Side Pompadour

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.

Up For An Undercut!

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!

Inspired By Purple Tones

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.
