"Chosen Vessel's Up-Do"

Ok, I have been trying different styles and this is the second up-do that I am pretty comfortable wearing outside the house. As you can see, I am due for a retightening but my appointment is not for another 2 weeks. It is weird because sometimes getting my hair retightened every 6 weeks is fine while other times my hair grows so fast I could actually go in 4 weeks.


How often do you get your locks retightened?

Very cute. You look great.

I get my retights 7-8 wks but I'm about to push it farther out 9-10 wks. I like the fuller and looser look and I might be ready to start doing it on my own.

Love the up do! What have you used to secure it?

On the retightening front, I am new to all of this - I have been thinking about it in the past few days because I think my roots are looking quite untidy. My first appointment was 3 weeks ago and my next is in 4 weeks time. I am worried that by then I will look a real mess!

That hairstyle looks so cute on you. I get my hair retightened very 6-8 weeks. I am due for one soon.

Chosen Vessel said...

Cheleskilove, yes I finally did it, I am going to keep trying different things to add some variety. I will visit your website to join in this fun game of TAG!

Tanya- Thanks!

Mel- Thanks! I just used a good ole fashion scrunchy. I found one that was large enough to hold all of my hair in an up-do without giving me a headache (smile).

Tammy- Thanks!

I like the up-do on you - but it really doesn't look like you need a retightening. I usually do mine every 4-5 weeks but, truthfully, I don't like the first two weeks afterwards - I need the new growth to hide the parting.

Chosen Vessel said...

Thanks Brenda!

Your updo looks good. I got 4 words to say about your locs be-u-ti-ful locks!

Chocolata said...

Your hair looks sooooo nice! Up do's are so fun, they can be classy and casual all at the same time.

I go for a retightening every 6 weeks in the warmer months and every 8 weeks in the colder ones when it seems to grow slower.

Chosen Vessel said...

Thank you for the wonderful compliment Valenciajaz (((smiles))).

Thanks Chocolata. I schedule for the entire year because my loctician is sought out. One thing I need to assess is how my hair grows throughout the seasons and think about that when I am scheduling my appointments for the year.
