I created this style on a whim. I luv when when this happens because these are usually the dopest styles compared to the ones you planned out (and come out a H.A.M, right?). I did this on hair that was moisturized (with my Shea Moisture Conditioning Milk, of course. Luv that stuff for my hair!) and stretched via a braid out. (You'll see, if you haven't caught on already, that this is the main way I stretch my hair.) You could do this on a twist out, curly fro or bantu knot out too. I used an EZ Comb to pull back the front for a half up, half down look. My bangs are still short some, so I just used a bobby pin to pin down the straggling pieces in the front. Viola!
I found this knock off EZ Comb at one of my local beauty supply stores for 99 cents. I have two of the "official" ones that I got from Walgreens in a 2 pack for $10, before I knew they were selling knock offs at the BSS. Lmao. If you want high quality ones that come in a varitey of sizes, then check out HairZings.
Then I got the idea to pin the ends under for a bun look. I really liked this. #protectivestyle
I know some of you are edges/baby hair freaks. I am not. Lol. So use a lil gel, if that's your thing, to get your sides sleeker. I wasn't going anywhere special but if I wanted to rock this for a dressier occassion maybe then I slick the sides some with AfroVeda PUR Whipped Hair Gelly.
So there ya have it: two simple and chic styles that are oh so easy to create. Either look can be worn with a professional work, formal or casual look. It took me no more than 10 minutes to create these styles.
BONUS: Here's a sneak peak of a new style I'm working on for the shop. This style is called "Origami Fabric Earrings". Be on the look out for styles like these sometime next month.
Next up: The Makeup Show highlights. Yes, I made it there this year!
Don't get me wrong, I love the pairs I have! :)
I may try that style tonight for when I go bowling.
I am so sold on this shea moisture..off to target to spend the money I dont have
Great ideas, thanks
Yes, Ada, that Shea Moisture Conditioning Milk is my STUFF now! Glad it has your hair happy too. :D
When u stretch ur hair with braid outs, do u do cornrows or single braids (plaits)?
But I'm glad I'm not crazy because I knew someone had styled their natural hair with these combs!
