So excited... I'm back with another Loc how to. So it was my friend's wedding yesterday and I'm was honoured to be her maid of honour. It had been a while since I've been on a bridal train and I honestly forgot how much work it is; however I had fun doing all of it and was so so so so so so happy for the new Mrs. I know you are here for a loc how to; let me not bore you with 7 things you need to know before being a "Chief Bridesmaid".
After accepting Gloria's request, I started thinking of what to do with my locs I settled for the Chescalocs bridal hairdo, but my boyfriend suggested I try out the her two strand twist bun instead. See Chesca's how to video below)
My locs aren't half as long as Chesca's, so I had to improvise. After getting my locs into two strand twist all round as per video above, I realised there was no way I could form that gorgeous bun with my length so I resorted to doing a basket weave behind with my twist and molded it into a pinless up do.
And here's how it turned out... Had to take all the pictures myself, so get ready for my selfie parade.
|Reflected Selfie :)|
|Really liked this view of the loc updo.|
|Another Reflected selfie.|
|Basket weave (didi) /top rear view.|
|That's what the sides were looking like.|
|Pleasantly fascinated by the fascinator|
|As if my day wasn't hectic enough, I decided to go to Salsa,|
so I switched out the fascinator for
this shiny band I got from max a while back.
Note, it is extremely difficult taking selfies with any type of camera that doesn't have a screen facing you and yes I took a lot of pictures without me in them before I could get these ones. #phew. All pictures were taken after I got back from the wedding, my make up was intact I guess that was what gingered me to go Salsa.
I forget the name of the make up artist now, but will update with her details and a link to her blog once I get them.
Next post would be on the new accessories I got from Max and the thermal cap that finally arrived. Did it meet my expectations? You'd have to stay tuned. + October 17, 2014 is a date you need to save, more details coming soon.
Have a wonderful week ahead and keep it loc'd with an attitude.
Your Loc Head.
