I love using extensions to create these looks!!! Today's episode was about making foods that your kids will enjoy so I saw fit that @hautemommie wear her hair in 2 ponytails! It was such a cute idea for this kid-friendly episode! They had such fun recipes that I can't wait for you guys to see!! With 2 more #ButterAndBrown episodes remaining, I'm trying to use little to no product on Leslie's hair to keep it as versatile as possible. During our first episode taping today, I installed a custom wig that I made for her. I didn't take any photos bc today was a lil hectic. But tomorrow I'm bringing the wig back for you all to see! So stay tuned! I used the same 3 products I've been using these past few days. #HicksEdgeControl for her #BabyHairs, #StayHairspray by #StraightRequest for a light hold and #SilkRadience by @vonteproducts for shine.
Today's first look was so fun to create! I braided a fishtail into a ponytail and it was magical. I used minimal product to achieve this look. Just a lil #HicksEdgeControl and Stay hairspray by #StraightRequest. I love this stuff. It can be reapplied every day without making the hair feel crunchy or flake up. But just case it does get a lil stiff in between styles, I spray a little #SilkRadience by @vonteproducts to soften it up again and her hair is ready for the next style.
This was Leslie's 2nd look of the day! We kept the Chaka but switched it up a bit....let go of the bun and braided up the front to give a funky side pin up vibe....easy to transition from her first look of the day.
Today was a great day! First day of filming #ButterAndBrown in Atlanta and @hautemommie was a doll! I did wand curls with a 1 and a half inch barrel iron and a simple center braid to pull her bangs back.
I used Stay hairspray by #StraightRequest to wand her hair. #TIGI Pro Workable Flexible Hold spray to set and #HeadRush from @BedHeadbyTIGI for shine!!! Baby hairs!!!! My secret is a medley! I mix Spiker by @Joico and #Got2Be Ultra Glued by @SchwarzkopfUSA . It stayed all day and I'm sure will still be laid by the morning! Lol
I'm thinking back to my birthday. This year I wanted to have a #Wakanda themed dinner party.....instead, we opted to go on an adventure as citizens of Wakanda. I asked my closest friends to take off work and celebrate with me. It was totally last minute but they all showed up, no questions asked. #GetYouSomeFriendsLikeMine #BeAFriendLikeMe
I can't believe I missed your 2 previous shows. I promise to do all that I can to never miss another! You're so brilliant at what you do.
Hearing you tell your perspective on motherhood was awesome. It was funny. It was emotional. It was real. And it was beautiful! All the women apart of the #Momnipresent cast last night were amazing!
But seeing my friend on stage, beautiful and bright, so articulate and commanding of everyone's attention, full movement in her hair , and skin so melanin, I wanted to scream #WakandaForever as she took her bow! I was so proud, not just bc she was my friend, but bc she is royalty and in a sea of others, she brought the perfect amount of #BlackGirlMagic!
I left that theatre feeling so inspired!
Here are a few Snapchat clips I took of Ryane's piece from the play Momnipresent.

Today's bride is Tiffany! I will never forget Tiffany and how she met her now husband. I enjoy hearing love stories and hers was one of my favorites! She found love by being spontaneous! It was one of the craziest most fun love stories I've heard. I love it! I was honored to be apart of such a beautiful day.
