Men frown on wig-wearing women. But Nancie Mwai has changed that narrative by rocking wigs in a stylish and classy manner.

The style blogger and YouTuber Nancie Mwai is one lady who doesn’t play when it comes to fashion. She goes all in and she sure does deliver.

Having blogged for years now, Nancie has mastered the art of matching her outfits with the right makeup and if she’s not feeling her hair, them wigs come in handy.

nancie mwai 22But one thing we admire the most is how good she is with wigs; she knows which wigs work with her face structure and it’s only fair to say she’s always winning on that sector.

A while back, women were degraded for wearing wigs/ weaves with many stating that they are insecure about their natural hair. But we are in a different era, where a huge chunk of women in this country own wigs.

Fashion Police: Kenyans speak on strict dress code experiences in Tanzania

Back in 2018, Tanzanian songstress Vanessa Mdee let it be known that she was barred from entering a government office all because of a skimpy skirt.

She wrote of the humiliating experience on Twitter

” Only in Tanzania is my skirt which is at my knees too short to enter a public corporate building. This is incredible”

 Vanessa further revealed she was asked to tie a kanga to access the building to which she added
             “Wameniuliza eti ‘una khanga’ FOH”
Several Kenyans have taken to Twitter to also narrate their most humiliating experience in Tanzania that has left a bitter taste in their mouths.
The discussion was prompted by a confession by the Twitter user below, who warned Kenyans girls to dress accordingly

Many say though it is not all parts of Tanzania where a woman will be ridiculed for her choice of outfit, skimpy outfits are frowned upon.
@writinflo..
Yeah…I mean when we went we were shouted at an some people even refused to sell to us. Just above the knee dresses and skirts 😄@SonnieRox..
Was kicked out of a govt office for a dress that was just above my knees

@sharlirungu..
🤣 This is true, if I wasn’t with my parents I would’ve been jailed hata…

@t_cieloh..
The only bad thing about Tz is this

You can actually be arrested 😭- As a short clothes wearer I felt it 😭

@valswayz..
I was in Dar for a wedding when i was asked to go back change from from my short dress, or either cover myself with a leso before they could let me into the church. I chose to go and change.

@Wa_Mutemi..
Mine wasn’t that short even, And they were like, “tazameni huyu dad’s kavaa nini” so loud, they all turned to stare at me😥

@JanepherGero..
So…men even have the guts to follow and touch you while threatening to strip you naked!!

Women will shout at the back like “motto wa kike jiheshimu”
“Hamna mwanaume atakayekuoa!”
“Unadanga/unajiuza”

It’s so scary being free in Tanzania.

@Karwaay..
Can’t relate. Lol. Seriously though, inategemea na kule uko. Sokoni I cover up. The mall, I don’t. I get stares, but that’s all. Whites get away with anything though.

@flobomett..
The comments my friend and I got in kariokor because of our “short skirts” was irritating damn but in masaki where we were staying no one seemed to mind, also thank you for your inspiration, I did a solo trip to Zanzibar and it was all sorts of amazeballs!

@Kingchrisotieno..
The Brothers in Dar es Salaam also thought my Beach shorts were too short for comfort 😂😂😂.
Someone straight up asked why I was walking around in boxers. 😣😣

@NkathaDee..
Lol. Ikr! Had an experience where a whole street just stood and stared at me in amusement of my short dress.

@Mwotweets..
People were staring at me for wearing a sleeveless top. Do wazungu have the same experience?

@skmathenge..
So that’s why I got weird looks from immigration and traffic cops with my shorts on a road trip to Dar via Namanga & Moshi – I was dressed for comfort & didn’t think much about it. Wife also got a few stares in Dar with her sleevless dress (and it was so hot & humid)!

@JusG_G..
I was there in 2012 and got really rude stares for wearing shorts in the market until one guy suggested I get a Kitenge (zambia/cloth to cover around my waist). I will never forget how angry those men looked

7 simple yet effective tips for maintaining braids

 

I can never quite keep my braids on for longer than two weeks, but for those of you who can more power to you sis.

Here’s how you can make them last longer should you choose to:

Keep your scalp moist: Do this at least two to three times a week, using a leave-in conditioner.

Wash braids bi-weekly (This is usually the minimum recommendation)

Reduce up-do’s

Avoid pulling and high manipulation

Redo your edges after 4 to 6 weeks

Don’t wear braids for too long

Protect your hair at night: Wear an extra large silk or satin hair bonnet. While you don’t have to worry about dryness issues if you’re wearing extensions, you can avoid frizz and shortening the life of your braids if you protect them at night.

‘I force my wife to go to the kinyozi not the salon’ mean husband brags

 

Would you let a man dictate your clothes, shade of lipstick, type of perfume and height of your heels? Probably not. But what about the length of your hair?

All the jokes and memes made on National Boyfriends Day

A rather opinionated man made many upset after complaining that he doesn’t like being asked for money by his wife for her beauty needs.

”Every end month I pay rent, school fees and shopping for the house. Any other thing outside that bracket, is her own responsibility. Her money is hers to take care of herself. To add on to that, I don’t walk around with my wife for outings!

He admits that he goes to extremes to ensure that no money goes towards the salon.

 

I don’t walk around a supermarket with her, what for? I leave 300 bob everyday for her to buy food, if she wants to do other things that’s her bill to pay, not my money.

He is happy with her low maintenance look and has made a pact to continue with this lifestyle.

I go with my wife to the barber shop to shave her hair, because I don’t see why I should give her money for the salon. She shaves her hair and keeps it short, her nails are also short and keep them natural because I won’t pay her salon bill.

I don’t expect a man below my standards to approach me

Do you think men freely spend on their fellow men but not as much to their woman?

This question was posed to Classic 105 listeners by Maina Kageni who wondered out loud why men are quick to drop big bucks on men but not their wives.

Why do you guys do it?

He added

ladies if you went out with your men tonight, you will cry tears, coz first Kenyan men don’t buy a normal round, they buy mzingas claiming ati it has special offer, girls you should see how your men drink at night, and don’t bring money home

Girls, on a level of one to ten, how angry are  you reading this?

‘My dress is from Kenya’ Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy shows off custom made outfit

 

Beyonce has shared with fans worldwide her inspiration behind a Kenyan custom made yellow dress and neck piece that her daughter Blue Ivy wore earlier this year.

Blue Ivy in the video can be heard saying

‘And this piece is from Kenya. Ok I will tell you one thing so this is a circle and this Africa is the circle of life.’ 

Beyonce adds that

‘so many talented people worked on on this project. I was very honored to have the women of Northern Kenya work on a very special costume for Blue’

This dress and headpiece was hand beaded with love by beadingArtist from Kenya.

She wore this headpiece and dress to the Waco’s 2019 Gala (annual wearable art gala) at the WACO Theater in Los Angeles for a night full of art, music, and charitable donations.

The glamorous gala was organized by Bey’s mom, Tina Knowles, and her husband, Richard Lawson, to benefit their nonprofit gallery and performance venue.

The theme of the evening was “A Journey to the Pride Lands,” inspired by the then anticipated live-action remake of The Lion King in which Beyoncé voiced Nala.

While Bey modeled a glimmering golden jumpsuit with a cape and voluminous lion motif, JAY-Z sported a dark suit.

Blue Ivy even got in on the Pride Rock fun, rocking a billowing bright yellow dress and a spiked crown á la Bey’s onstage ensemble at the 2017 Grammys.

Her trademark hairstyle has always been braids, and mostly the long ones.

Brandy just turned 40, and in an interview with essence magazine told

I didn’t love myself when I was in my so called prime. I used to think my life was a gift and a curse…I didn’t find my way until recently at 39 and now 40

She starred in the iconic black sitcom ‘Moesha’, and also later joined Queen Latifah in the TV series ‘Star’.

For six seasons starting in the late nineties, young Black girls watched in awe as Moesha lived a carefree life dancing, reflecting on her crazy high school days and nights  in her journal while keeping her family in check.

I sucked in the beginning…Everybody thought I sucked.

But that is all behind her. We take a look back at her iconic looks through the years:

Mr seed speaks out on why his fashion is evolving

Mr Seed has asked his fans not to judge him by his fashion and hairstyles. When he started doing music, Seed had dreadlocks, and now he has short-dyed hair.

He shocked his fans when he decided to chop them off. He said his decision to cut the locks was because of an anticipated visit to his gorgeous fiancée Nimo Gachuiri’s parents home.

He wanted to look presentable and at the same time keep it real, as he casually dressed for the occasion.

“People judge gospel artistes with our outside appearance, but God concentrates on the heart and your deeds,” he told Word Is on Wednesday.

mrseedpinkhair

He went on to say even if he dresses in suits and looks good from the outside, if his heart is not pure, he will not please God.

“I would request my fans not to judge me by the ways I look. If my style does not make you happy, at least like my music and what I post because it could be of importance,” he said.

Despite maintaining his hair dye, Seed seems to like his tattoos, which are on his left hand.

“One of my tattoos has my late dad’s name and another one is for my son’s name. I had an idea of naming my son Gold even before I got him and so I tattooed his name on my hand,” he said.

Mr Seed, who was previously signed under EMB records, is making Boss moves after launching his studios, an operation that has been on course for roughly five months now.

mr seed1

It’s a project he believes will be able ‘to help artistes reach their musical dreams at affordable rates’.

Through an Insta video, Seed said,

“God amekuwa faithful sana, ju right now I want to take this chance to welcome every artiste kwenye Starborn Empire Studio. We are now open, come work with the best.”

Speaking about working with Mr Seed, Damorn said Seed has been supportive even in his previous songs.

Damorn has released a new song titled ‘Dekadeka’, which he says was inspired by his real-life experience. “The video is all from my wedding,” he said.

It is necessary to wear high heels to work – Japan minister

The Japanese Minister of Labour has caused sharp reaction after saying high heels are ‘necessary’ to wear to work.

Health Minister Takumi Nemoto responded on Wednesday to an online campaign gaining attention in Japan under the hashtag #KuToo, a play on the Japanese words for shoe, “kutsu”, and pain,”kutsuu”.

The petition, which has collected 21,000 online signatures and is still growing, was submitted on Monday to the health ministry by Yumi Ishikawa, a 32-year-old funeral parlour worker.

WomenAtTheTop

She said on Twitter in January she was required to wear 5-7 centimetre heels at work, causing her feet to hurt.

“It is socially accepted as something that falls with the realm of being occupationally necessary and appropriate,” Nemoto told a legislative committee on Wednesday.

The petition was submitted to the labour ministry on Tuesday.

The movement was launched by actress and freelance writer Yumi Ishikawa and quickly won support from thousands of people online.

Campaigners say wearing high heels is seen as near-obligatory when job hunting or working at many Japanese companies.

Some campaigners describe high heels as akin to modern foot-binding while others have urged a broader loosening of dress codes in the Japanese workplace, where business suits for men are ubiquitous.
