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)!
Being that I am a new mommy of a beautiful five-week-old baby boy, my love for long sessions in the vanity putting on my makeup had to change. On the average, it use to take me about thirty minutes to an hour to complete my everyday makeup look. In between feedings, burping and changing diapers, that amount of time spent on my makeup no longer flies in this household!
From attempting to go natural, to doing the big chop, to my now infamous mohawk that I still rock yet no one remembers–you beauties have been with me every step of my hair journey. A little over a six months ago, I had this idea to grow my hair out. I was feening for a Cassie ponytail and I am determined to achieve it before the summer hits.
