Hairstyle of the Week: Bridesmaid Edition

For the last few weeks I have been searching (and posting) about my relentless search for a hairstyle for my close friend Rockies wedding. Her wedding was this weekend (she looked gorgeous and we had a *hands in the air* shoes off*dance till you sweat* soca, reggae, and house music pumping* what do you mean it's over?* where's the after party?* amazing  time) and I definitely wanted to share the look I ended up rocking with you all. SADLY my camera was submerged in a small puddle of water over night the day before the wedding (tragic...I know) and stopped functioning for most of the wedding. I am still in the process of gathering other people's pics...but in the mean time I can share the ones I took of myself after the wedding!

 The hair style was actually  found in a hair magazine (I believe Hype Hair but I need to double check) and suggested by Rockie.  It is is basically a typical Mohawk  consisting of cornrows and twists. The twist and some of the cornrows were done with Marley Hair so I could have the desired length and fullness I needed to create this style. Afterwards ( my hair was done by one of the braiders in a African Hair Braiding Salon in my neighborhood) I pinned the twists up and voila. This weekend I will do a step by step pic tutorial to show you all how I pinned it up, but it is really a lot simpler than it looks.

What do you think?


  1. I LOVE it!
    That's gorgeous on you!
    It looks very natural and not too tight AT ALL!
    Awesome look.
    I hope you post some of the wedding pics too! And can't wait for the tutorial. I have a similar updo style that I want to try like this but can't figure out those rolls at all! LOL.
    Loving this style on you. Compliments your face very nicely.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Awww....Thanks Gabrielle!! The woman who braided my hair really woked hard to make it look as natural as possible. The rolls are WAY easier than they me. Pic tutorial to come soon....

  3. 1She did an excellent job and so did you! Can't wait for the tutorial. Peace
