Fly Natural Hair: Simple, Chic TWA Headband


Short hair doesn’t have to be boring. This beaded head band is the perfect accessory to add a little flirty pazzaz to your natural look. The model in this pic really lets her natural beauty shine with minimal makeup. Her curls are finger-defined with product. This look can be achieved using a twist defining cream or a gel, water and oil mix. Her earrings and necklace provide a feminine and sultry touch. She is killing this TWA!

Fly Natural Hair Daily: Side Twist + Roll up Protective Style

I’m so impressed with the way our sisters create inventive ways of styling that are both chic and practical. This is one that I would do after a fresh blowout or with an old twist-out. The hair is parted and slicked back on one side. The other side is beautifully smoothed down into a loose flat twist that hangs down over her face and swings around to the back. The hair is then gathered in the back, rolled and pinned up into a bun. This a great DIY, protective style. All the end are tucked away nicely. Way to go!

Vintage Black Swag: 1969 Noxzema Ad

Hey guys! We’re kicking off Black History Month with a little swag. Check in with us for more beautiful photos celebrating Black beauty.


People of African decent are known for having beautiful skin. This Noxzema ad appeared in 1969 in Ebony Magazine. It displays the beauty and diversity of African-American women. The ad reads, “If the girls with the most beautiful skin in the world wash with noxzema…why shouldn’t you?” This ad is advertising gold in the clever use of the genetic makeup of African-Americans to tell their message. Having grown up in the 50’s and 60’s this is probably one of the reasons my mother never wore anything on her face but Noxzema all her life. She barely had any wrinkles in her face or gray hair for the matter as she aged.  Timeless Black beauty.
