Hollywood’s “Mane Man,” Clyde Haygood has created some of the best hairstyles and designs, presenting his work through stars such as the Kardashians and Naya Rivera. Now, I know this is my second post complimenting the Kardashians’ style and look – but I’m merely giving praise to the people that have managed to make these women look presentable and trendy! I mean, they clean up exceptionally well, and that wouldn’t be the case without the help of artists like Joyce Bonelli (see post below) and the topic of today, Clyde Haygood. He is literally a hair god! He manages to create such full and unique-looking hairstyles that are both creative and gorgeous.
A part of being a celebrity like Naya Rivera and the Kardashians is maintaining perfect hair! I mean c’mon, the majority of the time we see these celebrities is when they’re looking amazing, and this is only done through the help of their style team.
Let’s take a look at some of Clyde Haygood’s best works and why we love them so much.
The Pom-Pom Ponytail!
Amazing! Why does Naya Rivera look like she has 3 times as much hair as I do? Thick and flowing, on top of that! The amount of teasing on my hair, with the addition of hair extensions, would still not amount to the precision and perfection found within this hairstyle. It looks effortless while still maintaining a completely chic appeal to it.
Clyde Haygood knows his clients, and accommodates to their looks – you don’t seem him doing Naya Rivera’s Pom-Pom Ponytail on someone like Khloe Kardashian. This look works because of Naya’s petite face, along with her tiny physique. The hair is big and bold throughout the ponytail, and the side bangs give a sense of alluring mystery that adds to Naya Rivera’s overall personality. The hairstyle also helps to accent her own facial features, highlight her eyes, slightly covered by the flowing bangs, and the deep hair color works to match the darkness of those eyes. Of course, I can see the Pom-Pom Ponytail on someone like Kim Kardashian, but not the same, exact style of Naya’s, maybe another version of it that would accent her own personal features.
Who doesn’t remember Khloe’s side cornrowed hair on the most recent Keeping up with the Kardashians?! Aside from the drama that the episode had brought, Khloe was rocking these cornrows, paired with a fairly pink and perky makeup style created by Joyce. Love it! The best part about having the dreadlocks only on one side of the face helps to not overwhelm the appeal of the look – it would be a bit too much if her whole head was cornrowed. The style also conveys a sense of uniqueness that Clyde Haygood is known for – not many hairstylists will send out their clients with such a bold piece of work, but he knows just how creative and bold to make his hairstyles without overwhelming the entire piece. The cornrows help to keep the hair out of Khloe’s face, revealing her amazing cheek bones and dark eyes. Whereas, the other half of her face presents her hair as long flowing, draping down and concealing part her behind these wavy locks. An overall beautiful, intricate, and stylish masterpiece!
Who made Kim BLONDE?! Clyde did!
If anyone else has been keeping up with these Kardashians, they would know by now that Kim Kardashian has officially gone blonde. And we love it! Clyde managed to color Kim’s hair in a way where the blonde color isn’t too overwhelming! He adds some dark highlights to the blonde hair, allowing it to look more natural. It works! Kim looks better than ever, and rocks this hairstyle with all the help of Clyde Haygood. Where would she be without him?!
A lot of times, celebrities want a little bit of change in their lives, dying their hair to add a little bit of variety to their look. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. In this case, Kim’s blonde hair worked, and there is a lot of detail put into this look so that she is able to maintain her new hair color! Without the dark highlights we would have completely lost Kim. The dark highlights help to coordinate with her dark eyes. And the combination of light and dark tones help to accent her exotic features.
