The legendary Chaka Khan is looking as vibrant and youthful as ever. Is it her luminous, line-free skin? Or that wildly wonderful hair of hers? Chaka Khan has also lost a lot of weight too, which is probably another reason for her inner and outer glow. In any case, the Queen of Funk knows how to rock trendy hair even on the cusp of 60! If you have dark skin like Chaka's, you too can be fresh and funky in vibrant red hair. Here's how:
Chaka Khan has chosen a glossy bold red. Tell your hairstylist that you want a deep cherry wine shade as the final result, to avoid getting an orangey Rihanna-style red. For the application, follow Khan's lead and go for a half head of highlights. For a blended look, tell your stylist for very thin highlights. To get bolder streaks like Chaka Khan, ask for thicker highlight sections. It's best to get a half head rather than a full head of highlights to keep your natural black hair underneath as a good base.
These hot red locks have only subtle layers cut around the edges which enhances the bounce and volume of the natural curls. This big voluptuous hairdo is perfect for those with naturally thick hair wanting a look with plenty of shape and width to compliment a long face. Regular trims will help prevent split ends.
Now that you have Chaka's hair, try out her eye-grabbing style and add some funk through your outfits and jewelry. And remember to invest in a great berry-shade of lip gloss like Khan is wearing here.
In this photo, Whitney Houston proves she had it. We've all seen her look worse for wear while she battled her demons, but her she looked in top form again, not to mention she was ageing fabulously.
Her classic, simple hairstyle can be worn by women of all ages and face shapes with medium-sized curls. Her hair has been nicely layered all over to show off her curls and create a soft, rounded silhouette, rather than the bottom-heavy shape girls with curly hair can end up with. She has allowed the front of her hair to drape over her face which creates a nice angle and draws attention to her eyes. Whitney has an oval face shape with a high forehead, so wearing styles that have a bit of coverage around the top can make everything look in proportion.
Whitney's fabulous cut would be nothing if her hair was damaged, so it's a good job she has shiny, healthy hair. Her rich dark brown hair color also compliments the cut nicely. If you have curls like Whitney, copy her haircut - and her hair care regime!
A combination of layers cut all through the back and sides of this 'do balances out the body and fullness making this hairstyle perfect for those looking for a big hairstyle to compliment a long face. Regular trims is needed every 4-6 weeks to maintain style and prevent slit ends.
