My Inspiration Looks

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 #1- Jennifer Lopez Sophisticated bun in “Maid in Manhattan” on her night out with the Senate candidate.  I made an Afro Puff and a friend of mine did the guirlande like bun for me. 

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 🙂
