Rock Your TWA!

Are you a new natural or still in the TWA phase on transitioning and growing your hair back?  I know, I know!  It’s definitely a challenging length of hair to work with when you’re looking for something easy to do with low manipulation.  I’ve found a few ways to wear my TWA that I absolutely LOVE–despite my unnecessary discomfort with such short hair.

Defined Curls or a Wash n’ Go are two fairly easy, low to no manipulation hairstyles.  I have worn mine for up to 4 weeks, but would only recommend 2 – 3 weeks for detangling’s sake…  My first and last efforts are shown here.

Now, I’ve received very mixed reviews on this style and I have to admit that it was a great bit upsetting since it was my first time really rockin’ my TWA at work or at play.  So brace yourself.  The TWA is an attention grabber and some of the attention, you’ll want.  Some of it will make you wonder why they felt so led to share that with you, hahaha.  At the end of the day, you have to remember:

1. Your hair is yours and yours alone.

2. You wear it for yourself and no one else.

3. You are beautiful just the way you are.  Period.

If you’re still feeling a little hesitant to let your tresses fall freely, try these two styles: Twist Out High Ponytail (which only gets better) or  Pompadour (which only gets easier), both of which are shown below.  Another one to try is my co-founder‘s go-to Twist Out Updo Puff

Send me some of your TWA experiences by contacting me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, or Here!

Happily, Naturally, Beautifully, Dopely, & RockinMy TWA,
