For whatever reason, I commonly associate har braids and twists with warmer weather. I really don’t know why this is, and it’s not that I don’t wear braids and twists in my hair when the weather turns cold, but I feel as though braids and summer go hand in hand.
Anyways, I thought I would explain how I create my own twisted crown hairstyle for anyone else who affiliated braids and twists with warm weather.
Begin by sectioning off a small section of hair on either side of your face, beginning at the root and ending about one inch above your temple. The section of hair itself shouldn’t be much bigger than an inch or so around. Divide the section of hair into two equal pieces, and begin to twist the two pieces around each other, creating a rope-like twist. Be sure to twist under rather than over. Do this until you’ve reached the ends of the sections of hair, and pin the end off with a bobby pin. Repeat this process on the opposite side of the face with the other piece of hair you sectioned off, and tie back with a small elastic at the back of your head.
I realize this photo is rather poor in terms of quality, but this is what the final result looks like. I slept with my hair in a braid while it was still slightly wet to create a no-heat-required wave look, but feel free to curl or straighten the loose hair.
I really enjoy wearing my hair like this in the summer because it keeps my baby hairs out of my face, and further because it’s both casual and formal. If you’re wearing this style to a wedding, consider weaving some flowers into the twists to make it super unique.
