Lookbook: Mini Twists with Spring and Summer Outfits and Accessories

With spring and summer right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what natural hairstyles to wear and how to pair them with chic, professional outfits and accessories for work, church, and special occasions. Today’s lookbooks do just that!

Floral prints and pastel, cool colors like blue and beige are in season. Also, bright yellows like canary yellow can be paired with blue and beige to add a terrific color “pop” that brings out the best in each color, creating truly radiant looks.

The natural hairstyle of choice is Mini Twists. Mini Twists are similar to twists in that they are a protective natural hairstyle that are created by twisting two strands of hair together. The main difference is that Mini Twists are styled smaller, creating a long-term hairstyle that can be worn daily. 

Mini Twists are ideal for all hair types, especially 4c hair or coarse hair.

WATCH this video and read this blog post to learn about how to make your own Mini Twists (as shown in the images above) with a tutorial by blogger VeePeeJay.

Accessories… accessories! You can’t complete the look without them. Pair these looks with ornate hand-painted earrings like these by Living Queens or a large floral hair clip like this one by Flowers from Fatima.

You’ll look chic!

How will you dress for spring?

Want more? Stay tuned… I’ll be posting more lookbooks for Mini twists this month!
