1980 "Black Barbie" repro Steffie in SiS #2

What’s better than curls to get your hair attention? In
my opinion, curls top all hairstyles. Curls go straight
to number one and keep the number one spot.Do you curl
your own hair? Do you have a professional do it? It’s
all up to your capabilities and wants! Curls get me in the
mood to dance and dress up. It doesn’t have to be a
special occasion for me to get my hair done. I want my
hair done all day everyday like people want money!

Well, enough about that.Did you think about the
many ways you can curl your hair with a curling
iron? They got something for everyone.
Are you the type that likes big waves, slight
waves, big curls, or tight curls? Curling
irons can achieve all of this.

For big waves:

Use a curling iron that is 2 inches in diameter. This
will give you large loose waves in longer hair. This
will smooth short hair though. Wrap big sections
around iron to smooth. Wrap small sections of hair
to create waves.

For Slight waves:

A curling iron that is 1 and a half inches in diameter
will create beautiful soft waves. And here’s a tip:
Curl small sections of hair with the curling iron,
then clip your hair to your heaad. When cool,
release pins and glide your fingers through the hair.

For big curls,

The size used to create large curls is about 3 quarters
to one inch in diameter. Here’s another tip: Spritz
small sections with mousse, then wrap them around iron
and hold for five seconds. Release curling iron,
then let it cool. Use your fingers to separate curls.

For tight curls,

Use a 3/8ths curling iron. They give a ringlet effect. A tip
with this is to wrap small sections from ends to roots in a
spiral. Hold it for five seconds. Release curl, then let cool
..spritz with hairspray. Do not touch!

In summary of the distinctive ways to curl hair, here is one of
my quotes:

“A woman’s hair is like her jewelry-prized and made for a pictorial”.

My opinion on this:

I vote for the tight curls. I want definition in my curls. I want
something that is obvious across the room, those kind of curls.
I desire an assortment of curly hairstyles. I won’t limit myself
to just one hairstyle. I deserve to be pampered so I will cosset.
If you know learn anything about me, know that I’m adamant about
getting my hair done.

What is the wet set and what are its benefits?

What is a wet set? A wet set is another method of styling the

hair while wet. First, there is fingerwaves. Then, there are wet sets.

Wet setting is wrapping the hair around curlers, or rollers, or

even creating pin curls. 

 

Once the hair is set, it will either air dry or dried under a hood

dryer. When the hair is dry all over, you can style it with

your fingers, combs, or brushes.

 

  • Since the hair goes from wet to all the way dry in the same position,

wet sets are usually long lasting. The wet set was the most popular

in the 1950s and 60s before hand-held electric hair appliances such

as blow dryers and curling irons were available.

 

  • Wet sets are typically less damaging to the hair than electric applicances,

because high heat is not going directly onto the hair.

 

Here’s a side tip: Magnetic plastic rollers give the smoothest type of set. The clips

hold them in place.

 

 

 

Once you shampoo and towel dry the hair, it is ready for a

wet set. Now, you can apply styling lotion or gel to  each

section as it it rolled. This can make the hair easier to work with

and give it more holding power. The hair is mainly combed and

wound around the curlers as smoothly as possible.

 

It is important to keep the ends very smooth to get away

from fishhooks or straight areas close to the ends of the hair.

Don’t put too much hair on the roller or it will take a long time

to dry. 

 

 Is your hair too short to be wrapped around the roller? Well,

go ahead and form a pin curl and hold it against the head with the clip.

Instead of waiting for the hair to air dry, you can get under a hooded

dryer.Hooded dryers can be hard or soft. The soft ones are like a shower

cap. It should be on medium level and the set should be cooled before

the rollers are removed. One should make sure the hair is completely dry.

 

When you do a wet set, the hair should wrap around the roller

two to three times for the strongest curl. Also, when creating a wet

set, you can run fingers through it and separate

the curls a bit. You can keep the pattern. It can be lightly brushes

to create a full wavy style  or even thoroughly brushed to get a 

straighter look with volume. A little hair spray may hold the style

longer.

 

Here’s a side tip: Magnetic plastic rollers give the smoothest type of set. The clips

hold them in place.

 

I personally love the sound of wet sets since they make the hair last. I have

yet to try a wet set, but when I will. you all will know. I will make it a part

2 wet set post. It’s amazing what the hooded dryer can do. I got to go

get one. Hair is a process, isn’t it? I’d love to find something that lasts

because I’m on the go. I go to college and I don’t need to worry about

my hair being done all the time. This is why I look for long lasting

hairstyles. They are the best treasures of life. Enjoy, everyone 

everywhere!

A few ways hot rollers make curls last!

What’s one of the most annoying things about hair? Well, besides
breakage, it’s when the curls come out.I really don’t love braids
as much as I love curls. I’m a curl addict, heavily dependent
on curls for a style. Curls are mature looking and so pretty.
Curls give the hair its design and profluency. So instead of losing the curls in one day,two days, or even three days, we need something that will last. I had a hairstylist that said she could
make my curls last a week, even two weeks. She has proven herself to me.

Hot rollers give your hair instant curls
that you love. Here’s how:

• Do take inventory of your hot roller set. Observe the various sizes of the rollers and how many of each size you have.

• Realize that smaller rollers hold a small amount of
hair. They will also give a tighter curl. The larger the
roller, the looser the curls.

• The longer the hot rollers are left in the hair,
the better the curl will be.

• Test a curl after two minutes. Take out one of
the rollers and see if the curl is as desirable as you’d
like. If you want your curls to be tighter, replace the
roller nd test again in another minute.

• Before you remove the rollers, lightly spray
hairspray over them and then carefully remove the
rollers. Remove each roller, one at a time. Let it
release into a ringlet form instead of the haphaz-
ardly way. The light spray over the hair helps the
curls stay in longer. Use you fingers to comb and
blend the curls.

• Spray the last application of hairspray.

I’m just saying, life is alot better when you can lie down and
wake up to curls. Curls are perky and very attractive. They
give dull hair that undeniable spice and volume. Let’s go get
some curls. If we can curl our own hair and make it last
great! Otherwise, find a professional to get your hair to
it’s highest potential! Won’t that be fun?

Our black race is some of the most fashionable. We see
how they do in Africa. We see how they do in America. We see
how they do all over the world. Therefore, we must point this
out. Our Black people tend to dress in the most dashing way.

Trends in the Black Race

1960s-Polka Dots

Loud prints were sported abundantly just 4 decades ago. Out of them
all, the most popular was the polka dot. And who doesn’t love polka dots?
Dresses, bikinis, cool clam diggers consisted of these signature dots.
They draw attention like a money contest.

1960s:Miniskirts

The wholesome conservatism of the 1950s ran through the Swinging Sixties
as a part of a trendful look.

1960s: Go Go Boots

The long go go boots made their way into the scene to pair themselves
up with the short skirts that one could label risque. It’s as if the
long boots made up for the short skirts. The shirt skirts covered
more of the leg will the skirts moved closer to their rear.

Diana Ross and the Supremes:

Their style consist of sparkly and colorful.And what a mixture
huh? Their music was timeless and the drama behind the scenes
was so huge that it keeps their history memorable.

1970s:Platform Shoes

These clunky heels have a unisex purpose and has cause people
to have ankle accidents. But hey, it was a fashion!!

Bell-bottoms

Bell bottoms was seen all over, everywhere in the 70s decade.
Whether White polyester, classic denim or technicolor versions,
it was a popular look and oh so faddish!Here, Earth, Wind, and
Fire are rocking the technicolor version of bell bottoms.

Leisure Suits

These are 3 piece polyester suits often topped off with wild
printed shirts with mammoth collars. I can’t see how they’d
ever go out of style, but to the ladies and gentlemen
of the world, they did.

Pam Grier

She would wear things that can be described as hippie-chic,
and casual. She was a beauty and sex icon.

Richard Roundtree

His signature? The sideburns that accent his face, his
leather blazer and slick turtlenecks to take care of his
top half.

Door Knocker Earrings

And has anyone heard of door knocker earrings? And
what a title for a pair of earrings? I’m going to
be hearing the sound of knocking all day today.

Anyways, these earrings are a beauty symbol.
Yellow gold was the best symbol of extravagance
in the 80s. Salt and Pepper sported them as well as
Nefertiti emblems, door knocker earrings, big
gold chains, etc.

I myself can see why these trends were trends.
The clothes just sit there so aglow (bright)!
I’d be glad to bring these trends back one day.
I wouldn’twant to wait for someone else to bring them
back. I’d want to be first. Anyways, these images
leave a long lasting impression and I can’t
see why they would ever leave. After all,
popular trends are like sunshine, they brighten
up the day. Good day people!

Makeup tips for multiple occasions at your convenience!

Make-up, how many ways can I create designs up on my face? Does
anyone really know? I love makeup but there are times when I
am just all natural.

Makeup as we know can give us a fresh and new look, something
that’s a la mode. So that’s why we love it. It’s beauty
centred or rather, the beauty dome.

I personally don’t put on all types of makeup. I put the eyeliner
and then the red lipstick. I make sure the lipstick is the
right gradient of red. It must not look clownish or I’ll ditch
it. When I shop for lipstick, I tend to look for a shade of
red like dark cherry red. That suits me. That suits black
women in general I think.

Forget the blues, and oranges. I”m not going to get an
award for clowning.

Anyways, here are some make up tips, you the reader might
find interesting! Here I am catering to your needs!

Quick Makeup Fix

1. Use a one medium bright base color.

2. Apply a base shade completely on the mobile lid.

3. Then add more in the crease and blend it upward,
halfway to the eyebrows.

4. If you choose, you can add a thin line under the
bottom lashes.

Polished Look:

1. Use a two color coordinated eyeshadows in light
and dark shades.

2. Put the dark eyeshadow on the outer corner of
the eye in a horizontal V shape.

3. Apply more eyeshadow in the crease.

4. Use the light eyeshadow to highlight the inner
corner of the eye, specifically under the eyebrows
and right above the iris.

Sophisicated Lady:

1. You can use up to four colors of eyeshadow.

2. Put the base color on the eyelid, in the upper
area. Don’t bring it close to the nose or all
the way up the eyebrows.

A Black woman sung this diet coke commercial and she sung it on point!


I had to do a commercial for class. Mine,
was about taebo and how I lost 32 pounds, 5 inches off
my stomach just doing taebo.I didn’t use music in
my commercial I did for audacity’s program.

Yet, I charismaallover, am very much an old school music lover.
Give me songs by Tevin Campbell, Tony Toni Tone and even
C&C Music Factory’s song Gonna Make you Sweat. But have you
ever thought about the music that goes along with the
commercials that have been produced?

I am a big fan of coke products. I even remember watching
the Diet Coke Commercial. This commercial is a great
commercial because of the energy it exubes through
song. Some of the lyrics are ” Just for the feel of it,
diet coke”, just for the thrill of it, or just for
the chill of it”! It’s something like that.

The black woman sings this song about diet coke and
the way she does it is both groovy and astounding.
I sing with her and take it in like a sound box.
I would have love to done that part. She has a
well defined voice with such a dapper nature.

I love the commercial because of how it flows.
It’s very active. I often think of myself being
in another world when I listen to this song.
It’s as if I’m in a euphoria.
