I Made A YouTube Channel!

Happy Friday lovelies!

The weather is beautiful, I’ve been keeping busy with work and focusing on some of my goals!

One of my goals that I finally achieved was starting a youtube channel. Since I want to be a fashion correspondent, I need some “on-air” experience so a Youtube channel is the perfect way to get some!

On my channel I plan on discussing hair, beauty, fashion, and lifestyle, similar to what I discuss right here on Coral Buttons.

I hope that my channel gets me one step closer to fulfilling that fashion reporter dream and not only that, I also hope that my channel can be a source of encouragement to anyone who needs it.

I plan to include positive, inspirational, and uplifting messages in every video! Only one video is up for now, but don’t worry more fun and fashionable videos are in the future.

Have an amazing weekend!

Get the Look: Turban Head Wrap

Today I am starting a new segment called “Get the Look.” My “Get the Look” posts will demonstrate how all of my beautiful readers can recreate an outfit or accessory I am wearing.

The “look” for today is the Turban Head Wrap. Let’s find out how to get this look!

Step 1: Grab a scarf equivalent to the length of your body.
I am 5’7 and my scarf almost touches the ground when I hold it vertically from my face, so the scarf has to be super long!

Step 2: Lay the scarf across your head, with the two sides of the scarf being as close to equal as possible.
Yes, this step does look a little funny, but it will all make sense soon!

Step 3: Grab the two sides and bring them to the front of your head.
Seems simple enough, right?

Step 4: Take the two sides you brought to the front and twist them around each other.
One side in front of the other. Over and over again until you run out of scarf to twist.

Step 5: Take your twisted part and wrap it around in a swirling motion.
Make this as tight or as loose as you wish. The tighter the swirl the bigger the front part will be.

Step 6: Now you are all done and it looks lovely!

And for all of you visual learners, here is a video that can help break down the steps for you.

I hope you enjoyed my first ever “Get the Look” post. Try out this style and tell me how it turns out or leave a picture in the comments to show me how beautiful yours turned out!! ^-^

Natural is Beautiful

I decided to go natural in March of this year. Going natural is when a woman stops using harmful chemicals and perms in her hair and starts to big chopembrace the hair she was born with.

For years, I got perms because my mother made me go get them. Getting perms to straighten my hair made my hair break off a lot.

I was tired of having damaged hair and I wanted my hair to be healthier and grow longer, so this is why I decided to embrace my natural hair.
I did my research by looking at YouTube videos about natural hair, pinning pictures of women with natural hair on Pinterest, and talking to some of my friends and family members who have natural hair as well. All of that prepared me for my natural hair journey…so I thought.

Looking at videos and pictures is one aspect, but actually cutting off all of the damaged hair and getting use to my natural hair was a tough situation to grasp.

In March when my hairdresser finished cutting my hair, I was nearly bald. It took a while for me to actually like it.hair

I stood in front of the mirror for a while trying to embrace this new look, I came to terms with it and then headed out into the world. I wasn’t very confident about my new look, but I tried to stay positive.

Now, nine months later, my hair is the healthiest it has ever been and it is growing rapidly. I also inspired a lot of girls to go natural as well, which is pretty exciting.

My hair is very coiled and kinky, so it looks shorter than it really is. In the natural world we call that Meshrinkage.

I am excited to get my hair straightened with a flat iron soon to see how long it truly is. I plan on doing that in March of 2015 because it will be exactly a year since I big chopped.

It may be a lot of work to keep up with it, but I am happy that I embraced my natural hair!

*The pictures go in order from my big chop in March, to how long it currently is now 🙂
