Looking for a flat twist style you can rock?
I did the below style during my transition to natural hair, and I’m still in awe that I was able to pull this off because I had just learned how to flat twist my hair.
Ladies! If you can’t do flat twists, just go on YouTube and search for “flat twist tutorials” and there are tons. That’s how I learned! Trust me, you can do it.
OK, so here’s the video below. Please ignore my cheesy intro song. lol
- Practice! Practice! Practice! You won’t get it the first time or the 2nd, 3rd or 4th. Keep at it and don’t give up.
- Doing this successfully is all about finger placement. Not everyone can hold their fingers in the same way so figure out what is more comfortable for you
- You may have to position your fingers differently on your non-dominant side. For example, I cannot twist the same on my left as I can on my right.
- Tie your hair down at night with a silk scarf so it stays.
- Splurge and get the Meta Grip premium bobby pins from Sallys. This flat twist style requires a lot of them so you want some with a good hold and don’t peel/lose their shape.
