Today I wanted to share the key deets on this look from last week. I was going for something really dark, crisp and dramatic.
There are a few products that helped me accomplish this. First is my go to 2nd Edition 120 color BH Cosmetics eyeshadow pallet. I used the navy and black shadow for my eyes and on the lips is this NYX Wicked lippie in the color Sinful.
I absolutely love this color! It’s so bold but beautiful. I paired it with some big silver earrings that offered a really great contrast to the look.
What’s your favorite bold lippie?
It’s not often that you’ll see me wearing a wash and go, but when I do you know I have to make it different! Last weekend I decided I wanted to define my curls. I used the Krystal Eco Styler Gel for definition.
This worked ok but I prefer the Olive Oil Eco Styler. It’s a lot more flexible. At any rate the next three days looked like this.
Day 1 – Messy curls
You can’t go wrong with messy defined curls. After all, that’s pretty much the point of a wash and go. It’s not often that I love day 1 hair but this was life!
Day 2 – High pompadour
Pompadours are one of my absolute favorite styles, so of course I decided to take my day 2 wash and go and throw it up into a bold high pompadour and pair it with some beautiful purple hues.
Day 3 – Head wrapped
A head wrap is a great way to take almost any style and give it some flare. That’s exactly what I did with my day 3 wash and go hair. Although I don’t have a how to on tying head wraps my lovely @nellynelle19 has a great tutorial on tying headwraps that I took some tips from. You can check it out here
I had a lot of fun with these looks. Which one do you like best?
After wearing my mini twists for about a month I was finally able to try out my September curlBOX products. The box included 10-in-1 Renewal products by Shea Moisture.
I’ve almost never met a product by this brand that I didn’t like so I was really excited to try them out. Here are the results

My favorite style from wearing mini twists last month has got to be my Bantu knot out. I always struggle doing this style but with twists it was so much easier! And the curls, the curls came out beautifully.
I used the same typical method for the knots and I can definitely say that I’ll be doing this style again.
Plus, the definition lasted for days!
What do you think?
Last month I decided to install mini twists in preparation for the new baby. I didn’t want to have to spend time thinking about my hair, but still wanted a style that was chic. Mini twists were the answer. Check out my video talking about the products I used some installation tips and more here. Loved rocking these twists!
