The Big Chop: Chrisette Michele May 3, 2010

Posted by Karima in : Uncategorized , add a comment

Soul singer and song-writer, Chrisette Michele, looks absolutely stunning. Her skin is so soft-looking, and clear. (Make-up or no make-up, she is one hell of a beautiful woman). And her hair speaks for itself. The way her eyes pop…I’m just speechless.

And her reason…

“I wanted to make short and nappy hair fashionable, and let the industry know that there is nothing wrong with the texture we were born with. I plan to grow it out to the big beautiful nappy hair that I have,” says Michele.

NEU-tral Beauty 101 March 4, 2010

There are so many women nowadays who are so afraid of wearing make-up. And then there are women who are completely obsessed with beauty products.

It seems like everyone wants to look like that celebrity, or their celebrity look-a-like.  And then end  up losing sight of what they really look like.
