1. How To Look More Feminine & Spice Up Your Look ~ Do Something Different To Your Hair

If you are a reader of my blog then you know I love to change my hair like I change my shoes. I think choosing the right type of hairstyle can really teach you how to be more feminine. And you don’t have to even spend money on the salon.

Gone are the days that you actually have to dye your own hair.  You can just buy hair and attach it to your head to diversify your look. If you cannot tell, I am a huge fan of fake hair.

The reason being is because you can try new colors, styles, lengths, textures, and you do not have to do anything different to your own hair and damage it by over-styling.  Wearing wigs and weaves are an amazing protective style and it gives you the freedom to change your hair as much as you want. And still, look feminine.

2. How To Look More Feminine Make It Ombre 

I love ombre hair.  If you do not know what ombre hair is, it is basically hair that starts one color and then fades into a lighter color.  Let me tell you how ombre hair can work for you as a black woman.

If you get ombre hair with dark roots, then the hair is much more likely to look realistic on you and blend in with your natural hair. And because the hair gets lighter toward the end or changes colors, it can change up your look dramatically.


You can do an ombre style with braids, like my video above, or even use ombre clip-ins.  If you are interested in dying your own hair ombre then check out this amazing video from Chic is Natural and she will give you some amazing tips.
