Afros On The Runway :: Guido Maria Kretschmer Autumn/Winter 2013/14 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin

Guido Maria Kretschmer showcased his Autumn/Winter 2013/14 collection at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin on 01.17.13

The models’ hair was styled in high shaped Afros. I think the style really complemented all the outfits and added sophistication to the show. The line features outfits for a variety of occasions. Including dressing down casual to dressed up to the 9 glamorous.

Here are some pictures from the show…enjoy ♥

Top Natural Hair Tutorials Of The Week 1.17 - 1.24


In no particular order:

Video #1: Textured Updo for “Natural Hair” from mrskw7′s Channel.

In this tutorial,  mrskw7 shows how to achieve a simple elegant protective style with textured hair. This can be hair that has been previously braided out or twisted out. This style can be worn to work or even to church. It is also great for protecting the ends during the winter season.

Video # 2: The Dirty Pin up for Natural Hair from Nakia D.’s Channel.

In this tutorial, Nakia D. shows how to turn an old twist out into a sophisticated updo. This is perfect for those days when your twist out is not looking as good anymore but you have no time to do your regular wash routine.

Video # 3: 80  Natural Hair | Vintage Updo (Protective Style) from immaDstarra’s Channel

In this tutorial, immaDstarra uses synthetic braiding hair to achieve a beautiful twisted protective updo. This is a great technique if you are tired of wearing your hair out or messing with it and you want it tucked away for a while. Also great for those with short and medium lengths who have run out of options for their hair and want to try something new.

Video # 4:  Marley Twists: 4 Bun Styles from GirlGoneNatural’s Channel

In this tutorial, GirlGoneNatural shows four types of buns that can be worn with Marley Twists, Braids or long hair. She gives lots of ideas for those who love wearing buns, but like to change it up once in a while.
