Dashikis are a west African traditional outfit that seems to have taken over the world by storm. You can find many styles and designs of this beautiful African print.

I remember when I was growing up as a little girl in South Africa, legendary groups like Lady Smith Black Mambazo and Soul Brothers wore dashikis.

Like all fashion trends this one has found its way back again and now on a world stage.

You can rock the dashiki in just about any design, let your imagination guide you.

Here is some inspiration to get you started.

Styles That Make Your Hair Shine

You are your hair! Hair is a woman’s beauty feature that can easily be overlooked. What better way to express yourself then through your hair. Although we experiment with different hair styles throughout our lives and for different occasions; there is that one style that defines our persona.

Take a look at the styles that defined not just the moment but the stars that be.

If you had to go out with everything but your clothes what would it be? Why not wear the most amazing part of you, your hair?!


Hair can be trendsetting like any fashion item, pulling off a look like the one above sometimes requires attitude to be translated into your hair.

Go bold or go home…if you are confident enough sometimes the bare minimum will suffice.

It’s all about attitude and less about looks. But, it’s almost always about the hair.

The more hair the better and the crazy the better…after all a woman’s beauty is measured by her hair, whether thick, long, curly, straight or plain kinky. Hair is your best feature, the first thing you put on before anything else.
