Twist and Shout!!!!

Fall is the perfect time to rock a twist out! It’s not too cold and it’s not too dry. It’s also not hot and humid. AT LEAST not Fall on the East Coast (lol). During the Fall, a twist out can really maintain its definition throughout the day, especially with the right products.

Check out some hot twist outs below !!

Now, I cannot discuss fab twist outs without showcasing the lovely Cynthia, aka Addicted2Etsy.

Here she describes step by step how she achieves her adored twist outs.



I have yet to master the twist out, check out my attempts below.



This twist out was done on blow-dried hair. I blow-dried my hair the night before, then twisted AND braided it with Ade Vegan Hair Vanilla Bean Cocoa Shealoe Husky Hair Butter (that was a mouthful,lol).



This (the last two pictures) was the result of me taking out my two-week old mini twists. It’s not a real attempt.These mini twist were done on damp hair. I prefer to do bigger twists on blow-dried hair in order to avoid the almighty shrinkage.

Look at these funny memes I found on Instagram regarding natural girls and their twist outs.

This twist out “attempt” is from 2010. I posted this picture on my Facebook back then with the caption “Sideshow Bob“. I really thought I looked like him on this day and 3 yrs later, I still do!…lol
