Hello Blog Lovers! Before I start my new post I want to thank and welcome all of the new followers. I appreciate the support! I was browsing the web last week viewing some of the Spring RTW 2010 fashion shows on Elle.com as well as Style.com and amongst all of the fabulous finds that I discovered I came across the Goddess hair Style that was also seen on runways during fashion week. I have been rocking my hair like this for years for as long as I can remember. I wanted to share it with you guys as well as show you how to achieve the style as well.
The Style is simple and can be achieved simply and you can wear it different ways as shown above in the pictures.
- You want to make sure that you start with fresh clean conditioned hair that is dry. (If you want you can choose to roller set your hair with rollers along with wrapping/setting lotion and allow it dry under the dryer for about 45 minutes (depending on your hair length will determine how much time you will need)).
- Using a hand blow dryer with the comb extension blow dry the hair to make sure that all of the is free from any waves or bumps.
***If you are roller setting your hair you don't have to use a blow dryer step.***
- You will now part the hair into sections and you can either part the hair into four square sections or into four pie sections starting at the crown of your head.
- Starting at which ever section is most comfortable enough for you part the hair into small 1" subsections (starting at the bottom of the section) apply a thermal protector then proceed to use either a 1" curling iron, curling wand, or flat iron wrap the hair around the tool of choice and form a spiral. Continue to do this until the entire head is completed.
After the hair has been curled.
***This next step is optional can be done as you go along or after you finish curling the entire head.***
- Part the hair into the same four sections and begin to part the hair again into subsections. Divide the subsections in half and form a pin curl. (Take the ends of the hair and form a circle wrapping around in the circle formation until you reach the base) Secure the pin curl into place with a single prong hair clip or bobby pin. Alternate the direction of the pin curl to give the hair some definition and to keep the curls from clumping together. Using a light hair spray spray the curls and after about 5 minutes release the pin curls and just finger your hands through your hair. You can choose to spray another coat of hair spray if you wish.

- You can part your hair or add the side braids if you choose securing them with bobby pins.
The style at the top was achieved with the steps that I discussed above and the picture on the bottom is a invisible part quick weave Quick weaves 101: The Duby and the Invisible part. I used the new Zury Ultra twin hair it comes in a pack of four that ranges in lengths 8" 10" 12" and 14" and you only need just one pack of hair (It says it on the box and it's true) It's one of their new products. I just used lotta body wrapping setting lotion foam to maintain the curl on a daily basis. I loved it!
