Thought I would drop in to share a new hairstyle for Curly Cutie. I am often on the look-out for things to do with her hair. She has thin, fine natural hair. Styles where her hair is put away such as braids or twists work really well and help keep the hair from tangling like it normally would in a loose state.
Quite a while ago, I ran across a style called Havana twists. I thought they were really cute, and this was before they took the natural hair community by storm. They were much thicker than the average two-strand twists and boasted an invisible attachment method. After seeing the process of how some naturals put these particular twists in I thought it was easy enough to give a try. I also thought it would not be too rough on Curly Cutie’s hair and I’d benefit from not spending hours putting in and taking down braids because they tend to be small on her fine strands.
There are lots of tutorials on how to do these twists. There is even a particular hair I believe that was originally used for these twists. That’s why I’m calling them “Havana style” twists. I did not make CC’s twists as thick as normal Havana twists would be and I used Marley braid hair to achieve the look.
This is a fresh set of twists.
I did brick layer parts on most of the head except for the front. I wanted her to be able to have a part if she wore it down.
I really like these because they do not pull to tightly at the scalp.
I think they were a success. Curly Cutie is pleased and has had fun wearing different styles.
