15 Quick and Easy Styles for Small and Mini Twists

• Dec 1, 2013


By Chinwe of Hair and Health

Even though mini twists are probably one of the more versatile natural hairstyles, it is easy to get stuck in styling rut.  If you happen to be one of those who is stuck, check out these tutorials for inspiration:

1. Four Styles for Short to Medium-Length Twists

In the above video, Koku Gonza demonstrates four simple mini twist styles ranging from cute to chic.  These styles can be recreated on short to medium-length twists.

2. Three and a Half Styles for Medium-Length to Long Twists

Honestly Erica (who is hilarious, by the way) shows you how to create three and a half (yes, 3.5) different looks on medium-length to long mini twists. 

3. Two Updos for Shorter Twists

If you are more interested in updos, check out these classy versions by Kim.  They can be recreated on short twists or modified for longer twists. 

4. Two Party Styles for Longer Mini Twists

Now, I cannot talk about mini twist styles without mentioning Naptural85 – one of the mini twist queens.  In the above video, she demonstrates how to create two formal looks on pre-curled mini twists.

5. Curly Protective Style for Shorter Mini Twists

In the above tutorial, ProtectivePrincess shows you how she creates a beautiful protective updo on pre-curled mini twists.  Though the style was done on shorter twists, it can be modified for medium-length or longer twists.

6. Three Protective Styles for Medium-Length to Long Mini Twists

When it comes to styling, PrettyDimples is very creative.  In this video, she demonstrates how to do three gorgeous updos on medium-length to long mini twists.

Ladies, will you try any of these styles on your twists?

I concur with all of the concepts you may have shown to your post. They’re seriously persuasive and might certainly work. Continue to, a posts are far too rapid for novices. Could you please increase them a little bit via next occasion? Many thanks for this posting.

Love mini twists. I’m only very very lazy this year. I’m grazing at the waist and that would take me at least a week to install them.
Oh yeah. Kinkycurlyqueen is awesome with styles and mini twist!!! ( also waist length, I believe)

Video #1 is great! I had been having issues finding styles now that my twists are past the short stage but not quite to the long stage. Thanks, Chinwe 😀

Yo entiendo completamente. Debe hablar con la gente aqui: ellas tambien viven alli en Brazil pero tiene pelo natural. Tienen blogs y videos y mas, no se de donde compran sus productos. Debe preguntarles. Ojala que eso este util!
Un abrazo 🙂

I love them! I started using mini twist in my protective styling! Far more flexible than updos!
