The [not so] TWA

source: Fayruz Abdiamn Sutherland Models
If I had a little fro, this is how I'd rock it. This model obviously has her sides tapered, so it gives it a different look. To get this look: (1)Wash and condition hair as usual, use Sebastian Potion Number 9 Lite (perfect for free flowing styles) as your leave in of choice (or your own personal fav). (2) In a spray bottle add water, then set aside. (3) Make tiny sections to prepare for setting your har, spray each section of hair with water to keep it dripping wet, add a dollop of Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding (or any setting product of your choice), and comb the section with a rat tail comb to make it smooth. (4) Add end papers to the hair, and set them on ORANGE PERM RODS (25-30 rods). (5) Once your entire head is covered, spray your hair with a  heat protectant, I like Aveda Brilliant Damage Control. (6) Sit under the dryer for about an hour (or until dry..heating times may vary), once your hair is dry, you may begin taking down the rods. (7) Make sure to run your fingers through your hair to get rid of any parts, and give the hair more of a natural feel. Play around here, it's ok to separate the curls, you get more volume. (8) To get super shiny hair, add some Chi Silk Infusion to your hair while finger styling the curls. You can use Monoi De Tahiti Oil, or just plain Coconut Oil. Finger style, add some hair candy and you are set! 

For my chica's who want to make a BOLD statement...check out Fayruz's 80's inspired flat top! Fierce!



  1. Thanks for the tips- I've recently did the big chop, but I've been transitioning for a year. Needless to say, my afro is no longer "teeny weeny," and I need something to do with it!

  2. You can also get this look with a small bantu knot out!:)
