Twisted Faux Bangs – DIY Tutorial

Hi Beauties,

I wanted to share a DIY tutorial for a style that I did a couple of weeks back that I really loved.  You guys know that I enjoy doing different faux styles, from my faux bob and faux knot to this new faux twisted bangs!

  

I was surprised at how pretty simple it was to achieve this look.  It got a lot of attention and so I wanted to show you all the step by step tutorial on how you can achieve the same look.  Click here to check it out.

Easy Bun Hawk

Hello beauties!

Probably one of my favorite all time buns and what I considered to be my go-to bun before I layered my hair is this super easy, edgy but chic bun hawk.

The technique to get the look never changes but depending on the texture of your hair (wet, semi-dry/stretched or completely stretched) it can come out a little differently like you see above.

Before I started challenging myself to do something different every single day, this was an easy way to get a protective, creative yet simple style, especially if I was really short on time.

2 Ways To Use Shapes With Your Next Updo

Hi luvs!

Today I want to talk a bit about shape an angles when it comes to hairstyles. In my YouTube video 3 Keys To Developing Creative Styles which you can watch here, I talk about how embracing shape and angles opens up more opportunity for styling options. 

Here are the two main shapes I tend to embrace to come up with unique looks:

1. Circles: you might not realize it but circular styles are easy to come up with, outside of a typical halo/crown braid or bun. Here are a few different styles where I embraced a circular shape or rounded edges. 







2. Triangles – triangular shapes allow me to achieve some really unique looks up front and they tend to be really bold. Take a look at these styles where I embraced a trianglular shape





The easiest way  to achieve these circular or triangular looks is by using 1 or more sections of twisted hair and pulling and pinning them until they form the shape you’re looking for. You can also try to just form the hair into the shape and secure with bobby pins along the way, but this is a bit more difficult. 

That’s it beauties! Try embracing one of these shapes with your next experimental updo and see where you end up.

Muuuahhhh!!!
