Beauty & The Beat: Keyshia Cole

Keyshia Cole
Keyshia Cole is one of the hardest-working women in show business! She rode the wave of fame straight to the top of the charts with her first two full-length albums and is set to do it again with her latest release, Calling All Hearts. She is currently tearing up the music world once again with a string of hit singles, and with her latest project, she unveiled this fabulous new look which inspires us all!

This talented singer never ceases to rock the world with her many stylish hairdos, and she wows us yet again with her auburn coiffure. On our pages, Keyshia is styling it in two gorgeous looks. She mixes it up with wondrous waves with her hair swept up into a pristine updo. In the other, she rocks a high fashion, sleek bob.  Whatever style she chooses, her hair is always healthy looking and radiantly shiny, and deep conditioning is the key, especially when sporting color-treated hair like Keyshia’s.

Experiment with Keyshia’s wavy updo by creating spiral curls throughout the hair with a curling iron or adding in extensions in a body wave hair texture. This flirty, playful look exudes sophistication. Updos are not only elegant, but they can make a stylish statement when coupled with a sassy ensemble like Keyshia’s. Her black sequined skirt is a must-have wardrobe piece for the spring season. Pair it with a neutral toned blouse like Keyshia’s to keep the skirt the focal piece of the outfit.


To achieve this hair look, pull all of the hair in the nape up into a bun after the entire head of hair is styled in spirals. Keep a few tendrils loose and free and then secure the bun with hairpins for Keyshia’s fun look.

Keyshia’s second look is city chic and ultra glamorous. It stands out even more with hot and popping makeup and a gorgeous halter top. This style features medium layers and a slightly feathered effect throughout the hair. It’s wispy and soft, with lots of body and volume. The look is parted at the center and silkened with a flat iron to get the hair extra silky and fine. It is then slightly beveled backward at the sides to create the softly feathered look around the frame of the face.

For this exclusive photo shoot, Keyshia’s hair is styled by hairstylist Deron Cole. He uses an exceptional array of products to create Keyshia’s looks, including Design Essentials, Shaper by Sebastian, Lacquer by Smooth and Silk and Aveda Shampoo. To create Keyshia’s pretty curls, Deron styles it up with a Vonte curling iron for exquisite curls, and added extensions for fullness and body.

All in all, Keyshia Cole is the total package. From head to toe, this R&B diva shines! Her new album, Calling All Hearts, is in stores now.
