Sasha-Shae on Week 1

Sasha-Shae on Week 1

SashaOverall I chose the photos of Ebony C to be the best because they were well done and truly exhibits what a natural model is all about, light, free, nature-in tuned, and just exuberant. Miss. Nina also had a good deal that showcased this. I think everyone did an overall good job for the first weeks challenge and I look forward to seeing what comes in the weeks ahead.

Now everyone, go ahead and get them fierce photos coming!!

Lady Kinnks – Week 5 Feedback

Ebony, Timolin and Nina – I felt like your submissions were the best this week. You provided clear instructions on my favorite style the twist-out. I also thought the “after” pictures were enjoyable within the Valentine’s spirit.

Nina: Nice touch including your sponsor products along with the needed supplies. Your dresses are sexy! I want them all! I love your positive words about inner confidence!

Your answers were thought provoking. Wanting to inspire others, especially young girls is something I take very seriously. As someone who also mentors, I feel the image you are projecting, of natural health and beauty is to be commended.  I could feel your energy in every photo. I love the attitude, the energy and the look of your hair in every single photo. The feeling is fit, youthful, vibrant and stylista, but professional and neat. Very well done and I’m looking forward to your future challenges.

I love the spirituality you represent in this challenge and the way your answer reflected this. Regardless of faith (or not) it is important for all people to learn to recognize and appreciate the beauty they were given by their creator as the perfect beauty for them. The blond hair extensions had me confused for a second, then I realized you were using them like a fur stole. Very clever! Your photographs were very well composed, showed class and sophistication – the cowboy shot was my favourite! I would like to see more of your hair in future challenges. Overall, this was an excellent challenge.

Natural Review

Natural Review

Ebony- My favorite was the photo with the rose. It was simple and beautiful. It really showcased your hair and your beauty. I would like to see more variety in facial expressions.

Munya- I enjoyed the hairdo. You look beautiful in your photos, but I did find them to be very similiar to each other.

Natasha- I thought your hairstyle was creative and beautiful. The close-up shot of your face was striking. I’d suggest trying out more poses.

Laura C.- Beautiful close-ups. I also love the creativity of the hairstyle. You gave a few different looks. Again, I’d suggest being a little bolder with poses.

Raven: You bring some edge to the competition! i like it. I like how you included a smiley picture too showing your versatility. Really well done!

Ebony: You look beautiful in each of your pictures. Very commercial, very approachable. You really followed the guidelines and delivered beautiful shots.

Timolin: I really enjoyed your pictures. The soft smile is beautiful and elegant. Your first 3 shots are my favorites. You know your best angle and know how to work it. Try to make sure your pictures are in focus next week, a couple look a little blurred.

I really like your first photo. I like your look, the colors and especially how you placed the accessory.  Even though you can’t clearly see it, your photo has an edge and I like that. Your comments on the site match your look: the feather is a must-have!
Picture 2 and 4 would probably do good in a fashion shoot. In 5 the accessory isn’t in the picture at all. You can see the accessory in picture 3 which is also a good shot. What I like about you is your variety. You got poses and many styles. It’s clear that you always seek to take your shoot to a next level which is great. I think though you have to learn to relate to the job asked of you first, then to take it to the next level.

Ebony
Congratulations on the judges’ choice! I loved your first shoot as well. I like how you played with the headband and put it around your neck as a choker. Your makeup is good and I love how you look in the camera. However, the headband that you need to sell is not in the center. It’s just an accessory in the photo. So although the picture is not bad at all, it doesn’t do the job.

Teri on Challenge 6: Doodles

Teri on Challenge 6: Doodles

Teri LaFleshI loved loved loved seeing how beautifully the Doodles came out on all you lovely ladies! All of you were stunning, and it was a joy to see your beautiful natural hair in “Doodle” styles! I liked that you showed the process, had enthusiastic descriptions, and a sort of “before” and “after”. It was very difficult to pick a favorite. You are all so talented and beautiful.

Challenge 6: Natasha: I enjoyed what you did with the doodles, especially considering you were under the weather and had a toothache. Your style had a cool “loc” look to it. I liked how you showed the different steps in the process, and I agree that next time if you make lots more, smaller doodles it will really let your beautiful texture show.

Lady Kinnks – Week 2

Munya I look at your photos and you remind me of a breath of fresh hair. You seem to exude a calm inner peace. My only qualm, is that I would have liked to see more head shots. This would’ve allowed the focus to be more on your head wrap and hair.

Raven You managed to showcase the feather headdress in a formal and casual look. This is very helpful to consumers! This week, and last I enjoy your pictures because you provide versatility, while bringing your personality to every shot.

head wrap for natural hairNatasha: I guess you were the first to upload your photos this time. Unfortunately it’s not good news. Your pictures don’t say model at all. Your shoot looks like it has been randomly done with a picture phone. Natasha, I am sorry to say, you are the 2nd one to leave the competition.

Munya: The head wrap in your 1st pictures looks amazing. Love the fabric, love the color combination. I would have loved if you had instructions on how to do this fancy wrap so I could try it myself. Having said that, I like your photos but it’s really just like. When I ask for a head wrap, I really like to see at least one tight close-up so I can almost feel the wrap and see the details. There is not really one shot that I would choose for a billboard to promote fancy fabric. You know what I mean? See Take the picture on the right.
