Hair Trend: Dark Roots

This is not a new trend but it caught my eye when I saw Rihanna on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

This was the first time I ever contemplated trying the look. Summer is the best time to experiment with your hair and I am trying to push myself out of my comfort zone with my hairstyle choices. What I like most about this trend is that since the roots are dark, it tones down the bolder color on the rest of the hair; makes it more wearable.
The look has been seen on Ciara, Nicki Minaj and Keke Palmer to name a few.



Rihanna's look is by far my favorite. I like her color combination better; it goes from dark brown at the roots to a auburn honey blonde color. Nicki's hair looks good on her but not everyone can pull that color off at least i know i certainly can't and will not attempt to.

What do you think of this trend? Would you wear it?

Hair Crush : Ivy Powell's Flip over Sew-in with a closure

I haven't had a weave in about 2 years. I have only worn u-part wigs or full wigs (with a closure). For the first time in 2 years, I have the urge to do a sew-in after seeing Youtube's  Poisonflowerivy's Flip over method. First of all how gorgeous is the texture of the hair she used?! I love the volume created on top as a result of her using the closure. I want & need a texture like this for my next install and I am seriously considering doing a weave because of this method. I want to try Malaysian Hair;I have only worn Brazilian, Indian and Filipino Hair.


Will any of you be trying this method?
