Updo - almost 14-month mark

Greetings Everybody.

Tuesday, I will be at the 14-month mark. And I got the "I need to do something different with my hair or Ima do something drastic like cut it all off" urge. So, as fate would have it, I went to nappy headed black girl's page &, whaddaya know, she had a vid of someone tutorializing, don't try to patent my word, a short updo.

Now, I will forewarn you by saying that my style is not exactly like the one in the vid. However, it gave me an idea & I free-styled the rest. So, check out the tute, ck out my pics, then let me know whatcha think? K?

Voila!! Frontal view

Oh, I almost forgot to mention one key component to this whole thing....I did this without being able to see the back of my head. A few weeks ago my handheld mirror just poof and disappeared. Nooobody has seen it. Kinda strange to me, but I digress. Anyhoo, I think I did an ok job to not have been able to see what the heck I was doing back there. I am going to buy another mirror in the very near future, though. But until then....

  3. I am LOVIN this!!!

    What kind kind of pins did you use? 'Coz I'm totally frustrated with bobby pins. They last maybe 2 or three uses b4 that liitle ball that's supposed to protect the hair starts to come off and get caught in the hair.

  5. thanks so much everybody. i got so many compliments on this hairstyle, including one from my hubby...which is quite rare considering he wishes i would remove all my locs & go back to straight hair --not gonna happen. lol.

    msfullroller, i used the open pins; the ones without the "protective ball" on the ends. those ones irk me anyway. lol. i think i used maybe 4-5 pins tops.
