Bangs and Twists- A Natural Hair Style Tutorial

Some folks can twist but can’t cornrow… I’m one of them! Instead of braiding the back and sides, I created flat twists. I then set the top in two strand twists, and released them to rock a twist-out (instead of rolling and pinning the twists like Tia did). Check out the video for more details:

I started on freshly cleaned and conditioned hair. For styling products I used Uncle Funky’s Daughter Super Curl on the ends of the twists, and ECO Styler Gel Klear on the flat twists.

1. I carve out a half moon section in the top of my head and clip it to hold it out of the way.

2. I start the flat twists from the back going upward. Making my parts about 1/2 inch wide. About 1/4 inch before finishing the twists I roll the ends around my finger.

3. Once I’m done with the flat twists, with the section in the top I part it in half horizontally and create 2 rows of flat twists still coming down towards my forehead.

4. I then use bobby pins to pin the twists down in the top so that they will lay flat once dry.

5. Once it’s all dry I take out the twists in the 1/2 moon section in the top and unravel just the free edge of the flat twists to complete my bang. As the days progress I just fluff and fluff to make my bang bigger.

This style lasts me 2 weeks since the part I sleep on stays in the flat twists!

    I ADORE this style. I saw this on MahoghanyKnots.com a while back and tried it a couple of weeks ago. It came out GREAT! And it's super-easy. I'm just now getting to wearing protective styles being as tho my hair's at a nice length (I BC'd a few months ago).

    This is a great tutorial. This style looks like something I can rock to work. Do you retwist the twists in front every night?
