Hair style review

Hello everyone. 

So I got my hair braided with box-braids on the 16th September for a month. I loved the colour that I picked. Which matched the bottom ends of my hair. 
The braids and the colour suited my face however they were to thick on my hair. 
My hair is thin so it would have been better if they where thinner which I asked for but she was worried about time. With the price I paid they didn't last long cause of weighing down my actual hair because of the thickest. 
I have naturally curly hair but not Afro where it's kinky and thick with growth. It's more like Asian hair.
I'm not saying it was a bad job just that maybe they are not familiar with my hair type for box braids. 
I got my hair done in Leeds market and paid £70
Bought the expressions from hair city in Leeds colour number 30. It was £1.99 a pack and I used 2. 

In the picture above you can see how thin my hair is with the space on my scalp. I love the braids and the colour and so did everyone that saw me. But they might have lasted longer if they were thinner. 

In this one above you can see my hair has grown so my scalp is not as noticeable and the picture above. 

I would get them done again cause them easy for this cold winter. My hair won't be dry or be fizzy with the cold wind.

Modelling shoot

So this post is all about a professional photo shoot that I paid for 2 years ago in Manchester . 
I was  referred by a friend so the make-up and hair and shoot was free. Only paid for the photos and a few items of make-up and hair products I liked.
I brought in all the clothes and accessories I wore.

What I'm wearing above:
Purple vest top - Primark
Leopard sheer top - Next outlet

Demin strapless dress - Tiptop 
Fish net cut off gloves - Poundworld 
Record earrings - Primark
Black stone necklace - Flee Market 

Same as above 

Black high tops -international 

My nails were done before I went for the shoot. They were done in the Leeds Market. There was  special £25 acrylic nails.

I  will be honest getting professional photos done by an agency can be pricey so I would be careful in how many pictures you want. Also that they are for a special occasion for example family husband and wife or whatever you feel is special. The reason I say this because you only need a few pictures like 5 or 10. Also most agencies tend to have an instalment plan so you not paying it all at once. 
After that I'm not saying I regret paying for my photos. I don't at all and the number of photos I is 20 of an A4 size and 2 double that. 

There will be another post of a different shoot where I did my hair and make -up shortly after this. 

Love Sultaana :)

Black v-neck T-shirt- Primark
Green & grey tartan skirt - Best Leeds
Burgundy Blazer - H&m
Black tights - Primark
Tan heeled boots - International
Green butterfly earrings- thrifed

You can always add a scaf to this look and a wrap over if it's not warm enought. 
Hope you have a lovely day.
