It is a common misconception that TWAs (Teeny Weeny Afros) are boring. Just because your natural hair is a short and cute TWA does not mean you are confined to one boring style while waiting for your hair to grow.
Here are 4 ways you can rock and spruce up your TWA
Do A Lupita
Simple go bare – with your hair, that is. Lupita’s signature hair is her short and bare TWA – no styling, no flowers, no hair accessories.
Add a mid-part, side-part or just go bare. It’s your hair.
Stop this look from looking bland with bright makeup, jewel-toned clothes and bold jewellery.
Let Your Fingers Do The Coiling
Fingers are so easy and quick to do when your natural hair is in the TWA stage. You can
wear the finger coils as a style on its own or let it set overnight and separate the next day
for a cute finger-coil-out hairstyle.
All you need to create this style is some aloe vera gel (alcohol-free, of course), some shea butter and your fingers, naturally.
Add Some Pizazz With A Bold Colour
Whether you decide to go Marilyn blonde, pastel pink and feisty red, bold colours on TWA always look really fun.
Just because you are now natural does not mean you cannot have fun with colour on your hair. Be sure to take extra care of your hair with regular hot oil treatments and deep conditioning sessions.
Have fun with accessories and head gears from hats to scarves, headbands, beanie hats, hair clips, hair combs or even hair flowers.
