Taraji P. Henson...Dante Blandshaw & Aveda for High Shine!

Must we restate the obvious? BSB LOVES SHINY HAIR! Let me tell you belles, when we saw Taraji P. Henson featured on The George Lopez Show, we were literally blinded by the mirror shine from her mane! We figured if Taraji can bling like that, so can we! Our path to the truth behind the shining light, led us to the one-and-only, Dante Blandshaw! Mr. Blandshaw is a renowned celebrity hair stylist…Taraji swears by him! See the article below courtesy of Sophisticate’s Black Hair Styles and Care Guide & Dante Blandshaw to learn more about how he achieved this high shine look..

"This is a clean, fresh, modern take on a layered, textured bob," says Blandshaw. "I wanted to create a modern, asymmetrical, textured bob with natural movement and shine." Here is how you can recreate the look with Aveda products:

>>“I started with Aveda Brilliant Shampoo and Aveda Brilliant Conditioner to soften Taraji’s textured hair,” said Blandshaw. “I love the Aveda Brilliant line because it provides a smooth shine to textured hair and reduces blow dry time.”

>>Prep hair with Aveda Brilliant Damage Control to protect from heat styling.
>>Blow dry hair straight using a paddle brush.

>>After blow drying, add a dime-sized amount of Aveda Brilliant Universal Styling Creme to add additional shine without weighing hair down.

>> Flat-iron hair to create the foundation for a smooth, sleek red carpet look.

>>Using 1.5” and 2” barrel curling irons, curl hair throughout to give bend and movement, accenting the layers in the cut.

>> Slightly curl the front to create a soft, side-swept bang for added height and fullness.

>>Comb hair through with a wide-tooth comb.

>>Spray with Aveda Air Control Hair Spray for a light finish. “Aveda Air Control Hair Spray is a perfect complement to this look because its lightweight formula provides lasting hold and shine without weighing hair down,” says Blandshaw.

What are your thoughts belles? Do you use Aveda products?

Find Your Edge With Ruffles? Kerry W. & Halle B. Did!

I know what you’re thinking…how can ruffles be edgy? But the truth is they can be just that! Ruffles are one of the hottest trends to hit the fashion scene but be VERY careful not to “over ruffle” your look! Instead if you want to rock ruffles pick on item (with the ruffles) and pair it with classic tailored pieces…this way your look is “in style” but still classic and undeniably hot! So remember (1) not every trend is a must follow and (2) you must make trends your own…if you like this but not that….wear this and not that…Period!

BSBelle Tip: Pair ruffles with leather, like Kerry Washington & Halle Berry (pictured above) simply irresistible! Find your edge Belles!
