So, about today’s hair. I’m taking advantage of this awesome twist out and decided on a side pompadour. Something different, but I like it.
I stopped by Walgreens searching for some new fall beauty products and came across Fergie’s Wet ‘n Wild lipstick line. I purchased a couple of colors including the ultimate bold lip color. Fergie calls it “Pagan Angel” I call it black…and fierce! Looking forward to pairing this beautiful bold lippie.
Now you guys know that I’ve worn twists numerous times. But never have they looked like this! There’s something about this undercut that just does something different to my twists.
Ok so obviously I’m feeling my new cut. Really, this was an awesome decision. Sometimes on this natural hair journey it pays to just try something new!
As some of you know I’ve been thinking about cutting my hair. Well, Saturday morning the thinking came to an end and I took action! After a lot of thought I decided that while I’m not ready for another big chop I was totally up for an undercut!
My true undercut inspiration came a few weeks ago when I did a post on the Curly Christians blog called “Up Your Undercut Game”. It seems as though on my mission to inspire other naturalistas on cool ways to keep their natural hair journey interesting, I ended up inspiring myself! After tons of photo research on undercuts I really started considering the idea.
This past Friday after looking through one of my major creative inspirations Instagram page, Kaori Nik, I said to myself “Yep! I’m doing it”. This beautiful and talented woman’s pics put me in motion!
With that, I called my hubby and told him I wanted him to cut my hair this weekend. Up for just about anything he said, “Ok, sure.” Saturday morning came, I parted my hair how I wanted it and hubby took care of the rest.
I styled it in a high twist out ponytail with a little hair out in the front. I absolutely LOVE the results!! Hubby did a great job and am so excited about this next chapter of my natural hair journey!
Here are the pics!
Today I decided to embrace the frizz! I re-wet yesterday’s wash and go and threw it up in a loose ponytail leaving just a little out in the front. Typically I would add just a little Eco Styler to help redefine the curls but today I decided not to do that.
See, the thing about natural hair is, frizzy works!
This week I seem to be extremely inspired by purple tones. Blending various combinations of purple can create some great looks.
It all started with a simple nail polish change. I decided to start the week with a great color by Sinful Colors called “Fig”. I then went over that color with one coat of Pure Ice “Cheating” for a little sparkle.
Then it kind of took off from their with details like this vintage flower bracelet
And this super cute bow tie blouse
Yep! I can definitely see myself playing with more purple tones as we move into fall.
Last night I had a bit of free time and decided to set my hair in 5 chunky flat twists using Dark & Lovely’s Au Naturale Super Softening Hair Butter. This is the first time I’ve tried a flat twist out and I absolutely love the results! I didn’t do much for styling, pretty much just unraveled the twists.
This style is great for fall when the humidity is low. We’re not quite there in Atlanta so I’ll be staying inside today :o)
