How to Style Your Short Natural Hair

Hi ya Gorgeous!

I’ve got a great post full of tips on how to style your short natural hair. Get ready for a gorgeous summer!

Beauty is a thing that everyone would want to get associated to. A number of features are responsible for the beauty of an individual and hair is one of them, as a matter of fact, the hair of an individual greatly determines the looks of an individual. Long and short hairstyles may often look good with one person but give a contrary result with another.

Before choosing a particular hairstyle, you should first look at some of your physical characteristics. The height of an individual may greatly influence the outcome of a hairstyle. There are certain hairstyles that do it for the tall individuals while some are just perfect with short people.

In most cases often works out perfectly for the not so tall individuals. The short hair thing is fast becoming famous and trendy in the current world. It was initially thought that short hair was not exciting. It was typically meant for the males. You could hardly find a woman sporting short hair. This is however not the case in the current world. You will most obviously meet a lady with short hair every so often while taking a walk on the streets.


For short hair to actually give you successful results, you should be careful while choosing the hairstyle you plan to do. The hairstyle you do should be influenced by the color of the individual, the body size, the common dressing mode of the individual and many other factors.



One of the short hairstyles for natural hair is the TWA Pixie haircut. This hairstyle is relatively easy to pull. One problem about it is that it hardly lasts more than a week. Working out the TWA Pixie is easy. All you need is a Denman brush, leave-in conditioner a water bottle and gel. This style is great as any hair texture will be able to yield curls. This style is often preferred by those who are natural and love undefined curls. This hairstyle could also serve as wearable curly hairstyles for men. It is able to give a male that gentlemanly well groomed look.

Another short hairstyle is the Curly TWA Afro. Used with rods, this hairstyle just brings romance to the short hair. It is the perfect hairstyle for a night-out and it will just kill it for your date. Its shortcoming however is that it hardly lasts more than a week. This is because it gets looser and bigger by the day. It is the perfect style for a TWA for those who love curls. It makes your hair look great both alone and with a tiara or a headband. It is also suitable for all hair textures.




Celebrities are also increasingly adopting the short hair thing. For celebrity short hairstyles; they look gorgeous, just extremely gorgeous in them. Take Lupita Nyongo for example, an Oscar award winner famous for her brilliant role in the movie ’12 Years A Slave’ looks fantabulous in short hair. This is enough to show one that short hair is not a thing for the males.


No matter what short hairstyle you choose, with your confidence and poise you are sure to turn heads when you enter the room!


Holla Gorgeous!

Happy Monday. I love Mondays!

Now it’s over a week since I have attended the Generation Beauty event in Los Angeles at the LA Live event deck. 

Loved it! In fact, I will have my review videos and product review posts coming out this week. Why so long?

Because when I got home last Monday, I instantly launched into LEGO Robotic Camp Mom mode for my Mancub’s week of engineering and building robots.

I created a “how to” video for the Generation Beauty app. Why? Because it’s news I wish I had before I got to the event. Yes, I had a plan. But I didn’t have enough of a plan or a Plan B, Plan C and a Plan C 1/2.

Now about that video…

Hi ya!

So summer is upon us and that means long days of fun and travel. I have many devices, as do those in my family. When we all travel together with our multiple devices and checking in and doing status updates or gaming on long stretches of highway, eventually the batteries run low.


What is the answer to multiple devices and a need to power up quickly and conveniently? RADPAD!

* Charges up to 6 USB-based devices simultaneously
* Automatic selection of the fastest possible charge speed
* Integrated microchip for protection against overcharging


So when you get to a place where there is only one outlet and multiple devices, simply plug in your RADPAD and then use it to quickly power up and replace battery life on your numerous ipads, iphones and android devices by plugging them into the RADPAD.

Hey Gorgeous!

I’ve got to tell you about the value and benefit of microdermabrasion plus a great place to get your treatments such as Sk:N!

Read more….

Microdermabrasion: The Benefits And How It Works

There are numerous benefits to microdermabrasion and this article looks at what it is and how it works – read on and get an idea if it could help you.

Microdermabrasion Benefits

When it comes to improving the look and feel of skin, microdermabrasion delivers stunning result, but does depend on the aesthetician’s skill. To get the best results, book your appointment with someone who comes highly recommended.

It takes time to get great results, so plan on undergoing treatments in series. The number required will depend upon the condition of your skin and your skin type. Typically, treatment plans include six treatments scheduled two weeks apart.



The machine used for microdermabrasion can be fine-tuned, which means that having sensitive skin isn’t a problem. When it comes to this procedure, more is not necessarily better. Doctors with large practices might have bigger machines, but they are absolutely necessary.

Now let’s look at what is microdermabrasion

Typical pricing for a single treatment runs from $100 to $150. Some spas offer a special: With five treatments, you can often get the sixth one for free. There is no recovery period required after your treatment which typically take a half of an hour from start to finish. It’s easy to pop out from work, get your “lunchtime peel,” and then immediately resume your day.

On a cautionary note, it’s important to remember that the skin’s outer layer has one main job: To protect your underlying skin. That’s why you’ll want to stay out of the sun for a while. Vigorous exercise shortly after the procedure is not recommended. Even when the weather is cloudy, be prepared to put on a gentle sunscreen for further protection.

Home microdermabrasion kits work more like a skin scrub, so you shouldn’t expect to get the same results as you would from a professional. With these kits, it’s easy to irritate your skin if you overdo it.

How Microdermabrasion Is Done

The microdermabrasion machine uses a compressor to draw air in through the attached wand. A vacuum is created when the wand makes skin contact. Corundum crystals (aluminum oxide) are second in hardness only to diamonds. These crystals literally pick up dead skin cells as they are blasted across the surface of the skin. Finally, both crystals and dead skin are pulled up and away through a separate tube within the wand to be disposed of.

The aesthetician determines how deep the exfoliation should be. To control this aspect, both the crystal flow and the vacuum strength can be adjusted. Most of the time, only two passes are needed. However, an additional one may be used when scars or brown spots are treated.

The process of microdermabrasion with crystals is not painful, but it can be uncomfortable. Sensitive tissue of the nose or mouth regions might present a problem. Throughout the entire treatment, your aesthetician will monitor your pain levels. Be sure to tell her if you experience pain during the procedure.




After the treatment, your face will appear to be red. This is because trace amounts of the crystal will be left behind and change the appearance of your face tone. To prevent damage to your eyes during the process, they should be shielded.

Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is similar to the crystal method in some ways. The hand-held wand uses a vacuum. However, there are no crystals moving through the want and removing dead skin cells. Instead, the tip itself does the exfoliation while the vacuum pulls the skin cells away once they are removed. Tips come with different roughness grades and the best one for your skin type will be chosen.

Many people find that the diamond-tip tool is more comfortable than the crystal method. Both achieve similar results. In general, for people with sensitive skin, the diamond-tip tool is the tool of choice.
