Social distancing seems to be the name of the game these days and at the Black Hair Hub, we are all in favour of playing it. Home quarantine is the need of the hour and staying safe and keeping our family safe is the only way to defeat COVID 19 and put these days behind us. But But But…. Staying locked in doesn’t mean that it has to be boring…well at least not for your locks. So instead of spending your day lazing around in your PJs or with your eyes glued to your laptop or phone, why not use this time to perfect a style you always wanted to age. Well what d’ya know, those deceptively tough hairstyles, may not be that tough after all!
Ladies, this puff hairstyle is sure to make even Princess Jasmine jealous. Starting with simple cornrows at the crown and finishing with a brilliantly accessorized puff braid has got our hands eager to give this a try. The best thing about this style is that though it may look like a tough one to crack, it’s actually super simple. The deceptiveness of this hairstyle lies in the way the puffs are accessorized. So to recreate this “tough’ hairstyle”, slip-on three beads onto three strands of hair after each secured rubber band. Repeat this step until your entire length of hair is styled into puffs. The addition of the beads lends a cascading feature that will give your overall look an aura of femininity embellished with feisty. We’ve tried this hairstyle ourselves and it took us a few times to get it right. From our learnings, take note that a great gel is what you need to be armed with before you attempt this style. Our pick was the African Pride Black Castor Miracle Extra Hold Braid, Loc, Twist Gel – What a complete time and style- saver! When it comes to taming frizz and ensuring a long-lasting style – this product is the bomb! You don’t even need to worry about applying tons of product during the practice phase. We think it helps big time that this product is packed with black castor oil and coconut oil, both of which provide our curls with nothing but goodness. The combination of ingredients strengthens your hair and promotes hair growth as well. So we don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t give this a try!
If you’ve been intuned with our pages, we bet you know about a contest that we recently threw open. We told all you lovely ladies to send in your best hairdos. And the response? We got some of the most mind-blowing and innovative and intricate of hairstyles from you. And while many made it to our compilation of ‘Must-Try Hairstyles’ book, among these gems, we found this absolute beauty of a hairstyle. Simple yet beautiful, this low bun hairstyle is probably perfect for any future costume party. (And we guess, It’s never too early to start practising right?). The addition of wool to the braid is definitely something that lifts this hairstyle, even more, lending a playful tone. It also adds an element of fun to any and all outfits (Pick your colour as per, girls) Trust us when we say that we’ve mixed and matched outfits with this hairstyle, really maxing out our quarantine time.
With all these tips and hairstyles to experiment with, you’re sure to come out of the social distancing period looking fabulous. So, what are you waiting for? Get styling ladies!
