Good morning luvs,
I’m super excited that my family and I will be traveling home to Florida for a the long Memorial Day weekend and my first Fearless Textures event which is this Saturday (Ahhh! 😝). I’ve got a lot of preparing to do and didn’t want to have to worry about my hair leading up to the event so, I decided that it was time to bring my go to protective style back, mini twists.
I absolutely adore mini twists. Not only are they super cute they are extremely low maintenance and still allow me to work with my own hair. I’ve never been a wig, weaves, box braids, etc kinda girl. Mini twists have been my protective style preference since I’ve been natural. I can style them up or just let them hang. Either way, they are beautiful!

Yesterday I had a major come to Jesus with myself about my hair. Major deets on that tomorrow, but as a result I ended up doing a blowout and single flat iron pass on my hair.
Creative styling on straight hair is a ton of fun for me. I have lots of tips on things you can do to make straight hair just as fun as super textured hair that you an check out here.
For today, I decided on a simple single flat twist with a whole lot of dimension thanks to my bomb hair color. The color really makes this basic style not so basic. Here is the final look.
After spending all year creating unique styles I wanted to review some of my absolute best styles so I have a benchmark for next year. This year I have consolidated those styles into a single video. Click the image below to see my 2015 Best of TJluvsbeingnatural year end video featuring 11 style categories and my top 4 picks for each category.
More to come in 2016!
Good morning my luvs!
Today I’ve got the first DIY tutorial for my COME THROUGH Holiday Hair Series. If you’ll be attending a holiday party that’s going to involve a lot of dancing you’ll want to style your hair in a way that’s going to be really cute, but also secure. You don’t want to have to worry about curls falling or hair coming out of place. For your holiday events like this you should go with a “Flirty But Sturdy” style. And of course I’ve got one for you.
This look is super cute and flirty but will stay in place all night! Check out the DIY tutorial here to see how I got the look.
I wanted to share the video tutorial to my absolute favorite twist, pull & pin style variation that’s also one of my top 5 TJluvsbeingnatural styles ever!
Last week I was playing with twisted updos and created this!
Do you see this shape?! I absolutely adore this look. It’s so unique but eye catching. Well, it was voted the #1 style last week and so I’m happy to share just how easy it was for me to get this look. Check it out here
Today I’ve got a video tutorial for a unique updo from last week.
The circular shape and funnel feel of this look reminded me a lot of a twister. I just love the way it came out. This style was voted the #1 look of the week on Instagram last week.

I absolutely adore the look of structured hairstyles. They’re so clean and sleek. Last week I decided to rock a structured style of my own with this mega French roll.
This is just one of many structured styles of mine but a lot of them tend to be French rolls. Although they may seem limited in versatility there are tons of ways to wear them. Check out more on the versatility of French rolls here.
As for this look. Love, love it!
It’s not often that you’ll see me wearing a wash and go, but when I do you know I have to make it different! Last weekend I decided I wanted to define my curls. I used the Krystal Eco Styler Gel for definition.
This worked ok but I prefer the Olive Oil Eco Styler. It’s a lot more flexible. At any rate the next three days looked like this.
Day 1 – Messy curls
You can’t go wrong with messy defined curls. After all, that’s pretty much the point of a wash and go. It’s not often that I love day 1 hair but this was life!
Day 2 – High pompadour
Pompadours are one of my absolute favorite styles, so of course I decided to take my day 2 wash and go and throw it up into a bold high pompadour and pair it with some beautiful purple hues.
Day 3 – Head wrapped
A head wrap is a great way to take almost any style and give it some flare. That’s exactly what I did with my day 3 wash and go hair. Although I don’t have a how to on tying head wraps my lovely @nellynelle19 has a great tutorial on tying headwraps that I took some tips from. You can check it out here
I had a lot of fun with these looks. Which one do you like best?
