- From her controversial and brave lyrical suggestion-shout-outs at Beyonce and Ciara, to her amazingly humble appearance during the 5th Annual DKMS Linked Against Leukemia Gala in New York City on April 28th, 2011; Keri Hilson is starting trends all over the charts. She is setting an example for how to take over her own destiny to young women who look up to her in the African American community. And her hair style color is making the statement that she demands respect from other nationalities as well. It was once thought that African women didn’t get black hair styles like the A-Line; but rather a weave for black hair was the only outrageous claim. Hilson’s A-Line short hairstyle is certainly getting attention! Just below are three easy steps for cutting your own hair into a similar A-Line pattern. So … get out your scissors and read on!
For a Hilson A-Line haircut, follow these 3 easy steps:
1. Wet hair thoroughly and part hair down the middle, combing wet strands straight from part to ends. Comb bangs straight in front of face.
2. Incline the lines of hair downward to jawlines and cut in a straight sloping direction. Go steep or subtle, the choice is yours!
3. Lastly, cut the bangs from brow to brow straight across the forehead.
The DKMS is the world’s largest bone marrow donor center stationed in New York. The DKMS is well known for hosting other celebrities, such as Rhianna, Mary J. Blige, and Pharrell Williams.
