Trying out protective hairstyles with Joanna George
#SpellSquad influencer Joanna George test runs new protective styles and talks us through her future hairstyle ideas.
What has changed about the way you style your hair in the last year?
I’ve definitely stepped out of my comfort zone by experimenting with more natural hairstyles. Before I would only wear my hair in a ballet bun, if I didn’t have braids in. But now I’m rocking braid outs, canerows and headwraps. I’m learning to proudly embrace my natural hair and all of its unique qualities.
What did you like about wearing the latest Urban Water Wave?
It’s great to wear curls/coils whilst still protecting my hair and avoiding heat. It was my first time ever doing a crochet style, and I was thrilled with the outcome. I’ll be doing it again.
What’s your favourite protective style?
It would have to be either passion twists or Senegalese twists. They’re both styles that I think suit my personality and compliment my features. I’m just in love with how beautiful twist styles look.
Any plans to switch up your look any further?
I prefer styles that don’t draw too much attention. But one trend that I would love to try out is temporarily a hair colour wax. I really miss dyeing my hair, so I’d probably go for a gorgeous copper colour.
