It's been an actual AGE since I last vlogged on Youtube!
But, that's about to change so I'm giving you a notification now to head over to my channel and subscribe to Crystal Afro on Youtube >here<.
Look out for the video tutorial of this style. 
If you know, or you're practicing how to flat twist, it's genuinely a quick and easy style.
(Not like when experienced bloggers say "It's soo quick and easy to do.")
Start by sectioning off some hair in the front for your flat twists.
Pull the rest of the hair back into a bun.
Once you've done your 2 chunky flat twist in the front, then go back and neaten the bun. I used a soft brush and my favourite holding product ECO STYLER GEL, to smooth the hair into a bun. 

Divide the hair in the bun into 2 sections and twist each one. 

Finish off by using bobby pins to secure the twists in the bun underneath themselves.
Finish by pinning the flat twists off to the back.
This style looks much neater if, unlike me, you use a comb to do your partings.
There's a few reasons I like this style:
It's good for medium length hair. 
It's a good protective style as it keeps the ends safely tucked away. 
It's very quick to create and can be done on wet or dry hair. 
It looks great on any hair texture (no need to do a twistout for texture first)
I went out to the club with this style but I think it's a great professional style to.
If you decide to try it out, let me know how you get on.
Let me know what you think. Would you wear this style?
