Some days you spend 3 hours installing a fabulous set of two strand mini twists that you absolutely love and can't wait to rock! On other days, you toil away in your natural hair for 8 hours only to end up with a head full of straggly, ugly twists that you can't justify taking out because you've just invested a full day of work on the installation.

These twists are staying in but you have to go out! What's a girl with a head of unwearable twists to do? No worries! I've got you. Keep reading for a couple of tips and tricks that will help you rock your "unwearable" twists.

1. Toss It Into An Updo

You can get creative with this first option. Depending on their size the twists can be styled in similar ways to loose hair.  Buns and Roll, Tuck and Pin styles work really well on twisted hair. Add some hair jewelry or beads to give the look some spice!

2. Wrap It Up

Head wraps are always a fun addition to your outfit of the day. You've got so many choices! You can even show off some of your unwearable twists or hide them all!

3. Fake It Girl

This one is a personal favorite! You get the look of a gorgeous, kinky puff but your hair is actually protected within those mini twists that were so patiently installed. Looser twists, especially at the root, will result in a more seamless and realistic look. It's honestly a win, win situation.

There you have it! Three ways to rock your "unwearable" two strand twists.

Let us know! Do you have any interesting tips/tricks for wearing ugly twists.

 "I always do the same styles."

"You can't do anything with 4c hair!"

"Natural hair is difficult."

"It's so hard to style..."

Does that sound familiar? I've heard this refrain so many times and it's so sad. Funny enough, I've found myself muttering these same words under my breath while wrestling with this head of very kinky, coily, nappy, knotty hair! It can be a struggle. I know this. You know this. We all know this!

We accept the fact that kinky hair isn't always easy to manipulate but we should also acknowledge that it's probably one of the most versatile textures around. Is there anything that our hair can't do? Sure, we have to put in a tiny bit of extra work and yes on other days we have to put in a few hours of extra work.  But isn't it worth it when your healthy head of kinky hair is done up in a gorgeous style?  

Below I've shared with you some of my favorite styles from the past five years.  All of the styles are pretty simple. There's quite a variety for you to choose from; high puffs, two strand twists, twist-outs with a twist and buns, buns and more buns.  You can modify most of them to suit whatever stage of the natural hair journey you're presently enjoying. Happy styling!

Much Love,


It's good to be back.

It's been years since I've consistently published blog posts but believe me, Deep Fried Stilettos has been alive and well in this daydreamer's thoughts. We've simply been awaiting the day when fear and procrastination would give way to endless possibilities and productivity. Today's that day, let's claim it!

Believe me, I'm still afraid to open myself up to negative criticism but there's so much that I want to share with you! So we're taking that leap. Ok? Are you with me?  Let's do this and do it right.

I've been contemplating the fate of my older posts. Oh, my word. Some of them are ridiculously cringe worthy!   I just want to delete the entire thing, throw the whole blog away! Literally. But, on the other hand I started blogging when I was 17 years old and fresh out of high school which is definitely a cringe worthy period! These pages hold so many memories and it's an absolute joy strolling down memory lane, regardless of the embarrassing pot hole or two!

There's so much that I'd love to share with you; my natural hair journey, nutrition, Caribbean living, health and wellness, so many ideas, my fingers simply can't type fast enough!

I  hope that you've been absolutely wonderful, blessed and showered with love.  Here's to new beginning!

Much Love,
