I love twists as a natural hairstyle. Once you style them, they're very low maintenance and can last quite a while, depending on how you care for them at night and how you style them during the day.
They look good on adults and kids and are very versatile, becoming twists outs if you want to unravel them.
I've been styling them for years, so it seems second nature to me, but for anyone who wants to try them (on herself or on her kids), try my step by step twist tutorial to fashion yourself a head full of natural and beautiful two strand twists. If you think this is a hard style to do, you might be pleasantly surprised to find out they're not!
