I have been look­ing for a video on how to do this style. Thanks for shar­ing!!!



Just Lovely…thanks for shar­ing!


Her edges look mighty rough


you think so? I think they look nice, and she did it fast to show us.


glad you post­ed this video bglh! Ive been want­i­ng to try this style for a mon­th but did not know how. Head­ed to the styl­ist in the morn­ing for a trim. If my hair is long enough Im going to show her this vid. Thanks!


I dis­cov­ered this video at the end of 2010 and was so excit­ed because my hair was final­ly long enough to make this style doable. Got plen­ty of com­pli­ments, but then I had to get a much need­ed trim and now this style goes back in the files until I have more hair. I love her addi­tion of the flow­er too. Way cool!

I’m upload­ing my pic from Christ­mas Day with this style.

She did this tuto­ri­al for a nat­u­ral at the LA Nat­u­rals Mee­tup, it was so cute! Go girl!


Cute! It’s fast and sim­ple. I’ll have to try this style after my next wash day. :)


This hair­style came out look­ing real­ly good, sim­ple but yet del­i­cate with the flow­er acces­so­ry added. I also checked out her Youtube site, and real­ly like it. Her lit­tle boys are both nat­u­ral and are the cutest lit­tle babies with all that gor­geous hair.

Yay glad to see my pick was high­light­ed. I have been mean­ing to try this style for months but I have not yet done it. It real­ly does look super easy to do. 

The queen of updos is coily crowns on word­press. She does not do instruc­tion­al videos (though she real­ly should). I do think any­one inter­est­ed in updos should check her out.


She is work­ing that hair. Gor­geous.

love the quick and easy video. I will be try­ing this style tonight.


Wow that is so cute and ver­sa­tile. I’m def­i­nite­ly giv­ing that one a go when I take my hair down.


I am sooooo dig­gin this.

Peace, Love and Choco­late


I actu­al­ly tried this style this morn­ing! I need more prac­tice. :-p
