twitter a fellow blogger @TribeCalledCurl tweeted a link from ebonymag.tumblr.com of an Ebony cover from February 1970 that I LOVED!
Well I decided it was time to try and replicate her hair....better said then done LOL!
I was wearing an old twist out so I just applied a little more Koils by Nature leave in and grabbed some flexi-rods, some satin rollers and some optimism. My hair is all one length so i knew it would be a challenge plus I didn't want to use any hair pins.
I didn't detangle or comb my hair in anyway. I wore my satin bonnet and went to sleep. When I removed the rollers I was a bit scared because it didn't look like I could possibly accomplish the look but I was determined to try my best.
The spiral curls I didn't separate but pulled width wise to make it full, I did the same with the satin roller curls. I gently pulled my hair underneath from the roots to also add to the volume.
I couldn't master that sultry look Diana Ross has, and believe me I tried so......goofy??
The curls were soft, big and beautiful. I do need to work on this one but I really liked the end results.
What do you guys think? Should this style be in the running for Fro Fashion Week?
