Special Feature: One on One with A Man's Touch Hair Creator Jeff James

The hair weave/hair extensions industry is a billionaires industry.  There are so many Hair Stylists who claim to be hair weave masters but there is just one problem, there are only so many hair stylists that have truly mastered the craft of hair weave.  Jeff James falls in that category; he is a hair weave master.   Not only has he mastered it, he has launched his own hair weave/hair extension line and an advanced shampoo/conditioner hair system to help beautify his clientele and now the world.  SayWhatNews sat down with Jeff James and discussed his successful career as a Hair Stylist and his new hair/shampoo line, A Man’s Touch Hair:

SayWhatNews:  Good morning Jeff.  Thanks for sitting down and speaking with SayWhatNews.  Tell us who is Jeff James?

Jeff: I'm a stylist with a huge vision. I knew at a young age that hair was going to be my life. Growing up with a mother in the hair and beauty industry, as well as in my adolescence being a model myself became all I knew. 

SayWhatNews:  Jeff, you are a Hair Stylist out of Houston, Texas.  You mentioned your Mother was a Hair Stylist, so what exactly inspired you to become a Hair Stylist and how long have you been working in the Hair Industry?

 Jeff: I'm not originally from Houston, but I’ve been in the hair industry for about 10 years now, yet it feels like my entire life. Going to hair shows every year was always one of the most exciting times for me, I just knew it was only a matter of time.

Grisel Debuts Easy Ready to Wear Fashion Line for Spring 2015

Plus size model Grisel Paula debuts her Spring 2015 Ready to Wear collection.  The model started her clothing line,'' Grisel'' last year and has since become one of the top favorites for Plus Size Fashionistas. 

Plus Size Magazine exclusively got the details: Grisel debuts its Spring 2015 collection and it’s all about fashion that is “light and airy”. The brand told us directly:

Grisel decided with ‘light and airy’ for this collection because she wanted to introduce wearable, sexy options that transcended beyond body conscious and skater styles. During a trip to The Dominican Republic, Grisel realized the comfort and ease of being in barely anything (mainly swimsuits and coverups during the trip) and felt that should be conveyed in everyday fashion. As you see with some of the images that were released, there are a lot of sheer dresses (with built-in bodysuits) and lightweight pieces. Knowing that it would be very daring, she believes integrating these styles and fabrics in this spring collection opens the door for women to feel comfortable, whimsical, and sexy at the same time.

Easy Hairdos: No Heat Waves

Tired of putting heat on your hair everyday, well here is an easy way to style your hair with ease and no heat. Thanks to there is an easy to follow picture tutorial:

Step 1: Begin with dry hair parted and combed the way you want it for the hairstyle.

Step 2: Split your hair in 2 halves and begin by taking out a 1 inch section and clipping away the rest of the hair.

Step 3: Spray a generous amount of water onto your hand using a spray bottle.

Step 4: Run your hand over your hair a few times until the section is damp, but not too wet.

Step 5: We will be using two of our fingers to act as our curling barrel. For tighter curls, use only one finger.

Steps 6-9: Wrap the damp section of your hair loosely around your fingers.

Step 10: I will be using a combination of hair clips and bobby pins to pin my curls in place.

Step 11: Gently pull the curl off of your fingers, holding its shape, and place a pin inside of it to hold it in place.

Step 12: Continue with this same method in 1 inch sections on the rest of this half of hair, and spray on a generous amount of hairspray.

Step 13: Use the same method on the other half of your hair and spray with hairspray. Let the curls set for 30-45 minutes or until dry.

Step 14: Gently undo each of the hair clips/bobby pins and let the curls fall. Shake them out a bit, apply a few more sprays of hairspray and …

Step 15: Voila!


Must Have: Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel Nail Polish Kit

Must have: Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel Nail Polish kit.

I am so tired of painting my nails and after a day or two, my hands look like I have been putting my fingers through a food grinder because the nail polish has chipped off.  I am so in love with Gel nail polish because it last a very long time and your hands look perfect for weeks but who wants to go to the Nail Salon all the time and spend the money to have someone else paint your nails.  So, I heard about Sally Hansen's new Miracle Gel nail polish that you can do at home and decided to give it a try.

The best thing to do is buy the kit.  In the package you get the nail polish and the top coat.  Walmart had the kit for $14.97 which is a really good buy because the polish alone can run between $7.00 - $10.00 depending on where you buy it.

The one thing is to remember when you are painting your nails is to do two coats because the first coat will have some streaking but after placing the second coat on, you will have the look as if your nails are professionally done.

Now when using the top coat make sure your nails are 100% dry before using.

After about a week of wear and tear the my nails started to look rough but that's great, a whole week of having beautiful nails is definitely a positive.  And the bonus is when it comes to removing the polish it comes right off with one swipe of regular polish removal.
