I am not here to lie to you so let me just say with all honesty that I tried this easy peasy style and I failed. One day I will get this flat twist thing down to a science but today isn’t the day and neither was last week.
Mini Marley though? She knows how to work her fingers around her natural hair like nobody’s business and this twist and style creation I’m sure we will all agree is pretty neat.
Styling natural hair can be really exciting if you know what you are doing. It becomes almost a daily or weekly challenge to see how far you can take your hair in terms of styling and creativity.
On Facebook we celebrate hair styles daily showing styles with or without added hair and what the women in our community create is just admirable. If you are style challenged we encourage you to check out the our page but we also encourage you to sit in front of the mirror with a moisturizer and a comb and try something new yourself.
Even though I do not know how to flat twist, there are some simple tools that can really help with styling, some are pretty random but they do help, here are four random things that can help you create the perfect style.
1. Gel – There are so many alcohol free gels on the market, it is almost impossible not to make at least one a favorite. Gel helps to keep your hair neat even and gets rid of those few flyaways that just will not cooperate.
2. Rat tail comb* – This comb helps to keep your parts neat especially for intricate styles that need to look as if you spent a little time doing them. Use the pointy end of the comb only for natural hair!
3. Goodie bands* – Not only do these hold your hair in place, they are great for separating sections of hair keeping it out of the way until you are ready for it.
4. Detangling Brush – This could be a denman brush* or any brush that you are comfortable using to keep you hair smooth as you style it.
Well watch and learn how to create this pretty style and let us know what you think.
