Having natural hair means we can twist, braid, straighten, and embrace the coils that grow from our scalps, and that diversity is pretty magical. And since we're on the topic of what our curls can do, let's talk about a style that seems to be everywhere these days: Twists.
Twists are a favorite among naturals everywhere. I would imagine the love of twists comes from the ability to wear them short, with or without extensions, and in intricate updos. The styling possibilities are endless, and based on the exact twist style you choose, they can last for around six weeks.
Mini twists are one of our favorite ways to wear the twist style, because they last for up to two months (since they are easy to cleanse without disrupting the hard work that went into styling them). Here's what maintenance is like for this style: Be kind to your edges, get rid of build-up, and don't forget a wrap your hair with a silk scarf at night. Other than that, just enjoy this gorgeous, relatively low-maintenance style. Ahead, find 25 examples of twisted styles you can recreate at home or use as a reference for your stylist.
