Hairstyles: Flat Twisted Twists Up-Do

This hairstyle was inspired by Mahogany Bella from MahoganyKnots that she wore in a recent vid of their's. I put my twist, pun intended, on it and wore this style to a dinner/meeting at Chef Yu (on 36th and 8th in Manhattan- good food and they have a slew of delish $4 drinks during Happy Hour!) with my fellow EXUDE magazine (our premiere issue comes out next month!) editors.

How I Created It

It appeared that her bang was the result of either a twist out, bantu knot out, or maybe even a flexi rod set. I couldn't see the back of her head much but when she turned to the side at different points in the vid, it looked like she flat twisted the back maybe; you could also just pin it up.

I did this style on (a couple of days) old hair that had been stretched (via braiding it nightly). I two-strand twisted my hair into medium sized twists using my homemade shea aloe cream. I made the twists on the front right side smaller for a bang. I was going to take the twists out but decided against it and just left them in. From there, I gathered the back of my hair/twists into three flat twists. They're not that great but I'll keep practicing. Lol. I then added a hair flower that I made to top off the look. :D
