Reserving the Right to Remain Sexy

By January 27th, 202112 Comments

Dear Nikki:

What is your go to dry hairstyle – non-puff?” For example, you have an old dried-up twist out or one that didn’t come out well and you need to run to the mall or to to pick up your kid from school/preschool and you want to look a little cute but don’t want to wear a tired puff. What do you do in a pinch?


I’ve been quite lazy lately, and a tired bun has been my style of choice. On more creative days, I’ve done this with a worn out set:

Reserving the Right to Remain Sexy
I’ve been jazzing up my bun lately with a sexy pomp in the front. I’ve done that 2 days in a row now with tons of compliments. My pomp makes me feel super fierce, so I put on heavy eye liner…total rock star ;) I promise to take a pic next time! By the bye, Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade really is a great edge slicker! It works like gel without the stiffness or the flakies!

What about you divas? How do you salvage your sexy on a flat, frizzy, and fuzzy morning? If you’ve got pics to illustrate, leave a link to your fotki in the comments!

    Nik–I thought you said a little Shea Butter does the trick re slicking the edges?

    a pomp is short for pompadour, basically when you wear a "bump" or pouf in the front of your hair. I part my bangs off, then pull the hair away from my face and pin it towards the crown of my head so it's tall/big.

    Ever seen the "bump it" hair tool? that is a modern take on the pomp.

    Your hair look great. I just started wearing my natural hair…I was wearing tracks to let it grow out. Now I wear the same hair style all the time….I need to learn how to manage my hear and keep it looking healthy.

    Thanks for posting my question. I tried the pompadour and it's pretty cool. I do tend to wear more makeup when I feel like my hair just isn't working.

    Your consider that a bad hair day? I'm jealous in a good way of course. I can only imagine your good hair days? I would rock that in a heart beat with a little mascara and my signature lipgloss….

    I wish I could get my hair to look as good as yours on my bad days!

    buns and flowers are always feminine. beautiful flowing ethnic scarves tied gypsy style are always a great accessory option 4 me as well.

    I like to accessorize with cute hair flowers/interesting hair clips on a curly loose bun.

    I'm currently transitioning (14 months post)but when my braidouts look dried up or don't come out right, I'll pin down the sides and turn it into a faux hawk.
