Twist and pin curl Tutorial

I have been getting tons of enquiries about the above hairstyle. I am happy that the style is a hit. *Grinning widely* The style was inspired by Saleemah of Hydratherma Naturals. I saw it and modified it a bit. Check out the Hydratherma link to see the YouTube tutorial on how to do the hairstyle.

Saleemah's twist and pin curl
I have also styled some ladies' hair with this hairstyle.

Yes I styled these ladies hair! :)

How I accomplished my style

1) Cornrow the font and back of my hair. Decide how high you want the style to look and cornrow accordingly. Twist the ends of the cornrows.
2) Twist the rest of your hair.
3) Put your ends in bantu knots / china bumps / robo-robo / periwinkle.People call this different things.
4) Close the gaps by pinning sections together or by sewing them together.

NOTE: If you feel your hair is not thick enough to cover the gaps properly like Saleemah's hair (above), consider adding extensions for bulk and not length.

I went to a salon in Lagos Nigeria called 1st May. This Salon is in Ogudu GRA - Ojota. The hairdresser's name is Kate (0808-661-7756).

That's it! Please try it out and let me know how it turned out - even better if you send pictures *wink*.

Keep it natural!
