Fashion and beauty mavens from around the country strutted around in Brooklyn at the Essence Street Style event during NYFW. The Girlpreneur Guide asked some boss babes for advice on how to slay a bold new hairstyle!
Coils, Coils, Coils
Sophisticated Loc Salon stylist Shaquora Bey created flawless coils at the Shea Moisture booth. “To get this look it’s important to use the right products,” said Bey. “You don’t want to use products that have wax in it or alcohol that could dry out your hair or create build up.” Bey used the Shea Moisture Laydown Lacquer, to slay this look.
Deep Green Afro Hair
“I choose this style because to me it says, ‘Big hair don’t care!’”
Platinum Blonde Box Braids with Side Cut
“I did the color and shaved the side of my head first and then I did the braids. You don’t have to do everything at once, you can take steps.”
Hot Pink Buzz Cut
“I was inspired by unicorns to do this hairstyle! For girls who want to go bold, I’d say just be yourself and be free!”
Ombre Pastel Box Braids
“Don’t be afraid to try something new, because in your head you think it’ll look weird. I was scared to try this color on my hair, but once you try it you might actually like it!”
