Reshare: Best Perm Rod Curl Tutorial Video

If you have straight hair, you’ll love the video I’m about to share because it will transform your straight strands into beautiful cascading curls! It’s one of the best I’ve seen but get this…The video isn’t really a tutorial! It’s more a capturing of how this lady set her natural hair using perm rods.

Whatever it is, it’s a tutorial in my book LOL. Her results are FABULOUS.

So, who is this lady? Naturally Curious on Youtube!

My girl is au naturale so if your hair is naturally curly, you will definitely be able to relate if you are desiring a different type of curl. This perm rod curl “non-tutorial” is right on point:

Beauty Reshare: Most Simplistic Sharp Brow Tutorials Hands Down

Groomed eyebrows are a girl’s signature of fierceness ~Me

simple sharp brow tutorials

Groomed eyebrows can really lift a face. You may not have on any other makeup but when your brows are on point, somehow you are good enough to enter the great outdoors. I’ve watched tons of brow tutorials as I myself am not an eyebrow grooming expert. I do OK but I’m always looking at other ladies videos to see if there’s a way I can improve upon my technique.

How do I get that crisp, sharp brow without spending a half an hour to get it?

There are TONS of videos on Youtube and on beauty blogs. Many of them are very very good. Some are even great. However, spending 1/2 my morning to achieve a look is not quite my thing. My eyebrows don’t have to be perfect but they do need to be somewhat sharp.

I’ve seen ladies use a combination of products including powder, pencil, eyebrow gel, concealer/highlighter and more. I just want to make my brows look neat and sharp. Does it take all that? Apparently, if your eyebrows are really sparse, it does.  In other words, if you don’t have any brows, obviously you need to work much harder to create them!

Now, you may not agree but I seriously think the following videos are the most simplistic I’ve seen on eyebrow tutorials. I couldn’t narrow it to just one. They are both just so darn…..good! (and simple. #key) Check them out for yourself:

3 Ways to Style Large Two Strand Twists

two strand twists

In a bit of a rush, after washing my hair yesterday I threw a few large two strand twists into my natural hair.

I hadn’t done twists in a while because I’ve been either protective styling or wearing my natural hair out curly. The problem is I have incurred a lot of tangling which led to long finger detangling sessions. Argh!

So, I decided to return to two strand twists. Why? Well, my hair seems to tangle the least when it’s twisted up. When I take down the twists on wash day, I have much less tangling. Even if I rock a twist out, when it’s time to wash my finger detangling session isn’t too bad.

When you wear twists, you still want to style them right? Well, I’ve come up with three cute hairstyles for large two strand twists:

Do you wear large, small or mini two strand twists?

How do you style them? Share a link to a pic or video tutorial below!
