A Retro & Regal Christmas Updo!!
Christmas is right around the corner, and your girll is excited!! Oh word! As I mentioned in this post here, December is one of my favorite times of the year because of all the season's festivities!
I have several fun Christmas events lined up for the end of the year, so I thought I'd share a styling idea that's both retro and regal.
When I say retro, I mean beehive retro! Do you remember the beehive? Not Bey-hive, but beehive! That hairstyle that we all wanted when we were kids!! I cannot tell you how much I pestered my mum to have my hair braided up in a beehive! I just thought it was the cutest most divalicious style ever!!!
(Yeah, my brother says I've been a diva from birth! Haha!)
So I thought I'd weave in some warm childhood memories into this year's Christmas hair styling!
I pinned up my hair using a very simple roll and tuck method. Would you believe I used two pins? I love that my 4C hair simply catches on itself, no holding sprays and mousses needed around here! Mother nature gave us all the right kinks and curls to hold down a style even in a tornado!! Now I ain't complaining!
I then added this gorrrgeeouuss golden headpiece that I bought from Lovisa. You can find similar ones here. And voila..retro regal queendom was achieved!
Can we also talk about this little white number? I got it for a bargain at a boutique store in Melbourne. I love that it's high neckline gives it a structured and formal feel but its length and out-turned zipper give it a modern, girlie fit! This dress is classic and chic all in one! LOVE IT!
Oh what fun it is to style our hair this festive season!! What styles are you rocking this Christmas/New Years? I'd love to know!
Love & Sunshine!
