I am currently sporting my Teeny Weeny Afro, and initially I had sought to find different hairstyles to put it in before I wacked it in cornrows. Excitedly, I went to YouTube hoping to get ideas on what I could do with my Afro, and although I did find lots of great, short Afro tutorials, I didn’t have much luck in finding a style that I could actually do to my natural hair. I blame this on the fact that my hair at the moment is just not thick enough so simple styles like flat twists, scraping your afro at the front so it creates an Afro puff at the back- just look reDUNKulous on me.
So in exasperation, I went back to Lady Reliable- the good ol’ turban, and this is how I will rock my TWA until I get my hair cornrowed next week.
In reaching my below look, I took my turban inspiration from this image-
I love this canary yellow and multi-coloured butterfly print material and it was supposed to be a gift for a friend but I couldn’t bear to be parted from it!
I’d love to hear how my TWA ladies are dealing with their hair. What kind of styles works best for you? Who and what do you turn to for inspiration for different styles?
