Wedding Hair Part IV – Twists & Spirals

Today we’ll cover Part 4 of our Wedding Hair Series featuring the ladies from my bridal party.  If you missed Parts 1 thru 3, check the bottom of this post for links to those  posts. This bridesmaid was the only bridesmaid that was texturized.  I would say that she is somewhere between a 4a and 4b hair type – it’s thick but not very coarse.  Months before the wedding she was sporting a very low boy cut and had opted...

Wedding Hair Part II – Cascading 2-strand Twists

We’re back for Part 2 of our Wedding Hair Series featuring the hairstyles worn at my wedding.  If you missed Part 1 you can check it out here.

Men’s Hair – Twists II

As promised, this post will feature photos of the fiancé’s hair twisted by yours truly. Of course this is not a men’s only style, it looks just as great on females, but I particularly like to see it on guys because it’s not quite twiggies and it’s still neat and professional enough to be worn in the office. At first I used to do two-strand twists on his hair ( and part out even sections *SMH*), but after seeing...

Men’s Hair – Twists I

Sometime late last year after getting engaged my fiance decided that he wanted to grow his hair and stopped having it cut.  At first it was a self-inflicted challenge to see how much his hair would grow but as time progressed he became more and more attached to the puff on his head.  Initially I encouraged his hair growth because I thought it would be something different for him to try and secretly I wanted somebody’s head to...
