There really aren’t that many African American wedding hairstyles out there, so when my cousins wedding FINALLY rolled around, I had no idea about what I wanted to do with Bunny’s hair.
We bounced around a few different ideas for weeks, everything from a braid out to a twist out to a Bantu knot out (there’s a lot of “outs”) to Curlformers.
After talking about it for awhile, we decided on this style!
Her wedding hairstyle
What all of you don’t know is that I have been working on my twist outs for MONTHS now!
Twist outs are my very favorite natural hair style out there and I really wanna learn how to a great one and I am so proud of this one.
Future African American wedding hairstyles, here we come!
To begin this hair do, I washed Bunny’s hair (for those of you that don’t know this, Bunny is my nine year old sister) in four braids with Honey & Almond Moisture Whip Shampoo.
I didn’t focus too much on her strands, but on her scalp instead because that’s where the product build-up would be.
Here is what her twists looked like
Once her hair was washed, we went to our room and put a movie on while I started her hair.
I clipped three of the sections out of the way, leave one free in the back.
I sectioned off an inch-by-inch section, added lots of VO5 conditioner, combed it through one more time, then started two-strand twisting the section, twirling her hair’s ends around my finger when I reached them.
Here’s what her hair looked like before I fluffed and separated her curls
Okay so this part is really important! I tied a scarf around the edges of her hair while I was twisting.
This way, her twists wouldn’t start right along her hairline for a cleaner, neater look.
Here is the back of her twists
And the white stuff is conditioner
I removed her twists two days later.
To do so, I added peanut oil over the twist, then slowly pulled the two strands apart.
I am so proud of myself for achieving this hairstyle.
I’ve wanted to do a really great twist out for several months now!
I’m pretty excited.
