How did you get your hair to do that in the top right picture?

Top right? Are you talking about the pics I posted in this thread (not the link)? It's just one and the same hairstyle seen from different angles so if you mean that do, not sure why you singled out the top right? (Forgive me for being slow)

Are you asking how I did the whole do?

Well that particular angle caught my attention because i can see your hair is rolled up some kind of way. And yes i am talking about the pics in this thread.

Gotcha! I just separated the twists in an angle to create the angular "part" you see in bottom right, then started to twist them the way you'd do a flat twist. When I got to the back, I used a claw clip to hold the hair in place while I twisted the other side. Then I combined both ends and twisted then tucked them somehow then used bobby pins to hold it in place. The finish wasn't that tidy but it worked.

Another way to think of it is I twisted the way one twists hair when making a French roll...only I did it horizontally instead of vertically.

Thanks for this thread. I have been trying to figure out what to do with my twist when they start to get fuzzy. These updos looks really good.

These are a couple of old favorites. I've been too lazy lately to do more styles w/my twists. The flat twists are the front to the bun w/the flower in it. The other style is med.sized twist pinned up into an updo w/cowrie shells.

This was my first attempt at twisting:



I just recently started twisting singles regularly. I had no idea that they were so simple to do!
I just twist one side towards my face like bangs and let them hang down.

Yeah. The back was the trickiest part, but I used to put my hair in braids all the time in high school when I was relaxed and my new growth would get out of hand, so I've had lots of practice.

This was a few years ago. Nothing special, but I look back and think of how I was just getting the hang of my natural hair but I had already made up my mind and relaxed shortly after this pic was taken.

How did you do those flat twists in that direction? I can only seem to do them straight back.

I had to do them very slowly so I could get the hang of the hand movements I needed to do. It was a pain and they are not as neat as the ones going back.
