I attempted my first set of flat-twists yesterday!!

And it didn't turn out totally jacked!! LOL!

I tend to avoid ANYTHING that has my arms up at an angle for an extended period of time. Especially after doing light-weight training. That just makes my arms burn even MORE, but I was tempted last night while watching "Gossip Girl". I don't normally watch it, but since "24"is no longer on the air *tear*, I had to supplement my mindless television fix.

Anyway, I kept them kinda fat since that would require less time and just kept going, no matter HOW they looked. BUT..... they surprisingly didn't suck! Wohoo!

Last night, I ended up sorta bunning the back and covering with a satin scarf, and this how is it came out. I'm actually pretty proud of myself! :)

Again I ask....who says natural hair isn't versatile!? :P

They did come out cute. I never wear my hair with the flat twists in, I take them out in the a.m.

Thank you!! I really was proud of myself! I may keep them in for another day, and retwist in the evening.

o.m.g.----the flat twist bun COULD NOT be cuter! love it! way to rock it!

KP said...

You wanna know what's funny, naturalhairselection? The cute factor was on accident. I sleep more on one side, so it ended up being more of a side-swirling bun that JUST HAPPENED to look alright! LOL!

Sorry if I'm a bit late, but I saw your picture on Naturally Obsessed, in the Hair Diary Section, and I was hooked! Did you do it on wet or dry hair?

KP said...

Thanks to everyone for the comments!

@asimplething, I did them on lightly blown-out hair. I haven't tried it on damp/wet hair just yet.
