Natural Hair Update | Different ways you can Style your Hair.

I just took down the 4 chunky braid out I did 2 nights ago

Don't get it twisted beauties, I am still very much on my Natural Hair Journey!!!!

Hello dolls,

How are you all doing? I hope everyone is fine? I know it's been forever since I put up any hair post, I know, I know, I know. I promised myself that this year , I would do more of protective styles, that way keeping my own hair locked in.

I've truly missed having my hair out, honestly I have, but the routine of washing at night, getting it twisted or braided, and then taking it down the next morning, or wearing a wig, is not a walk in the park. Protective styles are so easy to handle, and can last at least 2 weeks, depending on what you have on. I carried my purple braids for 5 weeks, omg!!! I was so busy, I didn't even know the hair had lasted that long.

Anyways, for today's post you all would be getting a 2-in- 1 delight. Look of the Day and Hair!!!!

I'll show you different ways to style your hair with the help of accessories as well as my look for today which was requested by Odion, she wanted to see neutral eyes and red lips.

Enjoy the collection below....

For this look , I just used a black hair band to pack the hair up
with the hair band still on , I used a small scarf round the hair band and created a bow in front
Here I removed the scarf, with the black hair band still intact I simply clipped a red rose to the side of my hair.

Here, I took off the hair band, tried to do a mohawk, or frohawk using bobbi pins on both sides. 

length check for the back 
length check for the front, every naturalista would understand!!!
And now the classic Afro, I used a wide teethed comb to lift the curls, just so the hair would fro.....

I used an Alice band here, but the band wont show.. sorrryyyy!!!
For the final look, I removed the alice band,  went back with the hair band, pulled the hair into a pineapple bun, and used another hair accessory to style it. 
Thanks to my friend Trace D' Lace for my lovely earrings, birthday gift since 2013 and I am still rocking it. Everyone knows me with it now....

My hair is out to play for a few days, and then it's back to another protective style. I can't wait to share it with you all.
