This tutorial comes highly requested by you guys!  This style debuted in August when I posted my current hair care regimen.  This style is extremely easy and requires use a banana clip for the effect of having a fuller/wider bun.

My banana clip of choice is the Caravan with a ball closure, as opposed to the clincher clips.  I purchased them about 3 years ago (when they were much cheaper) and neither have yet to fail me.  The ball closure is definitely advantageous as it  makes the clip practically unbreakable.  Literally.  You can separate the pieces and put it all right back together as if nothing ever happened.

What brand banana clip do you use?

Cute style! How many twists did you make before hand? Also are those medium twist?

Hi Gumbo, Honestly I don’t know how many twists were done. These are medium-size for my hair texture and strand size.

Would you please do a tutorial on your two strand twists?
I love them, but would love to see your process.

Hi – Do you have a tutorial for your two strand twists? They look great.

Thanks, but unfortunately I don’t. I really don’t do anything special besides my hair being stretched prior to twisted, for elongated twists.

EDIT: I will do a tutorial for twisting sometime this Summer. Sorry I could not be sooner.

Look forward to the tutorial! Do you stretch by blow-drying?
