One of the brands I’ve used for years {when I had relaxed hair and now as a natural} has been Motions. It’s affordable and can be purchased practically anywhere. And seriously, there’s a line and product for all textures.

If there’s one thing I love, it’s an effortless go-to hairstyle I can whip up when I’m running late. I always seem to find myself with just 10 or 15 minutes to do something to my hair. Stylist to the stars and Motions global ambassador, Ursula Stephen, knows women are on the go and breaks down the looks we can all achieve on a dime and on limited time.

5 Year Blogiversary-looking-fly-on-a-dime

5 years. Yes. Five. Whole. Years. I can’t believe Looking Fly on a Dime® celebrates its fifth blogiversary today. I started the site after being laid off from my job at a fashion magazine and I had no idea this little website would lead to repeat appearances on the Today Show, Nate Berkus Show and a correspondent gig for a local NYC station.
It’s been a great five years and I’m excited for what’s to come. Besides my thrift shopping ebook that’s being released next week, you’ll see some new and revamped “old” features coming to the site.
