MY PROTECTIVE STYLE LOOK BOOK WITH LOOKS FROM NY FASHION WEEK FALL 2013

Hiya,
The long awaited Protective Style Look Book is ready!! Came back from work yesterday and had a surge of energy, I put some makeup on and got down to trying out some hairstyles I had admired from the 2013 NYFW FALL runways. So without much ado, below are the hairstyles from the runway and how I recreated them, feel free to recreate them for yourself :)

Bradgley Mischka;

 
 




 

 
 
RODARTE
 
 
 

 
 
 
CAROLINA HERRERA;
 
 
 
 

 

 
I DECIDED TO TUCK MY ENDS UNDER INSTEAD!

 
 
 
JASON WU; Loved Loved this look, clean and sophisticated!!
 

 
 
 
 
LOOK 5; Im sorry I have no clue whose look this is but I like it, takes me back to the 90's when gel was reigning! I used pure aloe vera gel to sleek down the front of my hair so it would not have the hardened gel look! 
 

 
 
 LOOK 6; Again I have no idea whose look this is; you can click the source for further inquiries, but its such a Fulani girl look, I love it! made me feel like I was a yarinya from Hausa land...LOL

I decided to braid down my ends instead of having them in a bun like in the picture


Thats all for now ladies, I had a few more looks but after a long day's work, taking pictures and smiling like a geek wore me out!! I am going to do a few protective style HOW To's for people who want guidance in achieving some of the looks from the NYFW runway and even some celebrity looks. Hope you enjoyed this post!!

In other news, I joined Instagram...me and technology are like oil and water, funny that Im a blogger right?! Well this platform makes things plain and simple...luckily instagram seems easy too...anyways, if you want updates on my hairstyles and NHCG in general, feel free to find me on Instagram; DABSNHCG

In other other news, I think some of you are mind readers on this blog....I was writing a Diamond in a rough post on thursday (the post should be up tomoz) and then I got a message that a comment was left on one of my posts, opened to read the comment and lo and behold, the lady was asking about the exact same product I was writing about!!! I like suspense so be patient ladies... come back and find out which product I am talking about...


Thanks for stopping by!!
