September 10, 2011...Channeling My Inner Amber Rose

Nothing much is new. Still blonde.

I have had a hair cut since i did the first big chop. Today i am going to teach my dance class. I decided to put on some red lipstick with my houndstooth dress I ordered from I LOVE that site by the way.

 Anywho....yeah, that's it.

July 20, 2011...I Need Some Color

Sooooooo I got bored. Yep I am a blonde now. I like it tho. I used Dark and Lovely Fade-Resistant Rich Conditioning Color Permanent Hair Color, 396 Luminous Blonde. You know this is bad for your hair cause the box said DO NOT use if you have chemicals on your hair.... 


                                                During. Tried to do my brows....was not successful.


Makeup does wonders....

                                                      Different looks throughout the week:

Snake kept trying to go down my shirt!

My friend Patty Cake. He is so fly! (Literally he is...he is a pilot.)

July 18, 2011 BIG CHOP!!!!

 Le is time. I did another big chop. I did it because I was tired of my hair maintenece. I was actually seeing growth, it was down my back, but the upkeep was too much. Too much shea butter, olive oil, combing, twisting, protecting...too much. Natural hair is supposed to give me freedom, I was being locked in a upkeep routine. Also the hair color made my hair really dry and brittle. I knew that this would happen which is why I colored it cause I have been wanting to BC for a while.

So for now, It is gone.

The next pic was right after the big chop, which I did with scissors the day I took my braids down. I look pretty homeless lol.

Next this is my first wash with my big chop. It felt great :-)

Last pic, I put on a little makeup and was out for the evening. Got lots of compliments, and my BF likes it! But he pretty much like everything I do....I am lucky for that lol.

July 16, 2011 Braids

Last day with the braids. I could not come up with any creative structural way to do the loose ends so i just let them hang. I acutally liked the style the best.

July 14, 2011...Braid Rings

Day three of my experimenting with the braids. Today i rolled up the back again but instead made three loops at the top. I used bobbby pins to hold them in place. This is borderline ghetto lol.

July 13, 2011...Braided Spiral Galaxy

So of course I have to experiment with different hair styles...this one I call "Spiral Galaxy".

I just rolled up the back to the front and coiled the loose ends on my forehead. Another braided Mohawk style.

July 12 2011...I've Got Braids!!!

My boyfreinds sister came in from africa so of course I had to have her do me some braids!

They are going to the back and loose in teh middle. And she was such a great braider. Did not even hurt.

April 14, 2011...Feather Accessory

Trying new styles...I pulled the sides back and brushed Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie on them to slick them down. Then I two strand twisted the top part and pinned them back. Topped everything off with a black feather hair accessory.

I got the Accessory from one of my fave local shops Fire Finch. It is on 21st Ave in Nashville.

April 11, 2011...Headscarf

Continuing with the head scarf theme. This time i did a two strand twist the night before so it was kinda wavy and curly.
My hair is starting to look darker as well.

April 9, 2011...Headwrap

Today I used one of my head wraps that I bought a while back. My hair accessories seem to pop more against my blonde hair. I have a hump in the front and just wrapped the scarf around the back.

Later that night I had my fro out. I went to a party with friends.

April 8, 2011....Humpty Hump and Hair Color

I went ahead and colored my whole hair blonde. I am semi happy with the results. I did the bun roll thingy that i always do.

I wore the style later that night with a metallic flower headband. The headband is from Fire Finch in Nashville. Don't go there if you are allergic to cats....

I used Dark and Lovely in Light Golden Blonde. I did not turn out as light as the color on the box.

April 7 2011...Wiz Khalifa Patch and Bantu Knot-Out

I got bored so i colored a patch of hair students at the school where I work are saying it looks like Wiz Khalifa. LOL. Anyways, here are the pics. I like the color. I may do my whole head like this soon.

I used Dark and Lovely Hair Color in Honey Blonde...not quite honey blonde but almost.

The other side is twisted into the poof. To get the curly look I two strand twisted my hair and then put the twists into bantu knots.

I did a blow out, then got in the shower so my hair could nap up some, then put Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie on the sides and back, then used combs to hold it up around the side and back. Easiest style I have ever did in my life :-)
