Styled By Mar: Red & Black Yarn Twists

I may hate doing my own hair sometimes but i love learning and exploring different styles on family and friends if they let me๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š!!

After seeing my latest yarn twists style,My dear friend Annette asked me to do her first set of yarn twists and it turned out soo beautiful!! Take a look at the photos below…

Here is a even close look ….

CUTE right?? I just loved this look on her and she has such fine textured hair so it was a little different on the grip but it still turned our great and secure!! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ http://www.mrselegantlynatural.com

image

Finally getting to cuttingโœ‚โœ‚ my yarn for my hair๐Ÿ’, going to get it started tonight since my schedule is pretty clear this week… I’m going for the yarn wraps/locs for my first time so wish me luck because that’s double the work of the regular yarn twists which is my favorite ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ฑ lol

*This length cut in half will be about 18-20 inches, I was gonna go shorter but maybe for my next set!

Items used for this process:
-large scissors
-yarn
-2 foldable chairs
-yellow measuring tape

I’m super excited to try something new and put my hair in a protective style for awhile especially during the summer and being so active, these are going to be perfect!

My first attempt at a flat twist protective style on my daughters hair!

Fall is here and it is time to do protective styles and lots and lots of deep conditioning! On that note, i been practicing many different styles most on my daughter Aaliyah’s hair she is 10 yrs old especially flat twists and guest what?…. i finally SUCCEEDED ! I tried forever to do this and i got it now (on somebodyย elseย hair that is), i still have to try again on my hair. take a look below at some pics of my daughter hair and tell me what you think!

STARTED OFF SMALL FLAT TWISTS IN THE FRONT ON , THEY WE’RE PERFCTO! I DID THIS ON FRESHLY WASHED, BLOWN OUT HAIR (using tension method). I MOISTURIZED WITH MY SHEA BUTTER MIX (coconut oil,castor oil, and shea butter) and Shea Moisture’s Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie. LOOK AT THAT SHINE!
