Neil deGrasse Tyson & Leighann Lord @ The Natl. Arts Club

I recently attended a black tie affair at The National Arts Club so I wanted to glam it up a bit.  I rolled my Sisterlocks on Soft Spikes. I use both the long and the short ones interchangeably. To achieve this style, I pulled my hair back into a loose, comfortable ponytail, sectioned my hair, lightly spritzed it with water and rolled my hair up to the ponytail holder, not to the scalp. I used, approximately 15 Soft Spikes.

I do this for two reasons. First, my hair is long (lower back) and I just don’t have the patience to roll all of it. Second, and most important, not rolling all the way to my scalp puts less pressure on my roots. It’s also infinitely more comfortable to sleep in. The results aren't too bad if I say so myself. :-)
