Fly Natural Hair Daily: Cute Curly Cut

For all my curly sisters, this is an excellent way to put some sass back into your style. On top the curls are left long and defined. The sides are faded and tapered. This style could be adapted to kinky hair too with a twist-out or coil-out on top and the sides faded. This short style is classy and super low maintenance. Are you afraid of a cut? Would you rock this style?

Quick Hair “Recovery” Style: Puffy Twists Pinned Back

Boy, oh boy, am I a busy woman! I was rocking an afro puff for an entire week!. I love my puff but it was time for it to go. However, I still don’t have time right now to wash and detangle my hair and all that rigmarole…I know this weekend I want to do a twistout. So, in preparation, I decided to restore life to my hair by doing puffy twists pinned back. Here’s a few tips on how I restored moisture and set the style.

1. First off, my hair was pretty dried out, so the first step was to preform surgery and add in moisture. Starting in the back, I parted a small section of hair for a medium-size twist. I got out my spray bottle with water and spray each section as I went along. Then, I smoothed out each section with peppermint oil and Shea Moisture Smoothie and proceeded to twist.

2. The twists turned out poofy because the addition of water swells the hair. I always say, just go with flow with natural hair and let it do what it wants to do. I also did not want to make the parts very neat because doing so in my hair’s fragile state would mean more detanlging time and possible breakage. So, I very gently finger-parted the hair.

Before: Hanging out at the Sox game
with the fam and “the puff”

3. I achieved the look you see by basically flat-twisting to the back each row of twist and pinning the hair down with a bobby pin. I did the same in the back by twisting upward. Once the hair was all gathered at the top, I simply twisted the hair down and pinned and tucked it underneath the other twists.

This is just a quick style you can do if you don’t what take down your twists right away, or are preparing for a wash. It also works nice if you have twists that aren’t very long. You can have even more fun with this style by making the parts neater and playing around with defining the puffs.
