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!
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 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!

Greetings, all! I did a follow-up video to show you day 3 of my heatless perm rod set. This is my favorite point of the style. It is nice and full with wild and free curls here and there! It’s low maintenance and the look lasts until I am ready to wash it. I simply maintain it daily by applying some coconut oil or whipped shea depending on what my hair needs!
Hello, Lovelies! I wanted to share my most recent perm rod set with you all! I’m getting a little better each time with this video editing stuff so I hope you all enjoy! I am starting to enjoy doing this so there will be many more videos to come! Subscribe to my channel on YouTube!
Hello, lovely people! I learned from experience that letting others do my hair is not always the best idea. Some people can work with my hair and it is great and some people touch my hair and disturb my balance and my hair goes crazy! I’ve gone back to caring for it myself for the most part! I have been crazy over this deep purple braiding hair for a while now! I have don’t braids with it but not twists so I decided to go for Senegalese twists this time. I wanted to do them really small but it didn’t have enough time so I did what I could!
It took me 3 sessions along a period of 2 days to complete. All together. It probably took my about 8 to 10 hours. My routine is usually the same. I do the front section 1st, then the very back 2nd and the middle last! It makes the twists wearable even if I haven’t finished them yet! I wore them out on my birthday and no one could tell I wasn’t finished yet! Ha ha!
I prefer to keep them up un a bun but will wear them down more to take the stress off of my edges! I just don’t like the feel of braids or any hair against my skin for extended periods of time!
This style should last me 6 to 8 weeks but I plan on removing them in 4 to 6 weeks to give my hair a break since I’ve been wearing a lot of restrained styles this year. I shampoo the twists weekly and apply a light oil to my scalp and the length of the twists to protect my ends!
Hello, again! Just dropping in to share this hair style I created for this lovely young lady starting her 1st day of kindergarten! Styles for the youth are simple but so super cute! Check out this cornrow and 2-strand twist combo!
This is a quick and simple style that can be worn by all ages! I may try it on myself when I take these braids out! This look can last up to 2 weeks and only requires a light oil on the hair and scalp as needed!
