Natural Hair Up Do w Scarf

So my goal is to come up with some hairstyles for the awkward length. You know its about shoulder length and so curly it shrinks right above my ears so a wash and go fro doesn't exactly work for me right now. Ive noticed a lot of people cut their hair or get it shaped around this time, but I want to keep growing it so I can see how much it has grown once my one year anniversary comes up in 2013. So I hope you like the styles and I will try to keep thinking of some as my hair grows each month!

A Little Chilly Weather FROM H AND M

Happy Wednesday everyone!! We are experiencing a little bit of chilly weather here and I am loving it!! I got to wear my new H&M sweater which was buy one get one free (IE; 12.00). Now, that's shopping on a budget! I paired this up with my Just Fab Avanthi Riding boots and leggings from American Apparel  The best thing about this outfit was the makeup and nail polish from Avon. I will be doing a makeup tutorial using this eye shadow quad with in the week. When I put it on it was absolutely gorgeous!

One of A Kind Colorblocking

Some times yuo can go in Forever 21 and find some pieces that are one of a kind to that store. I got this outfit on mhy weekend getaway to Orlando. I loved the look of this pleated skirt and I love bird print. I was not incredibly sold on the look of them together, but I knew I wanted to give it a try!!

Boho Hairstyle with French Twist Headband

So I love doing "boho" type hairstyles because they are cute,simple, and require no heat. Now that my hair is growing I can get back to the basics that I love which is twisting and braiding to create cute hairstyles. I am in that "awkward" stage right now so I cant do much, but I have faith that I will not be tempted to flat iron or cut my hair (get it shaped). Right now I measured it and its 6 inches long. I am 9 months post big chop. The YouTube Video

This hairstyle was achieved with no hair gel. I used the Carol's Daughter products which I reviewed 2 weeks ago.

Weekend Blog:Esperanza Spalding Concert

So these are the pics for my weekend blog. My husband and I got to go to a jazz concert by the beach and the headliner was Esperanza Spalding. Some people may not know her for her music, but because she has natural hair and usually rocks a picked out afro. Either way, the performance was great!
