Over the weekend I had my hair styled by award winning stylist Charlotte Mensah, so on Friday I went to get my hair treated and prepped at her salon, Hair Lounge.
After deep conditioning using Beautiful Textures' Rapid Repair, my hair was blowdried and then the bottom half was braided upwards. The top was sprayed with water to give it some 'puffiness', put into chunky twists using Beautiful Textures' Curl Control and pinned to create this amazing style.
As much as I loovee to see these updo's on other people, I've never really thought they would suit me so I've stayed away from it. I have to admit it took a while for me to get used to it, but once I did I LOVED it. All the models got hooked up with our makeup too over the weekend and had our faces looking on point. You can find the MUA on instagram @beatbybeni.
Over the weekend Charlotte showcased how she created this look using the Beautiful Textures products and recreated the top section during live demonstrations. I even had the chance to work the runway at AHBL!
I was also able to meet the lovely Strength of Nature team who came over from the US for these events, which was great. AND they bought the one and only Afrobella with them who I managed to steal a picture with (and yes, she's even more sweet and friendly than she looks.. and she looks super friendly).
All in all it was an amazing experience and I'm really grateful to Pelumi of Care For Your Hair for the opportunity. I got the chance to meet so many great people including the lovely girls I was modelling with! Plus I also came away with a crazy big selection of Strength of Nature goodies. If you don't know their brands then they include: Beautiful Textures, Elasta QP, Profectiv Mega Growth, African Pride, Profectiv Growth Renew, Profectiv Relax and Refresh.
I'll be doing my first give away with some Strength of Nature goodies so make sure you're subscribed for a chance to win :)
