The Look That Went Viral

Okay…maybe semi viral. Either way this week has been pretty amazing for TJLuvsBeingNatural. I’m so excited about how many different people I’ve inspired this week with my styles. I’ve gotten somewhere around 500 new Instagram followers, 100 new Facebook followers and about 100 new followers for my YouTube channel that I recently started back up. All of this awesomeness started on Monday with this look and picture.

I called this hair of the day 3 Chunky Tucked Twists. Everyone just seemed to really like it. It was featured on several different natural hair pages was shared several times on Facebook and was featured in Good Hair Magazines blog article “7 Stunning Lady Fades”. The last time I checked there were 15K views on Facebook and over 500K on Instagram I’m sure. I so love inspiring people ❤

Needless to say I'll probably end up doing a tutorial for this look this weekend.

Flat Twist How-To

Hi beauties!

So most of you know that a lot of my styles include some sort of flat twist. It’s become so regular that I thought it would be a nice idea to do a detailed video tutorial on the two different ways that I flat twist to achieve such unique looks. Take a look and give the video a thumbs up if it’s helpful.

Hello beauties!

I hope you all had a great Saturday. Today I wanted to show you all how I styled my mini twists this week. Although my twists were very defiant and wanted to do what they wanted pretty much every day, I still had a lot of fun playing with different looks.

So let’s take a look at each style!

If have to say that the best of the week for me was Tuesday’s look. I loved the shape of this style. I had a bit of an edgy look going on that day and it just all came together nicely in my opinion. What’s your favorite?

Show Off

Hello loves!

For the past few weeks I’ve been a bit of a show off wearing some great colors from the Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer line. I’m am loving these! They are nice and creamy and keep my lips very moisturized.

So far I’ve just been playing with these colors (from left to right: Galaxy, Luna, Light Year, Stellar
