I successfully completed my 29 Styles, 29 Days, $29 Challenge. I did a different hair style every single day this month. I got to know my micro locs intimately. I learned that there are styles that I can do on my short locs that I thought were impossible, such as faux bangs, as well as those that I knew I would hate, like a mohawk. (I loved my mohawk).
I am very happy to say that I decided to reward myself by rewarding you, my subscribers. I am going to give away a homemade loc hair tie to one subscriber at my blog.
By Terez Howard Today is the last day of the 29 Styles, 29 Days, $29 Challenge. I managed to successfully do a different hair style every single day this month. The most challenging part of the challenge? Changing hair styles when I discovered one that I really liked. I did a couple hair styles that I had never tried before, and I wanted to keep them for longer than just one day. It was most challenging to take them down, and do something different the next day. This challenge has not made me tire of styling my hair. I am very excited to try more intricate hair styling. That’s what I tried today. (I plan on keeping this one a Read the Rest…
By Terez Howard I didn’t think that faux bangs could be achieved with my short micro locs. I was wrong. A simple twist and a few bobby pins made my faux bangs possible.

To make the locs that were sticking up from the basket weave blend with the rest of my hair, I put a French roll in the back. I truly had no idea what was going to become of my hair today. That’s why I encourage you to start experimenting with your hair. Make it up as you go. You might discover a style that you love. Tomorrow is the last day Read the Rest…
By Terez Howard I started out with one idea when I began to do my hair this morning and ended up with a different natural hair style. I knew that I wanted flat twists on the sides of my head to join together to make a center pony tail. However, my short micro locs made that pony tail look like crazy spikes were protruding from my crown. Instead, I created an inverted French roll so that they would lay down. Since the weather here in the Midwest is getting warmer (at least for today), I wore an accessory that kept my ears warm but didn’t leave me sweltering under a hat. I got my creme, flower headband from Payless on Read the Rest…
By Terez Howard When I think of a Bohemian hair style, I think of an unconventional, artsy, gypsy-like hair. I simply used bobby pins to create this Bohemian updo. I knew I wanted it to be low on my head. I twisted and twirled locs and pinned them down randomly. Here is what I got: Related Posts:Day 22: My Rendition Of The Waterfall BraidDay 18: Swirly Barrel Twists With My Bantu Knot Out
