My second favorite hairstyle is by all mean, flat twists. They are easy to put in and take out. They also keep my hair stretched, moistured and tangle-free. I’ve even done demos in the past where I showed the ladies who came out to my natural hair workshops, how to do flat twists. Because it became known to me that a lot of hairstylists and naturalistas are confused by this particular hairstyle that only requires wrapping two strands of hair over one another.  

There are many YouTube videos you can watch that demonstrates how to do flat twists. To get the perfect hairstyle, you will need to practice a few times to get this hairstyle right. It also helps to have pre-stretched and fully detangled hair, otherwise, your flat twists won’t turn out as clean as you’d like it to look.

As mentioned in another blog post about two-strand twists hairstyles, the way your flat twists turns out will depend on a variety of factors such as the length of your hair, hair texture, and whether you twist on wet or dry hair. 

To get a smooth look like the ones from Esther of Game of Fros, it’s best to work with dry stretched hair. Twisting your hair with creams or gel causes shrinkage, which can then result in frizzy flat twists that looks old.
