Lady Kinnks – Week 2

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.

I don’t think what you did was quite how the styling was supposed to be. It was a good effort though. I did not like the psychedelic backgrounds that you added to some of your pictures.

Munya

Good job changing up your poses this week. I liked the variation. I also thought the different headwraps were beautiful!  You have that technique down. However, what that technique is, I can’t tell from your pictures. I think maybe you should’ve used a different color fabric and also better lighting with closer shots so we could see what was going on.

Munya: Your hair looks amazing this week. Your shots lacked variety for me, they all show a similar three quarter profile. In next week’s shoot, if you do a three quarter profile again, try doing it without tilting your head up or down. it will look more flattering, more “model-y” and less amateur.

Ebony: I just love you! BUT, this week your pictures could have been more to the brief. Whereas the other girls shot more with the products and incorporated them, you chose not to. Although you look great in all your shots, none of them look like a “campaign”!

Natural hairstylesMuyenga: The camera loves you. It looks easy for you. I think picture 4 can be used in a campaign but having said that I think you don’t show enough variety in your shots.

Ebony: I know you didn’t receive the products but I don’t miss them at all: great shoot! Love the first picturrrreeeee. I want o use it in my campaign. I like your eyes, you make big hair more than beautiful, desirable. I think you are really good at head shots because every shot your eyes look different in the camera. And that is pretty hard. Good job!

Timolin: Nice pictures. I have seen better of you. But still very good. I can’t quite pinpoint what it is that your shots are lacking this week.

Nina: I only like your first picture. You look like you’re trying too hard to pose in all your other shots and it look unnatural and amateur. Less is more!

Ebony: AMAZING! You really stepped up to another level. You have something very special and very regal about you in these shots! You exude power: HOT!!

Munya Magande – First off, let me say that I love your locs! I like the fact that you included the products in your pictures. Because you have locs, your look compliments the brand and message of the company.

Ebony Clark – Two words for your photos, Beautiful and Free! Pictures #1 and #3 really go with the vibe and theme of Jamaica Mango and Lime. They have a breezy, island feel to them.  Picture #5 gives a great example of the functionality of the product. The flat-twist updo looks awesome!

Nina Ellis-Hervey – You’re so creative! Not only did you include the products in your pictures, but you had fun with them. I love the fact that you mention that the products aren’t just for women, but also for men. Great job!

wow! it’s been a great 8 weeks! everyone has done so well. it’s been a great 8 weeks and I’ve really enjoyed the task of judging Miss Napptuality.

 

my favorite image this week came from Timolin, the whole series of images have were amazing however this picture really stood out, the colors and the fashion forward hair style are great. over the last 8 weeks timolin’s pictures have been consistent in quality but also have varied in style, i always look forward to seeing what she will bring next.

ebony i love the oriental feel to this shot! it’s so on trend and the colors are stunning, this updo is gorgeous and so detailed, your picture’s are always consistent and creative. you definitely have the most commercial look and i think you could model and i think you should try whatever the outcome of this competition.

nina, you have come on the biggest journey! your photo shoots improve week after week. your picture quality has also improved. this week as always your pictures are vibrant and show your personality and i love your take on the updo!

Munya,i really like your updo, your locks look really good and i love how fresh your pictures look this week!  i really wish we had a few more weeks to see were your pictures could have gone. i feel as thought you have been a slow burning and you are now coming into your stride.
