Hola Chicas,

You know what they say… necessity breeds invention. The Modified Princess Leia Buns were born out of my need to find a low maintenance, humidity proof style for St. Thomas. It worked, and this is now a mainstay in my routine.

In a comment today from Mzbush she asks for tips on protective hair styles:

I’ve been trying to come up with ways to keep my hair safe from neglect but if you have any tips or ideas, I would love to hear them!

I think a collection of chic and versatile protective, low mani styles would be invaluable to all of us… whether you’re preggo and tired, hot and bothered, desire length, or you just simply need a break from your hair.

So ladies, send in pics and succinct instructions to nikki@curlynikki.com. I’ll post your styles on the blog for all to see. Hopefully the lazy style you never think twice about will inspire and motivate someone else!

We need all lengths, all textures, transitioning, or 100% natural! It can be your head, or your Fotki hair idol, as long as she approves of you sending in her pics!

Later Gators,
Nik

p.s. Two of my afternoon appointments were canceled and I managed to score a half dozen Cinnamon Crunch Bagels from Paneras! Life is good.
