If you’ve seen my last post you’ll notice that I am rocking yet another new do, Poetic Justice Inspired Long Box Braids to the waist. I spent the entire weekend putting them in and promised that I would post a little tutorial for those of you that may want to attempt them on yourself or others. So here you go…
I decided to give my hair a break and braid it up for a while so that’s how I spent pretty much my entire weekend, indoors braiding up my hair. I was excited to actually get outdoors today for some fresh air and of course to show off my hair lol
Another discussion post for you guys, this time we are talking about weave… extensions… fake hair or whatever you may call it. I love me some weave and have no problem sewing some tracks in my hair when necessary or wanted to switch up my style, add length, body etc. Do you like/wear weaves or are you anti-weave?
If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook you will notice that I am sporting a new do for Spring. I decided to give my Pixie Cut a break for a while and opted for a Meagan Good Inspired Haircut. This is such an easy style to pull off. If you have a Pixie Cut it is very easy to transform your hair into this style, all you need to do is add a few tracks.
In case some of you didn’t know, I am a Freelance MUA but I am also a Hair Stylist and started doing hair when I was 12 years old, way before I knew anything about makeup. I started doing my own extensions because some of my cousins did hair but never had time to do mine so I started doing my own, and it was a wrap from there. These days I do my own hair all of the time, never go to a hairdresser, but I do other peoples hair on occasion when I feel like it. I think I will start doing other people’s hair on the regular again now though. Anyway I did my cousin Jade’s sew in this weekend for her birthday and it came out great. Have her looking like Pocahontas!
I cut almost an inch off the front of my hair to create a Pixie Cut. I can still wear it curled up the way I usually do since I left the top layers longer, but when I want to wear it straight it’s so easy to wash, set, comb out and go. I love it. I always wear my hair shorter in the summer but this is the shortest I’ve gone in a while.
Hot rollers are my latest addiction. I’ve been using them a lot lately to add volume when my hair is too straight, or to just change my style up on a whim. They are easier to use than a curling iron or flat iron, and safer for your hair in my opinion as the heat temperature is just right so you won’t burn your hair out and they don’t snag or pull causing damage.
