3LRChallenge: 3 Ways To Wear Your Twists To Work

Figuring out ways to make your look professional when they’re in twists can be hard. Joke and I are sharing with you ways that you can wear your hair to work while in a protective style. These styles can be worn on your own hair or if you have extensions in.

Side Swept Roll Tuck and Pin – I love wearing my hair like in this style, it’s pretty much a variation of how I wore my hair when it was loose for my graduation.

Pull all your hair to one side of your head and secure your twists with a hair comb.
Roll twists starting from the front and working all the way to the back of your head. Use bobby pins to hold twists where needed.

The Bun – Loose state or protective style, the bun has always been a go to style for me. The donut is a lifesaver when it comes to buns. I made my donut by cutting off both ends of tights and rolling them on themselves; but they sell donuts for really cheap at pretty much any drugstore – Walgreens, CVS, Walmart. You can make yout own donut with tights, leggings or socks if you don’t want to buy one.

Double Twisted Fold – I think I came across a variation of this style from one of my random times on YouTube. I’ve had this clip for over 5 years and I’d used it only once way back when I had a lot less hair. I was stuck with what to do with my hair one day and a combination of fooling around and some regressed memory birthed this.
