braidedcrownOver at Cocoa Fab today, I put up a new episode of Mattie's Mix where I did my first tutorial! Not too long ago, Angela Simmons wore the cutest braided crown and I thought I'd give the look a try. Turns out, I actually pulled it off. Take a look at the video and see I how I got this look.


Because of my four year blogiversary & Valentine's Day, I thought I'd do a little giveaway. My good friends over at Motions sent over their new Motions Heat Styled Straight Finish set which includes the cleanser, conditioner and sealer. It's for "Natural Textured" ladies, which means natural hair and if you have a natural textured weave. These products are awesome, I especially love the sealer! So, I'm giving four lucky winners the whole set :) Just tweet or Instagram me how you keep it interesting and mix it up when it comes to your style and/or beauty. Don't forget to use the hashtag #mattieologie and #curly2straight when you do. Oh, and in case you're not already, be sure to follow Motions and me on Twitter and Instagram. I'll announce the four winners on Friday, 2/14.
