I have been surf­ing online more than 2 hours today, yet I nev­er found any inter­est­ing arti­cle like yours. It’s pret­ty worth enough for me. In my opin­ion, if all site own­ers and blog­gers made good con­tent as you did, the net will be a lot more use­ful than ever before.


Hi, i think that i saw you vis­it­ed my site thus i came to go back the favor?.I’m attempt­ing to to find things to enhance my site!I guess its ok to use a few of your ideas!!


Great arti­cle. I will be going through some of the­se issues as well..


Hm. Not a huge fan of this style. I don’t like the two chunky curls in the front, they remind of the curls that Hasadic Jew­ish men wear for reli­gious pur­pos­es. I think she looks pret­tier when her hair is down because it’s so long and pret­ty that it does a great job fram­ing her face. I would like the entire style bet­ter with­out the two curls in the front and the five lit­tle pins in the mid­dle. May­be one big flow­er to the side?


We don’t have prom in Eng­land, but I love all the­se dress­es! Their siplmic­i­ty and the girls’ abil­i­ty to actu­al­ly dance in them is so charm­ing, it’s nice that prom was about danc­ing and hav­ing fun rather than just the clothes like it’s por­trayed now.From Carys of


think i will try the flaxseed gel.


Unless you have very long hair like her there is no need to watch this video!


Wow, that’s pret­ty fast from June. I vote for setrohr. :)I used to have short hair, but long for me is just eas­ier to man­age. At least I don’t have to go to the salon every 6 weeks like when I did when I had short hair.


Hav­ing long hair or short hair is not rel­e­vant. Her videos are inspir­ing and even­tu­al­ly with good care my hair will get long and I’ll be revis­it­ing this style. In the mean­time, I see no harm in watch­ing and learn­ing. That’s what its all about.


Despite what you’ve undoubt­ed­ly been told…jealousy isn’t a good look on you


My hair isnt long enough yet :(


Nei­ther is mine :\ I’m at the awk­ward and ter­ri­bly frus­trat­ing “too long for short styles & too short for long styles” stage. We’ll get there in time!


Oh Dananana, I feel your pain. I’m about 21 months post BC and my hair is grow­ing but I’m smack in the mid­dle of that awk­ward stage. My hair is too long for this style but not long enought to rock the styles I see Naputu­ral85 sport­ing. I’m hope going into my my 2nd and 3rd year I get some lenght to do those awe­some updos!!


I would total­ly rock this. It’s Gor­geous!


[…] even when one uses “nat­u­ral” in their search. I there­fore became quite inspired by this updo tuto­ri­al on Black Girl Long Hair by nat­u­ral hair vlog­ger Nap­tural 85. You can check out more tuto­ri­als […]


Yes, I would wear that style just to go to the store too! She is awe­some and very infor­ma­tive! Wow, sim­ple gor­geous!


I would def­i­nite­ly rock it, unfor­tu­nate­ly I am still not good enough at styling my own hair to do that style but I am work­ing at upping my game. I have been fol­low­ing her on You Tube almost from the begin­ning & she just keeps get­ting more & more inspir­ing.


Deep think­ing — adds a new din­mosien to it all.
