I love updos. My love for them really started when I big chopped and had no hair to put up! When relaxed, it was all about wearing my hair down to show length. Being natural makes a length test being about the ability to wear my hair up. I mean, rocking your first puff is HUGE!
I love challenges. They keep me on my toes, don’t allow me to get into a rut and best of all provide great material for a catalogue of looks and also pushes me to try new and unexpected looks (you probably didn’t know I also do wardrobe challenges every once in awhile to keep it fresh, but that’s another post…)
So when I decided to do another hair challenge, I knew it obviously had to be…well, a challenge! And I know how challenging it can be finding updo inspiration for natural hair, especially for resistant hair like mine. So how much more challenging would it be to style my hair in an updo everyday for a month? How many different ways are there? In weaves, braids and relaxed hair, we wear updos for work, weddings and other formal events. Yet when it comes to natural hair, we kind of get stumped for ideas. They’re out there, just not as easily replicable for my resistant hair as some of the other styles are. At least, that’s what I’ve found.
Well, I’m going to do it. I’m going to rock 30 natural hair updo styles over 30 days. And I define an updo as having 50% (or more) of my hair ‘not free’ lol. No repeats but modifications are allowed. Give Fro a break on wash day. This time, my videos will be part of the fun too!
And with that, I’ll leave you with some fab updo inspiration. More can be found on my Pinterest I Love Natural Hair! Board:
