Angled Pig Tails With Three Strand Twists

Here is yet another experimental style which is quick to the point and easily changeable into a nice up-do style.  As you can see i simply parted her hair at an angle creating the "angled" aspect of the pig tail style i had in mind.  Then i pony tailed the pig tails off with some heart ballies...


I was bound and determined to try some three strand twists versus the normal braids or finger curls. I already knew that nothing under the sun would allow these to stay without some type of manipulation or intervention.  My immediate thought was to put a rubber band mid way through the twist and hold enough tension throughout so that they would hopefully stay twisted. 


As you can see the twists stayed in place to the best of their ability which was better than usual.  It was really hard to keep any tension because even though the twists were tighter in nature they immediately tried to unravel beyond the rubber band in the middle and at the end.  BUT through all that i was still happy that the three strand twists LOOKED like they were supposed to even though they were fuller in nature than what someone may usually see on coarser type hair.


This side of her pig tails was really being stubborn, which this illustrates the big differences between the left and right side of her curls.  This side was "resisting" the three strand twist, but still stayed as pictured until i styled it.


So i decided that i would rather have these styled into some type of neat up-do for some variance.  I didn't do anything fancy per say i just simply gathered both twists and crossed them over each other like an X and twisted the "tails" of the twists together and clipped her Toodee bow right in the center.


This style took all of 20 minutes to do and it stayed in place all day achieving many compliments and with no pre-planned up-do in mind i thought this turned out rather cute!!!!




Simple quick cute and girly! <3 IT
