As many of you know (or may not know), I quit my corporate job back in July and since then I have started an apprenticeship to obtain my Cosmetology License while also working as a Natural Hair Stylist & Loctician. So far, my experience has been amazing, beyond amazing honestly! I have been able to connect with so many beautiful women and even a few readers of my blog, which has been really cool to say the least!
Even though I am in the early stages of my career in Cosmetology, I see the need to reconnect the Salon/Hair Stylist to women with Natural Hair. I've heard so many women exclaim about bad experiences within a Salon and encountering Stylist that don't know how to or, dare I say, care to take of natural hair. I think that is ludicrous. Natural hair is beautiful, more versatile, and manageable with patience, at least in my opinion but I could go on about that topic forever. I really wanted to share a few hairstyles on natural hair that I've done lately...
This is a Flexi-Rod set that I did on her almost shoulder length curls. A Flexi-Rod set is a great low maintenance style for relaxed, natural and transitioning hair...all you do is wear a bonnet at night and go in the morning!
This is a Braided Updo with Extenstions added for fullness. I had a lot of fun creating this style because she wanted a design as well as a full & high bun. Again this is a great low maintenance / protective style for natural hair that'll last a few weeks.
This is a Flat Twist & Perm Rod Set on natural hair that is shoulder length hair. Her curls came out so soft & bouncy after this style!
This was another fun Braided Updo style with Two-Strand Twist bangs. I recreated a style she showed me on her phone and added my own spin on it by creating a basketweave with the twists in the back.
I wanted to share a few styles that I created to show you just how versatile and beautiful natural hair. You don't have to be restricted to two-strand twists and twist-outs all the time.
When was the last time you went to a Hair Salon? How was your experience?
