KayJay enlisted my help for a unique, yet professional style. I’ve been lacking creativity these days, so we turned to Instagram. She came across this updo styled by @Toni_096 and it was easy enough, so I got to work!

Four hours and a couple of do-overs (due to tender-headed-ness) later I came up with this joint! She chose Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Twisting Butter (click link for my review) as the sealant and moisturizer. I finished the style by rolling the individual twists into 3 large pin curls secured by bobby pins.

I know you do hair tutorials showing how to accomplish a style but do you do hair as your career. If you do are you in the southwest Region?
I just love how you braid your hair and your friend!
I am a new subby! 🙂
