Let’s face it not all of us are great hairstylists. I was blessed to have a mother who was a brilliant and creative stylists who adorned me with braids, twists, cornrows and the like. She shared her talents with me and I became responsible for the care of my younger sister and cousin’s hair, hence why it was easy for me to go natural. But my mother was self taught out of necessity as my Granny knew nothing of hair styling. I have learned that many newly naturals are in the same boat having no clue what to do when it comes to hair.
The easiest method of styling is twists because at the most basic only requires two strands and the method of wrapping is simple. But while learning to twist, many naturals often look in the mirror and are dismayed by the “Celie” syndrome. aaaaahhhhhh!
Well I am here to share the good news: Even ugly twists make a cute twist-out! Yep, you
heard read that correctly. Some of my cutest twist-out styles have come from despicable looking twists.
So be encouraged and continue to practice, because practice truly makes perfect especially when it comes to natural hair styling.
