Protective Styles

Grace Jones by Art

I’m a Hair Enthusiast! Hair…is just something that I love! I’ve always been a fan of fly, funky, and fun and can’t forget easy to manage. Every fall/winter I protective style with either braids, twists, or locs. Looking for some ideas for a Fall Festival? And guess what!? Even if you don’t “celebrate”, you can still dress up and have fun! Last year, I wanted to do something fun, but having my faux locs installed — I had no clue what. Then I came across Franchesca “Chescaleigh” Ramsey’s (Chescalocs) Natural Hair-O-Ween video where she collaborated with other naturals on YouTube. When I ran across Ambrosia Malbrough’s Grace Jones Hair-O-Ween tutorial, I said–that’s IT!  I absolutely love Grace Jones so I figured out a way to make her look work with my locs. This is not a tutorial (you can view the video below), but to show you the final result and inspire you with some ideas!


I am none other than… Grace Jones, the “remarkably unchanged”, a true living legend, fashion icon, and FIERCE unequivocal beauty!

Faux Loc Extensions

Can you believe it!?!? I FINALLY DID IT!!! I’ve been natural 6 years and I wasn’t quite sure if I was ready to take that step to permanent locs. So for about a year now, I’ve been contemplating getting loc extensions. Well the time has come! With a little research and true DEDICATION and INSPIRATION…I did! This is not an easy task. […]

I just recently participated in a Tweet Chat about naturals wearing weave and the question was asked: How do you feel about naturals wearing wigs, weaves, extensions, etc.? I’ve been discussing this topic with other naturals for some time now. It wasn’t until I recently read some comments, that I felt the need to discuss it openly. Angela […]
