Clyde – Hair God

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.

“Ghetto Gorgeous!”

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.

[Makeup] Artist of the Day: Joyce Bonelli

Today’s blog post is dedicated to the amazing [makeup] artist Joyce Bonelli! This post will convey the amazing makeup talents of Joyce Bonelli, and how to achieve similar results in your own makeup endeavors.

For those of you who don’t know, Joyce Bonelli does the makeup of some major stars of today – Nicki Minaj and Kim Kardashian. Her style ranges from bold and fun, all the way to simple and sheer – either way, she is able to convey any style, making it her own, and having the ability to highlight her subject’s most prominent and beautiful features.

The last season of American Idol starred Nicki Minaj as one of the female judges for the show. Some days she looked fierce with bright, neon themed makeup to match her bold fashion choices, and other day she kept it simple, with a fitting trendy outfit to match a fitting and naturally nude choice of makeup! Either way, Nicki Minaj rocks whatever outfit and makeup choice she presents for the show, and it is not only her personality that lets these aspects of her shine – but it is through the help of her own personal stylists and makeup artists that help highlight the best parts of Nicki. Where would she be without the help of Joyce Bonelli? Joyce offers the face!

I’ve seen Nicki with almost every makeup style there is, but she rocks it no matter what. Just look at this image of her from the past Idol television show! Really simple eye makeup, and a bold lip. Her eyebrows are filled in with a light brown, as to not take away from other prominent features on her face – such as her cheeks and nose which are accented by a highlighter. The red lip color perfect matches the dress, and works as the focal point for this amazingly presentable beauty.

In comparison is Kim Kardashian’s bold eye, nude lip, makeup look! Keeping it simple just like Nicki’s picture shown above, Kim keeps her hair tied back, allowing all of her prominent face features to be shown at their best. Joyce highlights the Kardashian’s famous jaw line and cheek bones with a light bronzer on the side of her cheeks, the lip color helps to highlight the bronzer’s sheer nude pink and orange undertones. The smokey eyes help to enhance Kim’s dark brown eyes, also highlighting her fierce and exotic features. The darkness of the eyes and nude appeal of the entire face and lips help to accentuate these amazing brown eyes! Joyce further accentuates the look by winging out the liner and eye shadow just a bit, giving a more cat-like appeal to the look… adding model and mystery to an already beautiful piece!

I’ve seen Joyce create some really bold and bright pieces to these stars, but nothing beats managing a sheer, natural look, while managing to have major aspects of these ladies pop out! Joyce uses the red lipstick to accentuate Nicki’s voluptuous lips, and allows the effect of the smokey eye to emphasize Kim’s deep and dark brown eyes.

Both looks are easily attainable! Simply by looking at these pictures you can get an idea of exactly what Joyce does to ensure the presentation of her star’s outmost beauty:

1. Highlighting your best features is the most important part.

2. Also, you don’t want too much color, since that may be a bit overbearing…

3. The best thing to do is accentuate parts of your appearance (eyes, lips), and allowing that to be the center of your makeup look!

Another great aspect of Joyce’s makeup is that it never ever looks too heavy. That, in my opinion, is perhaps one of the worst crimes in makeup. Having your makeup look too cakey or even too heavy always has its downfalls. The foundation she uses is always light, covering just the right amount, but not covering too much, still managing a natural look on Nicki and Kim.

Additionally, she doesn’t go wild with color, and when she does, she ensures that any color on the stars face will accentuate with all the other makeup tones, colors, and assets.

Don’t be afraid to experiment! Just remember, less is more and it’s better to have a natural look while highlight key features, instead of trying to make everything stand out (this on its own is too overwhelming, and simply unnecessary).

Hope these makeup tips helped and inspired you in some way! Enjoy!
