Teyonah Parris inspired Fab Natural Hair Updo



A few weeks ago, pictures of Teyonah Parris and her stunning red carpet look for the 2013 SAG Awards hit social media and The Natural Hair Community by storm. It wasn't her stunning dress that stole the show, but it was her HAIR!! She graced the red carpet with this jaw dropping natural hair updo. That was very elegant and sleek with a side of jazzy.  Her hair was sculpted and created by Felicia Leatherwood, a celebrity natural hairstylist.  You can check out her website: www.lovingyourhairwithnaturalcare.com for more information about her.

After looking at the style from many different angles, I decided to take a stab at it and to try to create my version of the hairstyle, so with stretched hair I gave it a try.  The look was rather easy to do and took approx. 20 mins if that.



What you will need:   
Stretched hair - it can be blown-out or stretched from a bun, twist-out, braid-out etc...
2 ponytail holders
Bobby Pins
Brush
Comb
Hair Moisturizer
Hair Oil
Gel

Check out my YouTube Video below on how I created the look!
