10 of the Most Gorgeous and Creative Chunky Twist Styles

Avatar • Jun 10, 2014

So, I have developed a “chunky twists” obsession that began a couple months ago. If you know me, you know I usually live in twists, but they are typically small or medium and rarely ever chunky. Now, back to a couple months ago; I don’t know how, but the chunky twist bug bit me, so I went searching for some style inspiration online. There were so many gorgeous and creative looks that I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you all:

1. Top Knot Bun with a Twist

Top Bun with a Twist on Natural Hair

This model is Jessica (whom you can find on Instagram @jessohno_shedid), and her twisted top knot is super cute! Here are instructions for the style found on DIY Natural Hair Care:

1. Secure your hair to the top of your head with a ponytail holder.
2. Twist the ends of your ponytail into chunky twists.
3. Pull the hair forward and tuck them under to the front.
4. Secure your hair with pins.
5. Add gel to the edges and brush lightly.

2. Chunky Flat Twist Updo with Side Pompadour

This model is Toni from Mynaturalsistas, and she never ceases to amaze me with her beautiful styles. Check out the Mynaturalsistas channel she shares with her sisters.

3. Side Flat Twists into Side Braid

We first featured this look in our natural hairstyles section, and I just had to include it again with these additional angles. The model is Nik from LHDC-TV.

Oh the possibilities when you have thick hair! The only way I can get a chunky twist is if I do no more than two! lol

The hairstyles look stunning — but too complicated for me personally and with the exception on #3 and #7, too much stress on my edges.

Chunky twists are the real deal. I am flattered by all of these versatile styles. There’s so many things you can do to your hair and wear it how you want. Hair can be art and this emphasizes creativity. I like how befitting it is and it fits their face shape. These are some really interesting posts and it’s good for locking in moisture or combat shrinkage. Hey I’m learning!
