April Hair Carnival: Copycat Style



It's Hair Carnival time!! This time around I was paired with the talented Michelle and Des of Girly and Curly. Here's a little bit about Michelle in case you've never visited her page: 

I am a mother of three beautiful multi-racial children. My sons are teenagers well on their way to being grown ups and a Girly daughter who loves every second of being a self proclaimed fashionista. This blog will talk about various products that make our life easier and more enjoyable, girly stuff (of course), beauty products, and last but certainly not least naturally curly hair and the care you put into it.

For this carnival,  I chose to recreate a style that is posted on the Girly and Curly Facebook fan page. Be sure to stop by and "Like" her page and visit her Style Gallery for more amazing styles!! 

Here is the original style that Michelle created for Des:



I copied this style as closely as I could, while adding my own special touches. 

Products Used for Styling:
Comb for parting 
Water bottle




I started with clean, detangled, moisturized and stretched hair. Next, I created four ponytails that were each placed in the center. I then created 3 - 5 two-strand twists for each ponytail and wrapped them around into a bun. The buns were secured with hair pins. For the bangs, I looped the twists around in a clockwise motion and instead of using hair pins, I placed a black ouchless hair band around the top to secure it. The remainder of her hair that was not wrapped was unraveled to make curly bangs. I added a matching flower to complete the look.
