Hairstyle: Twist Updo with Headband

This is my hair after I finished twisting it and right before I pinned it up. It's growing:-)

I mentioned in a previous post that I was getting tired of wearing twist-outs. I adore how they look and how they turn out but, I was just getting a bit bored. I had planned on trying a new hairstyle. However, I went to my trusty twist updo.

I put the twists in on Sunday on dry hair. I was experiencing a lazy day and did not do my usual routine of washing my hair. I still like how my twist updo turned out. And I have noticed that my hair has grown some. When I first did the twist updo HERE, my twists were shorter. Now they hang a little bit below my eyebrows.

The steps are still similar:
1. Twist hair on dry hair using a gel. I used Jamaican Mango and Lime Locking Gel.
2. Start to bobby pin the hair throughout the head by picking up different sections.
3. Add a cute accessory if you want to jazz it up a bit.


  1. Its funny I was gonna say that it was growing also.. It looks really nice.

  2. This is beautiful. I love your hairstyles. :)
