Twist’Falls

 

Going out, need it quick, no time for cornrows or braids, but you want it unique and with some class.  Well here’s a style for you.

With a cascade of large twists falling to the side of the hair like a waterfall, its no wonder how it got its name.

Whether it lasts for more than a day depends on hair texture, thickness and length, and how well the child can keep it during the nights with a head wrap on.  My daughter is very responsible so she makes sure her head wrap stays on during the night.  Don’t ask me how, she’s not the greatest sleeper…hahaha!

Doing this style is as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4.  Once you have decided you know which side of the head you want the style to fall;

  1.  part the hair initially with the tail of the comb to get the outline, then using the other-side of the comb, neaten your partitions.  The neater the better it will look, then loosely band each bunch.
  2. Using a strong hair band, properly secure it to the base of each bunch.
  3. Do large twists on the end of each bunch.
  4. Pin into place…..and…….

Tadaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!! hairstyle complete, so simple.  I do not use any gel or sprays, just head wraps, but you’re more than welcome to and it may even help keep it in longer.

In all honesty, I banded the hair too tight and by the end of the day, my daughter was complaining and then took it out….lesson learned and a tip for you.  Make sure when your banding, that its secure enough, but don’t make it too tight, otherwise your child may complain and take it out like mine did..lol!  And it looked so good on her too, well! next time ey?

Enjoy your day out, i’m sure there’ll be smiles all around.

FlowerPuffs

This beautiful flowerpuff hairstyle is a perfect spring summer look. And it is ever so simple to achieve.

I wanted to do something really different, and poofy came to mind.  So in case you’re also feeling like it’s time for a little change, here’s how to re-create this summer poof.

First divided the hair at the front of the head from the the hair at the back of the head.  Making sure to part where you want the puffs to begin and loosely band.  Now part some hair on the sides of the head, and loosely band, don’t forget to loosely band the back too.

I divided the front section into five parts.  You can make it more or less, depending on how thick the child’s hair is or how you want it to look.  Use a strong band to band the base of each section at the front.  I keep it all natural, so apart from a shear-butter  mix that I make for the hair, I do not use any gel for extra hold, but you are more than welcome to do so.

Divide only the top section of the front in two, then twist each one.  Then twist the rest of the other sections at the front.  Now use a strong band for the side sections then twist like the top.  Take one of the twists from the top section and using the same twisting formation, join it to the other sections on the same side, continuing to the side section too.  Now repeat on the other side using the other twist from the top section. then join together at the very back with another band and twist.  This will now create a twisted band around the puffs.

To create the puff look at the back, divide the hair into as many sections as you want, keeping each section as full as possible, and do a very loose twist on each section, the looser the better.  Now fold and pin each twist in place, including the twist at the very back, making sure you’re happy with each placement.  Finish with a flower of your choice at the front and…VOILA!

Style accomplished, very simple, and perfect for the sunny days.

Give it a go and bring some sunshine into your child’s hair.
