For centuries, Cowrie shells were used as currency and seen as a symbol of wealth. The Cowrie Headband is a great topper for a formal updo. I couldn’t help myself and had to wear one Cowrie Headband as a choker!
Instructions: One Cowrie Headband was placed around the base of the updo near the top of the head and tied at the back. The strings were pinned in place with hair pins. The other Cowrie Headband was placed around the neck and tied.

While participating in ANNM, I have been confronted with many thoughts about beauty and how we see ourselves. In this weeks challenge specifically, I have learned the importance of styling and posing to make your best side shine through. I have found that when I glow on the inside my outward beauty completely radiates!  I encourage all of my natural family out and about to love the beauty that is found without as well as within, the beauty that is found in God’s grace and love: the beauty in simple peace, in smiling at a person when they may be down.  This beauty will make you look even better on the outside than you already do. Enjoy and God Bless you all.

Natural Hairstyle for America’s Next Natural Model. Munya Magande on Challenge 2. I used the Roller Braid to condition my scalp after braiding my long locs in an updo. What I love about this product is that it goes on smooth and does not feel greasy. With this product in my hair I can have my locs braided at the back for more than 3 weeks.

I am wearing a beautiful head wrap (dark blue with a bit of mauve and beige). It is a head wrap long enough to cover all your hair if you want to. You can also let your hair loose on the back or on the side as well. It is extensible and very easy to use. Different hairstyles can be done with this head wrap which can also be used as a scarf. I personally love it and strongly recommend it 🙂
