Wedding Updo

I went to East Africa over the December holidays, and my hosts had to attend a wedding of their childhood friend who lives in the United States; and they dragged me along :-) Nairobi is pretty hot in December so I pulled my hair into a nice updo off my shoulders.
It turned out nice, I think... I have always been creative with hair, especially braided hair, and I'm finding it pretty easy to style my locs on the few-and-far-inbetween days when I actually make an effort. I never really think of taking pictures, but since I'm turning over a new blog leaf this year I suppose I'll have to make an effort. The plan is to have a page dedicated to hairstyles, so that whoever wants can get ideas on what to do with their hair can do so. I must say I have found some pretty nice hairstyles on blogs and it is only fair that I share whatever I can to add to the pool f ideas out there :-)

Anyway, nothing fancy here really, I wanted the different colours on my hair to show, so I decided to have a bit of hair hanging loose. I held a small portion of the hair with my hand, and with the other kept wrapping and tucking small sections of hair around the small pony. I sectioned the hair in front to the side...that's all really...

Here's a back view, it is not very clear since I cropped it from a full picture with other people, but I hope you get the idea...

Thank you to those who noticed and commented on my different layout. I'm still struggling with minor details like getting my slideshow to upload properly...but I suppose I'm getting there slowly!

A blessed day to you all :-)

Compliments of the new year people :-)

Yeah, you guessed right, the Prodical Daughter is back.

All is well in my land, although my hair has been neglected, somewhat!

I was so excited when I got my locks I looked forward to the next wash, style, curl, blog... now I'm sort of getting used to it (not a bad thing) but I'm not too impressed with myself for somehow defaulting on taking good care of my hair as a rule :-(

I've micro-locked 3 people so far...ButtaPhly, Crax & a friend's daughter (in the pic with me, her mom braided her over the locs for holidays) More pics to follow...

PS: I still love my locks, which is why I'm gonna get over my laziness & wash my hair today..

Peace to you all
