Hairnista TV: Wig Fun with Good Day ATL and Sunny's Hair & Wigs

Hello Lovelies!,

Your very own Hairnista was in Sunny's Girl mode on Fox 5's Good Day Atlanta this morning. You all know I love nothing more than a good wig and we were "wigging out" with anchors Suchita Vadlamani and Cheryl White. Along with my fellow Hairnistas and Sunny's Girls Dafina Memberr and Nikia Yancey, we show how you can change your look in the blink of an eye! Enjoy!

Wigging Out: Zoe Kravitz for Vera Wang Princess

I will admit that I'm never quite sure what is going on with Zoe's hair. Sometime it is utterly disheveled, and then there are times like this ad where it looks amazing. While I know she's rocked extensions in the past, I would venture to say that this is a great human hair wig...probably custom. As the daughter of Cosby Kid Lisa Bonet and Rock God Lenny Kravitz, Zoe is certified Hollywood royalty and quite fitting as the new face of Vera Wang's fragrance Princess. Her boho chic with a rocker-edge style is very fashion forward and I definitely consider her a Hairnista -to -Watch.

To get this look:
A custom human hair wig(preferably Indian Hair) would run about $600-1000. To rock this look on a budget try the "Princess" wig by Magic Touch. (I owe my wig crypt to Sunny's Hair & Wigs..and I have Princess in 2 colors lol)

Cover Watch: Demi Moore for W Magazine

I dare say that Demi looks better now than she did in her Brat Pack days. She's stunning on the cover of W magazine with her signature locks. You all know by now that I love when a Hairnista finds what works for her and rocks it well. Long is never boring on Demi. Whether she wears it stick straight with a center part or here flowing with soft volume, it is definitely a look I love. To my Hairnistas of a certain age, don't feel like you have to wear your hair short or that this look is too "young." Young is a state of mind and fabulous never gets old!

To get this look: Use a big barrel curling iron for volume and brush with a paddle brush to style. In need of extra length? Whip out your clip-ins to recreate this look for a night out or a sew-in for a more long term look.

Fan is optional :)

WERK! Amerie rocks Elle, Complex

Amerie is one of my absolute fave Celeb Hairnistas. With arguably the best hair and legs in the biz, she continues to kill it in her spreads in Complex and Elle magazines. I can truly appreciate her approach to her hair...she knows what works for her and sticks with it. Beautiful, long, lush layers will always be in style. So while everyone else is growing back in their shaved heads, she continues to look flawless.

Want this look for yourself? If you already have lengthy locks: Go thru your hair with a 1" or larger barrel curling iron and create loose messy curls. Next, set on jumbo mesh rollers for volume and you are ready to go. Need a little extra in the length department? You can recreate this look with clip-ins or a great sew-in. Wavy Virgin Indian hair in 22" will give you the perfect drama. The key to this look is sexy, touchable hair. No stiff pageant looks allowed! Don't worry about looking so "done."

Amerie's new album "In Love and War" via Def Jam is in stores now.

My New Baby: PRO-1037A Hair Steamer!

My steamer finally arrived and I was so excited to use it for the first time this weekend! I've raved about the wonders of steam for your hair and now I have my own personal machine and can do treatments anytime I want (at the salon it usually an extra $15/20 tacked onto your regular service). Thanks to all the positive feedback from my online Hairnistas, I ordered mine from SalonsRus for only $139.99. The steamer was very easy to assemble...all you will need is a wrench to tighten the screw at the bottom. After about 10 minutes of setting up I was ready to go.

The steamer took about 5 minutes to warm up, I added the distilled water, and voila'! I used ORS Replenishing Conditioner, extra virgin organic coconut oil, and argan oil on my freshly shampooed hair. You will not need a plastic cap like you normally do under a hooded dryer. By sitting under the steamer with your hair uncovered, you allow the steam to fully hydrate your hair. When steaming at home be sure to cover your shoulders with a towel and also a roll of cotton to go around your edges to catch the "drippies." The steam was definitely very warm, but not enough to actually felt like a spa experience. I feel like adding this regular treatment to my regimen will take my haircare experience to the next level. Want to treat your fave Hairnista for the holidays? Treat her to a steamer!

To have your own personal steam experience:
Distilled water
Your favorite oil and DC
Professional Steamer
20 minutes of free time :)
