Stylez...

Can we talk about styles?

When I first decided to go nappy (we can say nappy, right? Y'all aint gone get "sensitive" with that word??), my first fear was HOW am I going to style it...I was worried...I gots a big head...I mean HUUGGGEEE...Airplanes mistake my dome for a landing strip my head is so big...I didn't know HOW I was going to work that out...But guess what? It's not a huge issue...There are so many styles out there that I can do now! I'm only limited by my imagination. When I had a perm, I could do like 3 or 4 styles and that was it...I wasn't the type of woman that wore the 3 styles in one head with like a pound of gel in it and 10,000 bobby pins, with finger waves in the front and "shrinky dinks" in the back...That wasn't me...The length of my hair basically left me with down...1/2 down, and up...that was it...Oh, and if I was really trying to be cute, I'd get a straw set. See, my hair doesn't really curl all that well, and I was stuck with floppy straight styles...Not anymore...

Check ya girl out...This is over the years of nappy...

Okay...okay...That's enough attention whoring...But you get the point right? You CAN wear 6.8 billion different styles, and they don't HAVE to be braids...I don't even consider myself all that creative in the styles department, and can BARELY braid, but I can pull off some supa fly styles...BET...

Hey Jennifer,

Check out Motown Girl's instructions here. http://www.motowngirl.com/content/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=61&Itemid=6

The size of the twists determine the size of the "curlies" for the twist out...Smaller twists make smaller curlies...For this style, they were about the size of a Sharpie...(little thicker than a pen)...HTH...
