Crimped Bob… Pleasantly Surprised

All this week, I have been wearing my twists back into a french braid and tucked under. It’s ironic that forever, all I ever wanted was for my shrunken twists to sit on my shoulders.

More Ponytails

Last night, I pulled my hair into a ponytail and put in six flexirods. The curls were soooo cute when I first took them out, but by the time I’d gotten to work, they’d all fallen. Guess I’m going to have to use something to set them with. I’m almost certain plain water will work. … Continue reading

COLOR! I Finally Love It!

Six months after my last attempt to cover my gray with some color, I finally got around to touching up my roots. Only this time, I can’t exactly call it my roots can I when I had more than 2+ inches of new growth. I waited so long for a couple of reasons. One, I’m … Continue reading

Twisted Apple Pony

Well my twists are getting really fuzzy and they’re really stretched out and looking kinda stringy so tonight I decided to see what a high pony might look like.

Classic French Roll

Here’s a classic french roll secured with a side comb. Not really sure how well I like this. I’d have to work on this do a little more, even with the decorative side comb, it still seems rather plain Jane to me. But I think if I needed to do something with my hair in … Continue reading

Herringbone Chignon

  To create this do, each flat twist is criss crossed one by one on top of each other starting with the one in the very top. Once each twist is incorporated, I grabbed some of the flat twists in the back and started making a french braid. Then I stopped near the nape of … Continue reading
