It's that time of the year when we grab our beanie hats and fedoras to look cute and keep warm! But sometimes it's hard to fit those structured fedora hats over our big natural hair! I grabbed the Hat Jack Hat Stretcher and put it to the test to see if it would help me fit my big natural hair (and head) into my hats the season!! Could this be a way to finally be able to comfortably wear ANY hat with big curly natural hair!!?! I hope you enjoy!

Jawless Zombie Pet Michonne + DIY Michonne Cloak | The Walking Dead Costume Cosplay

Michonne + Jawless Zombie Pet. Need I say more!?...

Aaaaah!! So freaking stoked guys! I've been wanting to make a Michonne Walking Dead Costume Cosplay for the longest! I decided it would be awesome to make a Zombie Pet - Michonne hybrid all in one look! Now I'm not insinuating that Michonne could ever become a walker... that's just absurd, but it's fun to pretend! 

I'm going to show you how I made this homemade DIY Michonne Walking Dead Costume as well as the DIY Michonne Cloak! Michonne's cape complete with her vest, katana, dreadlocks and gloves completes the Michonne Cosplay! I hope you enjoy the video and whether you want to be Michonne, the Jawless Zombie Pets, or both this Halloween, I hope it helps!

DIY Faux Locs | Flexible + Lightweight - Naptural85 

If you've ever wanted to try locs but were afraid of the commitment, you've got to try these faux locs! Also known as Temporary Loc Extensions, Faux locs can be extremely stiff, heavy, and uncomfortable to wear, but here's a simple method to getting your faux locs to be flexible, lightweight, and look more natural and realistic! It took me one day to install these, and I am so happy with how the feel and look! Comfortably pull your locs into a bun or updo! You can easily do anything to these faux locs that can be done to your natural hair in twists! I hope you give them a try!
