If you’ve been preggers, you know how much energy you DON’T have for the normal, everyday stuff. This being the case, I decided to do a quick, simple rolled bun for my maternity photo shoot which was inspired by v/blogger Cassandre Beccai.
Due to our texture, certain styles may not quite do what we’d like them to. But there are a few simple styles you might be able to rock no matter what your texture! Check these out.

Whether you plan a head wrap as part of your outfit or you snatch one up in an attempt to right a hairdo gone wrong, they’re a great way to protect your hair while still looking fierce! These days we’re grabbing everything from bright and bold Ankara print fabric to simple solids and donning fancy headdresses on just about any occasion. For those who are head wrap challenged, I thought I’d share a few helpful tutorials. Watch, learn and practice… it makes perfect (or close enough LOL!). The first one is a revamp from my girl Danni. Not at all shy about wearing bold colors, she can be seen in some of the flyest printed scarves and wraps on her Instagram page. Next up: The Wrap Life. With gorgeous handmade prints to suit just about any taste, this Brooklyn-based shop has been a huge wrap go-to for women around the world over the past year. I love that they don’t just sell the wraps and hope you figure something out but they go the extra step and give you some ideas. Here’s my fave: Danni also has some ideas on how to wear The Wrap Life wraps here! If you wanna dress up a topknot, braids or twists, you might find this video from Chescalocs to your liking! Pay close attention to the end where she fills you in on the “secret” to finding scarves for wrapping.

Sure, any season is a good season to wear a protective style. But when that air starts to get cooler, I like to put the fro away for a while and rock some low maintenance dos. Not only do they save me time during the seasons when I like to do my hair the least but they aid in the overall health of my hair. Here are four of my favorite fall protective styles! Twisted Fauxhawk w/ Pompadour This is my favorite fancy-ish protective style. Definitely a go-to when I have a special affair to attend with limited time to do my hair. Marley Hair and I have become the best of friends ’cause it’s the perfect “fake it til you make it” synthetic hair for updos, blending in SO well with my natural texture. The style looks a lot more complicated than it is. Believe it or not, once my hair is prepped (washed, stretched) the style itself takes me no more than thirty minutes to do. It was just right for this fall photo shoot with Danielle Finney back in 2012. Wanna see how it’s done? I GOTCHU BOO!!! Clickity click >>> HERE! Marley Twists This was the very first set of Marley Twists I had ever done. They were on the small side but that made for lots of versatility in styling. Buns have been my thing since relaxer days so that wasn’t gonna change. But I also liked to do a half up/half down thing as seen in yesterday’s post. While I was able to do a lot with those twists, they took me soooooooo long to do! So I gradually moved on to doing them larger, a look that I adored anyhow. I wish I had a tutorial for you (I have one coming… eventually) but…
