There are times when you want to dress up your look but you just don’t have the funds right then to go out and get something new done. What you need to do is add some existing pizzazz to elevate your do from drab to fab!
I know, you’re wondering what your belts, scarves, bags and jewellery have to do with your hair.
Have a fresh look at all your old accessories and try to imagine them working with your hair. You’d be surprised what magic you can come up with!
You want to do it in a way that complements your Going Natural Nappshop so go for something with a little ethnic vibe. Think patterns, texture and colour.
You don’t have to tie an elaborate headdress. Sometimes beauty lies in simplicity. Try using a much loved scarf as a simple head wrap or maybe an old bracelet as a ponytail holder.
See how her hair gets a sudden lift of color and a flirty playfulness from her ponytail holder? That’s what I’m talking about!
One of my favourite tricks is to use a scarf as a turban with a twisty knot at the nape of my neck. Or you could wrap it around your head to get an Erykah Badu type vibe. Actually there are loads of ways to tie a headscarf – you go with what works best for you.
You could take an old beaded necklace and weave it through your puff or tie it at the base for a pop of texture.
If you are in the market for some new accessories that won’t bankrupt you, then check some out Going Natural Nappshop. Most accessories are affordable and funky too as well as designed to be kind to your natural hair, so no pulling or tangling there.
My personal favourites are the double rowed cowrie head band (there’s just something about it that says “African Queen” to me) and the colorful pony tail holders.
However you decide to jazz up your hairstyle remember to have fun with it and own it!
