New Year’s Eve Hairstyle
2014 was a truly FANTASTIC year for my hair! I can’t say how much I’ve learnt to love my hair, its texture and every aspect that makes it mine. As I look back at my year in hair, I see the joy at experiencing growth, I see the struggles when I encounter difficulties but I also see the triumph when I have major accomplishments.
Last year, some of my proudest moments were:
- I had some amazing twist outs early 2014
- I tried finger coils TWICE
- I had cornrows installed – stylishly
- I started and completed the Castor Oil Challenge
- I learnt to install havana twists
- I achieved my first high bun
- I experimented with tuck, roll & pin styles
- I did an extraordinary amount of protective styles
I also had a few regrets and the worst of which were:
- I experimented with hair growth vitamins; which may have caused…
- My hair texture changed. No more chunky/flat twist outs😦
Going into 2015, I am officially in the in-between stage where my hair is too long to just “leave it and go” but not long enough to achieve more advanced styles. However, I still plan on doing mainly updos this year. I will either continue to part my hair two horizontally and pull into two high ponytails to form my bun or do a kinky blow out so that my hair stretches enough to pull into a single ponytail without stressing my edges. I’ve purchased 2# packs of marley braids to form my updos so I am truly excited for 2015.
