You Got Me Twisted - HOTD

I say HOTD, but it's more like my HOTW; hair of the week.

Since I'm not long-term protective styling with wigs, my aim is to keep each style for a week without redoing it, so as to limit manipulation. Last week I did a simple single cornrow of my entire head, and accessorized with head bands. I was pleased that it lasted throughout sleep, work-outs, and everything in between. So this week I decided to try again, but with something different to break up the monotony.

This week's style is an up-do of sorts.

How to:

  1. make 2 sections on either side of your head
  2. twist (or braid) the ponytails, then cross twisted ponytails to the opposite section
  3. secure with bobby pins
  4. fluff to your liking
  5. enjoy
It's super simple and it only took me a few minutes to achieve this look.

p.s. This HOTW is inspired by a style I saw done by mahoganycurls. 

What's your style of choice today or this week?

    1. Thanks Yvonne! I bet it would work well with some kanekalon (very cheap hair).
