Recently I was a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding. I learned a lot about friendships, love and that looking pretty that day trumps everything. If you and your bridal party look amazing all the mishaps and WTF’s seem to fade away into the abyss of never minds.
The older I get the more interested in beauty I am. My mother was my beauty icon. I gaze at her pictures and remember how beautiful she was!
I remember sitting on her bed watching her get ready for dates with my dad. She would literally have to put me out. My mom notoriously used Noxema, and ALWAYS rolled her hair before going to bed. I’ll admit that I am not always that diligent. So it’s obvious that I have loads of ole school tips and tricks that I still swear by.
After five years of growing my natural hair, I began to obsess over length retention and hair growth! I hated this crazy natural hair obsession, so I decided to get my shiny shears and create a new style that reflected who I am as a woman.
Music’s biggest night celebrated the 56th Grammy Awards and stars showed off their “gotta get it” hair styles! Jenny Balding, NYC Cutler/Redken Styling and Grooming Expert, shares her favorite Grammy styles and steps to show you how you can recreate these looks for your personal red carpet event.
You beauties know that I am here for everything glam! So I was all spirit fingers and giddy girl smiles when I got an email from my loves over at BET asking me to host their New York city stop of the “Being Mary Jane” Holiday Glam Nail Salon Tour presented by Revlon.
With New Year’s Eve just days away, some of us may be faced with the pressures of looking fabulous for the evening’s festivities filled with best friend selfies and midnight kisses. I mean, let’s face it, no one wants to look dull and boring. If you are like me, you’ve tried many, many, many styles and now you’re yearning for something fun, funky, and fabulous. Looking for those styles can take up a lot of time and effort (Ain’t nobody got time for that)!
