Hair Of The Week




Down for a super long style you might not have tried before? I challenge you try these stitch braids with Senegalese twists. They’re surprisingly easy to create and are insanely gorgeous.


To recreate these twists, start at the nape of your neck and work with 1-inch sections at a time. Divide each section into two equal parts and begin twisting them, feeding in extensions for extra length as you go, until you reach your ends. Repeat this process, working from the nape of your neck upward toward your crown, until the back half of your head is in Senegalese twists. Stop once you reach the crown of your head and the back of your ears (showcased at the 55 second mark).

Then, cornrow your hair with a V-shaped part at the center, transitioning the three-strand braid into a two-strand twist once you reach the crown of your head. Repeat the process so that you have a total of five braided sections going all around your head, from one ear to the other. Next, take those last five twists you just made, and bring them up into a bun, wrapping them around the base, and securing with pins if needed.
