I’ve been getting this more and more so I’m very excited to be writing this post.
I’ve gathered seven different twist hairstyles that all would make great work natural hair styles for people in a more conservative setting.
I really hope you guys enjoy this!
By now I’m sure that all naturals are aware of the benefits of wearing two strand twists.
They help keep moisture in your curls, they can be done on hair of all lengths, and you get a bonus style when you unravel them!
But do you know just how versatile twists can be? Here I’m going to talk about seven different ways that you can wear twists (two strand, three strand, sister, etc) besides the typical full set kind.
One: Half braided
I did this by braiding the top half of my younger sister’s twists and securing it with a purple Flexi8 hair clip. The clip is totally optional, of course. A hair elastic or hair clip would work as well.
Two: Twisted updo
There’s no right or wrong way to do this hair style. All you need is a hair clip, a banana clip, or bobby pins. Gather your twists in the back of your head and pin them in place with the hair accessory of your choice. You can also leave a few twists out in the front for bangs.
Three: Flat twisted & pinned
I achieved this look by adding four flat twists on either side of my sister’s head before putting the rest of her hair in two strand twists. After that I rolled, pinned, and tucked the twists until I got a braided updo look. Super cute and great for the office!
Four: Twists & cornrows
For this hair style I added five side cornrows before twisting up the rest of her hair. If you don’t know how to cornrow yet, then you can always do some flat twists instead.
Five: Braided twists
Okay so this one is pretty self-explanatory. I simply put my sister’s twists in a Dutch braid, which is the same thing as a cornrow. I’m sure a French braid would look as nice if not better, but I haven’t yet mastered that braid so I stuck with the Dutch braid.
Six: Braided updo
I had my sister lean over her bed with her hair hanging over the edge, then I Dutch braided her twists going towards the top of her head. Lastly, I secured it with a couple of bobby pins and added a bright yellow flower.
Seven: Tied twists
This is a great hair style for the office, weddings, and as a bonus it’s super protective.
Start by gathering three twists in each hand at the very top of the head and tie them like you would for the first part of tying your shoelace.
Now move down a little, gather a few more twists on either side right below that knot and tie those. Keep repeating until you get to the nape of your neck and end by tucking your ends underneath.
