'Seattle Fashion Blogger' Chanel Robinson is all over the wavy 'lob' trend that all of our faves have been rocking this season and she's executing it to perfection.
A personal favorite hair look, the wave-textured long bob works for pretty much every hair texture/color as long as its hitting somewhere around the shoulders. 
Naturalistas, relaxed honeys, curly cuties and all in between can achieve this look with little to no effort.
The easiest way I’ve found to create this texture (trust, there are a million ways) is to simply part my hair down the middle from forehead to nape and   twist each side to the back (sort of like a cornrow).
On my natural stretched hair, the only product I have found to work for me in this style goal is raw organic coconut oil and curl defining cream. View high resolution

What my wardrobe inspiration is most of the time
Anywho.
This hair is what life is all about. Fun and perfectly carefree. Not exactly straight-out-of-the-bottle, but easily imitable (new word?).
I have high hopes of obtaining some of the awe-inspiring Bleach London’s color line in order to recreate this look for a client in the future.  
We shall see. View high resolution

'…Red Comes From the Heart'

Annelise for LADYGUNN Magazine.

Hair by Andrita Renee

Make Up by Emiko Ayabe

Wardrobe by Namika Benjamin

So my work got a feature on LADYGUNN which is pretty much a milestone for me, seeing as its a publication that I’ve always admired.  I had a blast working with the team. Like, legit. Namika, Lee and Emiko were all ego-free, creative, down to earth girls.

I swear female photographers are the bestest.

And the model, Anne-Lise at One Management, was super dope. She was french and redheaded and absolutely perfect.  She totally rolled up on set with a sketchbook full of amazing drawings/portraits she’d done.

We worked pretty swiftly this day and I was able to really play around with texture for Anne-Lise’s looks.  My smallest marcel and lots of prepping product was pretty much all i needed to hold her curls while maintaining movement. And mother nature was helping me out as well with the weather.

Few things in life are as chic on a Black woman as a perfect twist out.  

If you are like me, then perhaps you’ve tried about a billion different products and patterns on your quest to figure out what works best for you.  As much as I LOVE being a fulltime freelance hair stylist in NYC, when Im not working, the last thing I want to do is my own crown. I am quite low maintenance when it comes to my hair so I usually wear extensions in a coarser texture.  

But when I want to let my scalp breathe, I most certainly rock some sort of twist out.  What I’ve found is that my hair responds to very few products which is perfect for my lazy hands:

Water

Coconut Oil

Moroccan Oil Curl Defining Cream

Perm Rods
