Hair Stick Set

taking down a set created using a hair stick. the same can be achieved using a pencil. a little spritz of water, mousse or setting lotion, then wrap the ends of hair around the stick, roll hair up the scalp, hold the roll in place and pull out the stick. secure roll with a hairpin. very much like pin curls. Very long lasting curls and shape.

Braid Set

Washed, braided while damp, air dried and finger combed. Very long lasting set.

Large Perm Rods

roller set with 1" and 1 1/4" perm rods, some mousse. hair has a lot of body and movement with this set but curls are not long lasting. just slightly curled. will try smaller rods.

Fast Styles

Fast and easy styles

Bantu Knots set

The set

a bantu knots set, then fluff out with fingers

Dbl Strand + Bantu knot set

tight double strand twist plus bantu knots, air dried and finger combed after 2nd day. the double strand twisting, when twisted tightly, forms a rope look. Then when you release it, it slackens or loosens and holds the twist. So it is not an uncomfortable set.
