This trend features blonde or lighter hues on the top, with darker being featured on the bottom. There are so many coloring trends this year – The possibilities are endless. The winter months offer the perfect opportunity to refresh our hair and go for a new look without the stress of humidity. Many hair colors for Autumn/Winter 2013 are actually quite alluring, feminine and really pretty when done right.

HAIR TREND: The Bob Life

Mid-length hair is the trend of the moment. Almost every face shape & body type looks good with the bob cut. The most popular version of the bob cut, is the swing bob hairstyle. Some also call it the asymmetrical bob or graduated bob. The swing bob hairstyle has a lot of volume and swagger, while giving you the versatility and flirty vibe you desire. Add some layers and waves for texture or a side-swept bang to play up your femininity. Like any hairstyle, remember to keep those locks moisturized, super-glossy and perfectly trimmed with regular visits at your fave salon. These fab examples will give you the best ideas on nailing down this season’s popular hair trend.

Interview w/ the CEO Mekalya Silvera

Empress Luxury Hair CEO

Mekalya Silvera founded Empress Hair Company with a vision that she’s had since she was a child. She drew a picture of a female lion sitting on a throne when she was a little girl and that same piece of paper is what she used to develop her brand.  Empress Luxury Hair carries a wide assortment of hair with product names inspired by her island ancestry like “Spanish Town Curl” and “Chiney Gyal Straight.” Get to know our CEO a little better with an exclusive interview below.

  • How did you decide on the name Empress Luxury Hair? What is your inspiration behind the name?
    Well I am of Jamaican decent.  A lot of Jamaicans use [Empress] as a term of endearment. I always liked how it sounds… Plus it deals with royalty so it just seemed fitting. I want all my customers to feel like Empresses and Queens when they are wearing my products.
  • Along with retailing virgin hair, you’re also an independent hairstylist. What’s your favorite part of your job?
    I love the expression on my client’s faces when I’m done styling their hair. It’s like they feel like a brand new person. Words can’t express the satisfaction I get from that.
  • What career advice would you give to other motivated women like yourself?
    Do not stop! The road may seem rough at times but it’s worth it in the long run.  My favorite quote is “Prayerize visualize and actualize.” Basically, if you believe it you can achieve it.
  • What’s your favorite Empress Luxury Hair product?
    That’s easy: everything! I love my whole collection.
  • What are the benefits of purchasing bundles of virgin hair versus a pack of hair in the beauty supply store?
    Bundle hair is an investment. You can purchase this hair and keep reusing it. If you take care of it you can keep reusing it for 12+ months! Compare that to buying Beauty supply store hair 150.00+ purchase every time you get tired of your current style (not including install fee).
  • What are some new & exciting things happening at Empress Luxury Hair?
    We have the new Russian Roulette Line!! I am so excited because this hair is amazing! It colors great just like the Brazilian Beach Wave and Spanish Town Curl, plus it holds curls for a long time and blends well with ALL hair types!
  • Aside from ordering your products online, are there any options to purchase Empress Luxury Hair in person?
    We are located in Miami-Dade and Broward County, Florida so if you’re in the  area we can schedule a pick up!
  • And just for fun… What are a few of your favorite pastimes/hobbies?
    I really love the beach, so when I get time I get out there and meditate, pray, or just hang out with my team. My new hobby is wig making. I’m really enjoying that. I also like to read. Family is first though. I love my family.. There is nothing that beats the time we have when we get together.
