This weekend I had the opportunity to go to a meetup hosted by The TrendySocialite AKA Adeea Rogers in Greenville, NC (check out her channel on Youtube by clicking here). While there she showed us how to achieve 3 different looks with a protective style she's currently rocking. One of the looks she demonstrated incorporated the use of Marley braiding hair. I was in the process of looking for a protective style for this week so it was right on time.
The first look is my attempt at creating a recent hairstyle that Youtuber BlackOnyx77 posted . I wore this style to church this past Sunday.
Step 2. Took 1 package of Marley Braiding hair and looped sections around my bun. (see video below for demonstration.)
Step 5. While this above style was regal & gorgeous, it added about 4 inches of height to my already 6'1 frame. To make it more manageable I removed the stuffing in the rear and wrapped the loose hair around "my" bun to create a bun flatter to my head. I wore this style to work on Tuesday. To preserve this style at night, I simply wrap a scarf around my head and under the front bang. I reposition/shape the bang in the morning, making sure any bobypins that moved that night are secured & go!
For those of you who are like me and are visual, here are videos showing how to recreate these styles.
This is the bun I used on the 2nd style. I may recreate this exact style using the below tutorial next week, just to change it up a little. I'm just trying to keep my hair protected from the cold weather & well as stay fly and cute doing it! Natural hair IS versatile!
