Fancy Updo

If you KNOW me like that, then YOU know that wearing my hair out and wearing it often is something that I do not do.  So when I unleashed my fro for the weekend, you knew that hairstyle wasn't going to last long right?  This is how my hair looked like for Memorial day:

I didn't add anything to the twists, I just twisted my hair up as is.  As for the flat twists, I just used my old friend, my lover and boo, Fruit of the Earth aloe vera gel.  I got the beads from a local beauty supply store.

 I wrapped the ends of my twists around a hair pin that I straightened out slightly, and slid the beads one by one down the end and fed it onto my twists.

 It took about 10 minutes to do it because I had to establish a technique to keep my hair wrapped around the pin as I pushed the bead on my hair.  I did this because I was too cheap to by the hair needle at the store that cost $1.

 I figured I could come up with a suitable alternative if I tried hard enough.  The little roll in the front was created by twisting together about 4 big twists and pinning them down.  I shaped and molded the roll into the shape I wanted by patting it down and fluffing it out with my fingers.

If you have any questions, you can leave them down below! Thanks for stopping by!
