You all probably remember Jacqui. I interviewed her regarding her one-year Sisterlocks anniversary. We had a request to see her styles larger and for how-to advice.
Jacqui was so kind to share tutorials of her gorgeous hair styles. Thanks so much! Your styles look great.
Bantu bangs with two French rolls
I sectioned out a bang and put about six to eight Bantu knots. I lightly spritzed my hair with water and let it dry overnight. I divided the rest of my hair into two sections. Starting from the base of hair at neckline, I French rolled each section using pins to secure in place. Once I finished both sides, I took Bantu knots loose and gently finger combed them.
Roaring 20s Throwback
I rolled my hair with the Lock Loops and did a light water spritz to set. I wasn’t sure if my curls would hold until that night (my b-day), so I began pulling the sides up and pinning the curls down. I ended up pinning them like a “banana” hair clip so that it was like a curly, very controlled Mohawk with faux bangs. That’s the best I could describe that one. LOL. Total experiment that I ended up liking.
Flat twists/basket weave ponytail
I fell into this hairstyle trying to stay cool for the summer. I split the front section of my hair into four sections and flat twisted in the direction of a ponytail. The back is a simple basket weave I saw Terez do on her 28-day style challenge. I use it a lot! I left the ends loose on the flat twists and basket weave, creating a faux ponytail.
Large basket weave updo
I LOVE basket weaves. You can change the look simply by using more or less hair. I used large sections of hair to achieve this look. I weaved the front until it reached from ear to ear. Then I started at the back weaving until I reached my ear. I just let the hair left in the middle drape. Sorry I didn’t get a back head shot, but you get the idea.
Slide sweep bang with donut bun
I was so excited I could pull all my hair into a bun! I pulled the bang to the side and pinned it. I gathered the rest of my hair into a ponytail and pinned the excess hair using another scrunchie to give it a donut effect.
