Gorgeous Hair for a Gorgeous Girl! The Scoop on Yvonne Nelson’s Luxe Locks by Philip Eric



Yvonne Nelson's Long Locks by Philip Eric- December 2013 - BellaNaija - 021

Apart from always selecting stylish dresses, Yvonne Nelson is known for giving us full hair-gasm.

The Ghollywood sensation recently got the star treatment from UK based hair stylist Philip Eric while staying in London for a week. He was nice enough to share exclusively with BN Beauty, the scoop on styling Yvonne’s luxe wavy locks.

The Styling by Philip Eric

“Yvonne Nelson rocked a protective weave style by using a lace closure, which means none of her natural hair is exposed.

She wanted something that was versatile and easy to maintain but still looked natural, she is wearing four bundles of body wave Brazilian hair extensions which were curled into the style Yvonne Nelson was happy with.

Yvonne was really impressed with her hair and delighted with the quality of my services.”

    Biko, Yvonne should slow down on this weight loss abeg. She’s beginning to look anorexic!

      You are so rude. Yvonne Nelson is not my cup of tea, but this lady here does not look anorexic.

      Secondly, I love the curls and the hair on hair.
      To the person saying Yvonne is showing everything to the world, if you read this, you’ll see that she didn’t send this to bn. The hair stylist did. And Yvonne is a star, so therefore, she will be seen on a celebrity gossip/news website whether you like it or not.

      The hair looks nice. If this was Beyonce’s face on the hair, you people will be shouting queen bey, king bey, bey bey. Tahh!

      This hair looks good on Yvonne. The part looks natural. Actually zoomed in to see clearly and then I noticed it was indeed a lace closure in a few of the pictures. But to just a simple eye, it looks good.
      In other news, I love her lip color!

      You are right Bimby, I know this look only too well cos I’ve been there. The gaunt hollow face and saggy cheeks. The thing is weight loss can get so addictive that you won’t know when to stop and that’s the beginning of anorexia. I’m a size 8/10 but a while ago in my head I decided I was getting flabby and needed to tone up. Gym here I come. I lost so much weight I looked sick. Friends and family commented on how thin I had become and asked if I was sick or something. They were like Iwo to lara tele (You wey no get body before). In my head I was like whatever fatsos, you are just jealous because you can’t loose weight and I can. It wasn’t until my boyfriend said “girl where are shrinking to? You will shrink so tey you go disappear. I mean I like you slim but no be like this” that’s when I got a grip and I eased up on the exercises.

    December 10, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    “She wanted something that was versatile and easy to maintain but still looked natural, she is wearing four bundles of body wave Brazilian hair extensions “.
    Am I missing something or like the phrase The new normal, this is The new Natural. Even the Brazilians who own the hair, don’t look like this. So, how is this “natural” biko? Someone please explain because it looks like Black people are discovering a new meaning to the word natural. No, I am not a natural hair sister. Me and my relaxer will be best buddies for life. Yvonne always looks better with her hair pulled back in a ponytail where her beautiful facial structure is out on display. This “natural weave” just buries and overwhelms her

      I’ve never understood the “four bundles for a natural look”

    • 263Belle

      December 11, 2013 at 10:22 pm

      I agree with you. There is nothing “natural” about the look, like one of the previous posters said, even the Brazilians don’t have that much hair on their head. Just who is this look “natural” to?

    I agree with Bimby

    Yvonne looks weird in these pictures. The gaunt look and
    the makeup are to blame. Plus she looks dehydrated. Yvonne you’re a
    beautiful woman but you need to take a break from whatever it is
    you’re doing! The hair is alright….

      like nadia buari. being skinny is not for everyone. men can
      get away with looking old after weight loss (e.g matthew mensah)
      but women can’t cuz the younger and healthier u look, the

    BIMBY and her likes you must be VERY FAT and insecure. Get over yourselves. Yvonne you look beautiful, don’t mind women who can’t love themselves and appreciate others.

    why does the eyebrow look like she shaved off everythin and they had to draw a whole new one with foundation smeared around it…it just makes her look scary…and why is the hair making head line news,it looks alright,pretty basic…the tweet has more substance for headline news than the hair…… in my opinion….still got love for her sha regardless…

  23. Mizz Concerned.

    December 10, 2013 at 11:20 pm

    Wow she is starting to look old. I guess it is the excessive weight loss.

    I feel I must comment on this weight issue. I’ve been “skinny” and chubby between weight loss/gain of 20 lbs. At either point I was always happy with my appearance AS LONG AS I WAS HEALTHY. I am naturally not a slim person but I have a small frame. When I was bigger, some called me fat now that I am smaller, some say you look too skinny you’ll lose your ass etc. At the end of the day, as long as my eating habits, exercise habits and mental state are normal, I don’t care what people say about how I look. You can never please everyone. I agree that Yvonne looks smaller than usual, But what I don’t know is why she is getting that way. Just like when I see a fat person I try not to rush to the conclusion that she is doing it intentionally. Maybe she just carries her weight differently than me or is really just lazy. So, to say yvonne should “slow it down” I can’t because I don’t know if its intentional or maybe she has health issues. We women have enough things to worry about in terms of body image. Lets encourage each other like some are already doing. Stay beautiful ladies! x

    @Muse, i and Bimby likes really love our selves and appreciate Yvonne, is just that she isn’t looking good at all as she is right now. it is you that do not love your self

  28. nky

    December 11, 2013 at 1:23 pm

    4 Bundles of weave is damn too much. It looks very artifical and fake especially on her slim built frame. I recommend between 200g and 300g of hair for my clients but some of them insist on carrying a trailer load and even though i am not always impressed with the results.

  29. Leah

    December 11, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    She is usually very gorgeous, but what is going on with her face? And I agree with nky, that is
    way too much hair for her body frame. Some of you really need to relax with your over the top and emotional out burst when someone gives an opinion or critique different from yours. The names calling is just out of control. How about you guys work on articulating why you like the look as opposed to attacking someone for clearly stating why they don’t. My goodness! It’s like someone went into a market place in the middle of no where and handed a bunch of illiterates internet access.

    Looks like de problem isnt with de hair. In my opinion, its de makeup. A lil colour would ve helped plus she looks a lil too slim for her figure.

    Do you people actually know what anorexia means? Or you just type it cos it sounds exotic? How can you look at somebody and just assume that they have an eating disorder? And what is it with Nigerians and weight? Toolz is too fat. Yvonne is too thin. Nobody is ever perfect. I’d actually love to see pictures of the people who leave these hateful comments. Please worry about your own lives and leave other people to “worry” about their weight. So damn rude!

    Her hair’s lovely, full and bouncy.. The eyebrows are too high and unnatural. unfortunately gives her a constant look of being surprised.

    I belie women should wear the hairstyles they feel most comfortable in period.
