KEN’S QUARTER-LIFE KRISIS: SHOULDA, COULDA, WOULDA

cb-shoulda.jpg

Writing this blog has given me a great deal of experience with “shoulds”. I’ve become an expert in fact. It’s quite easy to decide what I SHOULD do and even to tell you what you SHOULD do.

I should grow a pair and send my writing samples out to actual publications.

I should learn to do my own hair. I mean, really do my hair. My boyfriend asked me if I planned on living with my sister forever to avoid learning to put a curling iron to my own head. I actually considered it. Read More…

3 REASONS YOUR STYLE’S NOT HOT

CB-HOTSTYLE.jpg

Get out of your style slump and get in the game. Here are three reasons why your look is just not turning heads, anymore.

YOU REFUSE TO USE NEW PRODUCTS: It takes a village to create a gorgeous style. A product village. If you refuse to use the proper products to achieve different results, you’re holding your hair back. Natural hair has the ability to be incredibly versatile, but you have to be willing to consider some products that aren’t curly-specific if you want that magazine cover style. Think about what kind of products that will get you where you need to go. Intense hold needed? Get a great hairspray. Ooooh, taboo, we know. Edges running a muck? You need a smoothing stick. Blowout falling flat? You need a heat protectant serum. Don’t be afraid to break the cycle of JUST using moisturizers and curl cremes. Of course we love ‘em, but your style diary is going to be pretty boring if you never try any expert lines like your Pantene Expert Collection Advanced Keratin Repair. Read More…

Ken’s Quarter-Life Krisis: A New ‘Do!

cb-kenn.jpg

Operation fix my weave is now complete! This was the first step towards the new and improved Kendolyn 2.0, and she’s pretty cute, if I do say so myself. Side note: you can’t even tell Paris took a bite out of my hair!

Last week, the curlBOX crew took a field trip to Erica Hudson’s salon and she did her THING! I simply sent Miss. Hudson a few inspiration photos and she ran with it. I am absolutely overjoyed with the outcome and (as I hoped) finally look a little more how I believe Kendolyn is supposed to look.

My hair has been a lifelong battle. Read More…
