Accessorizing My Hair – Video on YouTube

Good Evening Maicurlies,

I am trying to get my act together and record more videos/write more posts (I am sorry I have been M.I.A I will do better!)

I do have a few things lined up so to get the ball rolling I made a video on how I use ribbons to accessorize. I already made a short post about the ribbons I bought (with the intention of using them on some dresses) but  never explained how I “dress up” a simple chunky twist:

Twist without Ribbon

Like this:

Twist with Ribbon

It really is a simple style and does not require a lot of explanation but I always “learn” by seeing and doing so I figured why not record a video right? As always I have the video up on my YouTube Channel and here on my Blog’s Video Page. I will write a quick post on the step by step process as well.

Do you use ribbons to accessorize? I would love to hear from you! 




Ribbons as a Hair Accessory

Hi Maicurlies,


I bought a couple of ribbons the other day because I had initially wanted to use them to accessorize a few dresses. I then got to thinking what about using them for my hair!  


To do the above:

  • I just put my hair in a big chunky two strand twist
  • Secured the twist with two hair bubbles; one at the base the other at the end
  • Took a strip of my ribbon and placed it over the base of my twist wrapping it around once
  • Then crisscrossed the ribbons down the length of my twist
  • The ends were tied over the hair bubble

I do not know about you but I really like how the ribbon can make a simple big twist look a little more “chic”. Well actually, I do not know if “chic” is really the right word but I feel that it makes a difference in the appearance of a twist. I have red, white and black ribbons two different sizes (I might have to go back and get the super thin ones as well!)

I also plan on using the bigger ribbon as a “head band” to cause some distraction from my forehead :D! So it will be “play with ribbon time” :).
