Thumbs up I'm Excited! A cute and easy up-do for formal events

Heyyyy, so....I've never really been good at doing my own hair, but since I've become a natural I've taken great interest in doing it myself and trying different things. Lastnight my SO wanted to go have drinks, so I rushed home, kicked off the flats, threw on the heels and got the make up poppin! lol So wait, what am I gonna do with this fro-hawk I've sported all day?! I played around with my hair and then finally ended up with this...







very easy to do, just requires, a brush, bobby and hair pins, and something to smooth your edges with.

I think that's really cute!!! I'd love to try more up-doo's on myself, but hair pins/bobby pins are not my friends.

Thanks ladies!

Also forgot to add that my hair had been twisted out, and then pinned back into a fro-hawk, which was then turned into this hairstyle

Thank you! Why dont you like hair pins?
It's like, whenever I try to pin up my hair, the pins are always too loose or something. Maybe I need to invest in larger hair pins.
