Flat twists are a neat way to add a protective style to your hair repertoire. Regular two strand twists, which can hang loosely, are usually best for natural hair, but flat twists work well on natural and relaxed textures. They're similar to cornrows, but may be more user-friendly to beginners; you work with two strands of hair at a time with flat twists instead of three, as you do with cornrows.

To begin flat twisting hair, start with a part at the hairline.
