7. Side Twist
Just as easy as the Casual Chic style, the Side Twist is much looser. On our last day in Savannah, my friends and I took a walk in Forsyth park. We were all casually dressed and the Side Twist was comfortable to wear on the car ride home.
I pulled my twists to one side, sectioned in two, and twist down mid way. I used a hair tie to keep it secured.
8. High Ponytail
Beyonce’s MET Gala hairdo was my inspiration for this look. Though it wasn’t at the very top of my head, it still was higher than I would normally wear a ponytail.
I bent over to make sure I gathered all the hair in the ponytail and secured it with a hair tie. The High Ponytail was perfected for a night out in the Paris. I danced all night and whipped my hair back in forth. The frenchmen loved it. Ooh la la Mademoiselle!
9. Peasant Girl
I wore my twists in a cute little scarf on our travel day from Paris to Bordeaux France. I wanted my something simple to wear with my vintage cotton dress that day.
The train from Paris to Bordeaux was three hours and I slept the entire way. I didn’t have to worry about my messy hair on the road. For the Peasant Girl look I pulled my hair back and tied on a small squared scarf folded in a triangle. The twists was then pulled to one side and braided all the way down to the ends and secured with a hair tie.

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!
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.
Thanks for checking it out! I think this style will look great on you!!
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!
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!
It was a bit heavy at first but I got use to it.
