Hair of the Week: Mini Twists

Image

Greeting lovelies! A more appropriate name for this post might be Hair of the Weeks. Sunday I spent hours upon hours styling my hair into mini twists. The style, though time consuming, is a great protective style for natural hair and it is meant to last a long time. Perfection for my busy schedule! So its been a couple days already, but I plan on keeping this style for another 2-3 weeks. I only used Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In, the basic two strand twisting method, and LOTS of patience to achieve this style. Its my first time doing the twists this small and I like them thus far. I like the way they coil up at the ends. The shrinkage with this hairstyle is crazy! My twist are literally more than twice the length they appear when I stretch one. I may stretch the twists out over time using braids or ponytails and see how they look that way. But I’m not too, too obsessive over length appearance.Anyways, enough of me being a Chatty Cathy! Here are a couple more pics where you can see the twists a little more clearly.

What do you guys think about this hairstyle? Love it? Hate it? Let me know!

Until Next Time!

Trendspotting: Forest Green

I can feel it guys. The big color for Fall 2012 is GREEN! Specifically a kind of forest and military green is coming in as a huge player in Fall makeup and wardrobe. This darker more muted green is perfect for Fall and when done right can look beautiful against any skin tone. It is in my opinion best complemented by browns and golds (great Fall staple colors as well). Take a look at some of the pictures I have compiled below, to inspire you to rock green right in the Fall season!

Hope you guys are inspired to “Go Green” this Fall! Until Next Time…

New Site Design: Your Thoughts?

Hello my lovelies! As many of you may have already noticed I have changed theFashionerrd site design a lot in the past few days. I liked the page before, but I felt it needed upgrading. I chose to design it as I have now in an effort to make the page a little more unisex and all-encompassing.However, I love my followers and I want to know what you all favor better. Your opinions definitely matter! So, I ask that you all take a moment to answer the poll below in relation to the changes to theFashionerrd. If you guys have more detailed observations to make, please feel free to do so in the comments.

Until Next Time!
