One of my favourite things to do is transition one hairstyle into another and have a completely different look from one day to the next. My current flat twist hairstyle is the perfect example. This is the third hairstyle that I’ve managed to achieve using the same canvas and all I’ve done is refresh the flat twists on the sides.
This week I tucked the ends of my hair back in. I refresh the twists by spritzing with my water and aloe mixture, applying my leave in conditioner and sealing with a whipped shea butter mix.
Unravel the front section of your hair in a U shape. I rubbed my scalp with the pads of my fingers to give the twist out a fuller look; put the hair in the front aside using either a clip or a hair slide.
Braid the hair upwards from the back in a simple cornrow. Pin the end of the cornrow down.
Create a pompadour by pinning to create your preferred shape.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t really expect to love this hairstyle when I decided to do it but I absolutely do! I love the juxtaposition of the curly, slightly messy front against the very put together back.
