Goddess Braids

I’m always looking for easy, low maintenance hair styles, especially during the summer when you might not want to do your hair everyday…. Actually that can be any day in any season! lol! Good thing this style is for any occasion!
unnamedHere’s a quick and easy tutorial on how to create goddess braids, a chic protective style perfect for summer!

When I tell you this is an easy style I’m not lying! I’ve never braided extra hair into my head until now & I got compliments on this hair every where I went -I’ll be honest, it took a good 2 or 3 tries before it looked presentable but that was mostly because my braiding skills were little rusty. lol!

The main thing to remember when trying this style is to make sure the Marley hair matches your own, I just showed the hair I used. Also you can use any type of EcoStyler, Argon Oil is my personal preference.

If you try out this style tag me in your pics @BlondiesLipstick on Twitter & Instagram

Day 3 & still very defined!!

**Update**

LOVE this style!! & while it can be tedious the style can last you over a week! I wore it 6 days straight!


I could’ve stretched it at least 2 more days but the night before day 6 I twisted my hair into Bantu knots & got those adorable curly coils! Only problem is my coarse texture will lock if left in coils too long & the Bantu knots accelerated that! I basically had tiny dreadlocks!!

If your hair happens to do this also, don’t panic & grab the scissors!! Instead reach for your spray bottle & some conditioner (or detangler), let it sit on your hair for 5-7mins, separate your hair into sections & unravel/detangle the coils starting from the ends and work your way up. -I don’t recommend using a comb to detangle because you’ll be able to separate more knots with your fingers.

Hope this helps!!

Also if you have any suggestions of styles I should try next leave them in the comments below or tweet me!

Ugh–This Weather Sucks For Hair: 10 Fool-Proof Products For Fighting Frizz

Frizzy Hair

Sure, it’s easy to maintain perfectly styled hair in nice, cool weather. But as soon as the heat starts rising, and with it the humidity levels, our hair does too. If you’re getting bigger and bigger hair these days (and not in the intended “Texas” way), then you’re probably in need of a good anti-frizz styling product. The sweltering heat and humidity can turn even perfectly blown out hair to fro status within seconds, and then it’s virtually impossible to go backwards from there. Luckily, there are tons of hair products that will defrizz, detangle and smooth your locks instantly—there are even special frizz-fighting brushes and blow dryers too. If you’re looking for manageable summer hair, check out the slideshow above for our favorite picks now.

Curls, Coils & Kinks: Flat Twist Out

Neutrals

It’s late (by like 2 weeks, my bad!) but here’s my first natural hair vid! Here’s my wash day regime & an “umbrella style” flat twist out. Hope you like!

Day 1

-I didn’t have time to take the twists down before work so I wore this scarf tied as a turban

image

Day 2

-I liked the look of my twists pinned to the side so I chose a different scarf & this time let that little bit show

image

Day 3

-unraveled the twists & they came out as golden coils!! LOVE!!!

image

Day 4

-I f-ed up the style by “refreshing my curls” with my spray bottle forgetting there was water in there. Smh.

image

 

-that night I twisted it like this using olive oil hair gel & let it set the next day

image

Day 6

-unraveled the twists & got this! I like!

I told you guys I would change the name of this segment!! While I do feel like a creeper calling myself a stalker but hey, the truth is the truth. Lol!
This week it’s one of the biggest weeks in fashion- New York Fashion Week!!! While I would have loved to be there to cover events & get my fill of (as June Ambrose would say) stylish mavericks & mavens, my last vacation days were already allotted to a cruise -can’t wait to set sail!!! Luckily for me, like you, I follow celebs who attended all sorts of shows & shared them with us! Even luckier for me my talented, gorgeous superstar line sister Essence was right there in the action too giving me a front row seat to what the not famous YET would see!! Last night she attended a Diane Von Furstenburg event, check it out!
