Beauty: Lets Not Forget About Hair!

Today I thought about something that I haven’t talked about in any of my beauty posts and that’s hair. Hair is a part of every woman’s beauty regimen so I figured it was about time I gave it some spotlight. I have had relaxed hair since the 4th grade and this year I made the decision to go natural. My last relaxer was in February of this year and I plan to do the big chop in February of 2014. Even though its been almost a year I’ve been having reservations but hopefully by February I’ll be able to overcome my fear. In my previous posts I have Marley Twists installed in my hair. I did them myself and I was so proud of myself! It took me about 2 days because I had to go to work in between. I kept them in for about a month and when I took them out yesterday I needed a new protective hairstyle. I remember seeing YouTube tutorials about updos with the Marley Hair used to create the twists so I decided to recreate one of those looks with one of my extra packs of Marley Hair. Here’s the final result!

P.S.-These are some of the first shots I took with my new camera!

This is the tutorial I used to create this bun



Fun: Check out Mo&Mi!

I just had to tell you about two amazing girls that are not only D.I.Y. at its’ finest, but an inspiration to me as well. Even though we are the same age, I see them as role models and I’m so thankful to be able to call them my friends. Keren (Monse) and Miriam are two young ladies that have started their own business making beautiful handmade hair bows for girls of all ages. Not only do they make hair bows, they make headbands and hair clips as well. Despite a demanding school schedule they still manage to find time to sell their hair accessories at local events, and maintain excellent grades. Their  business is not just about making money, they give back to the community as well. They even sent bows to young girls in Guatemala. Best of all these girls have a very strong faith in God and you can tell from their success that they are truly blessed. I fully believe that they will go very far in life, and will do great things. PLEASE check out their website and see about getting your hands on these lovely bows!
