Nina Ellis-Hervey Challenge 8

Nina Ellis-Hervey Challenge 8

 

An updo is a style I frequently re-visit.  It is quite the style, adding the right amount of flair, pizazz and eloquence.  In honor of this impeccable style, I present to you the ever so twisted updo, showcasing the perfect mixture of small, medium and large, flat and loose twists joining to create a beautiful side bun.  This style is blessed with versatility and also just the right touch of grace and poise to be fitting for Miss Nappturality.

My updo was inspired by the essence of who I am…not much fuss, nor too extravagant… Simple, yet complex in nature. I love styles that represent me. I usually just go with the flow and that is how I chose to do this style. I stood in front of the mirror—without a plan— and let my fingers work.  Also I try to choose styles that don’t require much manipulation, as it can cause breakage.

We have explored different ways to wear and style your curls, waves and glorious naps. In this final week, an updo was created that represented the look of America’s Next Natural Model Miss Nappturality and also defined what being America’s Next Natural Model means to me. I created two! Take a look and do try these styles on for yourself as well as the beautiful and uniquely designed hat by Gabriel Amar of Frank Olive Hats. Hats off to those who’ve supported and rooted for me with your votes and comments. Thank you all! God bless.
