Afro Halloween Series| Little Red Riding Wolf

Hey Loves,

I am back with another AFRO HALLOWEEN SERIES. For those who are new here I named it this because I am trying to incorporate my natural hair into the looks I am creating. Today’s look will be the two twist puffs (ala Princess Leia). I wanted to incorporate some things that I love into this mix so I guess I should point out some highlights in this look:

  1. Liquid Latex ( Really trying to get into the SFX with simple techniques)
  2. DIY Pat McGrath Lips

  1. I started on an old twist out and gently parted my hair into 2 equal parts (For this i suggest parting with a comb since people we actually see this part)
  2. Using my mist spray and Alikay Natural Essential 17 Hair Growth I started making my hair into a ponytail
  3. To help smooth out my hair I used the AS I AM smoothing gel (for me this gel only works is minimizing my frizz not actually taming my baby hairs)
  4. Using a hair tie (I recommend making your own) I secured the hair into a ponytail
  5. Taking the hair that is sticking out I two strand twisted my hair and then pinned it in place with bobby pins
  6. After my ponytails were complete I used my Hicks Edges and a toothbrush to lay down my edges
  7. Secure with a scarf while you prep everything else

The best thing to do is to start on a fresh clean face. I made sure to take a cotton ball with some alcohol just to rub over that area to make sure I was using a very clean surface. Try to avoid your hair as much as possible or you will be reminded of the horror very quickly.
