This Morning I wanted to share a super cute geeen makeup and secure protective style using my signature Twist, Pull & Pin technique. I adore the way this look turned out.
The hair is a combination of 4 flat twists and ai added some hair jewelry for a little more flare. With the use of a little edge control and by wrapping it up every night with a Satan scarf this style can probably last a full week with no problems.
If you’d like the step by step watch the full tutorial here.
Oh! And as for this monochromatic green makeup look I used my usual 120 color BH Cosmetics Palette. And the pretty green lippie is from the nyx cosmetics Wicked Lippie collection and is called Risqué. It’s crazy bold but beautiful, I think.
Well, that’s all for now!
This week I decided to take one of the products from the October curlBOX for a drive. Of course curlBOX leveled up AGAIN with this months box and featured all full size products from one of my favorite product lines EVER! Quenching Coconut Curls by OGX.
I’ve been raving about this line for a year now and we’ll, nothing has changed! This is the most moisture rich live I’ve encountered. The products have so much slip and leave my hair hydrated and soft.
This time I decided to go with one of the products from the line I don’t use that often, the Curl Styling Milk.
I also decided to work with stretched hair which is also something I don’t do very often. The results were well…
Pretty awesome right!? Of course I have a talk through as I discover the results myself in a YouTube video. Check it out here.
Today I’ve got another fall Hair and makeup look I hope you’ll enjoy. The makeup is starring the beautiful color of burgundy, and the hair is a quick, creative and captivating roll/twist combination updo.
I really like the way this entire look came together. If you’d like to see the deets on the makeup, click here. And, if you’d like to see the step by step for the hair, click here.
That’s it for now! Until next time luvs

As most of you know my husband is the one who originally did my undercut for me. He’s also kept it nicely maintained for over a year.
Well, this year I decided to venture out into the world of professional barber undercut slayage. I’ve had the privilege of having my undercut trimmed by both a male and a female barber and thought I’d run through some of they key things I noticed.
1. Ability – I can definitely say that both barbers that cut my hair are extremely talented. They both have great attention to detail and are extremely meticulous.
2. Creativity – I gave both barbers free reign over their designs. I wanted them to have the opportunity to get as creative as they wanted to. While both designs were crisp I did notice more detail in the design by the female barber.
3. Level of comfort – I consider myself to be someone who is comfortable with both men and women in general. However, in this particular case I did find myself to be more comfortable with the female barber, most likely I think because, she is a female. There was more conversation during the process and she was more personable.
Overall I was very pleased with the final look from both barbers and their professionalism was on point.
When it’s all said and done my overall barber preference is….hubby!! I know, I know, he’s not a barber by profession but I love having him be such a big part of my hair journey and he does a great job keeping my undercut clean. I’m so focused on style creativity and coming up with unique looks that having designs on my undercut just isn’t that important to me. Not to mention that hubby and I have a ton of fun together.
That’s it for now luvs.
Happy Friday luvs!
Well, my creative styling has continued pretty much all week which has been super exciting for me. I truly have missed using my signature Twist, Pull & Pin technique to create some really unique styles.
Today I want to share my favorite look from this week.
I adore this creative twisted updo style. The volume and dimension provided by the chunky twists along with my hair color really set this style off. Of course I have a tutorial! If you’re interested in seeing the step by step check out the quick video here.
Have a great weekend!
Now that my hair is getting thicker and is restoring nicely from my color damage I’m excited to be able to get back to some creative twisted updo styling.
I had envisioned a jumbo flat twist style this weekend and tried to bring it to life yesterday. I can’t say that I was a complete success, but I was very happy with the outcome. It was really tough getting shots that captured the style but I did my best!

Ya’ll know how much I love updos. What you might not know is how much I adore bangs! Yes, bangs. My love for the look isn’t constant but when I do want to wear the style I opt for these super cute faux bangs
I love this look. And yesterday I decided to pair it with a pin curl bun.
Pin curls are an easy way to make a bun more fun and creative. Of course I filmed a tutorial for this style. If you want to see exactly how I got it click here. That’s all for now! But first, a few more pics.
