Ilana Glazer, The Curly Hair Inspiration We Didn’t Know We Needed

Have you seen Broad City yet? No? Well you’re certainly missing out on a whirlwind of nonsensical BFF adventures, pure NYC based hilarity, and the slacker wit of curly haired “kween” Ilana Glazer.

Often thought of as the female version of Workoholics, Broad City can easily be considered win for Comedy Central as proved by the success of its first two seasons. The sitcom is praised for for countless highlights: the strength and authenticity of the female protagonists’ friendship, open discussions of the often shied away topic of female sexuality, and of course, the girls’ fondness of recreational marijuana. However, the zenith of the show for girls who tag their Instagram selfies with #curlyhairdontcare just might be the unspoken language of Ilana’s glorious short curly ‘do.

The self-proclaimed Jewess never fails to rock her curls along with her matching unrestrained, down-to-earth attitude– the kind of personality that makes for truly enjoyable television. It’s really no wonder she resonates so much with today’s young adult audience when Ilana’s the type of friend everyone wishes they had.

These broads.

Glazer also compliments her wild locks with a bold sense of style, complete with dark lipstick, big earrings, see through tops, tuxedos, zany socks, crop tops, short shorts… and of course, her now iconic LF lattice bra that makes regular appearances on the show.

Ilana exudes this fresh, unique confidence that’s enviable and it’s exactly the kind of female protagonist we need to see more of on television (totally not forgetting her other half Abbi, who’s wonderfully unconventional in her own way!)

It can be said hair informs a girl’s character. When looking at Ilana and her admirable tresses, that statement couldn’t be any truer.

This doesn’t even cover it.

There is limited conversation about hair and beauty when it comes to women of diverse backgrounds. The beauty industry is at its core artistic, but everyone has a different interpretation as to what hair and beauty should be. It is challenging for all professionals when the multicultural beauty arena is underdeveloped.

LeMetric Real World Hair & Beauty wants to change that.

We are expanding our network to include top-rated, diverse, and creative hair and beauty experts whose work exemplifies exactly what LeMetric has championed for over 10 years now: the power of the multicultural woman and the universal language of hair.

Before & After (June Blowout Sale)

before makeover

Before

This gorgeous young woman came into our LeMetric Beauty Studio after hearing about our June Blowout Sale ($50 wash/deep-condition/cut/blow out).  She added a red dye job along with a press to her blowout combo and left our Beauty Studio looking fabulous.  Her hair was cut and styled, looking much healthier without the split ends and giving her hair more room for growth/length!  Egypt Buck, our in-house and celebrity hairstylist, worked his magic to create the look below.

The Best Hair Extensions And Pieces For Every Texture Of Curly, Wavy, Kinky, and Straight Hair!

The biggest issue with having curly hair and wanting to add a bit more length/volume to it is finding extensions that match my exact curl pattern.

I know, I know…the whole point of going natural is to wear all of your own hair, but sometimes a girl just wants some variation to her look!  Can I live?  I know you fellow curly girls that want to add a piece or two have probably dealt with this as well. photo 17 photo 20

Well, no need to worry I’ve finally found a solution!!!

LeMetric Real World Hair & Beauty are certified experts when it comes to making custom hair pieces/extensions that have every variation of hair texture available, along with a multitude of colors (if you want to get really funky or maintain your conservative look).

LeMetric made me an extension piece that matched my curl pattern/color from scratch with their bulk human hair, tightened the curl pattern with their sticks and boiled it so the pattern stays permanent (even after washing it multiple times), added a thin weft at the top of it, and then put the clips on it so I can clip it on or off as I please!  How convenient :)

…I’ve always strayed from permanent commitment with my hair so the clip-in extensions are amazing for me!

Did I mention that I stray from permanent commitment with my hair?  Because I seriously do, one minute I want it curly and then the next, I want it straight.  So let’s get into their straight extensions because they give me life.  As soon as I saw them I just wanted to run my fingers through them.

Pictures don’t do the quality of this hair any justice, but you would be surprised by how well all of this hair blends with your natural textures.  Take a look at LeMetric Model, Genny Miliano, with her natural hair blown out and then with the extensions added into the blown out side of her hair!  It looks like it’s all hers!

The beauty of hair extensions is that you can use it to add length, texture, volume, and color without having to make any drastic commitments to wearing hair pieces.

They use these sticks below to set and boil the hair in order for any/every definitive curl pattern to remain in the custom hair pieces…so you can wash them and dry them as much as you want and it will go right back to that same curl pattern.

Refreshments will be served. Feel free to bring any guests you think could use the #hairapy :)

There will also be opportunities to get free makeovers and Youtube coverage as will aim to create a YouTube series about this very topic!
