Should kids be wearing extentions & WEAVES?
At the tender age of 14, Skai Jackson has become somewhat of a teen style icon and when it comes to her hair, it's no different.
Over the years, Skai has sported sleek straight hair, fabulous twist outs and everything in between. I think it's great that she's setting an example for her young audience and showing that you can be the it-girl with natural, curly hair if you want.
Skai has sprinkled many a red carpet with her teen Black Girl Magic, but recently, I've noticed a bit of a trend with her - the updo!
It seems Skai's head was made to be adorned by an updo (although, I can’t think of any style that would look out of place on this beaut).
My personal favourites are the her braided updos. Not only can braids be a fantastic protective style, but they can also be fun and glamorous! Clearly, Skai’s styling team know this too.
Here are some of my favourite Skai hair styles.
1. Power Rangers premier
This uber glam style is definitely giving us some Janelle Monae vibes. Attention to detail is everything and constructing quiff from large braid is a fantastic way to add some va va voom to the hair do.
2. Beauty and the Beast premier
This style is great, especially for a the Beauty and Beast premier. Nothing says classic beauty like a clean lines and simplicity.
3. Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards
Skai shows us witth this updo that bun styles don't have to be boring! Adding a few rope twists to this style gives it a boost and takes it from basic bun to red carpet hair.
Much credit to Skai's glam squad for managing to continuously deliver current, glamorous and age appropriate styles for the princess. Credit to her parents for her gorgeous face, and credit to her for being her!
