Quick Curly Drawstring Ponytail For My Prayrior 365 Daily Prayer Planner Interview With WAPN 91.5

July 23, 2019 by Seymone Brutus

Since 2016 I've been all about natural, curly hairstyles! If there are no curls, it's a no go for me. Why? Because my precious 3-year-old daughter tells me she wants to do everything like me, including her hairstyle. It's so important to me that she loves herself and she loves her hair. Every time she looks in the mirror with a big smile after I style it and says "I love it!", my heart smiles! If we're not pressed for time I'll ask her how does she want me to do her hair. Her response is usually "curly ponytails". It's the cutest!

Yesterday, I had my 2nd interview with Word And Praise 91.5 radio station. The owner and host Shellye has been such a blessing discussing with me a special daily prayer planner I designed called Prayrior.

Two days prior I attended my friend's wedding and styled my hair in a frohawk with a drawstring ponytail. It was a quick decision because I didn't have time to separate the curls in a curly drawstring ponytail I purchased earlier that day. The results were beautiful! It's essentially how I would wear my real hair if it was just as full. My hair has recent breakage and heat damage from a recent sew-in. So I have that wavy ends thing going on towards the front-right of my hair.



Nevertheless, on Monday I had just enough time to brush out the curls with my Denman brush and get the bushy curly look I wanted. While I missed a few pieces in the front, it was so cute! Another hair growth goal of mine! Check out my hair and testimony of Prayrior 365 Daily Prayer Planner below!

August 3, 2018 by Seymone Brutus


If you're wondering if you're ready for a new hairstyle this post is for you. According to Today, women change their hair 150 times in their lifetime. I'm trying to crunch numbers in my head right now and that sounds a bit off to me but that's neither here nor there. This is about asking you-- what are you waiting for? Are you uncertain? Are you wondering how you'll be perceived? Does your desired look exceed your budget?

Here are 9 ways to tell you're ready for a new hairstyle. 

1. You take long dramatic pauses when looking in the mirror





2. You keep looking at the same hairstyle you love





3. You resort to asking for hair advice in 3rd person





4. You frequent your favorite beauty supply store





5. You binge watch hair tutorials





6. You're constantly playing in your hair





7. You're bored with your everyday look





8. Your friends get involved




9. You make a rash decision to do it yourself





So what do you say? Go for it! Schedule your hair appointment! Put money aside and treat yourself! Come back and thank me after it's done 😍



The Top 3 Ways To Style Your Hair For Exercising

August 2, 2018 by Seymone Brutus



The fit life is dreading for many reasons. Prepping to leave your children is one. And ruining your hair is the big bummer of all. What's the best way to style your hair for a rigorous workout or light walk-- both anticipating sweat


How do you combat the sweat? Here are the top 3 hairstyles that avoid drenched hair and attempt to preserve your hair extensions or curls.  

The Forever Trendy Top Knot

Thick hair or knot (get it), the top knot guarantees dry ends and a youthful glow. Any hairstyle pulled up away from your face takes off 10 years easy. I don't mind the surprised look when I tell people I'm a mother of 4.


The Ballerina Bun

The ballerina bun is a perfect girly statement to have style and pizzazz while you get your workout on. You can pull off this look with a bun maker or a mix match sock.


The Free Frolicious Curls

One of the advantages of textured hair with tight curls and coils is that it springs up and springs free. Just grab a headband to save your edges and avoid sweat falling in your eyes.


How do you like to wear your hair when exercising?

MissKenK Partners With Sally Beauty Giving Short Natural Hair Moms 5 Curly Hairstyles

July 31, 2018 by Seymone Brutus


When I came across @MissKenK's Instagram page I was so excited to finally see a naturalista with my hair length. While I'm aspiring to grow my hair thicker and longer. I love that Kendra rocks her length so effortlessly beautiful! She literally makes every hairstyle look good! On top of giving us all types of hair techniques for curls and coils, she makes hairstyling look so simple and doable. To the point where even a busy, non hairstylist like me can pick up some rods and get amazing results. I don't know if it's just me, but every twist out, Bantu knot out, anything out-of-my-real-hair is an absolute fail. The only hairstyle I do, that I love is when I shingle or finger comb my hair with my favorite styling creme or gel. That's it.

But after watching Kendra aka #HairCutBae I feel like I can try perm rods and get these gorgeous curls. She transforms her rod set into 5 different hairstyles using Design Essentials Natural Almond & Avocado Line, bronze Bobby Pins and a headwrap! It's absolutely gorgeous!
