Fall/Winter Trend : Turban Headbands

One thing I am obsessed with right now is Turban Headbands aka Turbands. I am currently building my collection and I think they are a fun way to add pizzaz to your casual everyday looks and keep warm at thesame time. They are also versatile; you can wear them with your hair up or down etc. Any item that provides Style+Comfort is a winner in my book :)

They are available in a wide variety of colors, materials (including knits for the colder months). The turbans that cover your entire head are too daring for me but I like them on others. I will stick to trying out turbands (a mesh between a turban and a headband.)
I especially like the studded one Kourtney Kardashian was spotted wearing last year.

If you want to get a turban. I recommend getting colors that contrast your hair or those that have studs so that it pops against your hair color. What is your opinion on turbans? Hot or Not?

My Fave Fall Hairstyle + Ponytail Lust

My everyday hairstyle since Fall started is the braided hairstyle above. I like this hairstyle because it is easy to do and it keeps my hair out of my face.

If you want to know how to do this hairstyle, check out the video below:

I am a huge fan of ponytails because they always give you a effortless chic look. One person that wears ponytail hairstyles frequently and wears them well is Kim Kardashian.


I have worn synthetic ponytail extensions in the past and the one thing I did not like about them is that they are shiny, tangled after 1-2 wears and do not look very natural.

Recently I saw a picture of Angela Simmons at fashion week and she had on a ponytail hairstyle. Her look was flawless and of course I decided that I have to get one for myself.

 I would like to find a human hair ponytail with yaki texture so it matches with the texture of my hair. Yaki simply means that the hair mimics relaxed African (American) hair. 

I will keep you updated if I find a ponytail and do a detailed post on it.

Have a wonderful week :)

Crochet : Make Your Full Head Weave Look Natural

I am always looking for new ways to make my weaves look natural. During winter I would like a full head weave (with little to no hair left out) that I can put in high ponytails. A closure is a good alternative for a full head weave but it is not possible to put your hair in a high bun/ponytail with a closure that is not glued down without leaving any of your hair out.

I  found a good alternative: Crochet Weave/braids. I think it is a great way to make a full head weave look natural. It is a great protective style and also offers versatile styling options.
If I decide to try this method, I will do this around my parting and the perimeter of my head not throughout my entire head. I only found videos of people doing this style with synthetic hair.

What do you think of this method?
