A cute and very simple style I rocked today.
The night before, I did about 30 two-strand twisted bantu knots all over my head. I simply took sections, two-strand twisted them, and wrapped them into bantu knots. I had parted a section in the front for the bangs. I took vertical rectangular sections and flat-twisted downward, twisted my hair all the way down, then wrapped the twists in bantu knots.
The next morning, I unwrapped and unraveled the twisted bantu knots (not the ones for the bangs yet.)
I began to gather the coils, wetting my hands and smoothing the coils against my head so that I could create an updo. I did not touch the ends of the coils, just the part that would be against my head. I used some aloe vera gel to smooth the hair and put my hair into an updo. You can see that the hair against my head is smooth, while the hair in the coily puff is still defined.
I took out the bantu knots and flat twists in the front, smoothed them out, and pinned them to the side for sideswept curly bangs.
I separated the coils from the bantu knots a little bit to fluff them out.
Because I had a part from the bangs, I covered it up with the flower headband I won from Shades Of Us!
