Let’s play a game called ‘Name The Style’ ? 🙂
Here are photos of how I wore my hair at the Call ceremony two Fridays ago and for a week after.
Braids up the sides that ended in twists, and twists in the middle.
Then the braids and twists were married with some more twisting and held up with several bobby pins, to make an updo that I at first described as a mohawk, but now that I’m looking at it, the front looks like a flat-top haircut.
Anyway, I loved it. If you have a name for my updo, holler in the comments!
Maintenance: I simply oiled my scalp with coconut oil to prevent itching and dandruff, every two days or so.
Tip: If you’re considering recreating the style, it’d look even nicer with longer hair. Look at this photo of a natural with longer hair wearing almost the same style:
And one of my favourite styling tutorials from Laila-Jean (youtube: FusionofCultures) – Channelling Johnny Bravo.
Her hair is much longer of course, so add kinky extensions to the middle as much as you need; a lot for a more dramatic top or if you aren’t a fan of the flat-top finish, just a little.

I had to call the salon in advance to set up an appointment.
Nat has been natural for many years now, and as expected, she handled my hair like a pro.
She helped me choose the style; this was very much appreciated because I had no idea what to do. I needed to keep my hair off my face and a hair band was definitely not an option. In my mind, there was no way a braided style could fit a suit or an adult. ( ._.) But she definitely changed that! I’m looking forward to my next braided style 🙂
Lumo Naturals is a new salon and the owner Farida was interested in getting feedback.
At Lumo Naturals, customers are given a consultancy form to fill. There you state your hair concerns, any issues you may have. I filled mine out and Farida talked me through the points raised. She also promised to email in a few weeks to see how my hair is doing. 🙂
The service was great and I was very happy with my hair.
It’s an awesome protective style because my hair is totally out of my manipulative reach, and my ends that need the most protecting, are further tucked in.
How much did my hair cost? 2000 naira.
Would I visit again? Yes.
Oh and for the Abuja natural, Natural Nigerian products are sold there.
