It’s funny how I’ve lived in Lagos all twenty-something years of my life and there is so much I’m yet to discover about this state. A trip to Epe Mangroves with Cassie opened my eyes to the divide between living in Urban and Rural Lagos, it’s almost like you’re transported to a different state entirely. We planned this trip at different times with different groups of people but eventually ended up going on our own.
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.
I had the privilege of covering Lagos Fashion Design Week courtesy of Fayrouz. i was granted an all access pass and I must say it is one of the coolest things to have ever happened to me. because of all my camera issues, I was unable to get as much pictures as I would have liked, so please manage the few ones I was able to lay my hands on.
I’ve been itching to put my hair away in a protective style and I was bent on doing the crochet thing with kinky hair. I called Tunmise Naturals Salon and unfortunately the one person who could get it done was out of the country. However, I’d seen a few videos before on doing the crochet extensions and decided to hop out of my comfortable lazy bubble and actually try my hands at it. It was surprisingly easy to do and took me just 3 hours.
