Style Inspiration: Retro 70s Cornrows, Beads & Cowrie Shells

Standard

Pinterest be damned. LOL!! Okay, if you don’t know about Pinterest, it’s this website that allows you to create awesome virtual pin boards for all your favorite things. I discovered it, because people have “pinned” things from Hairscapades to their boards as you can see here where there are Pins from Hairscapades.

Anywho, Pinterest seems frickin’ AWESOME. But, I refuse to sign up and get sucked into the obsession as I already spend far too many hours online maintaining the blog, the FB page, Twitter and reading other natural hair blogs. I just can’t sign-up for one more thing that will be an excuse for me to procrastinate and spend even more hours online. I mean, for goodness sake, I already stay up to midnight every night! Pinterest will have me pulling all-nighters! So, I refuse to get sucked in! LOL!!

That being said, I do LOVE to lurk there:)! LOL!! And, I see the most amazing hair and styles! So, yesterday, when I saw this crazy, sexy, cool style of a friend on FB, I had a brain blast! I’ll make my own Pinterest “pin board” on Hairscapades and I’ll call it, “Style Inspiration” and place it under the “Style Library” tab. This will be a place where I’ll share pictures of styles that I love, but for which I don’t necessarily have tutorials.

I’m hoping that you’ll be inspired to recreate these styles yourself or that you might bring them to your hairdresser/braider to try. Ooooh, oooh, ooooh!! And then, if you do that, you can submit a picture of the style to Hairscapades!! I’ll add your picture(s) to the original corresponding “Inspiration Style” post to show how the style was interpreted and looks on you! Also, if you do or find a style that you think is so awesome and needs to be shared with the world ;), you can send it in for consideration for this feature as well!

Retro 70s Cornrows, Beads & Cowrie Shells

So, without further ado, here is the debut of Style Inspiration! Our first styles are ones inspired by Thelma of Good Times (as pictured above)!! My girl Jordan from DC posted them on FB! When I saw her pics, I didn’t realize that the first one was a recreation of an actual Thelma’s style! I just thought that they were so cool, edgy and 70s retro.

So, what do you think? Would you rock a retro 70s cornrow style?
