My Go To Protective Style

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!

Mini Twist Bantu Knot Out

Hi luvs!

My favorite style from wearing mini twists last month has got to be my Bantu knot out. I always struggle doing this style but with twists it was so much easier! And the curls, the curls came out beautifully. 

   
 I used the same typical method for the knots and I can definitely say that I’ll be doing this style again. 

   
 
Plus, the definition lasted for days!

Mini Twists – Products, Tips & More

Hi Beauties,

Last month I decided to install mini twists in preparation for the new baby. I didn’t want to have to spend time thinking about my hair, but still wanted a style that was chic. Mini twists were the answer. Check out my video talking about the products I used some installation tips and more here. Loved rocking these twists!

   
 

5 Extraordinary Crown Braids

Good morning beauties!

This morning as I was styling my hair I had the same thought that I have every morning “How can I take an ordinary style and make it extraordinary?” I am always looking for unique was to take typical styles to the next level.  It’s all part of that whole style innovation that I love. 

Well today I decided to go for another unique rendition of the crown braid. I’ve taken a shot at this a couple of times before and although very different and may not be to everyone’s taste I’ve adored all of them. 

While the standard crown braid focuses on framing your entire head with one single braid or twist I either add some unique aspects to that method or literally try to envision a crown and duplicate that look. Here’s are 5 of my most extraordinary crown braids (twists).

Different right!? So the next time you go to style your hair try to think of a way you can add a little flare to it and make it your own. 

Perfect For Twists & Edges

Good morning Luvs!

Today I wanted to share with you all two products that I am absolutely loving for twisted styles and taming my edges. 

So, you all know how much I adore twisted styles. There are a couple of different variations of twists I like to work with. One is a loose chunky twist that helps me achieve great dimension and the second is more secure twists that I often use to form different shapes like I talked about yesterday. 

I’ve found myself wanting to experiment more with secure twists and the product I am absolutely loving for those styles is Dark & Lovely’s Easy Twist Gel ‘N Butter. 



I was introduced to this product in my February curlBox and I’ve been loving it ever since. It is amazing for making my twists look nice and moisturized with a light but secure hold. It is literally the perfect blend of gel and butter. 

Although I’m not big on extremely tamed edges (I love my texture), I have started trying to play with slightly tamed edges. For that I’ve found that Creme of Nature’s Perfect Edges works great!



I was also introduced to this product by curlBOX in the most recent MAY-KOVER box. Probably the best thing I love about this product is how smoothly it spreads and the shine! LOVE! 

I used both the Easy Twist Gel ‘N Butter as well as the Perfect Edges on today’s hair and adore the results. I’ll definitely continue using these two products perfect for twists and edges :o)

If have to say that the best of the week for me was Tuesday’s look. I loved the shape of this style. I had a bit of an edgy look going on that day and it just all came together nicely in my opinion. What’s your favorite?
