Show and Tell- Fierce Friday

By January 27th, 202116 Comments

Hola chicas!

It’s that time again! The images below are of CN readers at their flyyest…at work, on the town, and with the fam. Showing us all that natural hair is not a fad, it’s a way of life…an extension of our beauty! Click on the images to enlarge them:

This is a two day old braid-out on my transitioning hair. I was on my way to the library 🙂 I absolutely love your site!!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday

Hi Nikki! Love your blog and your new addition is cute! This is my impromptu shoot before I headed out the door for a long day of classes. It’s a wash and go with some man-made bangs.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday

This is a twist-out that was taken my birthday weekend, on the way to lunch with my girlfriends.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday
I’m newly natural since May 2010. Big chopped a few weeks after last relaxed, so I basically got a fade! LOL!
Here’s what I think will be my new staple style for a while–Frohawk with finger coils on top. My homegirl cornrows the sides and I coil the rest. This was “our” first attempt, just minutes before going out for Girls’ Night last Saturday!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday

I just had to tell someone about the most awesome 1st and second day hair I have ever and I do mean ever had with a wash and go, big,bouncy curls….I’m way too excited lol….here is a picture of my second day hair after the pineapple method and steamy shower.

This is me out to dinner at Shula’s in Miami, rocking my curly crop. I love being natural in South FL where everyone is so obsessed with silky smooth hair, color and keratin.

This is my very first time washing my hair and letting it air dry before work. I wasn’t comfortable with it at first but it grew on me. I used mixed chicks products which defined my curls. I really like it and have been trying to style it like this more often. What do you guys think?Show and Tell- Fierce Friday
I was rocking a flexi-rod set and headed to dinner and the movies with the husband for date night. I finally found a curly style that he likes, well actually he loves this hair-do…lol.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday

The only nice day out causes a nice fro-hawk! I twisted the front with a mini twist out fro in the middle and in the back. Yay TWA!

I decided to have my hair braided in a sophisticated look for work. My hair was braided into a french roll with part of the braid twisted. I was inspired by a twisted hairstyle that I saw on this website.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday

    Robyn, you are going to have to give up that flower because I love me some flowers in my hair (LOL). Rae S., Lanae, Brianna, Aubrey, Seyi, Nakeysha, Stacey, Cia E, and Tiffany, I want my hair like that, but just not at the same time (LOL)! All of you, ladies are just beautiful!

    Nikki – Gia is SOOOOO gorgeous!!!! And growing up sooooo fast!!! I am SURE you are a proud mother… and you should be!!! What a blessing!!! 🙂

  • Brey says:

    @Dana THANKS so much for the compliment….well the combo that I used this time was I had just freshly washed and conditioned and DC with cholesterol and coconut oil. On soaking wet hair I applied the Shea moisture coconut and hibiscus curl and style milk and then my Tresemme naturals conditioner on top and sealed with a little coconut oil and topped it off with Eco Styler Gel (clear). I think the definition comes more from the technique than the products. I have a post on my personal blog regarding my technique if you are interested 🙂

    AUBREY – gorgeous hair!! What product combo did you use to get such AWESOME frizz-free curls and the ability to achieve such beautiful second day hair????? My curls are just a tad bit tighter, but my shape/cut is about the same as yours. I'm always battling with frizz on day two regardless of the nighttime routine and/or products…satin cap, pineappling, loose pony..etc.


  • Yolanda says:

    Where is Gia?

  • LadyWritesTheBlues says:

    I agree! Love Fierce Fridays & seeing the lil one starting it off! lol

  • SweetThang says:

    All the the ladies hair look nice. I like Lanae's earring organizers. I need one of those. My jewelry box is so junky. Where is Baby Gia and her chubby cheeks?

  • Anonymous says:

    Love Fierce Fridays. All the ladies look great. Lanae where did you get your earring holder from?

  • brianna says:

    All of these styles are so pretty! If my head was not so big I would try Tiffany's! lol But all of the looks are cute, I love coming to curlynikki and getting inspiration

    Got to have a pic of Baby Gia, Nik. I'm always looking for her adorability on Friday.

  • sophie says:

    Go girls, y'all look really FIERCE. I love all the styles. I think the man made bangs are dynamite, they add some funk to the air…
    Good job natural beauties, you ladies are full of inspiration. I love your site, it is on my faves

  • Naturally Zee says:

    Beautiful Ladies!!! Nikki Where's Gia, her preciuosness makes my day!!

    Lanae girl, I'm going to have to get one of those organizers for my earrings!!!

    Hey Nik, where's Baby G?? My daughter's like looking at her natural style on Fierce Friday :). We love your site. And to all the ladies feature, your hair is on point.

  • Dani says:

    I can completely agree with you. When I come home to Miami, I LOVE that my hair is wild and free instead of straight which is the norm. BUT, when I am in the mood, I get the best Dominican Blow out's there too!!
