3 Strand Twist Tutorial for Naturally Curly Hair

Curl Pride World Wide!!!

Here's another curly hair tutorial and this one is for 3 Strand Twists which is a protective style and I love it cause it looks pretty darn killer.

I have Type 3C to 3B Coily and Spirally hair and this technique still works on my hair giving me ropes of shiny dread like tresses.


Enjoy!

Day 4 Twists

GRWM Mad Max Fury Road inspired Makeup ft Sugarpill, Inglot & Born Pretty

I went to see the new Mad Max movie and wanted to create my own brand of inspired Road Warrior makeup look. It’s not a direct replication of anything anyone would wear in the movie, but more a war paint that I would slather on my face before battle on the road in a post apocalyptic wasteland where I had access to some red black and orange dust.... and I guess a few sticks to use as makeup brushes or something.

I also created a matching red and black distressed nail design which you can check out over yonder.
