Well my Up-do style on Curlformers-stretched hair barely lasted one day. I knew this would be the case as the style was just too loose for my short hair, but I was in a hurry for work. No big deal. I just did a swirly part down the middle, grabbed some coconut oil and created… Continue reading Jumbo Flat Twists on Stretched Natural Hair
This was meant to be two jumbo flat twists, but my hair wasn’t properly stretched and therefore I couldn’t ‘catch’ it very well. So I grabbed my rat tail comb and started to make swirly partings. I don’t like plating my hair straight down as it doesn’t suit my long face. Swirly larger partings add… Continue reading Casual Weekend Jumbo Twists
My hair is still in finger coils but i just changed the style. Up-dos into French Rolls are quite tricky to do on short hair like mine andI find it much easier to create styles with smaller sections of hair, which is why I created this classic without too much effort.
Everyone should have a signature hairstyle and as you know, mine is the flat-twist up-do. I always think about leaving the middle ‘out’ and curly but I hate doing my hair daily, so instead I just tuck my hair away. In these pics you can see close-ups of my hair texture, which I class as… Continue reading Week 32 – Signature flat-twist up-do
I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had much time to spend on my hair, so I’ve fallen back on my go-to style, the jumbo twists. You know the deal, see Weeks 24 and 25 🙂

They’re simple, elegant and can last for up to two weeks. I love the challenge and… Continue reading Week 25 Style – Jumbo Flat Twists
As I didn’t have the energy to spend over three hours flat twisting my hair, I settled on two jumbo flat twists. At the front of my head I added a flat-twist pompadour for extra volume and texture. I love this style as it’s quick and easy to create and should last good 5 days.… Continue reading Week 24 Style – Jumbo Flat Twists
My frow-hawk from Curlvolution was looking a bit dry so I turned it into this style. I’m giving my hair a break from small flat twists but two large ones shouldn’t hurt 🙂 This style should hold for a couple of days.
I washed my hair too late ion Sunday night so went to my go-to quickie style. It’s like my Week 13 Style but with a bigger gap in the middle. I like this style because I can do it in three hours flat which is good when I’m short of time. My aim was to… Continue reading Week 17 Style – Flat twists into jumbo flat twists
