I Whip My Hair Back and Forth

"Hop up out the bed, turn my swag no attention
to them haters cause we whip em off...
I whip my hair back and forth I whip my hair back and forth."
-Willow Smith, "I Whip My Hair Back and Forth"

Okay, so Willow Smith's club banger, "I Whip My Hair Back and Forth" is sooo my new anthem! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE hair and when I get 'THE LUSCIOUS' (that's whay I call my weave...ain't no shame in my game) I don't have any problems whippin it back and forth on them haters, even if it's long or short!

So today's question for you diva fashionista's is what hair styles are appropriate for certain occasions?

Most people would say down for casual, everyday look and semi-up or all the way up for a more formal event. Well guess what? Times are changing and DOWN is the new formal and UP is the new everyday look.

The Semi-Up do: Half Up/Half Down:

This 'do can be done any time of day. To make this look work, accessories are a must.
For casual semi-up dos add feathers, flowers or some other fun accessory. For a more formal, evening look add jewels or fancy hair pins.

Waves and Curls:

Since DOWN is the new UP when it comes to formal do's waves and curls are all the rave!
Waves and curls give women a more glamorous, sexy and feminine look.
The great thing about waves and curls is they can be worn day or night.


Ponytails, one of the most basic do's that has stood the test of time. No matter if you have short, medium or long hair you can rock the ponytail style. if you are going to wear a ponytail, don't forget to add a little FLAIR by covering the hair elastic with some of your own hair, a ribbon or some other accessory.

The beauty of the ponytail is that it's so versatile. You can make it high, low, to the side, sticking up, it's whatever you want to do! You can braid it, twist it, leave it messy, slick it back...WHATEVER! The choice is yours, make it happen!

The key to rockin out these styles is to make it your own and strut the sidewalk, cat walk, or wherever you walk with all the confidence in the world. WHIP YOUR HAIR, WHIP YOUR HAIR!
