Okay ladies we are here outside with two of the exhibit models they have my favorite up-dos of the exhibit! “Kaneedra” and “Ashley” and they’re gonna tell us about how they achieved their up do and how difficult they were ok Kaneedra we’ll start with you Tell us about your up-do and how you achieved it. I basically put bobby pins in it to kind of not have fly aways it took me about five-minutes. I work out a lot so I have to have something that’s quick and convenient. This morning I worked out so when I went home I just kind of stuck a few bobby pins here and there, gave it a little bump up top, little bit of a bump in the back and that was it so it was it was not difficult at all it didn’t take more than five minutes and I was out the door because I had to get here to the exhibit on time. Okay and how long did it take you to learn how to do an updo in 5 minutes? The five minutes that it took to do ireally wasn’t anything, it was basically, I had to get to an exhibit, I teach fitness classes so I don’t have a lot of time to work with my hair so I have to learn stuff on the fly so if I can learn it very quickly then it works for me if I can’t and I have the mess around with it too much, I have to cut it can’t do it.
So I do twist my hair you know I might twist it on a Sunday when I have more time but during the week when i’m rushing I pin it up. It took about five minutes, I was pinned up and ready to go out the door. Fantastic and can we see the back Can you do a quick turn around? It looks beautiful. Look how beautiful all that detail is! And all that texture! We gotta get her signature streak in the front! You’re gonna have girls dying their hair like this! And this is Natural right? This natural I’ve had this since I was 12, it wasn’t this thick when I was 12, it’ll grow in year after year so eventually my hair will probably be all white. wow and you gotta keep it that way yea, well it’s beautiful (Loud screaming teens in background) LL Cool J just walked down the street He’s going to the “Yours Naturally Exhibit” hahaha “Uncle L” hahaha Now please tell us about your beautiful up do okay and both of them have almost similar updos in your pictures absolutely beautiful i’ll that “Just like Kaneedra this is a fast 5 minutes, I’m just trying to get out the house and like I said my motto is grab and go so l like to make a little crown here but after that it’s just grabbing it and pinning it I’m grabbing it and pinning until none of the 2-strand twists are hanging out and then you’re done.
This is a fantastic idea if you want to have a twist-out maybe in a few days you know but you have another event to go before before the twistout right but you want to keep it you know keep the definition for a later time you can have a beautiful up-do I absolutely love it! Can you turn around to get the details Awesome! How long have you been natural and how long did it take you before you found your groove where you were confident to wear your natural hair the way you liked it? I’ve been natural for about five years, about finding my groove I think I’m still finding it cause they’re times when I’m still not quite sure what to do how to style it so I have to still ask questions still get on YouTube or ask friends so I’m still searching for a groove but I think I got a nice hold on it for now. I think you found it! And the same question for you.
I went natural in college it was 2004 So I’ve been natural for eleven years now. January 2015 would have been 11 years I’m and I would agree with Ashley I’m still trying to find my groove, however I feel like way more confident than I was in 2004 like I don’t feel like I have a bad hair day cuz i turn it into a good hair day. So even when I have a day when I’m like WHOA I’m like “I can fix that” and that is really what I would promote as a natural is just find whatever works for you so even though I’m still trying out styles, I’ll never find a style where I’m like maybe it didn’t work but I don’t feel completely bad about it so 2004 is when I went natural and I’ve really become confident in the past couple years.
Thank you so much ladies for sharing! Your pictures are beautiful! Alright ladies, take care, bye!.
