Happy Monday! Today’s Taneica Fashionista is called black power and is all about black and the power that it wields when done with the right accessories! You might also notice that there’s no more “Aunt Viv” atop my head! I’m rocking a hair style that is a little more my speed, and is in the form of crochet braids! I have been longing to try blue black hair for YEARS now, and several things have stopped me from giving it a try. Everything from my job, to not finding the right dye, to downright fear, kept me from trying this hair color, blue black, that I have been lusting after for the LONGEST time. Anyway, with a little experimenting, I was able to get the perfect shade of blue black. I even added streaks of bright blue to the front to really give it an extra punch of color and edge. I am in LOVE with this shade! After searching high and low, on both the internet AND in my local beauty stores, I hadn’t been able to locate Kanekalon OR Marley hair in the perfect shade of deep blue-ish/black.
Well, since I couldn’t find it, I made it myself! Yup, all of the colors are mixed and curled by yours truly to create this super fun, super edgy, but still classy and professional look! Comment below and let me know what you think about my new hair color! If you like, I might do a video, showing you how I did it!
Ok, so about my outfit. I wanted to see if I could still pill off a super professional look with this blue hair, so I opted for a very simply baseline pallet with the black dress and black shoes.
To still give the outfit a bit of edge, I’ve added this very chic, very edgy Pegasus necklace from Stella and Dot. I layered an engravable necklace to the Pegasus to soften the necklace and add more dimension to the look. I completed the look with my favorite tote of the moment.
