Remember this look from my previous post?

Hi loves, I hope you are all doing great.? 

I created a tutorial video on instagram for the hairstyle in the picture above, I also decided to do pictorial and share it here as well. Although it turned out looking a little different, the pictorial shows detailed steps on how to achieve the style on the above picture.

It’s really quite easy.. Scroll down for detailed talk through.

Step 1 –  Section out a portion of twists from the left and right sides at the front.

Step 5 – Tuck the twists at the right into the left part of the elastic band and tuck the twists at the left to the right part of the elastic band (it’s basically just crisscrossing and tucking in the opposite direction)
