Bold & Fierce: Fifty Shades of Teyana Taylor That Are #Goals

When has Teyana Taylor not given us body and fashion goals? Every time you see her she is slaying!

Whether she’s in jeans and a basic tee with her hair slicked back or in a designer gown with effortless curls, she knows how to get and keep attention on her. The crazy thing is her style never seems manufactured nor forced.

She truly rocks her looks her way and is never afraid to push boundaries in music, acting, dancing, fashion, or her hairstyle choices. I love women who create their lane and do it unapologetically!

Teyana, in my opinion, is a style icon, and here are my 50 reasons why.

Teyana Taylor- Blonde Hair

Ode To Janet Jackson

Teyana’s Janet Jackson inspired bob is everything! It’s easy and effortless.

This look is re-creatable with two Brazilian straight bundles and closure, or you can purchase a wig and get it styled just like this one! To get those edges on point make sure you use the right products, so your version looks as good as hers.

If you need to step by step tutorial on how to achieve this look, one of my favorite YouTubers Malibu dollface recreated this exact look on his YouTube channel.

Caramel Brown

This caramel brown unit Teyana is rocking is a great balance of brown and gold; it compliments her skin tone amazingly. My favorite part of this unit is the fact that her hair almost looks wet. We too can rock this sleek wet look with just a few items.

What You Need:

Styling is super simple! Mist your hair with water until it is damp and apply a generous amount of mousse. Next, Use your fingers to finger comb and break up the strands. Simultaneously scrunch the hair to get even more definition.

Once you’ve achieved the desired look, let your hair air dry before manipulating it any further.

Teyana’s stylist gave us our whole life with this bomb color and sleek cut. Bob is one style that’s not bound by a season and is achievable for us DIY gals. There also isn’t very much scissor work involved so have no fear!

Follow these steps, and you too can rock a smooth, sleek blunt cut bob any time of the year.

What You Need:

Salon Pro 30 Second hair glue

Two wig caps

White eyeliner pencil


Extensions (of course)


Step #1

Part of a section of hair in through the center of your head. Make sure the part is clean and wide enough to cover the weft that will surround it.

Step #2

Braid that section to the front. Then, braid your hair down along the perimeter of your forehead and down his back. Connect them, so there are no loose ends.

Step #3

Apply both wig caps.

Step #4

Outline your part with the white eyeliner pencil.

Step #5

Begin gluing your extensions in from back to front. Then, glue the final extension along the white outline.

Step #6

Slowly cut through the top cap, around the part. Then, slowly cut through the second cap.

Step #7

Unbraid of your leave out and lightly spray it with a heat protectant.

Step #8

Use a flat iron to straighten your leave out. Use the chase method for a silkier finish.

Step #9

Grab your sharp scissors and determine what length you would like your bob. I suggest leaving a little length for adjustments. Hold your scissors horizontally at all times when cutting and work slowly around your head.

Step #10

Straighten the rest of your hair.

Teyana was on her Fifth Element tip with this one! The easiest way to achieve this look is with 12 inches of loose wave extensions and closure. The color process for this style is surprisingly easy too.

What You Need:

Use the bleaching mixture to bleach the extensions from route to tip quickly so that there is no drastic color gradient; this will help you get an even ginger color all over.

When it comes to the roots, bleach them last, so they’re a bit darker than the length of the extension. This technique will give the illusion of root realness, so not even your haters could clock this DIY color.

Here’s another version of the look above but in a darker color.

Learn how to add body curls to your extensions within curls, by following my instructions below:

Step #1

Apply your favorite heat protectant all over.

Step #2

Take a 1”x2” section of hair and comb to detangle

Step #3

If you aren't a pro with a flat iron, use a 1-inch curling iron to curl each section. As you curl the section, catch it and let it rest in your hand to cool. This will help the curl maintain its shape and last longer throughout the day without product.

Step #4

Once the curl is cool enough to touch pickup the stacked coils

Step #5

Use your alligator clip to secure the body of the coil to its base

Step #6

Style your hair with a wide-tooth comb for big voluminous hair or a paddle brush for sexy smooth waves.

Faux Locs

Can we say “yes” to these locs? Locs are not only a great protective style, but they also make vacationing a breeze.

Locs are low maintenance, and there are tons of different ways to install and style them. Installing them the traditional way with kinky crochet hair is gorgeous but exceptionally time-consuming.

The quickest way to install locs on yourself is by buying them and crochet them in. BeautyCanBraid has an awesome tutorial dedicated to installing pre-made locs, check her out.

    Bone straight inches are a red carpet classic, and Teyana does it very well.

    This look would look great with Malaysian straight bundles and closure. If you want to achieve this look, using textured hair, try using the chase method to straighten it to perfection.

    Take a 1-inch section of hair and detangle

    Step #2

    Spray with a heat protectant.

    Step #3

    Place your flat iron at the base and your comb beneath it.

    Step #4

    Allow the comb to separate the hair and the flatiron to follow.

    Step #5

    Let the section cool before combing or running your fingers through it.

    Luscious Curls

    It’s almost that time of year for big curly hair and beaches. With all the chlorine, salt water, and sand that your curly hair will come into contact with, you’ll need to know the basic maintenance for it.

    Tips for maintaining curly hair:

    • Don’t style while completely dry.
    • Refrain from using narrow-toothed combs.
    • Moisture is key! Deep conditioning and moisture-rich serums will keep your hair shiny and bouncy.
    • Comb from the tips to the root.
    • Twist or braid hair into sections at night and wear a satin scarf or bonnet.
    • Apply a conditioner to your curls before swimming.

    Blonde Bombshell

    Russian blonde extensions were the wave of last year, and it doesn't look like this trend is losing any steam.

    Teyanna rocked hers in its natural state without colored roots, and it was such a vibe. This bold hair matched with her 90’s swagger is just proof that Teyanna can pull off anything. If you’re interested in trying a bold light hair color or even blondes consider using a toner.

    Toning is an important step in any coloring process because it neutralizes brassy yellow and orange tones on bleached hair. It usually turns a purple-blue tint when it has processed. When applied to bleached hair, it takes it to more of an ashy, dusty, or platinum color. That means a much more natural-looking hair tone.

    No matter your complexion you can always use a toner to create the perfect balance in color.
