We’re head over heels in love with these twist styles.
A Nubian twist is created by twisting hair into hair extensions that come in a very tight, coiled pattern. They’re different from box braids, Senegalese twists and other protective braid styles due to their lack of sheen. It’s such a fun and playful style that we’re never going to stop loving, and it’s perfect for ladies with tighter curls. Nubian twist hair is also great for women trying to make the switch from relaxed to natural hair, and conceals your hair during the in-between stages while protecting hair from damage. So if you’re looking to change up your style, try out one of these short Nubian twist hair looks:
