Now since I’m not brave enough to shave half my head a la Rihanna or Cassie, I decided to go with a funky braided updo that lets me pretend I’m hip, lol. I’d gotten fed up with my hair so I asked my cousin to come and put me out of my hair misery. It took 30 to do and we used the picture below for inspiration:
And this is the end result…I wasn’t too bothered about what was going on at top though to imitate it exactly I would have needed some fake hurr (afro kinky extensions) to add some volume. This way it was more flexible because I could do a twist out or tuck and pin it out of the way. I mostly did the pin and tuck thing but once in a while I’d do the twist out.
And the view from the back…..And the pin and tuck…This hair style is so easy to maintain too! A simple spray every morning and I’m ready to go! I washed and conditioned it as well but of course got a bit messy and given how itchy my hair is right now I’ll probably last one more day then surrender. It has lasted just under two weeks. I’ll probably do this again sometime soon.
Oh and happy valentines day everyone! 🙂
