4.  Mohawk

I loved this look for a night out in the Paris Jazz Clubs.  I wanted something edgy to go with my new dress I purchased in the Garment District.  The Mohawk requires 5 even sections across the head.

Place each section in a ponytail, two strand twist, wrap around, and tuck under.  I played up the look with my lightweight jeweled headband.

5. Sophisticated Lady

We went to dinner every night in Savannah on my girl’s trip. This night I wore a mid-length black and white striped dress.  I wanted to show off the length of my Senegalese Twist.

I sectioned my hair in two parts across.  More on the top, a little less in the back.  I pulled the top to one side, though not completely over. Just behind my ear.  I secured it with a hair tie.  I pulled all the remaining hair over to one side.

I enjoyed wearing the twists to one side. It played up my classy sophisticated look.  It went well with my big clip-on vintage earrings and red lipstick.  I’m such a lady!

6. Casual Chic

This is my go to, everyday casual chic look.  Senegalese Twist are so easy and require very little maintenance.    I use olive oil on my scalp every few days and sleep in a bonnet or a satin pillowcase.  I also clean my scalp with peppermint shampoo using a wash cloth once a week.

This Casual Chic look was done by braiding my twists down the middle in a loose french braid.  Once I got to the base of my neck, I created a twist and secured it with a hair band.

  1. I love this!! I cannot believe you put these in yourself! I had Marley twists for the first time and loved them! I love all your styles. So creative!

  2. Love all the great styles you mentioned in your blog Katrina and of course you look beautiful! Ive been looking for a summer hair style wear I dont have to play with my natural hair everyday and I can also look professional for work. Definitely will try your recommendation just need to find someone to do it for me at a reasonable price. Dont have patience like you to braid my own hair 🙂 Thanks Katrina for your inspiration and once again excellent work on this blog.

  3. Does your head feel heavy when wearing the Senegalese twist in a bun? Do you recommend that my natural hair be straight before adding the hair or can i add the hair my natural curl pattern? Which option will blend best with my hair with minimal fuzziness. Thanks!

    1. I think it depends on which hair you use. The Marley twist I recommend using your natural hair. The Kanekaleon hair worked with my natural hair but may be better if I would have blown it out. I may try that next time. I also used lots of Jam!

  4. So cute Katrina, you did an excellent job in styling. I need to watch some You Tube Video’s pronto!!!

  5. I really love the elegant look! I don’t know how to do hair to save my life but I have learned a few natural hair tricks on YouTube. I may just have to try these twist thank you so much for sharing!

  6. So impressed that you did these yourself; your hair looks fantastic! You’re making me consider trying out Senegalese twists now! So versatile. I think my favorite look is #14 “Classy Lady”, but they’re all superb. Looks like a fun trip too!

    Great post!
