Something new!

Tried out a new protective style today. I think I like it. I love how my highlights offer so much dimension.

This simple style is just 3 ponytails with two loosely twisted sections per ponytail. The twisted sections in the first ponytail are pinned back to the left side. And for the second and third ponytails I pinned one twist up and the other down. Super simple!

For products I just use Cantu Shea Butter’s Curl Creme and Eco Styler gel for my edges. That’s it! What do you think?

A Twisted Bun & Purple Face Beat

Even in spring I can’t escape my love for dark lips! Here’s today’s hair and makeup. A twisted high bun with purple tones. I have Revlon’s VaVa Violet and Berry Haute mixed on my lips, my shadow is from one of my BH Cosmetics pallets and earrings are from the World Natural Hair Show I attended this weekend.

Rose Gold And Curls

Great morning!! Hubby surprised me with a beautiful rose gold and black watch which I am absolutely loving! Decided to sport it today along with a high curly ponytail and one of my new Milani lipsticks! This one is Flamingo Pose and it’s totally popping off my lips. It screams spring even on this rainy cool Florida day.

Straight Hair Problems

It’s been less than a week since I had my hair professionally highlighted and pressed but it’s official…I miss my curls!!

Typically straight hair is fun for me for about a week, then I tend to get bored. I’ve been trying to get a little creative with my straight hair but my stylist did such an incredible job on my press that my hair is too silky and straight to hold a style!

I started Tuesday with a nice side flat twist but by lunch it just refused to stay!

This whole plan of keeping my hair straight for two weeks is starting to go down hill. I’ll keep you guys posted! In the mean time here’s a look at my straight hair this week. Rolling with a simple low pony today.
