This week’s looks + first full updo

Me on Monday:



I had washed and braided my hair as usual on Sunday but last week Monday I wasn’t happy with how my braid out had come out. It was just too wirey looking and gappy so I decided to just try getting my hair all together and figuring it out as I went along. I used no gel, just about 20 or 30 pins! I left my front bit out to make a slight bump. I pinned it down after securing the back. My issue was the “ponytail” bit of my hair, I wanted it to almost look like a bun with no hair sticking out. So I closed it up with the clip…

A bit crooked but did the job! 

Me yesterday (Tuesday):



LOVED this! This is how a side fro should look like, well at least for my length, lol. Was very happy with how this came out. I re-braided my mabutu on Monday eve, this time slightly fatter. Undid on Tuesday morn, ruffled it up a bit then spritzed my left side and gelled it down. Then as I was holding down the hair, I used pins to secure. Tied my scarf around to flatten, making sure not to squash my right side et voila 😀

Me on Wednesday & Friday:


Loved the side fro so much, I rocked it on the other side on Wednesday. On Wednesday eve, I’d just flat twisted the whole head as I was knackered. In the morn, I figured I’d just tie my scarf but as I was doing it, I thought I’d try letting out a bit of hair in the front as I’m now addicted to some “hang” lol. So I braided two fat mabutu right in the front while styling the rest. I unbraided just before heading to work, pinning the front down so it hung a bit. Loved being able to look up and see my hair in my face haha.
