I was really excited when I heard this week’s challenge was to model the accessories we were sent. I was sent this wonderful leopard print statement necklace along with a cream color newsboy hat. From the moment I saw the necklace I knew that for my hair, I wanted to do some type of updo. When researching hairstyles, I came across Janelle Monae and I fell in love with her pompadour. I had to try this style! The first thing I did was divide my hair in sections. I then sprayed each section with water and applied Going-Naturals Silky Shea Hair Butter to my ends. Once I had done this, I detangled my hair and combed it out so it would be easier to twist. I achieved this pompadour look by starting from the my nape and twisting upwards towards the top of my head. When I got to the top of my head I used bobby pins to pin down the sides of the twist and then I formed a little poof with the free hair and also used bobby pins to pin it down. A quick and easy style which resulted in a very fashionable and protective updo.
Asha Mandella is Guinness World Record holder for the longest Natural Dreadlocs. With over 19 feet of locks, Ashas hair alone is a beautiful work of art. In this style, however, her locks are showcased in what resembles a chain lock of Dreadlocks.
I like to thank everyone for coming out and making openings night such a success. I truly enjoyed every single moment of sharing my pursuit of nappiness in pictures and words with all of you.
