Flat Twist Hairstyles

When Serena or Venus William play, besides their superb tennis skills, we also notice something else. Can you tell me what? Yes, you are right! It's their hairstyle. Don't you just love their hairdo? These hairstyles are called flat twist hairstyles. Wondering whether you too can have the same black hairstyle with your hair? Why not? Flat twist hairstyles are not as difficult as they look. They are easy to make and they make one look... gorgeous! So if you want to learn more about these hairstyles, then given below is some more information about it.

Flat Twist Hairstyles for Black Women

Some people say flat hairstyle's are for black women only. However, every woman in this world can try out this flat hair twist hairstyle. The only thing that you need while making this natural African American hairstyle is patience, long or medium length hair, some hairbands and a mirror. If you have these things, then let us see how we can get this hairdo in no time.


  • The first thing that you have to do is comb your hair properly so that there are no tangles.
  • After that, divide your hair using the comb, from the forehead to the nape of your neck. The division should be right at the center of your head.
  • Next divide each section into even parts and then put the left part over the right part and keep twisting.
  • While doing this, pull the two ends (not too hard so that your hair breaks!), but only so that the twists are close to your skull.
  • Twist the rest of the hair in a similar manner and make sure that the thickness of each twist is even. This braid hairstyle would look very odd indeed with one thick and one thin twist!
  • As you finish with the twists, use the rubber bands to tie them up.
  • Look at yourself in the mirror now and don't get a shock when you see a pretty looking girl staring back at you. Flat twist hair styles can also be tried out by men too.
  • For a smooth effect, you can either apply some oil or water based gel on your hair, so that the small strands do not stick out when you have made the flat twists and braids.
Now that you know how to make flat twist hairstyles, let us see some of the flat twist hair designs that you can try out. Don't worry, they are not that difficult to make. So, let's check out some of the flat twist styles.
