Three Strand Twist's/Half Cornrow's With Heart Beads

This is a Curlee switch up from the previous style i shared that lasted 8 days. I decided to change up the three sectioned pony tails that i had on the top half of Diva R's hair. Instead of the finger curls that she wore previously. I did three strand twists , twisting the 3 strand together going to the left because i found that one thing i was having trouble with was that i wasn't thinking about twisting with her curl pattern i was just twisting in what ever direction came to mind and that is what contributed to the twists unraveling very quickly. YAY i love learning new things!


No matter how tight i do the twists or how loose i do them they always end up unwinding slightly looking puffy yet cute :)

As you can see the beads were turned into black and white heart beads as mentioned in the last post  :)

Below is a close up of one of her 3 strand twists and i am beyond surprised how long they lasted! NO twist has ever stayed in Diva R's hair longer than an hour. these lasted for several hours! YAY its a start.


I used the Bee Mine Curly Butter to create the twists and finger twirl the ends.

Below is another side view of her twists :)

I am definitely happy with the results and will try these more often in different ways in the future. Twists have always been easy for me to do but they just never stay in fine hair.
