3 Ways to Slay Your Edges From "Light" to "Ultimate"

— September 02, 2020

What kind of an edge-slayer are you? Here are three ways to achieve every edge look from a light slay to an ultimate slay.

1. LIGHT NATURAL SLAY: For those with 3A - 4A curls, if you want semi-slayed edges that resemble a natural look, your best bet is to slather on a little of your Twisted Sista Amazing Dream Curl Gel and gently smooth along your hairline to give your edges just the slightest pop.

2. WAVY SLAY: If you want edges that look more like finger waves, you need a mixture of pomade and gel or pomade and mousse. Basically, your mixtures needs to ensure the hair is pliable enough to be styled this way. Try mixing your Originals by Africa’s Best Honey and Castor Edge Gel with just tiny bit of mousse or your Curls Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste and emulsify it in your hands until it becomes like a jelly-like substance. Apply it to your hairline and use the brush end of your Baby Tress Edge Styler, and brush your edges in a quick waving fashion to create waves.

3. ULTIMATE SLAY: Your best edge slay can be created with a thick pomade like your Eden BodyWorks Control Edge Glaze. It has some SERIOUS hold. This is for those who want hyper-defined edges, editorial-esque edge swoops and loops, and incredibly sleek looks. Whether your hair is wet or dry, this pomade works like a charm with your Baby Tress Edge Styler.
