So in the spirit of Valentine’s Day I decided to so a styling video for a “Date Look”. (I think I might potentially do a second styling option – depending on if I will have time to record and edit in time before V-day).
I am keeping it simple (as always) and quick. The style looks quite “chic” a little edgy and works as a protective style as well so overall I like it! I also kept my product use simple too (once again as always).
So without further-ado let’s go!
- Wide Tooth Comb
- Soft Bristle Brush
- Bobby Pins
- Hair Bubbles
- Hair Elastics
- Dye Brush (pointy part to section my hair)
- DIY Spray Leave-In Conditioner
- Argan Oil
- Cantu Moisturizing Twist & Lock Gel
It is easier to watch a demonstration rather than read how I did the style:
Tip: for those with shorter hair, you can use braiding hair to do this style by adding it to the middle and bottom section, and twisting your hair together with it. I would recommend either doing a loose flat twist with the pompadour section go backwards or just making three sections, add braiding hair to all three and then make two – two strand twists within each sections. (You will need to watch the video so that this is clearer).
Tip: In case you don’t want to redo the style in the morning my suggestion is to take down the bobby pins (it is never a comfortable night with them in and not necessarily a good idea). Use a scarf to cover your hair, paying attention to your edges and side; for a smooth look in the morning and then just re-pin the twists down. You might need to “touch up” your edges with a soft bristle brush but other than that, it should be fine!
So here is my “final look”. Like I said, if I can I will do another styling option too and hopefully have it up before the 14th!
Whether you have a Valentine or not, are celebrating or not, I hope you manage to have a lovely day Maicurlies!
