My natural hair crush didn’t officially win Strictly Come Dancing but in my eyes she (and her natural hair) was the true winner 🙂
I’m so happy that Natalie Gumede and her partner Artem Chigvinstev have made it to the Strictly Come Dancing final. Yay! And she did it all with her gorgeous natural hair. Last week Natalie received a perfect score of 40 from the judges for her sexy salsa, which she danced to Michael Jackson’s ‘Wanna be… Continue reading Natalie Gumede & Artem’s Salsa and Argentine Tango
My Natalie Gumede obsession is alive and well. In last Saturday’s episode of Strictly Come Dancing Natalie and Artem danced a Charleston to Will.i.am’s ‘Bang Bang’. I wasn’t sure if the song would work but it does. It’s very addictive! The live singers sang it brilliantly and deserve much credit. It was also good to… Continue reading Natalie Gumede & Artem’s Charleston to ‘Bang Bang’
Natalie Gumede is still riding high on Strictly Come Dancing. Last week she danced a beautiful Viennese Waltz and scored two nines and two Tens! Amazing! I’m pleased to see that her natural hair is looking as gorgeous as usual. The show’s stylist put in what looks like green spray into the jumbo braids at… Continue reading Natalie Gumede and Artem’s Viennese Waltz
The Beautiful Natalie Gumede is still on Strictly Come Dancing rocking her luscious natural hair. I’m so happy that she hasn’t let the Strictly hairdressers straighten her hair. We all know what some hairdressers are like when they see natural Afro hair. This week Natalie and Artem danced a Samba to ‘Bambaleo’ by the Gypsy… Continue reading Natalie Gumede & Artem Chigvinstev’s Samba
Whilst I’m still on a Natalie Gumede tip I thought I’d post her cha cha cha routine. This was Natalie’s first dance (we’re in week 4) and in my opinion her best so far. They danced to ‘Rasputin’ by Boney M who also rocked natural hair styles back in the day. I love this performance… Continue reading Strictly Come Dancing UK – Natalie and Artem’s Cha Cha Cha
I’m a BIG fan of the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing show (AKA Dancing with the Stars in the USA); I have watched every episode since the show started. Sad I know. So I was delighted when UK actress Natalie Gumede wore her gorgeous long natural hair in an elegant updo. The style she wore was not too dissimilar to Teyonah Paris’ iconic updo, which I think Natalie’s hairdresser drew inspiration from.
Natalie and her Russian dance partner Artem Chigvinsev danced a quickstep to a ‘jazzy’ interpretation of Usher’s ‘Yeah’. I must admit the ‘jazzy’ version takes a bit of getting used to and the outfits were ‘different’, but on the whole their performance was absolutely brilliant!
Strictly Come Dancing attracts an audience of 10 million viewers per show (UK Population 60-65 million) so it’s as mainstream as it gets. I’m just so happy that UK viewers got the chance to admire natural hair in all its versatile glory 🙂
