Finally, I carefully parted my hair in two sections: Point A starts over one eyebrow then curves toward the center of my head and ends at the nape. The objective is to have all the flat twists directed toward the part in the center. I made my parts for flat twisting each about 3/4″ to 1″ thick. I flat twisted each section toward the center part all the way down to the ends.
Being that this is a mohawk-like style, there a few directions to take toward additional styling upon completion. Once finished, I took the dangling twists and braided them in an inverted french braid from the nape up only half way. The rest of the hair was loosely piled on top of my head and secured with hairpins.
I definitely feel like this style represents Miss Nappturality because like Miss Nappturality, this style is graceful and multi-faceted. There are many dimensions, so it can be styled several ways. That’s how most individuals are. Today you could be reserved, tomorrow you might feel fun and foxy, and the day after you could be ultra classy chic. To me that’s what being America’s Next Natural Model means. No individual is one dimensional. As long as you represent who you are with love and respect and in the most beautiful manner, (no matter which side you feel like exposing and no matter what the masses have to say about it) you are being true to yourself…and that is nourishment for the soul. That is Miss Nappturality and that is me.
