The Real Housewives of Atlanta- Who, What, Hair!1

Tonight, I watched the Real Housewives of Atlanta that debuted on the Bravo Network . The show was off to such a great start. First, there was the debut of Kenya Moore at the Bailey Agency Jet Beauty Search; in which I was happy to see that Cynthia's agency was gaining momentum contrary to what you read in the blogs. I also loved that the hairstyles on the season opener were so beautiful and stunning.  My favorite hairstyles came from Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore. Clearly from look of that pic (cut left) that Kenya Moore (Miss USA) and new "housewife" made quite the impression. (Tee hee)

Cynthia came on the scene talking about her beautiful daughter Noelle's academic future at her and Peter's home rocking this lovely roller set look. I just love how plush her curls looked.
Cynthia then showed off her hair at the Bailey Agency Jet Beauty search in this sultry bone straight Cher style accompanied with a mega-watt smile.
And in her confessional scene- she completely worked it with her wavy malaysian style. Ms. Kenya can't try Cynthia with this style. (snaps fingers)
Just a side note, Cynthia launched her own hair line called Hair Couture by Cynthia Bailey in the late summer and I am so sure that she is rocking the hair from her own line. Her brand is awesome.
Kenya on the other hand worked the reverse ombre hair. I fell in love with her hair. I truly had hair envy when I saw her. In the pic below, she was rocking the style made famous by Kim Kardashian. I just loved it on her and I loved how radiant her color was and how it translated on camera.

Kenya also worked it with this side swooped rendition of the famous "Kim K" coif. Just stunning.
Check out the Real Housewives of Atlanta on Bravo and stay tuned for more commentary regarding their hairstyles through out the season.



Styling your Senegalese Braids: Look 1 - the Cross Bun Roll

Hello readers, I know that it has been so long, but I have been on hiatus from MHMB due to developing MHMB's sister blog Fashion Honey ( Now that I got that out of the way, I am back to show you different styles that I love to do with my hair whether its braids or just my natural hair. This post is for my ladies that have senegalese twists or locks. I don't believe that the twisting effect will appear as vividly as it has been done on me.
Ok so on how to how to recreate this look!
Style: Cross Bun Roll
Hair Type: Braids or Locks
Difficulty: Moderate
1.  Take braided/locked hair and split braids into 4 sections.
2. This look is achieved by having the pompadour effect occur on the left  frontal quadrant of your head. Take Section 1 (Frontal/Rightsided section) and split into one half and twist braids/locks into two large braids.
3. Twist section 1 into Section 2 and wrap Section 2 towards the center and drop collected section into Quadrant 3 (left neck based section.).
4. Finally, take the collected portion of Section 3 and twist it into section 4 ( right neck based section). Take section 4 and twist it upward towards Section 1 and finally pinning it into Section 2.
Your look should appear as pictured below.

See you soon!
