For some naturals, winter (if not fall) is the season to begin protective styling. Well here are five quick and cute looks to get you started.
1. Milkmaid Twists
For this look, Jess starts with two side ponytails on stretched hair. Then she twists each ponytail and pins them around her crown. That’s it!
2. Double Twisted Bun
This style is an old favorite of mine from Ambrosia. The look is achieved by creating side flat twists into a bun. Check it the tutorial for more details.
3. Side Updo with a Faux Bang
In this video, Nik begins by rolling and pinning up the back. Then she does a few twists in the front to create a swoop bang. All you need are bobby pins for this simple look.
4. Diagonal Flat Twists
LoveMaiCurls starts with stretched hair to achieve this style. She then does diagonal parting followed by two big flat twists that are eventually pinned in the back. Do check out her tutorial!
5. Vintage Pin Up on Medium Twists
For those of you who will be wearing twists (or braids), Helecia demonstrates a really cute updo in the above video. Your twists do not have to be small or long at all. She works with medium-sized short twists.
Ladies, will you be trying any of these protective styles this winter?
