I have been receiving so many compliments about my hair that I had to write a post. For months, I have been experimenting with hairstyles that would fit my lifestyle. I have worn wigs, box braids, quick weaves yet for one reason or another these styles didn’t quite fit the mold. My criteria regarding hairstyles is a little complicated but I’ll share a few of details. First, I am in the military reserves so I need a hairstyle that accommodates the Army regulations regarding my soft cap (no bulky styles, remove the box braids).
Secondly, I actively participate in moderate exercise five days a week (remove the quick weaves). Lastly, I wanted a style that will transition from the workplace to date night without matting up and keeps my edges intact (bye wigs!) I was at my wit’s end until I discovered this style on Pinterest! I immediately contacted Haddy’s African Hair Braiding to schedule my appointment and the rest is history!
I am in love with these mini twists and I’m glad everyone loves them just as much as I do! This hairstyle fits my criteria and is very easy to maintain. Check out a few tips on how to maintain twists here!
