LBS Beauty Tutorial: Milkmaid Twist Pin-Up


Last week I posted this outfit that I wore to NYFW Day 3. After posting it, I was inspired by one of LoveBrownSugar's Facebook friends Juliette (hey girl!) to post this tutorial about how I did my Milkmaid Twisted Messy Pin Up Thingy. Yes, I made up that name. No, it's not hard to do.

As a disclaimer, my hair was "assisted" for this look by a sew-in weave that I had in for about 4 weeks as a protective style. I used the Kinky-Curly textured hair from True Indian Hair in 14-inch and had it sew-in so that my edges were left out all around. That allowed me alot of versatility for styles like this.


What You'll Need:

Fine Tooth Comb
Your Favorite Styler (Gel or Curl Creme)
Hair Pins
Bobby Pins


Step 1:  The first step is to split hair into sections and moisturize before applying your favorite styler. Curly girls, if you have shorter length hair, consider doing a blowout for maximum stretch. I applied MorrocanOil Curl Defining Creme to two sections of my hair.


Step 2: Use a fine-toothed comb to separate the hair neatly into two sections. Starting from the temple, flat twist each section going backward towards the nape. Twist until the very ends of the hair. Use hair pins to conceal strays.


Step 3: Take both ends of the chunky twists and pin them to either side of your head at the nape. Use bobby pins to secure. I'm actually cool with my "beady b's" but if slick hair is your thing, this would be a good time to spritz your edges with water and lay them down with gel. Sitting with a satin scarf on for a few minutes after applying water & gel will help set your edges as well. I recommend Eco-Styler gel.



Voila! That's the finished look.

UPDATE (2/29/12) - Check out how Lexi of Curls, Coils & Kinks rocks this style three different ways!

  1. i'm glad you put this up! I kinda miss having a weave right now. I'm so tired of twisting my hair up every night :-(

    1. Girl I feel you! Every once in a while you need to switch it up, just to keep it fresh. That's the versatility of natural hair :)
