Sanneta Myrie Has Beauty on Loc

While everyone is busy making and laughing at meme’s of Steve Harvey’s gaffe at the Miss Universe event, I became intrigued by Miss World pageant contestant Miss Jamaica, Sanneta Myrie.

Sanneta Myrie is stunning.

While she didn’t win (that honor was given to Miss South Africa), I was struck that this young doctor (yes, doctor!) is a dancer who is spiritually and culturally rooted. And oh, the locs! It’s the first time that the natural style has been presented on a stage of this magnitude. Hopefully we’ll see more sisters representing their natural hair in pageants to come. Black hair is a thing of beauty.

Peep this video. Sanneta’s radiance shines through and through.

Lavish Beauty: My Favorite InstaGlamazons

Sometimes you just need a quick fix. I’m inspired by these Instagram clips of girls getting glam. And while I know many are more time consuming than their 15 second clips imply, I’m still down for trying a new technique.

Lavish Beauty: JHud’s Buzz Cut

Who needs hair, when u serving face! – Jennifer Hudson

jhud081815_1

Jennifer Hudson showed off her fresh chop. It’s a bold move, considering that hair is great at hiding flaws, contouring and framing a face, and changing your demeanor. It’s such a risk, chopping it all off. I’ve done it, years ago, and the upkeep is worse than having a head full of hair. One missed appointment, and you are fully on blast, with no ponytail as a saving grace. But Ms. Hudson looks amazing!

Youtube Vlogger Sunshine Abuwi has a great video on on getting and maintaining a fabulous buzz cut:

Lavish Beauty: Brown, Beautifully

cherryCollective

I just love, love, LOVE when brown skin is captured in its most delectable, radiant, shimmering light. I saw the photo grid of black beauties on Instagram and ran over to their blog, where I could see the colorful images in all their glory. New York City-based photographer Chandler Easley of The Cherry Collaborative does this, quite masterfully. I would love to see these blown up in a gallery.

Lavish Beauty: A Pony Is All You Need

beyoncepony

Sometimes, it’s just like that. As temperatures soar, hair sticking to your neck is just not an option, and complicated updos are just that—complicated. Some water, aloe vera gel and coconut oil are just what your edges need for this simple style that will take you from the pool to brunch and back again.

Lavish Beauty: Nu Organiks by Les Nubians

LesNubians_NuOrganiks

Les Nubians are truly beautiful inside and out. I was reading a New York Magazine article, and a shopkeeper had mentioned their brand, NÜ ORGANIKS,  in passing. I had no idea that the Brooklyn-based french musical duo had been creating these buttery creams all this time! No wonder they stay glowing. There’s a tight selection of all natural, shea butter based body and hair salves that come in simple glass jars. Simple ingredients and simple packaging make for a powerful addition to your beauty bag.
