Golden Globes 2018

This last weekend, international stars strutted their stuff on the red carpet to celebrate the 2018 Golden Globes. Many celebrities donned all black as they stood together in protest against sexual assault and harassment perpetrated against women in the film and TV industry.  Although thing looked a bit sombre, black did help showcase the hair and makeup on the night. “Hair” are some of few of our best Golden Globes Beauties.

When the hair gods say yes, no one can say no. If your natural hair is not long enough to convincingly pull off this style, then add some hair extensions and you are halfway there. BUT before you head out to buy some hair, remember one thing; your hair is only as good as the blend. With the correct texture match, anything is possible. Try using a texture that matches your natural hair (either the Hair by Sisi BlowOut Straight hair or the Brazilian Swirl hair).

Warming up to Summer

We are all gathered here today to finally say goodbye to winter but also to difficult hair days.

Ever noticed how winter changes your hair maintainance regime? As if the dry dull weather isn’t bad enough we have to deal with dry, frizzy, limp hair. But no need to dwell on the past, warmer temperature are definitely upon us, so say good bye to extreme hair care and hello to better hair days.

Summer holidays are just a few weeks away and we all know that before we change our hair do, we need at least a week or two to finalize our decision. So, before it’s too late, here are a few ideas on how to welcome summer with the perfect hair do.

Dare to be different?

30” weaves are so over done these days, not to mention the at hot as hell, so instead of looking like every other girl, why not stand out from the rest? A mohawk/undercut will definitely help showcase your individuality. It will definitely have heads turning, so choose wisely. If you are feeling particularly adventurous why not add some color to the tips of the hair.

Try an asymmetrical bob

Summer is the season for new beginnings, but if you’re not feeling a mowhak, then why not go short? A bob will always score points in the hair world, but an asymmetrical bob will add a bit of sass to your everyday bob.

Asymmetrical bob

Short ,sweet and sexy.

It’s amazing what a basic snip and cut can do to your appearance. Sometime woman just get 12″ in hair installed without getting it cut to their face shape. A basic cut will make the hair look even more natural, than simply installing the hair.

Trimmed bob

Something a little more elegant

For the ladies who like to keep it simple,  adding a bit of texture will make the world of a difference. A 12” shoulder length cut will look amazing on anyone who wants to look fresher faced this spring.

Elegant wavy bob

A pop of colour

For our more daring beweavers colour is always the answer. add some colour to your life this spring and you will definitely turn heads. Although it may seem scary but colour can boost your confidence. If you still unsure, star off off with burngurdey, blue/black before working your way up to the more bolder colours.

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.
