Today I want to talk about 3 easy ways to take your hair styles higher! Ya’ll know how much I love high hair. It has so much presence. It’s daring, bold and down right fierce! I use a few key methods to achieve high hair that I want to share with you today, all which I’m able to get the most height out of when I style with completely dry stretched hair.
1. Pompadours: This is probably the easiest way that I achieve high hair. My pompadour method is quick and easy and the hight can be adjusted easily. To see A video tutorial of my go-to pompadour method click here. If you want to surpass my rambling just skip to about 4:25 into the video :o)
2. French roll: The thing I love most about french rolls is the opportunity for versatility, which you can read more about here. Some of my highest hairstyles have been achieved with different french roll variations. The hight is achieved in how high you gather the hair and how loose you roll and tuck the hair
3. Loose flat twists: You can do a million and one things with flat twists, including create high hair! Loosely flat twisting a section of hair up front allows you to form and adjust the hight of your hair easily.
So, next time you’re looking for a style that will command attention, consider taking your natural hair higher with one of these styling methods.
It was another long work week. But I’m back with my undercut’s new favorite style…and mine! It’s definitely this big side pompadour. I am loving it. I especially love the fact that I can play with different variations that all end up dope!
This past week I wore the style for the first time to work and it got so much love.
How many ways can you wear a side pompadour? My new favorite game to play. Lol! Here are some picks…
It’s Saturday Loves!
I hope you all are having a great day. After my workout this morning I took a shower, rinsed my hair and put it in about 10 fairly chunky twists using Shea Moisture Curly Hair Milk. After some Saturday cleaning I unraveled the twists and separated them until POW! Massive mane achieved!
Well, my family and I have officially moved to Atlanta! I’m so excited about this next chapter of our lives. God has been at the forefront of this move and we will continue to look to Him for guidance.
I was off from work all week to get us all settled in. Things have been great so far. I love our new apartment despite how much smaller it is from our house in FL. It’s perfect…for now.
I had the pleasure of running into natural hair icon and inspiration Natural Chica aka Nikki Mae in the grocery store. I spotted here mega fro a mile away. Kinda made my week!
And now in honor of Fro Friday I’m still rocking my fro in the “A”!!! Here are some pics.
Well, this week is my last week in Florida before my family and I relocate to Georgia! I’m so excited to start a adventure in a new city. But first…you know I’ve gotta go out big!
Yesterday at work I was totally giving them life at work with this ridiculously awesome fro! Loved it! I’m really going to miss inspiring my coworkers and making the place more exciting. But, onward and upward!
So you all know how much I LOVE rocking a fro. Well, today of course is no exception. This curly fro today is giving me so much life! Something about its shape is just amazing.
I think I was able to achieve this look by wearing a chunky twist out yesterday (using Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk) and not doing anything to my hair before bed. I just wore my bonnet as usual. And this morning, applied some Eco Styler Gel and pow! In love!
I celebrated my 3 year natural hair anniversary last week ! Three years ago on April 3rd I chopped off my hair, and embraced my curls, one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!!
There are days when I really want to achieve a certain look and my hair just does NOT want to cooperate. I’m sure we’ve all been there and frankly it can be down right frustrating…if you let it get to that point. Well, before I allow myself to get too worked up over my defiant hair I remind myself that, I am natural! And no matter what state my hair is in as long as it has some type of moisturizer in it, I’ll just throw some water in it, shake my head up and down and side to side and keep it stepping!
Wouldn’t you know that it’s those days when my hair does absolutely whatever it wants that I end up loving my hair the most. Here are some prime examples of my defiant hair at its best.
I guess sometimes we’ve just got to learn to trust our curls!
It took me a good two and a half years of being natural but I can finally appreciate the ability to get up and not do anything to my hair!
Yesterday was my undercover deep condition and baggy day. I put my hair in 6 chunky twists under a baggy and beanie and went on with my day. I took the twists out last night and basked in the awesomeness of super moisturized hair.
I went to bed without twisting my hair or anything, just a satin scarf. This morning I got up took the bonnet off shook out my hair and pow!! That was it. Spent all day enjoying my get up and go big hair.
There I go, being true to me @tjluvsbeingnatural. Indeed I do!
Here is my last night freshly deep conditioned hair and my get up and go hair. Be you beauties!
Paired this super nice thrifted jacket with this sort of snake skin patterned dress from Macy’s with pops of cobalt and purple. Topped it off with a beat face of purple tones including this incredible lipstick by Revlon VaVa Violet. And I can’t forget this 5 day old wash and go with tons of volume. Love! Happy Friday :o)
