If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen my announcement for the fourth and final Get Wigged Nigeria class for this year. Ella and I would be going all out and spilling all our wig making tricks and hacks in this class. Also, we’ve included new learning points, so if you’re in Lagos, make it a date with us! As usual, it would be a small class so we can give everyone our undivided attention, the seats would be limited and would be given on a first-to-pay basis.

I mentioned here that there were already talks of another workshop, we loved the feedback we got from the first and decided to give it another go so more people can benefit from the workshop/training. We got requests to have workshops in different states and hopefully we would get around to doing just that some time in the nearest future but for this second edition, we’ll be sticking to our main base; Lagos! Everything you need to know about the workshop is stated below and remember we’ll only be taking a few people to ensure it’s a hands-on experience!
After months of planning for the workshop, it finally held last week Saturday! (you can read the introductory post I did on it here. We started the workshop at 12p.m on the dot with introductions and basic knowledge of wig making. After that, we made sure every participant learnt and practiced the following:
- How to make a crochet wig
- Techniques for threading needles
- How to make a U-part wig
- How to make a wig using lace closures
- How to make a wig with the round closing method for bangs/fringe/side parts without lace closures.
A couple of weeks ago, Ella of NaturalGirlOnABudget came to me with the idea of organizing a wig making workshop to train a few women on the art and processes involved in making wigs. I was excited and jumped on it because honestly, wig making is a good way of earning money whether as a major source of income or as a side hustle or just as a hobby for yourself and friends. We contacted Tosin of NaijaNaturals and she readily accepted to assist in making it a reality (Thank you!). We’ve tried as much as possible to be fair with the pricing considering the recent economy recession, but you have to spend money to get money, right? All the details are available below:
When: 8th of October.
Time: 12p.m – 6p.m
Where: Venue details are sent upon registration.
What You Should Come With: Just your awesome self and a right attitude towards learning! Continue reading “The Wig Making Workshop”
The Blogger Point (TBP) is an agency dedicated to bridging the gap between Nigerian bloggers and brands, I discovered them accidentally on Instagram and so far, they’ve been a good support system and community for Nigerian bloggers. The TBP Brunch held at DueByChefD, they also provided an endless supply of wines/drinks and light snacks although I could only sample the meatballs which were really good.
My hair has been seriously frustrating me, it’s almost like it tries to do the opposite of what I want every single time. I’ve experimented with a lot of protective styles but couldn’t bring myself to stick with any for more than two weeks. There was the Sew-in, Krochet Kulture Twists, Vixen Crochet, Crochet Wig and The Closure Wig
Project Loving You is an initiative of TheGirlJourney, a Non Govermental Organization that is dedicated to helping girls transform self love into self doubt and setting new standard of beauty that does not discriminate. I was excited and nervous at the same time when approached to be part of this, excited because I get to meet you guys and choose someone to join me for the photoshoot, nervous because I’m a shy person. Let’s get into the details;
This year I got to attend fashion week courtesy the good people of Dark and Lovely (you can view my experience last year here), natural hair and braids were everywhere I turned from guests to the runway models. It felt good to know that more people (yes! There were guys too) than I thought are embracing natural hair, I had quite an eyeful and these were my favorite looks;
I came across NaijaHairCanGrow when I was newly natural and always scouring the net for information on hair care and although, the owner; Dabs has relaxed hair (which is long and amazing by the way), I still found the site helpful and I still do. NaijaHairCanGrow would be celebrating her 5th Year anniversary this June with a bang, if you missed last year’s salon day out, you can take a peek here
