At the beginning of my natural hair journey, my signature style was the haut afro puff. Since some months, I have been rocking more a high bun. I have more hair and because of my colored ends, I keep them protected as often as possible. I also do other hairstyles specially some dos inspired by celebrities. Look at these three following:
Look # 2- Esperanza Spalding sided pinned up front puff at the Grammy Awards in 2010. I usually braid my hair two nights before , unravel the braids, volumize the hair with an afro pick, use some Eco styler gel to smoothe my edges and YAAAY: I get my Esperanza S. look.
Look # 3- Janelle Monae pinned up pompadour signature do. I just tried that one. The night before, my hair was a mess. I was too tired to take care of it, I then just wore my satin bonnet and went to bed. The next morning, full of guilt, I woke up earlier, section my hair, spritz it with water, applied some Taliah Waajid African Healing Oil and pinned up my hair. To get a bigger pompadour, I added some Marley hair and twist it with my hair.
Hopefully, my video camera will be here soon and I will be able to provide you useful tutorials for my hairstyles. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures 🙂
