black hair

a person with black hair, I would have to say dark reds like auburn, burgundy, and other dark red colors are popular choices and they will not clash with a business persona, however if you want to get a snazzy new look for a younger and more hip person, you may try highlighting with very dark purples and very dark blues, these give you a cool flare and dependant on how dark they are will be very mild in your hair and can be As hidden with up-swept hairdoes.

Elegant Hairstyles And Black Hair Updos

Need some ideas for black hair updos?
You can mix and match lots of style combinations to come up with the perfect updo that will work with your face shape, outfit and overall look.
If you have a prom, wedding or some other special occasion coming up take a look at some of these celebrity styles and you'll get an idea of the possibilities your updo can have!

Rihanna's wavy blonde streaked ponytail looks fun yet elegant. She wears it high so it has a youthful flair and also spices it up with honey blonde streaks. A layered fringe takes this style from bubble gum cute to fit for a red carpet diva.

This updo features some height at the front, silky smooth edges and a ponytail with loose curls. It's a beautiful look that would be great for a high school prom....simple and sophisticated!

Nothing says class like high chignon (bun) black hair updos like the one Beyonce is wearing in this picture. Her hair is carefully scooped into a high ponytail and the loose ends are arranged into a fabulous design. Add a flower or a jeweled clip and this would be a lovely wedding hair style.

Check out this interesting hairstyle worn by Alicia Keys. Who ever thought a partially braided updo would be this beautiful. By combining cornrows with a high ponytail featuring cascading waves, this style definitely gets high points for fun and originality.
Once again Beyonce shows off what a style chameleon she is with this low chignon. This elegant hair design is set off my blonde streaks throughout her hair, a side part and side swept bangs. This style is a timeless classic for brides and bridesmaids alike!

Janet Jackson is a diva that stays true to her natural wavy texture. In this picture she's sporting a messy girl next door updo that's put together but relaxed at the same time. This style would look great done on kinky natural hair with an afro puff ponytail.

Black is back! Black hair made their comeback on the catwalks this year. Symbol of exoticism and mystery, the raven-haired give strength and character to any face. Provided well hydrated. Here are our tips to display a bright black hair … Warning: femme fatale!
Characteristics of black hair:

Skull of Books

Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre has finally found a use for all those obsolete computing books that have been collecting dust worldwide. His newest work-in-progress is called Incarnate (Three Degrees of Certainty II) and as you can see, it is a near perfect rendition of a human skull popping out from a stack of outdated computer manuals.

New Photos of Titanic 100 Years Later

As the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic approaches, National Geographic Magazine is unveiling, in their April 2012 edition, new photographs that provide a greater understanding of what happened on that fateful day, April 15, 1912.

Ethereal views of Titanic's bow (modeled by Stefan Fichtel) offer a comprehensiveness of detail never seen before.

Two of Titanic's engines lie exposed in a gaping cross section of the stern. Draped in "rusticles" - orange stalactites created by iron-eating bacteria - these massive structures, four stories tall, once powered the largest moving man-made object on Earth.

The view from above.

As the starboard profile shows, the Titanic buckled as it plowed nose-first into the seabed, leaving the forward hull buried deep in mud--obscuring, possibly forever, the mortal wounds inflicted by the iceberg.

Don't Lose The Tender Touch

Don't lose the tender touch,
My friend.

I know life is unfair
I know you've known despair.
Life hurts and haunts and
Kills your joy
It messes and snatches
Your favorite toy
But like a stringent parent
It only means to teach
Lessons in love and truth
In bliss beyond our reach
You have it in you
It'll always remain
Don't lose the tender touch, 
My friend.

I remember the day
When you'd relentlessly pray
That when you woke up
Your love had come back
You opened your eyes up to pain
Reality seemed like a devilish trap
Not trap, 'twas but a test
With no wrong or right.
Go ahead, don't fear
Win the test of life
Love flows through you
It has no end
Don't lose the tender touch
My friend

Each failure, each step taken wrong
Is His attempt, in making us strong
Remove the facade
Let love touch you
The world is waiting
Kiss the brightest hue
I know a door has closed forever
But don't you hear the knocks on others?
Flash your brightest smile, 
Wear your heart on your sleeve
It won't break, don't fear
To many out there, you're precious and dear
Feel, and breathe and
Preserve the essence
And never ever lose the tender touch, 
My friend.

To all those who feel life has been unfair, this is my plea. Stop for a second, and count your blessings. You will never know how fortunate you are till you see another one survives on less than half of what you have been bestowed with. Gandhiji's Talisman has a relevance in our world. Consider yourself fortunate if you can touch someone's life and make him smile. Extend the horizon's of your life to accommodate those many people who love you, who want to be loved by you. Flash your warmest smile to them, and give them an unexpected hug, a careful kiss. Make them believe you'll be there even if you fear otherwise. Don't cage all that love inside you. Let it flow around, let it touch lives. If you've been hurt, you would know how feels. Being hurt should empower you for protecting someone else from hurt, for applying balm an someone else's wounds. Live and love. Its only one life which all get, dear friend.

Love's Song Is Love

I did not just leap into your arms,
I leapt into a life anew.
You banished darkness with your charms,
But smiles I met were meek and few.
 I knew you'd save me from all harm,
My share of bliss, nevertheless, stands due.

I'm no one to give you chances,
You're none to give me pain.
Love's song is love,
Not a melody for loss or gain.

You think you can read my mind,
I still have a story to say.
Your love has been precious and kind,
In a unique, incomprehensible way.
I feel lost even when I rewind,
Why? May be you'll know someday!

I'm no one to give you chances,
You won't find my tears in rain.
Love's song is love,
Not a melody of unspoken pain.

Holding your hand was a brave risk,
It beckoned disbelief to my door.
You were perfect and pure and majestic,
But tell me, was I an eye-sore?
You built our home brick by brick,
I lent it soul- Did you ignore?

I'm no one to give you chances,
You're none to cage my soul.
Love's song is love,
Not a melody of broken hopes.

A girl's heart likes to follow,
Please lead, but don't walk ahead.
Her voice is soft and mellow,
Try hearing what can't be said.
Care, caress, pamper and let her know,
Make love with words, not just on bed.
Under your shadow, she seeks to glow,
Save her feelings from an imminent death.

I'm no one to give you chances,
You're none to shun me away.
Love's song is love,
Not a melody gone astray.
