The Wrap Life

So it’s been a couple of weeks now with this hair is I’ve gotten quite used to it, so used to it in fact it’s beginning to irritate me a bit, constantly getting in my face and I wear it up in a high bun on most days.



Wearing a plain bun gets a bit boring now and then, so I like to mix it up a bit and bring some colour through to give it a bit of life. Not all my head wraps are big enough to hold these braids (cause they are so chunky), so the range of prints I have to play with is small; hence my wearing this one quite a bit lately, it’s my favourite.



This look is pretty simple, I styled a new pair of dark washed jeans (that butt shaping pair from Dunns I shared on insta here, what do you think?), with a vest in this new spicy colour I’m loving and my strappy block heels from Country Road.

By the way, a few of you have been asking for some tutorials and I know I haven’t delivered, I’m really sorry 🙈 ..but I will soon enough, pinky promise! But the question is, do you want me to do it with the braids or rather with my natural hair?

UPDATE – I shared a video tutorial on instagram, showing how to do this wrap here:

  1. I Like This Hairstyle Tokelo.

    If You Do The Tutorial, Please Do One With Braids And One With Natural Hair. Hope I’m Not Asking For Too Much.
