Fulani Hairstyles (Inspired) No Braid Skills Needed

Fulani hairstyles have been literally all over social media are so gorgeous to look at. They’re so intricate and different from the usual natural hair styles that we usually see. A lot of them require some mad braiding skills with cornrows of all size going so many different directions. It’s definitely going to be a long upper arm workout getting that done on yourself by yourself. Although the intricate styles may be time consuming and very challenging, there are ways to grasp the essence of these Fulani hairstyles. In the video below I created two gorgeous Fulani hairstyles (Fulani inspired really) with my Afro Kinky 4b/4c clip ins from Xoticahair.com. It’s nice to have these clip ins to enhance my styles with more volume and length whenever I want it. All the time 🙂

Tips on Creating Your Own Fulani Hairstyles

  • Tendrils: A signature detail in most of these styles are braided or twisted tendrils that hang from temple regions of your head. They also hang at various lengths depending on the length of your overall style.
  • Adorn Your Tresses: Fulani hairstyles are gassed up to level GODDESS when they are adorned with hair jewelry like beads, loc jewelry, and cowrie shells. Make your styles more interesting with a mix of hair jewelry in metallic, wood, and other finishes.
  • Twists & Braids: These styles typically are have twists or cornrows  as little details to the style. The elaborate Fulani hairstyles are 100% cornrowed.
  • Make It Your Own: Make it your own when you can’t be bothered or your braiding skills just aren’t there.  Keep the twisting and braiding to a minimum like I did for these two styles. It’s also results in an easy take down process.

Are you going to be creating a Fulani-inspired hairstyle this summer?

Crochet Braid Style Review: Sensationnel 50′ Samba Twist Braid Crochet Twists

Crochet Twists Styles Sensationnel Samba Twist
Summer is right around the corner and you know what that means? It’s going to be hot. 🙂 That’s the truth, but it also means you’re about to be flooded with box braids, faux locs,and so many other protective styles all across your social media. So why not kick it off with something ridiculously affordable and easy to do like these crochet twists I knocked out in 3 hours for less than $10.

Exhibit A, B, & C all the way to Z

These crochet twists cost me a total of $8 dollars. Like Drake I tell no lies (well in his “No Lies” song at least). I purchased 6 packs of Sensationnel Samba Twists  crochet twists for a total of $12, but I only ended up using 4 packs. If you don’t have a big calabash of a noggin like me then you might even use less.
Wait lady! Explain the $8 price for these bomb crochet twists please?
Of course! I purchased this hair from Samsbeauty.com on a Buy One Get One Free Deal. The price at the time for each pack was 3.99. So when you calculate it all the four packs that I used cost $8 total! Samsbeauty typically has this hair in a BOGO free deal, but the price fluctuates between 3.99 and 4.99.
The “catch”?
I honestly think the reason this hair is so inexpensive is because of it’s really frizzy texture (as you’ll see in the video). However, your “trash” or “treasure” perception of this hair is really dependent on the look you’re going for. I really love the look of old, frizzy extensions, but I don’t always want to wait for my style to get that phase. Usually by the time it gets to that phase I’m ready to move on to the next style. So yeah. It’s all about the vibe and style you’re going for with this hair.
How long will it last?
It really depends on how well you take care of the style. If you tie it down nightly, then it just might could last for 3-4 weeks, but if you’re reckless and sleeping on it with no bonnet (*raises hand) then 2 -3 weeks. Overall I really loved the style and just might buy two more packs to get ready to install it in the summer. It definitely gives me the grunge, idgaf, “I’m a Boss Like Rihanna” vibe that I love to drown my self in from time to time. 🙂 Hope this little review helps and you enjoy the video.

Luv,Mika
