Flat Twist How-To

Hi beauties!

So most of you know that a lot of my styles include some sort of flat twist. It’s become so regular that I thought it would be a nice idea to do a detailed video tutorial on the two different ways that I flat twist to achieve such unique looks. Take a look and give the video a thumbs up if it’s helpful.

Creativity Never Sleeps

Hello beauties!

So, it turns out that the saying “Creativity never sleeps” really is true. Earlier this week I had a dream about this awesome flat twist style. It was gorgeous! I thought I’d give a shot at accomplishing it on Monday. Fail. Don’t get me wrong, it was nice but not at all like what I visioned in my dream.

Today, I thought I’d give it another shot. Here’s the video of my effort which yielded another fail but an incredibly nice, unique creative fail! Lol. Let me know what you think.

The Almost Infinity Twist

Hello loves!!

I’ve got some major catching up to do on blog posts but I just wanted to show you all my hair of the day.

I straightened my hair earlier this week so that I could trim my ends and so I’ve been playing with some styles . Today I went with this…

It reminds me a lot of an infinity braid or twist which I love but this is nothing more than two flat twists. I separated my hair into two fairly equal sections. For the front section I flat twisted all if the hair to the left side. And for the back I did the same thing. Lastly I tucked the end of the front flat twist inside the flat twist in the back, and I tucked the end of the back flat twist inside the front one. Here are some more pics!

P.S. I get my iPhone 6 Plus next week so videos coming soon!

Big Beautiful Waves

Last night I had a bit of free time and decided to set my hair in 5 chunky flat twists using Dark & Lovely’s Au Naturale Super Softening Hair Butter. This is the first time I’ve tried a flat twist out and I absolutely love the results! I didn’t do much for styling, pretty much just unraveled the twists.

This style is great for fall when the humidity is low. We’re not quite there in Atlanta so I’ll be staying inside today :o)

Here are some pics:

A Chunky Flat Twist & Bun

Hope you all are doing great. I’ve got that natural hair style new new on deck today!

Decided to try out a new style and I’m seriously digging it. This is a simple chunky flat twist and bun. It’s great for work or to keep your hair up and out of the way on weekends.

Here’s a brief how-to:

First I separated out some hair in the front (this is typically how I start most of my styles). Then I flat twisted that chunk of hair to the left side. I pulled the rest of my hair into a bun and pulled the flat twist back and pinned it close and snug to the bun. That’s it!

Here are some pics

Neon Nike’s and a Flat Twist

Hope you all are having a great Saturday. Mine has been pretty relaxing after a killer workout this morning. Didn’t do much except hit the grocery store so I kept it pretty casual today.

Decided to pull out these neon and gray Nike’s I found at Ross and paired it with some gray leggings and cute neon and gray top I found at Forever XXI. Topped it off with a side flat twist and low bun.
