WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
I am soooooo happy that my friend Shoine sent me photos of her twists. Just let me say, I am SUPER jealous of Shoine's hair.
She has beautiful hair. It doesn't look real!
The pics you see are of twists with a coif on the side. It is really nice.
Shoine has been natural for a very long time, so she has her hair care regimen mastered. She wears her hair mostly straight, but during the summer months, she wears it curly.
To accomplish this style, I used two of my old trustee hair clips and about 2 hair pins. I made two sections with the twists in the back, then I twisted the left back section to the top of my head and secured it with one of the clips. I left the ends of the twists hanging forward. I also left the twists in the front hanging loosely. I took the right back section of hair and twisted it to the top as well. I secured it with the other clip. Then, I pulled the twists in the front right over to join the twists on the front left side. I secured them with hair pins so they would not hang in my face.
I decided to flat iron my hair for my cousin's wedding. Instead of blow drying my hair, I decided to set my hair on rollers and sit under the hair dryer. I was hoping it would make my hair more manageable without using the direct heat of a hand-held hair dryer.
The first thing I did was washed and deep conditioned my hair. I used Creme of Nature leave in conditioner to set my hair on the rollers.
This is how my hair turned out after I took out the rollers. It really did not turn out the way I was hoping, but it was decent.
Below is a pic of my hair after I flat ironed it. Unfortunately, I did not take any pics right after I flat ironed it, so the pic below was taken a few hours afterwards. This was taken right before the wedding. I took it down right before I walked in.
Below are pics of the wedding.
Below are pics of how I wore my hair to the E.Y.L Sweet Heart Ball. I took the twists around the front and pinned them to the side. The twists in the back just hung freely.
These pics are of me at my cousin's 50th birthday dinner. I made one big jumbo twist out of all the twists in the back of my hair. I tucked the end of the jumbo twist under, then secured it with hair pins. I made one jumbo twist from all the twists on the left side at the top, then secured it with hair pins as well. I left the right side down in the top.
On another note, my outfit was put together at the last minute! The dress I was going to wear was too revealing, so I had to go with plan B. The top is by Fleurish, the skirt is by Catch My I, the belt is by Betsey Johnson, the shoes are by Impo, and the Earrings are by Unique Ears : )
My girls and I were headed to Huntsville to celebrate our girl Tina's birthday at Rosie's Cantina. So, I had to figure out what I was going to wear and what I was going to do with my twists. This is always a struggle for me because I hate dressing up!
The picture to the left shows my twists before I actually tried to make them look decent for the Girl's Night Out.
What I ended up doing was pulling my twists up into a high side-ways pony tail. I pulled the twists up and over, then I used one of the side twists as a pony tail holder by wrapping it around the other twists and securing it with hair pins. I left about 3-4 twists out at the top, then made one big twist with them down the side of my face. The picture to the right shows the finished look.
After returning home at 3:00 a.m., I still had to make sure my twists were tied down before I went to sleep. I took all of the hair pins out, then I tied my edges down with my scarf. I then used my second head scarf that looks like a sock or bag to tie up my twists. The pictures below should give you a better understanding. Please look over how I was looking. I was soooooo sleepy!
