I love styles that look intricate, like they took forever to achieve, but really they're pretty easy to get done. This is one of those styles. It really comes down to six twists pinned up. I waited
The state of your hair - textured or straight - when you begin is really up to you. I go for big, air-dried or stretched hair though because I like the fullness it gives the style. You do want to make sure your hair is well moisturized, as this is a style you can keep in for a few days.
Supplies Needed: Bobby pins, 2 hair clips to hold the sections
- Separate your hair into front & back sections (part from ear to ear), clip to hold in place.
- Divide the back section down the middle and make 2 two-strand twists on each side.
- Secure each twist underneath the other with a bobby pin.
- In the front section, part your hair how you like it (middle or side-part), clip to hold 1 section.
- Divide the other section in half (top to bottom) and two-strand twist twist each.
- Secure each twist in the back with bobby pins.
- Repeat steps 5 & 6 on the other section in the front.
Voila! That's it. On my hair this looked a little more like a faux bob style because of how loosely I twisted my hair in the back sections. If you two-strand twist your hair tighter, you will get more of the detailed look I had with the crochet braid style. I like it both ways. Also, you can switch this style up some by simply using the tuck, roll, pin technique in each section instead of a two-strand twist (pictured below). Happy styling ladies!
