From the California desert to Randall's Island in NYC and our very own ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans, this year is stacked with a slew of performances that you may or may not plan to see in person. Festival settings are feeding ground for culturally insensitive fashion and beauty (headdresses, face paint, etc.), so make sure you don't get caught in the fray.
Black women have long been trendsetters and the latest accessory crazy is perfect for any and every texture. Hair rings, available in an assortment of designs and finishes, are basically jewelry for the tresses that can be easily worn on a bevy of styles.
