Jumbo Flat Twists

Hey luvs! 

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!

That’s it for now! 




Forward Flat Twist & Beanie

Hi luvs!

I absolutely adore wearing beanies during the fall. They offer a little something extra to your look, are super cute and well, convenient! Let’s face it, sometimes we have those days when we don’t feel like doing anything extravagant with our hair, or maybe just want to go with a more casual look. Well, here’s a cute and simple beanie style that you can rock on days like those.

3 Ways To Take Your Hair Higher

Hi luvs!

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. 

Creativity Never Sleeps

Hello beauties!

So, it turns out that the saying “Creativity never sleeps” really is true. Earlier this week I had a dream about this awesome flat twist style. It was gorgeous! I thought I’d give a shot at accomplishing it on Monday. Fail. Don’t get me wrong, it was nice but not at all like what I visioned in my dream.


Today, I thought I’d give it another shot. Here’s the video of my effort which yielded another fail but an incredibly nice, unique creative fail! Lol. Let me know what you think.

The Almost Infinity Twist

Hello loves!!

I’ve got some major catching up to do on blog posts but I just wanted to show you all my hair of the day.

I straightened my hair earlier this week so that I could trim my ends and so I’ve been playing with some styles . Today I went with this…


It reminds me a lot of an infinity braid or twist which I love but this is nothing more than two flat twists. I separated my hair into two fairly equal sections. For the front section I flat twisted all if the hair to the left side. And for the back I did the same thing. Lastly I tucked the end of the front flat twist inside the flat twist in the back, and I tucked the end of the back flat twist inside the front one. Here are some more pics!

P.S. I get my iPhone 6 Plus next week so videos coming soon!
