Back to School Twist Out
Today was Syd's first day of middle school! She liked her last twist out so much that she decided she wanted another one for the all-important first day hairstyle.
I decided to give her a simple braided headband in addition to the twist out. I made it very basic, with a part in the middle of her head and one cornrow down each side of her face toward her ear. The back of the hair was put into three strand twists. I used Oyin Handmade Burnt Sugar Pomade for both the cornrows and the twists.
She wore her hair in the twists all day Sunday. The twists were removed Monday morning, but the cornrows along the edges were left in.
The result was a gorgeous twist out, a protected hairline, and one happy middle schooler!
