  • What Are Corset Braids?

    Hi Dames! There are new braid styles hitting the gram and I wanted to bring them to surface to show you what’s the happs!  They were first seen on Erika Jayne done by Clyde Haygood and Rita Ora done by Cesar Ramirez. Corset braids are 2 corn rows with a bit of distance between them and connected together through a string woven in between the braids. This resembles a corset lace up. Clyde did it going straight down the middle of the braid making the braid itself look like a corset. Bottom line, buy some string and have fun! Check out the video below to see how it looks !

  • Is Pink Hair Still In This Summer?

    Dames! Pink hair for summer yes please!! Rose Gold, blorange, baby pink, red pink, purple pink, melting into pink, you name it , its cool and in for summer. I myself just did a rendition of rose gold color and I’m obsessed! I never want to wash my hair! You can do it to. If you already have blonde highlights and you just want it for a few days, its so easy to do for a quickie look.  It will wash out (don’t use punky color).  Take any manic panic color that you like, mix it with white conditioner and put it on your hair when its wet, comb it through and leave for 10 min.

     

    ***Quick Tip** When you mix the pink with the conditioner, whatever color you see in the bowl will be the color in your hair.

    Have fun Dames this summer!

  • Spring into Hair Color

    Sombre-hair-colors-2016-1

    The Best way to boil down the spring hair color trend is with one word- Sombre. Sombre means soft ombre. No matter what color your hair is; blonde, red, or brunette, its time to create the lightbox around your face and brighten up for the warm weather. There’s definately diferent levels to sombre, you can be as natural or as dramatic as you wish, but the idea is to have a darker root and lighter ends, but the soft part is to have highlights that break up the root and blend into the lighter ends.. Here’s a few examples that we love.

    Blondes- Honey to platinum, short to long. Here’s some of our fav’s.

    Texture is usually always on trend in the summer. Time to let our natural wave go and get a little body, texture and frizz ( the good kind). However its not just summer. Its a go big or go home few seasons in general.  Whether your putting your hair into a ponytail, an up do, or you have short hair, long hair, a polished style, a messy style.. all of it needs texture!  How can you bring out your natural texture?  Let your hair air dry, use beach sprays, texture sprays, and even if you blow dry it and curl it with an iron get in there and back comb  it then spray your favorite texture spray.  Here are a few examples of what we mean:

  • Messy Hairstyles for Classy Parties

    texture

    As we all know its summertime. Summer calls for a few Trends when it comes to hairstyles and looking good, 1 is braids, 2 is texture, 3 is parties. Now, there is a fine line between texture that looks intended and a hot mess. You don’t want to be the hot mess. How do we know what how to be classy instead of messy? Let The hair Dame show you the difference…

     

    ClASSY

    HOT MESS

    HOT MESS

    Dont do this to your self. YOu can make big messy hair look classy and these are the rules on how to do it….

     

    Rule #1-

    You need half of the hairstyle polished and groomed. If your wearing a messy ponytail, make sure the sides and top are sleek and slicked. If your doing a messy braid, make sure only the braid is messy and the sections going into it are neat. If your wearing a braid as an accessory mixed in with loose hair, make sure the loose hair has a shape and is somewhat polished .

    Rule #2-

    Make sure your teased hair is covered properly. Tease all day, but polish the hair on top so we dont see a rats nest up in there.

    Rule #3-

    Big hair needs a shape or you will look like hot mess barbie up above. Create a wave in your hair and brush it out if you want a thick voluminous look. you can tease the inside and make it big, but dont leave it straight and stringy.
