Description

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.
