It feels like it has been a long time since I made a post, life seems to have caught me up a little.
Well how about starting again with one of my favorite looks when it comes to cornrows, and that is the ‘twist-cornrow’ or what others may know it as, ‘flat-twists’. The normal braided cornrow is the ultimate loved hairstyle, however if you want to give the style a slightly more elegant look, the twist cornrow is the way to go.
I just decided to do an up-do where I tucked in the ends of the twists with a few pins, with absolutely no real thought into the pattern, but the twist-cornrow is as versatile as the normal braided cornrow (meaning you can do any style you want). I will venture to do more styles with twist-cornrow so you can have more ideas as to its versatility.
There are a few differences when it comes to twist-cornrow compared to the normal braided cornrow:
1).With a normal cornrow the hair can be quite short, quite fluffy, woolly or thin and it can still last a little while, because of the tightness of the grip in the braid, however it may look thin in its presentation.
2).On the other hand with twist-cornrow the hair can still look nice and full, but may not last as long as a braided cornrow with short, fluffy, woolly or thin hair.
3).Also if the hair is very thick or full, it may not be a good idea to use twist cornrow as it may make the hair look too bulky and out of shape.
TIP: Whether twist-cornrow or braided cornrow, always make sure to wrap the hair for bed as it allows the hair to last longer.
This is a great alternative for the original braided cornrow….go ahead and give it a go if you haven’t already. I’m sure you will fall in love with it as much as I have.
