Glitz Glamour Prom


It’s Prom Time! You have probably been daydreaming about this night only for the entire school year! The staff of Amara Sapphire understands just how important prom is to teenagers. Prom can be a magical evening, and it has been rightly described as a rite of passage that no young woman or man should miss.

Amara Sapphire is dedicated towards emitting some level of confidence amongst girls by helping and encouraging them to discover their beauty while becoming bold, beautiful, and confident, to back our talk up we launched our enviable and remarkable Glitz Glamour prom giveaway event.

During this upcoming prom giveaway season, one lucky couple had the chance to win a prom dress and shoes, makeup application, three (3) bundles of virgin hair, hair installation and style, one tuxedo rental w/shoes, and a limousine ride to prom. To enter couples had to write an essay describing a problem they would like to solve and their plans post graduation.

Our winner Sakira did just that! Sakira’s winning essay consists of wanting to solve the problem of struggling being a single parent. She expresses how hard it is to make ends meet and also make her dreams come true. She wants to help single parents do stuff they thought they would not be able to d; like finishing school or having their dream job. After high school she plans on going to Culinary Arts and getting her Bachelor’s in Art. After college she wants to get her own restaurants and co-own other businesses with her mom and friends. Sakira wants to give people the hope that her mom, big sister, best friends, her daughter, and staff at Excel Academy of South Shore has given her.

Sakira Stribling and her date Michael Morton had the privilege of enjoying a night of fun, goodies and excitement that they will always cherish and remember for a long time.

“Just as Sakira and Michael were excited about prom, we were absolutely delighted about this community giveback initiative. We partied, laughed, and enjoy having our Glam squad SLAYY Sakira for her prom. We’re active in the community. We don’t just invest in hair; we invest in the success of our communities. We want everyone girl to know that they are BOLD, BEAUTIFUL, & CONFIDENT!

wash weave

It’s no secret that I wear weaves! I don’t even fake it like it’s mine. I LOVE my weaves! I get ask questions all the time about how I keep my weave looking sleek and flawless all the time.


Here’s my little secret…. I WASH MY WEAVE.


Okay, I get it there’s girls who say they never wash their weave. UMmmm what! No, I don’t get it. I don’t understand. I literally just had a full debate with this girl about her not washing her weave. Hence, the reason why I’m blogging lol. You wash your natural hair so why wouldn’t you wash your weave. You spend good money on your hair to look flawless soo why wouldn’t you take care of your hair???? I’m not a fan of scratching my head all day long or having that oily bad weave smell. Nope I can’t do it so guess what I wash my weave.


Here’s some steps to follow to help you ladies wash your virgin hair extensions:


  1. Divide your hair into sections and detangle using a paddle brush.
  2. Wet your hair with warm water in a downward motion.
  3. Apply a small amount of moisturizing shampoo in a downward motion to remove any excess oils and dirt from your hair. I personally recommend using Ogx renewing argan oil of morocco shampoo. This shampoo instantly penetrates the hair shaft restoring shine and softness while strengthening and creating soft, seductive, silky perfection.
  4. Rinse shampoo out. You may need to rinse a couple times to remove all shampoo. Water should be clear once all shampoo is removed.
  5. Now its time to condition your hair. CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION your hair with a good conditioner. I would recommend using Ogx renewing argan oil of morocco conditioner. Leave conditioner in for about 15 minutes and rinse. Rinse well to avoid product build up
  6. Finally air dry your hair or sit under a dryer. (I personally prefer to air dry my hair)

That’s it! It’s that simple! I try to wash my Amara Sapphire bundles every two weeks at the very longest 3 weeks.

Brazilian Vs. Peruvian Virgin Hair

Peruvian Vs. Brazilian Virgin hair

Stuck between buying Brazilian or Peruvian virgin hair?? Ever wonder what’s the difference?? Me too so I researched until I was satisfied and knew exactly which hair was best for me. Come along with me to find out exactly what all this hair stuff is about…


Brazilian hair is thick, soft, and naturally wavy. This hair is known for its versatility. It is very soft, luxurious, and has a lot of volume. It is of thicker texture that blends extremely well with any texture hair. However due to the thickness and volume Brazilian virgin hair resembles closely to African Americans. Amara Sapphire Brazilian hair is extremely easy to maintain. This hair holds curls very well. Brazilian virgin hair can be colored, wet, curled, or straightened and will revert back to its natural wave pattern.


Peruvian hair is thick, straight, or slightly wavy. It is similar to Brazilian hair. However, it is typically thicker and coarser in texture. Peruvian hair is extremely bouncy and provides more volume while having the ability to look natural because the hair is lightweight. It is used most by clients with fine or thin hair. Peruvian hair blends well with Caucasians hair textures or women with relaxed hair. It can be colored, straightened, curled, or wet and will revert back to it natural wave. Because of its natural fullness and body, you can achieve a full installation using fewer bundles. Saving a little extra $$$!


Brazilian and Peruvian hair are both great quality virgin hair and are simply BEAUTIFUL. However, it is important to note when looking to get a Glamour look or celebrity inspired hairstyles factors such as natural hair texture, color, installation, and styling can make an incredible difference in how beautiful you look with virgin hair extensions.

Wand Curl V. Curling Iron

blog post2

We get it every girl is different, right? Well, what kind of girl are you?? There’s a friendly competition going on between the team members of Amara Sapphire! What the heck is the difference between using a curling wand and a curling iron? If you’re anything like me you’re probably insanely confused. Is there a difference between them? When should I use them? Well, if you’re thinking these thoughts like me let’s explore together to see what’s really going on!

Your curls are important: from a typical daytime look, to a romantic date night, or casual day around town, your curls can add a ton of bounce to your style. Using the curling wand versus a curling iron could give you a different look.

The curling wand produces polished hair that spirals downward. Wand curls are more of a natural wave. It’s meant to create more of a natural looking wave to mirror your natural hair texture. You can create everything from tight curls to voluminous waves. To create voluminous waves just simply separate your curls by running your fingers through your hair.


The curling iron produces more of a flatter looking curl. The waves created from using the curling iron are polished and bouncy. If you naturally have really frizzy or textured hair using the curling iron will help create smooth and frizz-free curls.


Which look do you prefer? Comment below! These looks can be achieve using Amara Sapphire Luxurious Extensions.
