Ascot at 42 Months

I did this style with my Ascot head dress in mind. This is the back of my hair at 42 months.  I made some large twists to the mid back of my head using hair to secure the ends. My hair has curls from 5 days ago.

This is a side view of my dress, which was backless. I made some curly bangs to the left side of my face using medium sized perm rods.

 Front view of the dress, which also had a bustle.
 And of course my hat which was actually a fascinator.  

Hope you enjoyed these photos.

Wrap a loc Take Down

Just to remind you above is the result of freshly washed locks. I was 6 weeks post re tightening and was due.  This picture shows the right side of my hair which was twisted over on itself.

 Left side of my hair with wrap a locs installed.
 Close us shot.  I found the wrap a locs very easy to sleep in especially as they became looser over time.  They left my hair stretched.  I have thin hair so like to wear curls to give my locks body and these wrap a locs did the trick.  I was left with tight, Shirley temple, curls which lasted the whole week through gym work outs and until I washed my hair.
 They were easy to take out, this side shot is after a work out and I had inadvertently rinsed my hair before I remembered I had to post these shots, hence the straighter hair at the back but the curls were still present.
Close up.  Next time I will make sure that I have my re tightening done first so that I can keep them in longer.  I loved the wrap the  loc system as a quick and long lasting, 2 style option for curling my locks.
Hope you enjoyed this and don't forget to comment.  Kittylocks x

Afro Hair and Beauty Show 2011 Part 1

Hi there I was asked by a friend to be a model for the Afro Hair and Beauty Show 2011 held in Islington over the recent bank holiday.  We were supporting one of two natural hair stands at the show courtesy of Ansylla from which provides holistic hair care.  See here for her picture and her site.
 Of course one cant be seen modelling without the appropriate clothing. Above is PJ from Distinctive Darlings who provided our afrocentric clothing.  Sorry I was too busy to get any pics of me wearing one of her outfits.
 I attended with freshly washed unstyled locks and was given the wrap a lock treatment by Sistah Nandi who is the inventor of this product. see This is me with little make up. I had a great time meeting new people and stayed much later than I had planned and left very tired and hungry as there was no time to eat!
 I don't usually wear a lot of make up as I have very sensitive skin and only wear one brand, Mary Kay.  Enter Curtis make up artist for and this was my final look.
I went to work yesterday and today feeling like a Queen and floating.

I got comments like "you have blue eyes", "your hair style really opens up your face", I have to keep staring at you", "that hair takes years off you", "please make sure you wear this style all the time because it really suits you".

I wish I could.  My hair is sheduled to be re tightened on Saturday, 2 days left to wear my hair like this so unfortunately I will have to take them down.

Pics of this will follow.

Enjoy and keep the natural hair growing naturally.
