10 Super Cute Hairstyles for Girls with Curly Hair

While some individuals struggle to grow even a little bit of hair on their head (because sadly they are bald), there are several others blessed with lots of hair. Hair comes in varieties. Some are long, others short, some thick, others very light, some curly, others very straight, some brown and others black.

With these varieties, at times one may feel a little uneasy when they have naturally curled hair, imagining that the best type of hair should be straight and not anywhere near curly. But then again, if nature endows one with these unusually striking traits, they need to be thankful and not resentful. Reason; curly hair is exotic, unique, striking and very classy. To make matters even better, there are several hairstyles for girls with curly hair.

One advantage curly hair products has over the straight one is that there is no need to seek curls if you want an amazing hairstyle that makes heads turns. Your hair is naturally curly and all you need is to set it. Perhaps the most common curly hairstyle for black women is the Pixie Cropped. Since it works best with curly short hair, this hairdo is ideal with a variety of head shapes.

Flower clips too is another ideal hairstyle that could make curly hair look great. For this style, the hair is swept in an easy pony and held in place using a hair band then flowers are clipped on side of the head. You may as well choose to have the flowers in the middle, but they are best on one side as it gives one a professional look. This hairstyle can be worn in many different ways and you can find more details on this article – Short Curly Hairstyles – BeTrendsetter.

Referring to that article, here I am going to show you some hairstyles:

Braided crown is a great way of styling hair too. It is best for blondes or women with not very black hair. At the same time, one could try out the pinned curls. The pins cannot be used randomly in this case and therefore there is need for a professional touch. If you have to do this alone, remember it requires lots of care and concentration. You can choose where the pins need to be placed. They should not be visible for any reason. The hair can then be knotted and tucked in using pins in a professional fashion.

The bob hairstyle has survived all these years and is still an amazing hairdo. Most people are used to the short bob, but there are plenty of long bob hairstyles that may look great on ladies with curly hair. Combing the hair until it shines; one may let the curls be pronounced at the ends to give a curly finish. Pins can be used to let the curls stay in place.

The braided crown has stolen the limelight in 2016. A simple hairdo with the braid at the top of the head and pins used to tuck hair into place for the other parts, this simple style can bear amazing results. Of course there are other hairstyles for curly hair; however, the end result largely depends on an individual’s choice of hairdresser. Curly hair is a blessing in disguise when properly styled.

I will also give you the tools I used to help me get over this debilitating & crippling falsehood. Fear plays upon our mindset. Sending out imaginary negatives to hinder our growth and keep us from moving forward with our passions, purpose and ultimate happiness. When we are happy doing the things we love, we are at our most productive. Contributing to society by using my life experiences for change, makes me happy. Making a difference in the lives of others, makes me happy!

On the journey to “becoming” I’ve learned from living life experiences, that until we know and have confidence in ourselves, we cannot do the work we’re meant to do. In order to do that work, we must beat that nasty, nagging, offsetting, and insidious thing, called F.E.A.R.!

False Evidence Appearing Real!  Hmmm, how about that? Puts it all in perspective, doesn’t it?

There are ways to keep fear from sabotaging our dreams so we can get on with the job we were put here to do. There’s no time to play with false evidence here! Soon you’ll read my authentic woman story and you’ll become acquainted with the life lessons I’ve learned and put into effect these 10 years as I continue on a journey toward living an authentic life; happy, whole and productive!

Empowering Our Girls Through Self Esteem and Self Love

Today, I watched a bit of the Wendy Williams Show round table where she invited four celebrity guests to join her to discuss everything trending in Thursdays’ celebrity news and views. In addition to watching the show, I also take notes on matters of “celebrity” importance to share with blog readers at my other site.

Today’s discussion resonated because it centered on Chris Brown and Rihanna getting back together. In the aftermath of allegations of the domestic violence surrounding their breakup…Chris Brown ordered to stay away from Rihanna and Rihanna talking to Oprah in a sat down interview afterwards; the views of whether they should have gotten back together at all were topic for debate. Everyone basically said no. However, Oprah Winfrey was called out because she stated if the two of them had, in essence, learned and grown from the experience; then, she wished them well.

Today is International Day Of The Girl. It is a day focused upon teaching girls about the importance of knowledge through education. October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. So, the reason for my post is to speak about the responsibility we have as mothers to empower our girls with the knowledge that will serve to educate them against becoming victim to bullying and domestic abuse.

Seemingly, the lack of self esteem in young women and girls, allows for others to take advantage of and oftentimes cause them harm. As a woman, mother and grandmother of 4 girls, I am all for passing the “woman power” gauntlet that comes with living and learning from life experiences.

Dr. Ilona Jerabek is President of Psychtests, a subsidiary of Queedom Research, which provides assessments into the human psyche. According to Dr. Jerabek, “building self esteem is like going through a gauntlet: it can and will take a battering with the many trials life can bring.” She goes on to tell us that the lowest age for a girls’ self esteem is below 18. It will peak between the ages of 18-24 before dropping again in their mid to late 20′s. It is after the late 20’s that women will began to experience a steady increase of self-esteem.

Education starts in the home. It is up to us, as parents of girls (boys certainly not excluded) to teach them the value of who they are. They are worthy. ..they matter…their voices should be heard and they have a right to say “NO” in any situation that causes them discomfort.

By teaching our girls to love themselves just as they are, to take pride in their accomplishments and to know they are “enough” no matter what. Maybe discussions like the one held over at Wendy Williams celebrity round table will become a thing of the past.

Peace,blessings and abundance.

Repurpose Your Life and Reclaim Your Life Source

Someone at my “day” job said something the other day that sorta got my goat. S/he went “well, if you don’t like your job, you can always quit. You don’t have to work there anymore, just quit, for christsakes!” I felt the fever rise up in my soul and spoke at once. It’s not always so easy to quit something that puts food on the table, pay surmounting bills and keep a roof over ones’ head! It’s not always easy for a single parent to abort the medical insurance that keeps their children healthy. It’s not always easy to utter the words to Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You!” when consequence from your hasty actions looms.. And yet, holding onto a job that literally “sucks” will ultimately suck the life force right out of you!

But, there are ways to combat the fatigue of a demanding, uncaring situation and that is to “fight the system” by becoming an advocate for fairness: How you’re treated. Spoken to. What you’re willing to accept from an employer…Demeaning requests? Low pay, or, no pay? Do as I say, not as I do? Blatant favoritism toward others? In order to feel good about yourself while working for others under such conditions, sometimes you must become proactive and seek clarity. Speak with your employer. Make your feelings known. Ask questions and always document what you know to be an unfair circumstance.

Ultimately, experiencing discontent on a job, will cause you to disconnect and seek another recourse, but, be ready. Prepare yourself for the transition. When the time comes and you’ve made the decision to leave, or, you’re terminated for not being a “team player”, take your leave with grace and dignity. Know that you’re like a fine wine that just keep getting better with age!

Thanks to all of you brave women living a life of authenticity! Your stories serve to inspire and encourage others to become the woman they’ve always wanted to know as they live out their “Truth!” The doors are still open here and your story is always welcomed…
