After nearly a decade of beachy waves, sleek, straight, and shiny hair has made a huge comeback. And while curls are beautiful in their own right, straight hair often gets a bad rap as "boring.” But long or short, super straight locks are elegant and bold.

Long hair and summer go together about as well as a snow cone and the surface of the sun. Both make a drippy, goopy mess in a matter of seconds. If you’re looking to make the chop while the temperatures soar, 2018 is your year because shorter styles are totally on trend. And if you just want to get your long locks out of the way until fall without making the chop, there are plenty of stylish hair accessories to keep you looking cool even into triple digits.

Every decade has its own rules for how tame hair should be. The 80s were all about the power perm and a set of hot rollers, while the 90s and early 2000s saw the rise of the flat iron. But decades past shared one thing in common: natural curls were meant to be tamed in the name of fashion.

You don’t need a haircut yet, but you want that "just left the hair salon,” hair. You know, where you waltz out the salon, flip your hair, and run your fingers through your strands, as if you just stepped off the runway. Yeah, that feeling!

Ever notice how hair just looks better at the beach? The mixture of sun, sand, and salt water gives hair a sexy, messy look that’s easy to achieve when you’re drinking daiquiris at a seaside seafood shack but much harder to maintain year-round. However, there are a whole host of sea salt hair products out there to keep you in summer-worthy waves no matter the season.

From fixing our cars and mowing the lawn to getting rid of the spiders and other creepy crawlies in our house, the men in our lives are often called upon to take care of some of life’s more unpleasant tasks. Given their dedication and bravery, we tend to overlook their less than fashionable clothing choices.

Ladies love a sharp dressed man though, so instead of a new set of tools or a six-pack of his favorite adult beverage this Father’s Day, why not consider making over the man in your life? We asked the experts at Clothing Concierge for some do’s and don’ts of men’s fashion.

The ponytail is one of the most casual hairstyles out there. It’s a default look when you don’t want to be bothered with your hair or you’re making a quick trip to the gym. However, this spring a fancier ponytail is a very popular style.

When you’re shopping for hair care products, it’s wise to focus on the texture of your hair and not the color of your skin, according to Chonne Thomas, hair stylist with Healthy Strands Rock at Lionel’s Barber and Beauty. Although African American hair typically differs from other hair types, the texture still varies.
