother daughter pair look eerily similar, wow are they beautiful! This breathtaking duo seem to have a similar style not only with their clothing but when it comes to their hair. Both Lisa and daughter Zoe tend to keep their locks very long and often going for a slightly “unkempt” edgy look. These ladies have often been seen with some variation on a classic braid or twist and seem to stay very natural with their colours. Although Lisa Bonet does have another daughter and one son, Zoe Kravitz definitely steals the spotlight and it’s not hard to see why!

Not only is she extremely beautiful but she’s got talent and style! Jennifer never seems to get too attached to any specific hairstyle, it’s clear that she loves variety and is willing to try lots of new styles.  And, no matter what, she’s got her son David as her cutest accessory!

This talented model and actress has always been very open with the fact that she wears a weave and we think that’s great! Almost a year ago now, Tyra welcomed baby son York into her life and with her genes, he’s sure to be a heartbreaker.

Recording artist Janelle Monae has long been known for her quirky, fun personality. Her music and style scream unconventional and for that we are grateful. With a fresh take on music and love for her natural tresses Monae has been an inspiration for every kind of black woman who  refuses to be placed in a box. From futuristic to wonderland-esque fashion choices, Monae gives us all what we never knew we wanted.

https://hellogiggles.com/hair/janelle-monaes-gold-wrapped-updo-modern-goddess-style-need-try/

Who says you can’t wrap a golden wire through a messy bun? Well if it’s never been done before you can be confident Monae is going to be the first to try it. We love this look because it challenges the notion that natural hair looks “unkempt” or “unsophisticated”. Monae sure isn’t afraid to let us all know that what we see is what we get when it comes to her wildly beautiful tresses.

We See You Boo

And this is why we love Janelle Monae, as if we needed any other reason. Googly eyes on pom-poms with a side-swept bang-why not?

Lupita Nyong’o is Our Big Chop Hero

In 2014 she was named the World’s Most Beautiful Woman by People’s Magazine, but to us Lupita Nyong’o will always be the champion of the TWA (teeny weeny afro) and our Big Chop Hero. This Oscar award winning actress bravely did the Big Chop at the age of 19 after her father jokingly mentioned she should cut off her hair because maintaining her relaxed hair was too expensive.

As we can imagine, it was a lot to consider. “I spent days thinking about it first,” she says about the decision. “Once I did it, it was very liberating, but I also felt very naked. When you feel the wind on your scalp, it’s like, Oh, my God. But I’ve kept my hair short ever since.”

And we are all thankful she did! Here is Lupita rocking her stunning signature look in a variety of styles and cuts.

Breath of Fresh Air

Unconventional  Beauty

Just as I am

Not only do we admire Lupita’s ability to mix-up her look, we love her refusal to ascribe to a conventional form of beauty. In an interview with People Magazine Lupita spoke about how her view of beauty once equalled “light skin and long, flowing hair.” We thank this stunning actress for challenging those stereotypes and being a representation of bold, black beauty.

Solange Knowles: A Visionary Style Icon

For a long time the world simply knew her as Beyonce’s little sister. But not anymore. This songstress has carved out her own space in the entertainment industry with a fresh sound and unique look. She has a flare all her own and has never failed to stay true to her soul – a virtue that helped her write songs for her album, A Seat at the Table (2015). The album which doubled as a personal memoir and social commentary, launched the star into a class few could contend with, quickly making her a visionary and fashion icon for this generation.

Oprah Winfrey: A Celebrity Style Story

When it comes to Oprah Winfrey we could say a lot – like how inspiring she is to the millions of black women who enjoyed watching her talk shows, or how her openness and honesty has encouraged others on their journey of self-empowerment. One thing we couldn’t say about this media mogul however, is that she has become irrelevant over the years. Since staking her claim as the talk-show Queen in 1986, Oprah’s influence has grown and evolved much like her personal style.

Go Bold or Go Home

Stylespiration: Insecure’s Yvonne Orji

Stunning both on and off the big screen, this Nigerian born actress is best known for playing the fierce and stylishly clad Molly, on HBO’s hit series ‘Insecure.’ We’ve seen Yvonne serve us fresh style ever since the show hit the air in 2016, and we can’t wait to see what this femme fatale has in store for season 3. For this celebrity corner we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite Yvonne looks, which we admit was ‘hella hard’ to do.

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!!
