Afro achieved by picking out my twist out.
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.
Creating a style that defines your curls can often prove to be tedious and sometimes seems impossible. Don’t give up! Doodling your hair will give it the definition and look you desire! But wait! You will also need the PERFECT products for setting your look. Going Natural’s hair products will give you the boost, definition and soft but lasting hold your curls need! You will be more than shined and defined after using these instructions and the Going Natural Products!
Personalizing this style is only limited by your imagination!
This style was created by simply doing a high pony tail on one side. I did the crinkly style first so my locs wouldn’t be so straight but would have a bit of volume.
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.
An interesting and fun hairstyle to make your own….. its doodles!
I wrap my hair often not only when I feel like my hair does not look good, but more as a fashion statement. I have found that winter scarves are the best for head wrapping as they are more stretchy. You can always find fabric at fabric stores but you need something stretchy and definitely do sew the ends. I also add a flower or feather just for that extra touch.
