The Color, The Style, The Uniqueness. Embrace Change Without Fear And Get The HAIR That Makes You Feel Comfortable (PHOTOS)

As the saying goes, change is inevitable, and ladies in most parts of the world are embracing the changes in their dressing code from clothes to hair and even make up.

There are many companies that make various types of synthetic hair. Most ladies prefer wearing artificial hair as compared to natural hair since they claim it is much easier to maintain.

Weaves, wigs and braids come in various colors and lengths.

Some ladies prefer having straight weaves that have a fringe so that they may cover their foreheads and they definitely look good. Some ladies have natural long foreheads which to some makes them appear unique but to others it is undesirable.

Whereas most ladies prefer having long synthetic hair, some find short natural hair more attractive. Short, neat well combed hair is much more affordable and easier to maintain. Black or in any other dye colour, it makes one look more natural. It can be simply combed or rolled and waxed into baby locks and accompanied with lines to perfect the look.

Dreadlocks are becoming trendy with them proving to be the simplest way to maintain long natural locked hair. They need less time to be put in place while at the same time patience is needed for them to appear neat. They can be left hanging or joined to form lines. Some people accessorize dreadlocks with Rastafarian bids as it is believed this culture emerged from their world.

Not everyone likes straight weaves.Curly and wavy weaves are becoming trendy with most ladies favoring them and especially those with ‘small heads’ and slim bodies as they believe it makes them  look noticeable and maturer. Well that could just be a belief since even curvy girls still have them well placed and look totally beautiful. They come in many colors to suit each skin type.

The hair world is going a notch higher when it comes to colors. Aggressiveness and courage are basic in this as not everyone would get to this level. But to most who try it out they definitely give a mouth watering look. Some prefer dyed natural hair while some do colored weaves. Accessorizing the color of the hair with the makeup ensures a perfect look.

The hair world is growing at a fast rate with many ideas coming up daily. All you need to do is know what suits you and get the best salonist in town ,your look will be a perfect one. It’s always good to try out new things, don’t stick to the old you even though the fact remains beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Types Of Friends You Are Likely To Make in Campus

Bye high school life hello campus life. Joining campus is a major milestone for most young people as it marks a journey towards adulthood but what most people don’t know is that joining campus comes with its own challenges.

Campus is more like a pool that attracts people from all walks of life. With all the freedom that comes with joining campus, one is free to make friends whenever and with whomever they want away from the watchful eyes f the parents. Below are some of the friends you are likely to meet in campus.

1. The Book Worm

This is the kind of friend no one wants to keep. She is considered boring due to the fact that she is always on her books. She finds even the most weird spots just so that she doesn’t interact with other people. If you are looking forward to having a vibrant campus life then this is not the type of friend to keep.

cc655aca92e78df72f70d2057c948f34

2. The Shopaholic

Shop till you drop is the mantra this kind of friend lives by. A friend like this would rather miss classes than miss a trip to the nearest mall. She always keeps tabs on which malls are offering low discounts on their products and  the irony of it all is that everyone in campus wants to be her friend. Hata mimi siezi mind.

3. The Fashionista

Fashion si ya kila mtu, for most who lack a strong sense of fashion this is the kind of friend to go to. She is always in fashionable clothing and never forgets to do her hair. She does not know what it means to have a bad hair day. Her make up is always in place and she is the envy of many.

college-and-fashion-cindy-a2

 

4. The Party Animal

What would campus life be without parties? Boring. At least every one in campus has such kind of a friend. She  is always in the know when it comes to partying matters, she never misses any party and is always ready to go for another regardless of weather she’s nursing a hangover or not.

5. The Lone Ranger

This is the kind of friend who doesn’t know anyone in campus. H/she always reject offers to go out with buddies and would rather just sleep or grab a movie. Such a friend is very boring to hang around with. If they have to go to a party/function you literally have to drag her and be sure that they will be very bored.

Boring-Office-Party

6. The Funny Guy

Who wouldn’t want a friend that makes them laugh? Campus comes with its own pressures and a good laugh is all we need sometimes. The funny guy brings energy wherever he goes and he is a favourite  to many. Due to his cheeky nature he has a tendency of getting himself out of trouble.

01_laughing_Dishing-Out-Sarcasm-Can-Make-You-and-the-People-You-Tell-it-to-Smarter_289067414_Antonio-Guillem-1024x683

7. Best Friend Forever (BFF)

This is the kind of friend you love to hate. They always have your back no matter what happens. Without BFF’s there would be no one to tell your dirty little secretes thus this kind of friend comes in handy. Such friendships mostly extend beyond campus thus should be nurtured.

1_1

8. The Gossiper

This kind of friend is more like human newspaper, they always know what is happening before any one else knows. Always sitting in groups. You would think that they are the sharpest kids on the block but duh, they may be good in gossiping but get nothing when it comes to book matters. If you want to make something meaningful out of your life stay away from such friends. Udaku itawaua

She’s Super Stunning! Glamorous Grandmother Attracts a Huge Online Following Thanks To Her Astonishingly Youthful Looks (PHOTOS)

Without a wrinkle in sight and with her keen eye for trends it is hard to believe that Zaklina would be a mother let alone a grandmother.

Zaklina doesn’t look a day over 25 but in reality she is a 47-year-old grandmother but that does not stop her strutting her stuff on social media.

The grandmother-of-two, originally from Serbia goes by the name ‘realfashionist’ on social media and her stylish snaps have thus far attracted more than 158,000 followers.

Her athletic figure and elegant style make her the envy of models decades years her junior.

hot-grandma-5

She is a passionate fashion blogger and says she picked up her fashion tips from living in various countries such as Switzerland, France and Poland.

She currently lives in one of Europe’s fashion hubs, Italy, with picturesque surroundings providing the perfect backdrop for her popular snaps.

With every picture she shares Zaklina uses the hashtag #grandmotherthatlovesfashion showing she is clearly proud of her family.
She said: ‘My main goal is to inspire women to wake up their wild side.’

hot-grandma-3

The grandma said her favourite things to do, apart from blogging, is ‘hanging out’ with her unnamed 28-year-old daughter.

According to her social media account, the star also had a son called Stefan, who passed away last year on Christmas Eve after he was run over in Belgrade, Serbia.

On every picture she writes #rememberstefan in memory of the son she calls her angel.

Going Out? Let’s Rock The Right Outfit (Photos)

We all know there’s nothing more relaxing than a proper outing during the weekday to let off some steam and just chill. It could be dinner or a night out with the girls. Never the less, we ladies for some reason always have the same issue when it comes to picking out an outfit. You are probably wondering what to wear it being a week day. Well, wonder no more. Here are a few looks that you can rock.

Now remember, you might want to keep it casual but sexy or just go for a simple classy look. You most definitely do not want to walk in to a place over dressed or even worse, under dressed. Appearance is your ticket. Look gorgeous and you just might get away with a lot tonight.

Going out to dinner? You do not want to look indecent but that doesn’t mean you can’t still look sexy. Try on the long sleeve bodycon elastic dress. This body flattering dress is not too short but shows a bit of skin covered in lace just enough to tease, so flaunt it if you have it.

For those that prefer to wear dresses that do not outline your curves, you might want to opt for the chiffon causal dress. With the right accessories, clutch and shoes, this dress will transform your look to simple and classy. Nothing too flashy but definitely sexy.

Partying with the girls and hanging out with friends is always fun. You will want to go for a look that is sexy, body flattering and yet still comfortable. If you are a jeans person, try on the faded jeans and throw on a sleeveless tank top or preferably a crop top. You can never go wrong with jeans if you know how to accessorize and have the right pair of shoes to go with it.

For those that love wearing dresses, try on the sexy bodycon sleeveless dress that will make heads turn in awe.

Going to a business dinner, try and keep it official. You do not want to send the wrong message or give mixed signals to whomever you are meeting. You might want to go for an outfit that is not revealing and yet still body flattering. Carry a purse and go for the pointy heels because they compliment the whole outfit.

Meet The Female Cop Whose Beauty Has Mesmerized Kenyans (PHOTOS)

For a long time, Police Constable Emma Brenda Wanjiru has held the title of the sexiest female cop in Kenya. Actually, some of us thought that the crown was hers for good.

Boy were, we wrong but feel free to correct me on this. Kenyans have discovered another police officer who is just as beautiful, presumably even more attractive than Brenda Wanjiru.

Not much is known about this lady except for the fact that she goes by the name Joan, and clearly, that’s already more than we could ask for.

WOW! Nyota Ndogo Disgusted By The Young Generation’s Raunchy Dressing After Being Shocked By BARELY-THERE Clubbing Outfit

Mombasa-based singer Nyota Ndogo has been silent in terms of music releases, but she remains vocal in one form or another.

This time round, the Watu Na Viatu hitmaker revealed her disgust at a disturbing style of dressing that has started to become commonplace up in the coastal town – mainly, where women are basically walking around almost naked.

Nyota Ndogo, real name Mwanaisha Abdalla, shared a very racy photo of a woman walking in what looks like a fishnet body suit with no underwear. This essentially revealed all her ‘goodies’ for anyone to see.

In the photo, you can see the woman walking majestically in what looks like a nightclub, with only a red robe hiding her derriere, as she proudly smiles at the camera, while exposing herself in quite a disturbing manner.

Nyota Ndogo was taken aback by the lady’s ‘clothing’ (or lack of) and she couldn’t help but wonder what this generation has turned to. The mother of two decided to share the photo on her social media, then went on a rant about how this kind of risque dressing is unacceptable.

Miss Kenya 2017 Badly Trolled On Twitter For Her Take On Donald Trump’s Presidency

During the question and answer segment, comedian/TV show host Steve Harvey asked Miss Kenya for her opinion on Donald Trump’s presidency. Miss Kenya then appeared to hesitate and soon after delivered the most jaw-dropping answer, that trended for several days.

miss kenya 2

Here’s her answer to the Trump question: “Politics … ahh OK let me just start again. Donald Trump, having been elected as the President of the United States, may not have been the choice of many people living in the United States because of the divided support system for the outgoing President Barack Obama, who has supporting an upcoming woman President … who was supposed to be a woman President Hillary Clinton…So, so many people oppose his position. But I feel that once [Trump] took up his position, he was able to unify the entire nation,”

Ester Were has come out to clear the misconception that she supported Trump in her statement, citing that she used the words “Unify The Entire Nation” to mean that after Trump’s election, people got united against him.

Men Note! 10 Things You Should Have In Mind Before Dating A Fashion Girl

It’s no secret that a fashion girl has a notorious reputation for being just a teeny bit high maintenance.

Whatever truth there may be to that – hey, we just wanna look good! – women who work in fashion or simply just love it enough to have five years worth of Vogue issues stashed in their closets – are also some of the most creative and ambitious girls you’ll ever date.

Sure, you may not “get” everything she wears but you’ll also never leave the house looking less than amazing ever again. Here’s what to expect when you date a woman whose other true love in life is Christian Dior.

1. You’re not going to love everything she wears…
There will be a day where she shows up for a date in a pair of leather culottes that are big enough to fit two of her or wearing a turtleneck layered under her button-down. Sometimes guys just don’t get our clothes, and that’s okay. As long as we are comfortable.

2. You’re going to start spending a lot more time in dressing rooms.
Be ready to hear the words, “So what do you think?” over and over again. The answer? It’s always, “Looks great, babe!” Trust us on this one.

fashion-girl2

3. Understand her fashion sense, because she only dresses for herself.
Even if you harbor a burning hatred for said leather culottes or the five layers she’s wearing, she won’t care. Newsflash: Fashion girls aren’t usually dressing for the attention of men or even for other women. They’re dressing for themselves and they don’t really care what you think of their outfits.

4. She’s not gone missing, it’s just fashion week.
Whether fashion week means being lucky enough to actually attend the shows or being holed up in her room with her laptop watching runway live streams, you might not hear from her for awhile during fashion week. Don’t take offense – she’ll be right back after the last model has stepped off the catwalk.

5. You’ll never leave the house in a bad outfit again.
A major closet upgrade is coming your way. You’ll never know how much you needed a well-dressed girlfriend in your life until you have one. And this is the time you shine too.

6. “The Instagram Boyfriend” is a very real thing.
Like taking pictures? We hope so – because from now on whenever she needs an #OOTD shot for Instagram, expect her to hit you up as her photographer. Don’t worry, she’ll always give you photo creds. Just don’t you dare eat anything before she gets the perfect overhead shot of your Sunday brunch.

7. You’re going to have to learn who Alexander Wang is.
Karl who? She’s going to be throwing around designer names left and right – get ready for a quick crash course in fashion history. You’re welcome.

8. She’s not afraid to be an independent woman.
We’re talking about the girl who isn’t afraid to wear something out of the house that’s deemed totally ridiculous by others. She’s confident, she’s ambitious and she’s independent – don’t forget it.

9. You’re going to be terrified by how much she spends on shoes.
There’s going to be a time when she blows half a month’s rent on a pair of shoes or her dream bag. Trust us, she’s aware it’s ridiculous – just please, please don’t judge her for it.

10. Shopping will qualify as a date.
Even if you don’t make an entire night out of it, she’s probably going to want to stop by that sample sale on your way to dinner and a movie – don’t hate her for it.

Willy Paul May Be Young, But His Suit Game Is So On Point. Check Him Out (Photos)

Gospel singer Willy Paul has over the years proven to be one of the most talented singers in the industry, not limiting his skills to gospel music.

He is a favorite artiste of Classic 105’s radio host, Maina Kageni, who regularly plays his songs and always appreciates his amazing voice.

Willy Paul is not only popular amongst the youth, but his music is also celebrated by the older generation and even played in night clubs, despite the genre being gospel music, which shows that his popularity is massive.

Though the singer has had on and off beef with his fellow singer and frenemy, Bahati, he always makes sure that he makes music that will receive positive support from his fans. Willy Paul is also known to be a fashionista, and always tries to keep up with the latest fashion trends.

Though he is a young guy, who loves wearing casual clothes, he does keep it classy once in a while, with impressive suits. I decided to compile a few photos of Willy Paul looking dapper in well-fitting  suits.

Check out the pictures below.
