French Plait With A Twist: Natural Hairstyles

by Evenes Ruth Mafupa

french braid with a twistSo in January, when I recorded the 2016 hair update video and the length check one, I also recorded how I styled my hair for that day. And because life keeps happening, I didn’t get to edit the vid until recently. I know. it’s mid March already and the video is really late. I thought, better late¬†very late than never right?

And you guys, at least some of you have been asking me to show you more natural hairstyles and I thought I could contribute my bit although I am not a guru when it comes to hairstyles. I am a simple kinda person. I have my go to styles and really wear them everyday. Even when I was relaxed, I used to part my hair the same way and wear the same style throughout the year until my friend in college thought I had a really nice weave sewn in. I remember when she said,

“When will we get to see your real hair? you’re always weaved up”

And by then, I had never had a weave in my life and I was so shocked that we were hanging together for so long but she didn’t know it was my real hair on my head. I realised it was because I had my part in the same place and wore it down all the time. There probably was no way of telling it was my real hair I suppose. I remember then, after that incident, I tried to wear it pinned up time and again and I used to get people revealing that they thought it was a weave all along… Wow! Was it necessary to tell you this? I guess what I am trying to relay is, unless I make an effort to look different, I usually wear my hair the same way daily so I do not have much hairstyles to share with you guys. The few that I try, I will share but please do bare with me.

French plait with a twist. Natural hair styles-1

This is a simple hairstyle by the way and all you need to know how to do is a French plait and flat twisting. It works on medium to long hair. You can also tweak it up for shorter hair by adding hair extensions. I hope this video helps you in a way because that’s the reason I recorded it and spent time editing it. Until then, blessings to you and yours. *hugs*
