Kiyah Wright Interview By: Asia Diamond

Innovative... Entrepreneur... and Elegant are a few of the many words that can be used to describe Kiyah Wright. Bringing a breath of fresh air to the hair and beauty industry, this celebrity stylist has the golden hands to make anyone feel beautiful inside and out. Kiyah Wright developed her natural talent at a young age of 14, and has taken it higher and higher ever since. After a life changing meeting with Sean “P.Diddy” Combs, Ms. Wright had the honor or working with Mary J. Blige and Faith Evans, and continued to expand her list of distinguished clients with Tyra Banks, Iman, Brandy, Gabrielle Union, Jenifer Hudson, Kerry Washington, Taraji P. Henson, and many more.

How did hair styling start for you? I had an early passion for doing hair. I would sneak girls into my house and do their hair after school. My mom took that as a sign to enroll me in hair school at, Edison Career Center, in Kensington, MD. It all started when you met Sean (Diddy) Combs did you ever think that this is where it would lead you? I had no idea that meeting him would bring me to where I am today. You are a two-time Emmy Award winning celebrity hairstylist, how does that

make you feel? It’s amazing! Honestly, I was dozing off at the awards right before they called my name. I was Shocked, but grateful... and I had already prepared a speech. You are a well known hair stylist and have styled for some of the greatest entertainers in the world, is there someone you would like to style that you haven’t had the opportunity to style for? I would love to style Rihanna - I have not work with her before & I love her edgy style. Now let’s talk about your hair care

Whenever I want to achieve a flexible hold on my celebrity clients, whether it’s for an all day photo shoot, press junket, award show, or television appearance, I opt for a lightweight, yet firm hairspray that keeps the hair structured and styled and doesn’t cause a tacky build up after repeated use.

The biggest differentiator between my products and other hair stylists is my commitment to provide the highest quality products without sacrificing the effectiveness of the products and the integrity of my consumers’ hair all while considering their pockets. I want every consumer to be able to “Bring The Hollywood Look Home”. I know some hair stylists are known for colors, cuts, weaves- what is your strong suit? I’m best known for my seamless weaves. As such, I host “Perfect Your Weaves and Increase Your Income” Seminars around the country to teach stylists my industry techniques. It’s a popular class and I always encourage continued education in this industry. Ever think about coming out with a hair line? I have plans for an exclusive hair extensions line, especially since I aspire to cover all things hair, i.e. wigs, extensions, hot tools, etc. What can we expect next from you? To get where I am today wasn’t easy; it took great sacrifice and focus, but I kept my eye on the long-term goal. That long-term goal is to become a Brand Leader in the beauty industry. As I aspire to be the Paul Mitchell of texture hair care. So stay tuned!

Social Networking: Changing the Game For

Nail Technicians and Cosmetologists By Candace Harrison

T

oday, some nail technicians and cosmetologists are rising to the occasion by turning what once was a hobby into a full time career. Social Networking is changing the way beauty techs are building their business and getting new clients. Often, after having gotten their beauty license, nail techs and cosmetologists are not sure how to market their business. They find themselves not making the kind of money they had hoped for in their new venture. But for those who have mastered marketing skills, both online and offline, they have seen their business go from staggering to one that is thriving with new life and new business. Online technology has made it possible for nail technicians and cosmetologists to take their business to a whole new level of success. Sites like Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and YouTube have given nail technicians and cosmetologists a way to put their work and talent in front of hundreds of people daily. These social network-

ing sites have also given beauty techs an avenue to connect with their clients in a way that builds lasting relationships and continued profits month after month. Top beauty techs understand relationship building strategies that build a large following of loyal clients both in the offline world and online world. These techs reach beyond doing nails and hair. They realize by giving their clients more than what is expected and building relationships with their clients keeps them coming back and referring others more consistently. Successful techs are building better client relations through social networking sites by providing information and content their clients can use to enhance their daily lives. More than just doing nails, hair and makeup, they are giving beauty tips, advice, motivation, and conversing with their clients using social media. Social networking is changing the game for some Nail Technicians and Cosmetologist. Thanks to this new

idwest Black Hair Magazine had a chance to talk with one of the hottest young superstars in the industry, the talented Jacob Latimore. This r&b singer and actor is taking the world by storm. Coming off of a great 2013 year with his star performances in Black Nativity and Ride Along, Latimore continued his winning streak with his new movie The Maze Runner, as well as his new single featuring T-Pain, Heartbreak Heard Around The World. With a great head on his shoulders and tons of talent, we are sure that 2015 will be a great year for Jacob Latimore!

You just had a new movie hit theatre The Maze Runner. Tell us about The Maze Runner The Maze Runner is about a group of boys who are trapped inside a glade, surrounded by a giant maze. They are protected by sliding stone doors that close every night to protect them from the creatures that live out in the maze, Grievers. You play Jeff in The Maze Runner. Tell our readers about your character Jeff is a med-jack; slang term for doctor. Everybody plays a role inside this community they are thrown into. You have the most elite, the maze runners, the builders, and the cook. Who did you enjoy working with the most on set?  I bonded with pretty much everybody on set. We built a true brotherhood while filming.  Now you know I'm known for doing my homework lol, In 2013 you had the chance to work with some of the most amazing people in the industry what was it like working with them and what did you learn? Yes, Black Nativity. Legendary cast. Great experience. 

stays strong. I also use Ampro Gel and S-Curl Gel to keep my S-Curl Tell our readers (fans) something they may not know about Jacob Latimore? I'm a home body, I don't like to party or go out as much as your average young adult. You have a hot new single Heart Break Heard Around The World feat. T-Pain, were you speaking from personal experience? Yes. I've had my heart broken, but the really great thing about music is you can turn your painful situations in life into better things. What was it like working with T-pain? Great artist! He's a super cool, genuine guy. Whats next for Jacob Latimore ? I'm going to be spending a lot more time in the studio, and working my record to become number one.   

You are known for your acting and singing. Do you see yourself in the near future directing your own film? Yes, I do actually! It's a different field that I'm still learning. Now its time to talk about hair, every time I see you your hair is always on point. Who is your barber? Well, I have two! My uncle, Anthony Latimore from my hometown Milwaukee, WI. Also, my local barber, Tarik Mallett, here in Atlanta, GA where I'm currently living. Why did you choose them as your barber? They're simply great barbers! People I've known for a while, and I trust.  As an artist Im pretty sure its hard to make sure your hair stays on point when your on tour, or just to keep it fresh because you never know what can come up. How do you keep your hair looking fresh? I keep my pick and brush with me, and my hat game 37 www.MidwestBlackHair.com

arik Mallett is a licensed Professional Master Barber also the owner of Dream Cuts Barber Lounge LLC. His high IQ in the cosmetology world has made him a highly skilled craftsman with a celebrity clientele that spans the entertainment industry. At twelve years old, he was kicked out of his neighborhood barber shop after correcting one of its barbers. Undeterred, Tarik took matters into his own hands and purchased his first set of clippers. A move that would eventually shape his life. A scholar from a young age, Tarik attended Aviation High School in New York City, and the FSU/FAMU College of Engineering in Tallahassee, Florida. Feeling unchallenged by these pursuits, Tarik decided to stick with his true love, cutting hair -- a career that would land him job placements in various entertainment circles. Starting in the music industry, he expanded his reach to professional athletes, and finally to Hollywood. Along the way, Tarik has worked with some of his childhood idols including Anthony Mackie, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Theo James, Jason Weaver, Jacob Latimore, Harrison Ford, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, and Christopher Meloni. One of his favorite projects has been the Jackie Robinson movie, "42" where he had the privilege of barbering for its starring actor, Chadwick Boseman. Above all, Tarik Mallett is a proud husband, father, friend, and the epitome of the neighborhood barber- the guy you need to know!

HEALTH

MWBH Healthy Eating

to Get Lean! Simply put, eating clean means avoiding processed and refined foods, and instead consuming healthy whole foods. 4 Below are basic guidelines for eating clean. *Please check with your doctor before significantly changing your diet. Eat whole foods: Whole foods are foods that have not undergone any processing. The foods you eat on this type of plan are straight from the farm. For example, whole fruits and vegetables, whole grains, grass-fed and freerange meats, reduced fat dairy products, unsalted nuts, and seeds. Avoid processed foods: Processed foods are basically any food that has a label, meaning that more than one ingredient was used to make it. You don’t have to eliminate all processed foods (like canned beans, whole grain pasta, or natural cheese), but if you can’t pronounce an ingredient on a label, don’t put that food in your shopping cart. Eliminate refined sugar. This means stay away from 46 MIDWEST BLACK HAIR MAGAZINE - October 2014

candy bars, sugary cereals, snack cakes, or any other prepackaged junk food. Refined sugar provides nothing but calories, and has no nutritional value. Do not skip meals. By eating 6 small meals throughout the day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 3 snacks), you can help rev up your metabolism and never get so hungry that you feel deprived. Say goodbye to evening binging! Cook homemade meals. Instead of buying prepackaged meals, prepare homemade meals. You don’t have to be Chef [insert your name here] to make delicious meals. Utilize the internet to search for recipes. The more you cook, the better you will get at it. Combine healthy fats or protein with carbohydratess. Do you sometimes still feel hungry after a meal? For the most satisfaction, and so you’ll be less tempted to eat junk food, combine protein with carbs or carbs and healthy fat. This simple act will fuel your body and curb the hunger monster.

How to Apply Mineral Makeup for the Newbie By Jacci Berg

M

ineral makeup is becoming the latest trend in the makeup world and women (and some men) are jumping on the bandwagon and replacing their regular makeup routine with mineral makeup. Mineral makeup is being marketed as a more natural beauty product vs the other beauty products on the market. Now I'm not going to go further into if I believe the hype about mineral makeup but I will say I love how it applies. So whether more natural or not I'm going to be sticking to it for at least my foundation routine. With that it brings us to the point of the article. How in the world do you apply the stuff? Simple, continue reading and you will soon find out. Start by gathering everything you will need for your normal makeup routine. This can include: foundation, bronze, blush or warming color, mineral concealer (optional), powder or kabuki brush, concealer brush and a flat-top brush.

Next step: Your face should them be cleaned with a good cleanser and prepped thoroughly. For myself, I'll wash my face apply my moisturizer and sun block. You'll want a bit of moistness for the mineral makeup to stick. Concealer Step: Shake up a little of the mineral concealer or foundation (if you do not have concealer) gently on the lid and use the concealer brush to mix the concealer. After mixing, tap the excess powder from the concealer brush before using it to cover areas that need coverage. Pay attention to your under eye, dark spots, nose base and on blemishes. To achieve an even finish pat then blend out. Foundation Step: Take the powder brush and apply your foundation all over the face. Once the mineral is on your brush, apply the mineral makeup from the jaw area using swirling motions. Apply towards the inside of your face and then cover the mouth area, nose, forehead, eyes and the chin. If more coverage is needed,

use the flat-top brush to gently apply the foundation in a buffing motion. Blush and Bronzer Step: Apply the bronzer or warming color in your preferred method. Some people will apply it as an all over warm to the face while others will use it to contour. Afterwards apply the blush based on your face shape using the powder or a blush brush. Many people will tell you to smile to find the apples of your cheeks, then apply to the apples. This can actually give you a saggy look depending on where your apples are when you are not smiling. Your best bet is to experiment with applying it higher and maybe even blending up to your temple. Or hey maybe you are one of the lucky ones that doesn't look like Droppy Dog when the blush applied to the applies. High five, you go girl!

Most of the line they carry is $8 and under making it a cheap way to practice with mineral makeup. Jacci is the creator of www.beautyblogbyjacci.com. She loves to write about beauty tips, reviews and tutorials. Article Source: How to Apply Mineral Makeup for the Newbie
