“Fake It Til You Make It”


Yesterday, you may have noticed this lovely little updo in the pictures that I shared from the One World, Many Naturals Natural Hair Expo. Well, of course when I saw it, I had to ask how it was done! The beautiful “model,” Brittany of Herbalocity, graciously obliged by providing me with the name of the YouTuber and video that inspired her style.

You’ll note that the inspiration style included a swoop. But Brittany advised me that she was in a rush that day, so she just did the twist, bun and kept it moving! And, it still turned out beautifully. Just goes to show that you can give you own twist out of creativity, serendipity urgency or necessity and still come away with beautiful results!!

Have you faked it until you made it or would you?

  1. Yes ma’am! A while back, CurlyNikki had a post about her messy mom bun. I wanted the look, but my hair is not long enough or thick enough for a bun. So, I “improvise” by taking some curly hair and winding it around one of those donuts used to make buns while my hair is in about three or four twists. I remove my twists, make a ponytail, thread the ponytail through the donut, spread my hair over the donut, securing it with an elastic band and some bobby pins. It is quite a cute look if I must say so myself!
