Red Carpet Hairstyle for my Natural Hair

I am sure many of you guys know by now that I hardly allow people touch my hair, in the name of styling. I don't like Nigerian salons for anything. If you didn't know, then check out this post. So when I was invited to a dinner, one of the main things on my mind was my hair. I had never walked the carpet with my natural hair, the highest I had done was TV interviews. Doing anything apart from carrying my natural hair was not even an option. I mean the main reason I was even recognised for this even was because I am a natural hair blogger, lol. I hardly style my hair, but when I want to, then I go all out. Since I knew I couldn't pull off a Teyonnah Paris, thanks to my uncontrollable and full side edges and madly frizzy hair, I started to think of what to do.

So, what did I do? I called Omozo of O'naturals. She was the only one I could think of to style my natural hair without me shouting every 5 minutes, or considering the fact that the stylist is mishandling my hair. I have modelled for her natural hair salon when my hair was not as long as this, so I don't doubt her abilities. I will put some of the modelling pics up here in future. (The salon will be opening in few weeks, so don't bother asking for details. I will announce it on this blog once it opens, lol).

I visited Omozo on the day of the event, and I was happy for two things. She removed all the tangles and shed hair I had not been expert enough to take care of, and I realised my hair had not plateaued as I thought, and it was now a proper BSL. She ended up doing a very simple double cinnabun on my hair.

Anyway, to cut the long story short. This was what I ended up looking like. Sorry the pictures are not the highest quality

    1. Actually, the carpet is gold. It was a very high profile Egyptian themed dinner. The whole setting was gold and black.

      No she did not do a blow out. My hair was already stretched when I got to her.

    2. How did you stretch your hair, pray tell...

    3. Actually Berry, my hair is stretched 98% of the time. a day before I did the style, I took my twists out, DCd and washed my hair, and braided in about 6 sections. I went to church the next morning, and from church went to make my hair.

      So I guess straight from wash, my hair returns to a stretched state immediately.
