Thanksgiving/Fall Themed Hair

(Yes, I still have bad pictures!)
I like to do styles for holidays, but I couldn't think of anything for Thanksgiving.  I just decided to do a simple random part box braid/ponytail style and added some festive fall colored beads.  (yellow, red, orange and brown if you can't tell)

For this style I used Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Shea Moisture Organic Coconut and Hibiscus Curl and Style Milk for moisture and curl definition, and I used some Taliah Waajid Lock It Up gel for hold.  See the She Moisture product reviews here and here! 

This took a little over an hour and a half to do, including detangling

This style only lasted for a day.  C's hair is very dry, no matter what I use!  Usually no style lasts longer than 2 or 3 days (3 is really pushing it) because C has extremely dry hair that doesn't stay moisturized. 

I put this style in the night before so C would be ready for school fast in the morning.  I expected a little frizzing since I made such big sections.  As you can see, C's hair was starting to curl up- it always does when it's braided, if we use beads or not.

This is fairly easy to figure out.  I just decided on rounded parts this time to switch up the look a little since I usually do straight, more squared parts.

I'm still trying to come up with something more original, but one thing that doesn't help is knowing that nothing is going to last long!

It looks like we might be doing a giveaway sometime soon in celebration of 100 followers- only 9 more to go!! :)  I wonder what we should give?.....


  1. This looks so cute! I really like the braids on her :) Yeah, I had no idea what a Thanksgiving hairstyle is so I stuck with twist-outs for me and my sister haha

  2. Very cute style! My daughter's hair does the same thing--curls up in braids. I found that if I use something like Curls Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste her styles don't kink and curl. It's pretty sticky and I use it on wet hair. I love the parts on C's hair and the pretty fall beads! :-)
