was first up to be styled. Ashante' whisked away at her hair with shears,
and cut it into soft layers with cheek skimming bangs. He
snipped pieces around her cheeks, eyes, and neckline for a jagged effect.
Afterwards, an assistant blew out and flat ironed her hair. Alia was
ecstatic! " I
love it!" she exclaimed. Next up was Akissa. The goal was to keep
her hair long, but add volume and highlights. Strands of extension hair
boosted the fullness and added a sexy glowing effect to Akissa's bangs.
Long layers were cut into her hair for movement.
large curling iron was used to bend her hair into flips and soft waves.
"You look gorgeous Akissa!" shouted Alia. "This is so
hot!" says Akissa with excitement.
For Lalisha, highlights were also added to her hair
with extensions. "This is great because you don't have to color
your own hair," she says. "I love to change my looks very
often, especially my highlight color. One day you'll see me with reddish
highlights, and the next month it's a golden shade. "It's fun to
change up your look!", states the star. Ashante' extended her length
and added golden tips to the ends of her hair. A few layers were sliced
into her hair and an assistant set Lalisha's hair on rollers. After
drying, the rollers were removed and her tresses were brushed out; leaving
loose waves and curls. "Working with Allure is amazing because
they can work many different looks!" states Ashante'.

Close with Allure
It all began in high school for the ladies of Allure
(formerly a quartet with member Linnie) The girls would perform at high
school and talent events and mesmerize crowds with their vocal talents.
Soon after, word got out about the girls who attracted the likes of Mariah
Carey, who immediately signed them to her Crave Record Label. Allure soon
popped up all over the world in magazines, TV, and on every radio station.
What made them a success was that unlike many other music artists in the
media, these divas can perform live and can really, really, sing
in person. No
gimmicks, no studio tricks, just pure vocal talent.
Afterwards, Allure signed to MCA Records to release more hits,
then later Ron Artests' Truwarier Records. Throughout their musical journey,
the girls have always remained close as friends through the years to support
each other. One of the things that has kept the girls together is their
motto that God is in Charge.
