Short Kinky Twist

Short kinky twists are a protective glam style and is for the glam and the calm. Afro twist hairstyles are versatile for any personality and can be a great look for both the pool and a professional setting.

This style is for the new and upcoming naturalistas. It can be worn long, and it can be worn short in a bob-like style as well. Kinky hairstyles are very low maintenance and a shake-and-go kind of style. You can take off your bonnet or scarf, shake and style it into place with your hands, and go about your day!

Cover the hair with a bonnet because the hair used for this style can grow easily, allowing it to look messy fast without proper care. Keep your scalp moisturized and have some gel to patch up those baby hairs for flawless kinky hair styles.

With the volume that the kinks already have, arranging them into a bob may be strategic to get a full-bodied look for your curls. Prop them to one side and let the bounce do its magic!

This kinky twist hairstyle is actually a wig constructed with an Afro kinky hair extension. This unit is usually worn by women who cannot sit for long hours to make this hairstyle, or for women dealing with alopecia.

What’s your best advice?

Because this twisted hairstyle is a wig, it requires little to no maintenance. All that needs to be done is to keep the unit away from dust, i.e., store it appropriately. There’s also no need for oiling or restyling. Just pop it on and voila! You’re glam-ready.

How would you describe this?

This is a simple and natural braided to the side with a kinky twist style. It’s simple because the braids speak for themselves, but how it’s braided in gives it style and good technique pattern. It’s natural because this model’s hair looks like there is no hair added.

What’s your best advice?

Kinky twist braids are a very easy braided style with less maintenance. Oil your scalp, mousse the braids, kinky twist when they get frizzy, and protect with a bonnet while sleeping. It’s a get-up-and-go style like most braids with a very natural twist.

How would you describe this?

This natural kinky twist hairstyle is an on-the-go look. This is a unique hairstyle with curls. This twisted hairstyle is for all types of hair and texture.

There are several different ways you can wear it. Pin-up for office attire or hanging down depending on the occasion. This kinky hair style is unique, creative, protective, and lightweight on the scalp.

What’s your best advice?

Enjoy the versatile ways of wearing kinky twists styles. Avoid tangling – breakage women should shampoo and condition along with a deep treatment by simply using their fingertips to wash and massage the scalp while wearing it.

Maintenance is also minimal. After rinsing out, use a hairdryer or let hair air dry until the hair is damp. Then, apply any natural hair oil mixed with water in a spray bottle to the scalp to lock in moisture. You can use coconut oil, argan biotin oil, rose oil, castor oil, etc.

How would you describe this?

This style is called passion twist. This style gives off a natural twist and a messy look that many women have been going for lately. They are fun and very lightweight.

What’s your best advice?

Passion twists aren’t for everybody. All women have different hair textures, and due to this being crotchet hair, it can either stick out or slip out. It’s important to ask your stylist about textures. Ask for a 12 pack of Water Wave Freetress hair, as it will take fairly 4 hours to do.
