Bridal Hair Series: Pin Tucked Twists

This week’s style is compliments of Nigerian actress Geneviève Nnaji. Some of my bridesmaids are natural and plan to remain natural so my searches have also encompassed natural styles.  This style that Geneviève is rocking  is a nice elegant look for a natural sister.  I like that it is twisted/plaited and pin tucked and so could easily be done in advance with a little water based gel for hold and still look presentable the day...

Bridal Hair Series: Wedding Bun

This week’s feature is an elegant spin on the classic bun style.  The bun is a versatile style, suitable for most faces and can easily transform from an office look to a black dress affair.  It is also ideal for those afraid of having their hair “flop” on the big day. While I like this style, think it’s very elegant and sophisticated; it’s too normal for my big day – I wear my hair in one most days...

Janet Jackson’s New Hairstyle

I got a glimpse of this over at  earlier this week at Khalia’s blog – Obsession Confessions of Glamour and Love, and I can’t stop thinking how great this style looks.  I love it!!  I know Janet got some slack when the original photos of the slicked down version hit the Internet, but clearly y’all were mistaken. The cut really suits her face and is a nice change from the weaves, ponytails and wigs we’ve...

Style Snapshot: Spiral Curls

Some weeks ago I tried a straw set using a different product and a new technique.  I used the Miss Jessie’s Curly Meringue and when I wrapped the hair around the Strawllers I did it so that the hair only covered the half of the roller closest to my scalp.  My intent was to create a tighter, shorter curl to give the appearance of a short naturally curly bob.  I was desperate to find a use for the Curly Meringue and to be honest I...

Style Snapshot

This week, I did a spin on a french roll.  This is a good protective style for keeping my hair away from the elements and a very elegant look for the office or even a night out.   It was done in a rush so it’s not as smooth as I would like, but such is the case when you’re rushing off to work. Please excuse the pics.  I tried taking them myself and you can definitely tell....
