Chic Savant


Okay, I’ve been seeing Chic Savant “like” some of my fashion posts for a month or so now. But, I always see the “like” when I’m on my phone and can’t do a lot of blog hopping. But today I was actually home and clicked on her blog. Okay, can you say FABU HAIR and STYLE?!?!? Oh my gosh, her hair is like … yeah *wiping drool from mouth*! If you’re reading lady, Hair Crush HairStory please!!!! LOL!!

Anyway, here she is looking GORG, rocking one of my favorite pieces, a printed tie-neck blouse, with a popping yellow blazer, dark-wash skinny jeans and a neutral shoe! LOVES it!! I’ll definitely be following this Chic Savant from now on;)!


Jesse Boykins III


Did you see Wei’s interview of musical artist and naturalisto Jesse Boykins over at CurlyNikki.com (he’s like a CN correspondent now! *lol*)?! If you did, here are a few Q&As that didn’t make the cut! Actually, what really happened was … Wei found them after Nikki had already posted the interview. But, these were some goodies, so we wanted to share!

Q: Are there any natural hair styles that you like the best?
I love them all as long as the hairstyle is a reflection of the person who is wearing it. Natural hair is the best. It’s yours. It’s you!

Q: Have you ever dated a someone that had the “need “ to wear “headgear” to bed? How did/would you deal with that?
Yes … a scarf. And it was cool. You know, if you like the person and the scarf isn’t smelly or anything, then it’s cool. If it stinks or something, then you may have a issue. But that can be fixed by talking with each other. No biggie.

Q: OK. Now … what if you were walking through the grocery store and your S.O. (Significant Other) wanted you to re-up on some hair care products. Would you know what to pick up?
No! I wouldn’t even do it! There are so many natural hair care products and brands out there now. I’d have no idea. I’d get a list.

Another Simple Twisted Updo


I came across this video tutorial for a cute and simple twisted style on longhaircareforums.com about a week or two ago. I decided to try it last night!

via LuxyHair

The hardest part was making the sections around my face the right size so that I had enough hair to do three twists on either side. Also, I felt like I had too much hair in the last big twist that was rolled and tucked at the nape in the video. So, instead, I twisted the last two twists to the end and forming small buns that I secured at my nape with additional bobby pins.

I may place the back section into three big twists instead of two to form three mini-buns. I could also make one big bun with one twist or wrapping the two twists around each other. This is definitely a style that I’ll try again in order to play around with variations on the final section. This is another style that I think would work for a variety of lengths, from neck to TBL (with modifications)!
