How To Do Twists - Another Method

I think most everyone does these little cornrow type twists. We love them and use twists in lots of our hairstyles. I know some people have a hard time with the french twist braid, so this is just an easier way to get the same type of look.

Using the end of a rat tail comb, start wrapping the hair around it. We have a smaller rat tail comb that I would normally use, but it's gone MIA. I'm guessing it's in with the Princess's doll stuff. :) The thinner the handle of your comb, the tighter the twists will be.

Keep wrapping the hair around the comb while adding sections of hair all the way back.

Keep going until you get to the end of the row.

Slide the comb out of the twist and add an elastic at the end of the row to keep it in place.
Quick and easy!

It's too bad it's come to this, but unfortunately it's not an innocent world that we live in. Hopefully the watermarks won't be too annoying or distracting. But I'm sure any of you with kids would understand why we don't want our pictures taken (as you would want the same courtesy shown to your children.) Thank you!!
