It’s been so crazy! My family and I just moved into our forever home, renovations are still going on so I’m living in a bit of chaos, AND on top of all that out of nowhere I decided to cut my hair. I’m talking like big chop!
But why right!?? I’ve got all the deets here. I absolutely adore my new short hair. I’ve been playing with my new short tresses working on different quick, creative and captivating style ideas. It’s been a challenge but y’all know how I love a challenge! Lots of new content to come for sure!
Sorry I’ve been gone a bit, but your girl back and working.
This week I decided to take one of the products from the October curlBOX for a drive. Of course curlBOX leveled up AGAIN with this months box and featured all full size products from one of my favorite product lines EVER! Quenching Coconut Curls by OGX.
I’ve been raving about this line for a year now and we’ll, nothing has changed! This is the most moisture rich live I’ve encountered. The products have so much slip and leave my hair hydrated and soft.
This time I decided to go with one of the products from the line I don’t use that often, the Curl Styling Milk.
I also decided to work with stretched hair which is also something I don’t do very often. The results were well…
Pretty awesome right!? Of course I have a talk through as I discover the results myself in a YouTube video. Check it out here.
As most of you know my husband is the one who originally did my undercut for me. He’s also kept it nicely maintained for over a year.
Well, this year I decided to venture out into the world of professional barber undercut slayage. I’ve had the privilege of having my undercut trimmed by both a male and a female barber and thought I’d run through some of they key things I noticed.
1. Ability – I can definitely say that both barbers that cut my hair are extremely talented. They both have great attention to detail and are extremely meticulous.
2. Creativity – I gave both barbers free reign over their designs. I wanted them to have the opportunity to get as creative as they wanted to. While both designs were crisp I did notice more detail in the design by the female barber.
3. Level of comfort – I consider myself to be someone who is comfortable with both men and women in general. However, in this particular case I did find myself to be more comfortable with the female barber, most likely I think because, she is a female. There was more conversation during the process and she was more personable.
Overall I was very pleased with the final look from both barbers and their professionalism was on point.
When it’s all said and done my overall barber preference is….hubby!! I know, I know, he’s not a barber by profession but I love having him be such a big part of my hair journey and he does a great job keeping my undercut clean. I’m so focused on style creativity and coming up with unique looks that having designs on my undercut just isn’t that important to me. Not to mention that hubby and I have a ton of fun together.
That’s it for now luvs.
A little late posting today, but I wanted to share this stand up twist out style with you guys.
I wore this style when hubby and I were at the Essence Festival in New Orleans and got a lot of love on this look.
So much so that I decided to do a tutorial on exactly how I achieve this stand up hair. I absolutely adore this style. It’s bold and edgy and makes me feel fearless!

Good morning luvs!
Today I’ve got a quick tutorial for a twisted updo. I did this style on slightly pressed hair, but it can be done on any type of textured hair. Slightly pressing my hair allows me to achieve some detailed looks that are really nice. Check out this one.
This style is nothing more than two flat twists. I love how intricate it appears though. If you’re interested in the step by step click here.
Happy Friday luvs!

Ya’ll know how much I love updos. What you might not know is how much I adore bangs! Yes, bangs. My love for the look isn’t constant but when I do want to wear the style I opt for these super cute faux bangs
I love this look. And yesterday I decided to pair it with a pin curl bun.
Pin curls are an easy way to make a bun more fun and creative. Of course I filmed a tutorial for this style. If you want to see exactly how I got it click here. That’s all for now! But first, a few more pics.
Good morning beauties❤️
Today I’ve got a vibrant spring time makeup look to share with you all. Spring is almost at its end but this look can easily transition over to summer. It’s a blue eyeshadow and pink lip combination.

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.
Happy Monday luvs!
