Last Week's Looks: The Updo Challenge Ends


I'm a little late with This Week's Looks post, for obvious reasons :p so here it is.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm not gonna lie, the week before last week wasn't a very inspired week. And as last week approached, I had officially run out of styles (except for day 30). So come Monday morning...I just winged it. And on Tuesday...and Wednesday...

Monday:







Tuesday, lol...Tuesday's style was the best bad hair day save of my life. I lie, it was the second (I'm thinking about some absolutely dreadful braids I got in 7th grade that I had to wear for a month). So there I was soooo excited about my new banana clip that I wore on Monday. It was so easy to use and I couldn't believe I'd spent my 27 years on this Earth having never used one! I decided to use it on Tuesday too, this time in a sort of fro-hawk style. Just less than 10 minutes to go until I have to get to work and all's well. Spritz - check, gel - check, slick edges - check! Banana clip in my hair...right side's good...now...just...the left bit... and that's when I heard a loud 'KA'! And just like that, my banana clip died. My hair simply refused to fit into that thing, and it wasn't even alllll of my hair, more like 70% of it. Boom, done, destroyed, snapped the poor clip in half. RIP. It was only a day old.

Shock doesn't even begin to describe how I was feeling. All I knew was I now had 5 minutes to fix my hair and do my make up. Not without cursing my hair for being so big and stubborn. I know I say we should stop cursing our hair, but I think I can get a pass for those 4 minutes I was wrestling it into this style. Thank God for other clips! And combs...and pins. That's what was needed to quickly create a new updo. At the end of it all, I had to laugh. What else to do? Fro and I were tied on this one. Aisha 1: Fro 1.








Wednesday:








Thursday:









Friday:






Saturday AKA Day 30!



My feeble attempt at indicating '30'!





And with that, my second hair challenge officially ends. But the styles will live on! As promised, I'll be sharing tutorials on how I achieved each and every one of these updos on my Youtube channel. As they say, subscribe and watch this space...

    I actually fell for your April fools day prank. I was busy asking myself, now what will this blog be about, relaxed hair?

    1. LOL! I actually was thinking of even changing my logo to a hair silhouette that 'falls' and crossing out the "Fro" and replacing it to "My Relaxed Hair & I" hehehe
