This style was inspired by little Kaela of Baby Bella Hair. Thanks to her mom Tracey for allowing me to mimick this hairstyle!
As you all know, I'm in college now and for the first few weeks of getting oriented I wanted to do something very low-maintenance for my hair. This inspired style came in great time!
- Two-strand twisting
The first thing I did was part the front section of my hair that I wanted to use for the cornrows. I clipped that out of the way. Then I used very small sections of hair and made two-strand twists. This took me roughly 5 hours to do on my medium-length hair.
After the two-strand twisting was done, I made some cornrows in the front of my hair. I began twisting about a quarter of an inch after the cornrow (after running out of hair to "attach" to the scalp.)
Here is how I will preserve my mini twists every night:
- I will use a ponytail holder and make a low pony.
- Then I will band the pony.
I'll tuck the banded pony under, securing it with a clip. That way the hair isn't flipping up (unless you want it to of course, then you can clip it above.)
Finally I will of course cover my twists at night with a satin scarf.
