PRETTY PLAITS

Be the center of attention with this gorgeous updo silhouette that features intricate twists that are just as unique as you are.

Get the look: Start by parting hair in a zig-zag pattern and twist hair on the sides and end the twists at the nape. Take the remaining hair and fashion twisted strands into a Mohawk-inspired profile. Secure the style with bobby pins. To finish, spray coif with flexible holding spray to the coils in place.

LOC & CURL

This is mane is stunning with wavy locs that cascade over the shoulder. The blonde highlights gives this style an extra oomph for a fabulous mane statement.

Get the look: Divide locs into small sections and twist locs into Bantu Knots using shea butter as a moisturizer. For defined coils, let the Bantu Knots set overnight and removed them in the morning. The result: a beautiful body of curls that are pure perfection on lengthy locs.

CURLY COIF

Showcase your Natural curls with a voluminous mane. The twisted tendrils at the crown make for a standout style that’s ultra chic.

Get the look:  Apply a moisturizing cream to damp tresses and roll small sections of hair with perm rods, leaving out the front section of hair. Twist the remaining strands into coils, securing the hair with bobby pins. Use oil sheen to achieve maximum shine.

    Thanks I appreciate your having this post online. I’m looking for hairstyle ideas because I’m going through menopause. Oil doesn’t stay in my scalp as well. So I really enjoy this site.
