Maxwell ROCKS!!

I took my big sister to see Maxwell as a birthday present to her. We had a blast. He performed at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. on Friday, October 2nd. Opening acts were Chrisette Michelle (who I like, but am not impressed with live) and Common. Common is a VISION of sexiness in person and he is an amazing performer. He got the crowd hyped. He performed with Bilal, who cut his locks off a few years ago. He sounded great as well.

I've seen Maxwell live before and absolutely feel deeper in love with him than before, but after this performance I'm completely enthralled. Even though it was a huge venue and it was sold out, he made it seem very intimate and he engaged the crowd in his performances. He had what was like conversations with us and made us feel like he was very comfortable which endeared him to all of us even more. He was even kind of freaky nasty, but in a good way (wink). All in all, I had wonderful evening and would do it all over again and again!!

Now, let's talk about locks for a moment. I had my hair in a nice thick bun that took only a few moments. It looked sleek and very classy. I followed the tutorial of a sister named Natralfree on youtube. I posted the first photo so you could see how the bun looked, it's not the best shot, but I'll get better photos next time I do a bun. She uses a hair net to achieve both a low and high bun and makes it so simple that I couldn't believe I didn't think of this myself. If you try it, let me know how it turns out for you!
