A night in the 60’s with the Supremes and Diana Ross
So I did some makeup for my friend Leah who is a performer with New England’s Foxx Dream Girls and she needed a replica of the 60’s makeup Diana Ross wore in the supremes below. She didn’t want eye lashes so i couldn’t quite finish the look but i made the wing eyed look with black eyeliner and adding gold and white eyeshadow to the middle of here eyelids and on the thin layer of her under eye. Below are images of the nights look.

Durban Twists and Dramatic Eye makeup
Durban Twists are normally crocheted into ones head but I decided to braid it individually and leave it half way to create the illusion of crocheted hair.
The Dramatic Eye look Winged black liner in the crease of eyelid add black and brown shadow and blend into the crease. Add foundation or primer on Eyelids add white texture shadow onto the eyelids blend until smooth. Create winged eye with black eyeliner and add the white shadow or liner to shape the winged liner making it thiner and narrower. Add white eyeliner to under eye. I didn’t put the black eyeliner on the under eye as shown in this picture i felt it would drown my eyes. Shape eyebrows and add white shadow under the brow highlighting.

MISS BLACK AMERICA COED PAGEANT 2014
I just finished competing at the Miss Black America Coed Pageant last weekend November 28 – the 29th and it was a wonderful experience that i had. I have not participated in any pageant for the past 2 years focusing on Academics. I made Top 5 and finished out with 4th runner up though I didn’t win the crown I am very proud of myself for doing what I did and also taking a risk in the glamorous pageant world with competing with my natural curly fro.
I added my own small twist to the bun and added more braiding hair making it fuller for the up do which I have posted the link below.

Promoting with my Natural Hair for the Baltimore Charm LFL Football Team
This is the first time I have actually been brave enough to walk out with my hair like this besides being in school or around friends that know me. But it is the greatest feeling. Despite the fact that i continue to purchase and wear weaves since i am doing tons of modeling events that require for the long length of hair. I have not been as comfortable to walk out like this; so rocking my natural hair out is a huge accomplishment for me.

June 5th, 2014 BOOOOOM!!! THERE IT GROWS!!!
The Hair Journey to Growth! I cut the rest of the permed pieces off in the summer of 2013.
And the bottom photos represent the growth I have had since then present day March 2014.
I came home one day from school in Boston. And felt it was time for change and i went to the salon and snipped my hair down Hally Berry Style. Not bad for a short style on a long face, I let me hair grow out I couldn’t really take care of my actual short hair while in school it would be a large amount of work for me.
Summer of 2012
This was my hair permed and colored before I ever even cut it.
A photo shoot I did with permed hair and extensions.
Below my hair inspirations!!
Diana Ross and Solange I want my hair to get very BIG!! So I can do more versatile styles. In the meantime I am putting my hair in protective styles!!
