  • What is a Diva?

    A diva is a woman that knows her worth and carries herself with respect and a hint of arrogance. She is self-assured, not self-centered. She is feminine and stylish. She is confident in herself and her qualities and is not jealous of other women. She constantly strives to make her impact on the world around her.

Step Two- Start at the Top

Posted by madisonrose1 on December 25, 2008

Your hair, whether it be fine, straight, relaxed, natural, kinky or curly, is an asset. So take care of it like you would your material treasures. No you don’t have to have big hair to be a diva. However, we do occasionally like to rock the ridiculously long ponytail or the semi-big hair, pending that it doesn’t get out of control and slap your friends and family every time you turn left or right. There are levels of divahood. Typically drama divas love to rock lots of long, big hair, because they love attention. Nothing wrong with that. Doesn’t mean you have to.

So here are a few staples: Keep it healthy. Condition often! Wear a hairstyle appropriate for the shape of your face. Lucky for me, I have a versatile oval head, so I’ve rocked everything from short to long. Weaves and wigs are excellent for switching up your style without over processing your own hair. While you may have a signature style, we divas have to keep it fresh. At my previous job, everyone would always called me a chameleon. I changed my look with each season.

If you have short hair: don’t try to force it into a funky style that it doesn’t want to go into. Cut it into a short style. Sometimes the sexiest thing about a woman can be her long graceful neck. Accept the face you have and work with it.

If you have medium to long hair, keep those ends neat. Cut off split ends. They cannot be mended. Stay away from harsh gels and that Pump it Up crap! If you try combing that out it will rip your hair right out. If you must use it, wash it out, don’t comb it out. Try to use a mild holding spray like Motions, instead. When you move, the hair should move. Just like that.

If you wear it natural, in an afro, twists or locs, keep it moisturized and that kitchen lined up. Even if the actual style is wild. It should say, “Yes, take a second look. You will remember me!”
