The right hair for a traditional wedding

Summer is finally here, and everyone knows that summer equals wedding season!!

These days, people find themselves attending two weddings, a traditional and a white wedding, which usually happen on two different days and require two different outfits. By now you probably have an idea of which weddings you will be attending and what outfits you will be wearing, but what about your hair?

We all know what a nightmare it is to manage bad hair while trying to have a good time. At a wedding, your hair should be the least of your worries.

When attending a white wedding the most obvious choice is silky hair, and at a traditional wedding, most people choose to wear their natural hair, wear a doek or wear natural hair textures. But why stick to what is typical, why not wear what best works for you. Here are a few hairsprations to have you hair-ready for both traditional and the white wedding season.

If you are bridesmaids or a guest

Natural, not for you?Let’s face it, some Beweavers will never wear natural textures. So, what happens if you want your hair to look natural, but still want a silky look? Try the Hair by Sisi Cambodian Curl. This hair looks like natural hair because of its curl pattern, but it can also be worn silky straight, so you get the best of both world. Just remember to keep the hair short (12″-16″), if you want it to look closer to natural hair.

Want to keep it natural? Any of the Hair by Sisi Blowout hair types are the best option for traditional wedding. This is because when worn as a wig, the hair requires little to no maintenance, which means you can look fabulous without paying much attention to your hair. Remember that if you wear the hair as a sew-in, you will have to put in a little more work, as the maintenance will always increase when you are wearing a weave in comparison to a wig.


Remember, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t wear silky hair to a traditional wedding and natural hair textures to a white wedding. The choice is yours, so do what makes you happy. If you want to look fab on both the white and traditional wedding then and you don’t want to buy two different wigs or weaves, find your outfit first and then hair to match. This way you can still enjoy the hair long after the wedding. If you choose your hair first, you might struggle to find an outfit that will showcase your hair, without overpowering it or dimming its shine.

Hair for the Bride

If you are a bride, they honey, switch it up! It’s your big, the spotlight will be on you, so why not do what you want to do, and if that means two different types of hair, then go for it. If your traditional wedding is on the same day or the day after/before your white wedding then a Hair by Sisi custom wig unit is your best choice. Our custom wig units are made using a high tech wig cap which molds itself to your head shape, ensuring the best security. With a Hair by Sisi custom wig, you don’t have to worry about the wig shifting, moving or falling off. Simply put the wig on, line up your parting if you have one and you are ready to go. When you are done for the day, just take it off an onto the next. With two wigs, you don’t have to choose a dress to match your hair, but rather choose hair that will match your dress. If you indecisive a pop into the Hair by Sisi Hair Boutique and Installation Bar at 27 Boxes Melville for a free consultation ahead of the big day.

The Kinky Straight Weave

How to take care of your Kinky straight weave

The Kinky straight weave or BlowOut straight weave is currently one of the most popular texture in the hair world. This is mainly due to the fact that it resembles African textures, so it look very natural and extremely realistic. Although it looks amazing, it can cause a kink in your confidence if you don’t know how to maintain it.  So for all those first-timers, here are a few tips on how to take care of your Kinky straight weave.

Kinky Straight Weave  Kinky Straight Weave Kinky Straight Weave

Washing And Conditioning 

Wash and Conditioning your hair at least twice a week. Simply washing with shampoo will dehydrate your weave so it is highly recommended that you use a conditioner after you shampoo, or forget the shampoo altogether and just co-wash. If you decide to co-wash, remember to use a clarifying shampoo every other week. Clarifying shampoo will remove product build up.

With conditioner in your hair, use a wide tooth comb to detangle and distribute the conditioner throughout the hair. Make sure the hair is fully coated with conditioner while combing. Once you have combed through the hair, rinse thoroughly with cold water. Remember to use a cotton towel to pat dry your hair,  do not rub or scrunch the hair together, rubbing will cause tangles. Then let your hair air dry.

The nice thing about this type of texture is that it doesn’t need too much hair products.  However, when it is dirty, it is more likely to tangle . Removing tangles isn’t as hard, simply run your fingers through your hair and use a paddle brush to smooth it out. Don’t brush from root to ends, because it will cause shedding. Rather work your way up from the tip to the roots.

Moisturising and Styling 

Natural textures are just like our natural hair, the only difference is that our natural hair receives natural oils form your scalp and your weave will not, so it won’t get the nourishment that it needs. Using argan oil and conditioner on damp hair will give your weave great shine and will keep it well moisturised, but always remember that less is more when it comes to kinky weaves. It can be curled, which is amazing if you want to switch things up, but minimize the use of heat, rather use a non-heat method to curl. In fact heat should be the least of your worries as it is to be worn as natural as it is.

Daily Tips

•Don’t wash daily.
•Limit the use of hair spray and alcohol based hair products.
•Water keeps it in its natural state so don’t be afraid of walking in the rain.
•Too much heat can cause permanent damage.
•Use a silk head wrap or pillow case to protect your hair over night.

Getting To Know Kim Kimble

About Kim Kimble

Kimberly Kimble, who is most commonly known as Kim Kimble was born in Chicago, Illinois on 24th December 1971. She is a celebrity hairstylist, beauty expert, and entrepreneur. Kimble is basically the hands behind famous manes like Beyonce, Halle Berry, Kelly Rowland, Mary J Blige, Shakira and Rihanna. Her self-made Hairmpire consists of hair-care products, hair extensions, salons, and a TV show. So where did it all begin?

Kim_Kimble_salon kimkimblesalon

As a child, Kimble was a huge fan of fashion and had dreams of becoming a designer.  At the tender age two, she was cutting out magazine pictures and paper dolls to create her very own fashion world.  She enrolled at a beauty school and with no money to pay her tuition, she did hair on the side.  When Kimble realized how creative hair-styling could be, she ditched her fashion designer dreams and pursued the business of hair. After finishing beauty school, Kimble worked at her mother’s salon as a shampoo girl. Here she received simple teachings which became the building blocks of her career.

Both Kimble’s mother and grandmother were stylists, however, her gran was more into healthy hair and conditioning treatments, so  Kimble took what she could from both mother and gran, and created her very own techniques which she showcased at her 1st salon, Phaze II, in Los Angeles in 1995.

Kimble’s celebrity hairstyling career took off when she was hired by the film producer Robert Townsend as Key Hairstylist on the movie B*A*P*S starring Halle Berry. The elaborate hairpieces that she designed for the film caught the attention of other Hollywood executives and talent, which led to her working on gigs like the TV movie Cinderella and Moesha starring Brandy. Later Kimble worked on The Jamie Foxx Show, Two Can Play That Game and Austin Powers: Goldmember. During the filming of Austin Powers, Kimble worked with Beyonce, which made her a household name in the hair world.  Since then Kimble has worked on  productions like Think Like A Man, Sparkle, Dreamgirls, Obsessed, Deliver Us From Eva, to name a few.

A few years later, Kimble was asked if she ever doubted the magnitude of her career, to which she replied, “When preparation meets opportunity. You always have to be ready for something. When you get your mind set in preparing for something, you don’t have time to doubt.”

Kimble’s career has gone into overdrive and she holds a Net Worth of $1.5 Million. Her Hair Studio,  Extension Bar and educational classes are always fully booked but she still makes time to film her popular reality TV show, LA Hair. Kimble opened her second salon, Kimble Hair Studio in West Hollywood, California and launched Kimble Beauty™, a full range hair care line designed to address the needs of women of colour with various hair textures.  Since then she has developed K2 Beauty™, a line of professional hair care products designed to augment the Kimble Beauty™ brand.

It is her philosophy that healthy hair and great style should coexist – thus, her products and tools are designed to work with a wide range of ethnic hair textures to create chic, yet manageable styles. If this hair-guru is not running her latest project, Hairdrobe™ by Kim Kimble, a line of wigs and extensions, she can be found hair-styling the likes of Gabrielle Union, Vanessa Williams, the Williams sisters, Kerry Washington, Sanaa Lathan, Garcelle Beauvais, Tarji P. Henson and Zendaya.

BEST HAIR AT THE MET GALA 2016 

This year’s theme for the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute gala was Manus vs. Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. The evening was filled with all types of looks, from sexy space aliens to futuristic vibes. Here are our favourite hair looks that you need to see which will hopefull inspire your next ‘do.

BEYONCÉ

Bey kept (hair) things really simple this year with pin straight hair. Bey is known for her ever-changing hairstyles, but the common thread is that she always looks classy.  Even though she kept her hair simple, her edges looked perfect and her wig not only looked like her real hair, but the parting of the wig and her natural hair are perfectly positioned. 7/10

CIARA

Bow down B!*ches King Cici has arrived. This hair totally proved that Ciara can pull off anything.  Her 20s inspired chromed out finger waves took us back and in the very same moment shot us straight into the future. Although this hair is probably not the best as everyday hair (for those with normal jobs),  however if you want to turn heads, maybe this could be the hair for you. Ciara, 10/10

KYLIE JENNER

Kylie Jenner is known for hair amazing hair (extensions). She has rocked a variety of different looks  this year, from green, pastel pink, blue and grey, this girl is the queen of hair color. She literally sets hair trends for tweens and women across the world.  So when Kylie showed up in a jet black bob, we didn’t know what to think.  We must say that she (18) looks very mature with this hair, and if that’s the look she was going for, she nailed it.  To achieve this look, stick to the HBS Peruvian Slick hair. Not only does the hair look and feel great, it will always stay straight (unless styled differently) which means you can rock your bob without the fear of the hair changing shape. 7/10

ZENDAYA

Zendaya

Anyone remember Pearl Thusi’s hair at the Metros this year? Well for all those who didn’t understand what she was doing, here is another look.  This retro, bowl-cut wig worked perfectly to shape Zendaya Coleman’s face and showed off her bronzed eyes. Although not everyone is running to get their hair done like this, we see her visions and are fully impressed by Zendaya’s personal beauty flare. 9/10

LUPITA NYONG’O 

7c7f356858b340ca3073c4913ce6a8e3

Lupita’s hair was sky high courtesy of a hair piece that needed to be seen to be believed. Her gravity-defying hairstyle reminded us of a cross between KimK’s Paper magazine cover hair and a character from Whoville, but better. This hair had everyone talking and really showed off the beauty of African hair and more so that natural hair can be unapologetically worn on the red carpet. Many women do not like wearing natural texture hair extensions, however, we believe that this may just change they way you feel about natural textured hair extensions. For similar hair extensions try the HBS BlowOut Hair. 8/10

JENNINFER HUDSON 

Jennifer Hudson Getty Images

Jennifer Hudson kept things short, sweet and simple, with her natural hair, styled in a sleek combed-back ‘do. The hair worked so well because it was slightly elevated and styled with a minimum poof. This hairstyle is great because it works well with many different face shapes. If your natural hair is relaxed, but not very thick, then add one 12″ bundle of the HBS Peruvian Slick Hair, and you too can achieve Jennifers look. 9/10

SOLANGE

Solange Knowles Getty / Dimitrios Kambouris

Solange is known to go against the grain, and do things they ways she wants, and this year the met gala proved no different. Slayange killed  her short, textured bob. Although this ‘do looks grand, be weary with this hair, it is not the easiest to maintain in winter.  Because the curls have been brushed out, the hair is more likely to dry out and become frizzy. If you have a good hair serum to combat the dryness, then get the  look with the HBS Cambodian Curl Hair. 8/10

JOURDAN DUNN 

jourdan-dunn-met-gala-2016

The supermodel not only wore a beautiful, metallic Olivier Rousteing gown, but she had silver grey hair to match.  Her sleek bob was colored a complementary shade of silvery pewter. We absolutely love this look on Dunn because many say that the grey trend has come and go, but JDunn clearly proved that it is her to stay. Achieve her look with 2 bundles of 12″ HBS Peruvian Slick Hair, with a matching closure.  The hair will need to be bleached and then coloured. It is advisable to take the hair to a professional, so as to minimize any potential damage to the hair.  8/10.

AJA NAOMI KING 

Aja-Naomi-King
Aja Naomi King Getty / Larry Busacca

We are not sure if Aja Naomi King got the memo, but nonetheless, her hair looked amazing. One of the  best ways to have a great hair experience is to choose hair that is similar to your natural hair texture.  Following this rule, it is difficult for us to spot whether or not Miss King has any extensions in her hair.  The hair has been slightly styled, in a messy, one side half up ‘do. Although this hair looks very easy to achieve, it does take some patients, practise, and adjustments.  Achieve a similar look with HBS Brazilan Swirl Hair, which blends effortlessly with African hair textures.  8/10

 

And there you have it beweavers, we hope you enjoyed it.  Remember to leave your comments down below.
