My 2017 Hairstyles

2017 was definitely the year of change in numerous aspects of my life. One aspect in particular was my hair!

I tried sooo many unique and fun hairstyles this year. Below is a timeline of all of my 2017 hairstyles.

February – Bantu Knots

This look made me feel powerful, bold, and more in tune with my african american culture.

March – 2 braids

I tried out a simple look that required little upkeep.

May – Shoulder length bob with bangs

My first wig ever!! I wanted a look I never had before and so I went for it and loved it. Everybody thought I straightened my real hair which meant the wig looked super realistic.

June – Side frohawk

Using bobby pins on my natural hair I pinned part of my hair down and let the other side go free!

July – 4 cornrows

I loved this look because it gave me a 90s Alicia Keys vibe.

September – Lemonade braids
Beyonce inspired braids slicked to one side. This look too a while to do but was definitely stunning.

This was the month I moved to LA so I wantrd something modern, trendy, and fun so I went with this Minnie Mouse-esque looked.

November – Flat twist out

For my birthday, I wore my natural hair and rocked my twist outs, which surprisingly turned out a lot better than I thought.

New Growth Post

It’s a warm winter day in Baltimore today! I hope everyone is enjoying the weather where they are or at least staying as warm as possible!

Today’s post focuses on natural hair ❤ I have been natural for almost 2 years now and it is one of the best decisions I made for my hair!

It is healthier, thicker, and longer than ever before. Below you will see shots of my 4c fro ❤

My Natural Hair Journey

It’s been a little over a year since I cut all of my hair off and went natural. I am excited about how far I have come and even more excited about the future of my hair. This will be a short post because all I wanted to share my progress with my lovely readers ❤

natural hair journeyBox 1: This a picture of me from the day of my Big Chop. My hair was supeerrrr short and I was a little worried about how I looked for a while. I eventually grew into it and fell in love with my short look. It was easy to manage and I knew that it would be growing shortly. This was taken in March of 2014.

Box 2: This picture is from my Bear with Honey post and features me sporting one of my favorite natural hairstyles, twist-outs! My hair has grown soooo much in just a year and I am really proud of my growth 🙂 Can’t wait for it to grow longer!

Box 3: This is a very recent picture and this is a picture of me with my hair straightened! I haven’t had my hair straight in over a year. I am happy to see how long it is because I am so use to seeing it up in the air rather than laid down (lol). I am enjoying my straight hair, but I am starting to miss my puffy and curly hair, so it will probably be back to my fro in a couple of days ^-^

Box 4: This is just a really cool picture and shows a character with gorgeous natural hair. I think that this photo inspires strength and confidence for all women in general and of course, women with natural hair.

I hope everyone enjoyed my hair update post and I hope you all have great Thursdays ❤ It’s almost Friday!!!
