I love styles that look intricate, like they took forever to achieve, but really they’re pretty easy to get done. This is one of those styles. It really comes down to six twists pinned up. I waited to do this tutorial so that I would be able to show what it looks like on my own hair. Big crochet braided hair is not required to achieve this awesome protective style.
The state of your hair – textured or straight – when you begin is really up to you. I go for big, air-dried or stretched hair because I like the fullness it gives the style. You do want to make sure your hair is well moisturized; as this is a style you can keep in for a few days.
- Bobby pins
- 2 hair clips to hold the sections
- Separate your hair into front and back sections (part from ear to ear), clip to hold in place.
- Divide the back section down the middle and make 2 two-strand twists on each side.
- Secure each twist underneath the other with a bobby pin.
- In the front section, part your hair how you like it (middle or side-part), clip to hold 1 section.
- Divide the other section in half (top to bottom) and two-strand twist each.
- Secure each twist in the back with bobby pins.
- Repeat steps 5 and 6 on the other section in the front.
Voila! That’s it. On my hair this looked a little more like a faux bob style because of how loosely I twisted my hair in the back sections. If you two-strand twist your hair tighter, you will get more of the detailed look I had with the crochet braid style. I like it both ways. Happy styling ladies!
