Refreshing Red Haircolor!

Greetings, to to all! Got a haircolor video to share! I’m so forgetful when it comes to taking a photo of the final look! I promise I’m going to do better!

I lifted her roots to a level 6/7 and refreshed her red color using two parts #Igora L-89 and one part #Chi 8RR with 30 volume. I rodded her with red, yellow and pink perm rods for a tight long lasting curl. Check it out! I hope you like!

Big Chop and Braids!

Greetings, everyone! I wanted to share a short video of a big chop I did earlier this week!

I had a client with natural hair that had been wearing sew-ins and for a while and had damaged parts of her hair from using flat irons. She wanted all the damage gone and the rest of her hair cut to an even length. We followed that with feed-in braids to give her a low maintenance style while growing re-growing her hair.

I used shears to cut her hair and used Hair Garden’s Mint cleanser and Mango Punch Conditioner. We are looking forward to returning her to a full, healthy head of hair!

Please post any questions or comments and thanks for visiting my blog!

Hairstyles for Natural Hair (video)

Greetings, lovely people! I put together a compilation of some of my favorite styles that I have done over the past year or so. Check it out and like and share if you liked anything you saw!

Short Hair with Flare!

Greetings, everyone! I thought I shared my new hair journey with you all! Obviously, I did not! Well, back in January, I’m thinking Jan. 15 to be exact, I made my mind up that I was ready to cut my hair. I had been admiring some fierce fades and short cuts with popping colors lately (like the one above😍).

Being a new mom I basically had zero time for my hair. No more time for home made treatments and sealing my ends whenever I felt like it. Wash day and detangling was a headache and I was experiencing a lot of shedding. I’m thinking postpartum hair loss was a contributing factor. My new growth was so much thicker than my ends so attemping to wear a fro was just a sad experience.

My scalp was also starting to suffer. I was wearing braids for the longest out of convenience and not cleansing like I should. I felt like my hair and scalp was basically in bad condition! I had the length I always wanted but couldn’t do anything with it so what was the point?

Fresh from the barbershop!

I am loving the cut. Right now, I am aiming to grow a mohawk. Maybe more like a faux hawk as you can see in the last pic I posted. I’m having fun with the designs too! I want to try all types of cuts and colors now!

1st design. Loved it!

I told the barber to get creative. I know you can’t tell but it’s purple up top💜

I’m going to do a separate post about how I maintain my shorter do so stay tuned for that! In the meantime, I made a short video with more details about my experience! You can see where i started and my final results! Check it out!

Thank for stopping by! See you soon!

Mohawk Madness!

Hello, out there! I’ve got some lovely hairstyles style to share with you. I absolutely love doing mohawk hairstyles and I have a couple of variations to share with you!

Cornrows with crochet!

The style above was executed with cornrows on the sides and bulk hair croched in the middle. Low maintenance hair style that lasts her about a month!

Pinned up mohawk
Mohawk before it’s pinned up!

The style you see above is simply cornrowed on the sides and two strand twisted in the center with afro braid hair. I love this style because of the versatility. You can wear it down or pin it up!

Rod Set on Tapered Natural Hair

Hello, lovely people! Just wanted to share this beautiful roller set I did last week! This client wears a tapered haircut and usually gets it pressed. She wanted to try a style that would make it through the heat and unpredictable rain so we did this lovely rod set!

She only had to sit under the dryer for about 45-50 minutes and has a lovely set that will last her almost up to 2 weeks! I used a combination of (from the bottom up)  yellow, pink, grey and purple rods and Kera Care setting lotion. After rods were removed, I separated the curls with end of a rat tail comb! Simple but beautiful!

Hope you like this cute style! Thanks for stopping by!

Stay Stylish in the Summer with Flat Twists and Rod Sets!

Stay stylish this summer and beat the heat with these lovely flat twist updos combined with rod sets! These two ladies are very active and were looking for a low-maintenance updo style that they could wear for a week or two.

This style is simply a large flat twist and rod set combo. The hair was parted at the crown and a spiral set was created with a combination of the pink and grey perm rods. I used Kera Care setting lotion. She sat under the hooded dryer for about 45-60 minutes for the curls to dry (she has thick hair!).

This style was created similarly but with smaller flat twists. The free hair at the crown was two-strand twisted and then the ends were set with the pink perm rods. She only had to sit under the dryer for about 10 minutes for the curls on the end to set!

I would love to see your version of this style!  Thanks for stopping by!
