That is cute. And that's a nice example with you doing it with your twists.Here's a simple double twist pin-up style I did:View attachment 439817
It actually looked different the first time I did it, but I made a slight mistake this time. I need to look at the reference pic for the style again...
Here's the style I was trying to do, if anyone's interested:
Maybe you are making them too big? I know that if I do only a couple big braids or twists on my hair they tend to unravel as they dry. If I do at least 6 twists on my head they usually will stay twisted ok.Some of my three strand twists unravel. I have done a little research and it seems that some people use bobbypins to secure the ends until their hair dries. Does anyone do this? Can you upload a picture? I am mot understanding what I am doing wrong.
Thanks in advance.

I am using shea butter and Aunt Jackie's No Shrink Gel on damp hair.You may not be doing anything wrong. Everyone has different hair.
What product(s) are you using to twist with? Is your hair in it's natural state or are you twisting on stretched hair? Do you twirl the ends of your twist around your fingers?
Instead of bobby pins you can try putting your twist on small perm rods if you have them.
Looks like silk, black strands! Look at the health and shine of this gorgeous hair!!!!I straightened my hair for the first weekend of 2019. Finally had the confidence to get my hair back to one length once and for all and I think I got rid of all of my unnatural layers. Back to BSL and I feel basically ******** So as soon as my hair is curly, I’m hitting the growth challenges with a vengeance. I want WL Dec 2019!!! And this is my first protective style of the year... cause I’m trying to get my straight-ish hair to last through a few weekends.
This is 5 flat twists at a slant going back. I will be keeping these in til Saturday and hopefully rocking some nice beachy waves when I take them out.
Thank you . Yes, it’s a puff cuff. I really like it since it’s not tight on my head at all. Makes styling so much easier.Wowww-ie! That sure is a pretty updo! Is that a “puff cuff” you are using? I’m in love with this look! It looks so elegant especially paired with the earrings. Work it girl!!
