Look of the Month
Go glam with sexy, chic coils crafted by Dashonna Johnson of Hairloks by Arlette in Scottsdale, AZ.
Shampoo mane and apply leave-in conditioner before sectioning off tresses into diamond-shaped parts. Sections can range from medium to large, depending on how big or small you want the curl to be.
Comb glaze and a curl-defining cream through the ends and twist into Bantu Knots.
Allow hair to completely dry before releasing from the Bantu Knots. Once dry, unravel each knot by twisting it counter-clockwise. Using a wide-tooth comb, comb through the hair from the root to two inches out to build on the hair’s height and definition.
Step 4: Finish
Continue to fluff out the hair as you unravel each knot. When all strands are undone, pin the sides down and let the bangs hang over for a voluminous silhouette.
STAR STYLE INSPIRATION
In addition to her star turn on the reality TV show The New Atlanta, Africa Miranda is also a singer and a model. The gorgeous star always looks flawless with her voluminous coils. How does she get her signature curls? “I set the front [of my hair] with bendable rollers and the back is a twist-out with rods. When I want more definition, I use a small-barrel curling iron.”
