PROTECTIVE STYLE LOOK BOOK INSPIRED MY NY FASHION WEEK SPRING 2013

Hiya,
The long weekend went by in a flash!! Back to work on Monday!!arghhh! 

Okay, enough of my moaning, here are a few protective styles I tweaked from models during last month's New York Fashion Week. This post really is to inspire ladies out there who want to practice protective styling aside from the usual weaves and extensions, its also a great way to learn how to play with your hair, feel free to get inspired and tweak the styles like I did and if you'd like send me a picture; daboju@yahoo.com and I'll post it on the facebook page :)



The first look was a big side braid swoop (you know I like my braids). This look was rocked by models at the EMERSON fashion show. 
MY VERSION; 



I rocked this look for a whole week, all I did was spritz the braid with water and glycerin each day and re braided the braid after a few days. I liked this look so much I wore it out for an event;



Another look I got inspired by was this look for MARCHESA;
 MY VERSION;


I put my ends in a bun- protective styling remember!

HERVE LEGER had models style their hair with a single braid pulled to the back-loves it!!


MY VERSION;
I tucked away my ends as I didn't want my ends dangling down.



Other styles from the NYFW I will be trying;

This look for Jason Wu;

 This look (very weddingly) for Joanna Mastroianni 


I liked these edgy looks- simple but edgy!

RACHEL COMEY

SUNO


I also created some looks of my own;

This first look is an elaborate pompadour style achieved by folding forward the ends of my hair after holding it up in a high pony;



I tried out a milder version for church, accessorized with an earring to match my dress! lol me and shenanigans!!


Well that's the end of my protective look post! Hope y'all get inspired :)

  5. i will def be using alot of these styles
    well done girl
    a little tip for you
    the gel or hold product you use gives too much of a wet look

    try using a matte paste instead...try vo5 from boots

  6. Girrrrrl, i am soooooooo jealous of your hair!!! Its just soo long and nice, wish my hair could look soft like that. Mine is just very tough and full so it's quite difficult to handle and it gets tangled alot.
