3 Ways for you to get your TWA to look more feminine

5 Feb

When you first big chop and you have a TWA its so fun. It brings out features that you may not have noticed on your face or it can just force you to boost your confidence. TWA’s makes you feel different almost “risky” making you try new stuff that you may thought you couldn’t do like a change in your fashion. Even though all of these are great points having a TWA is not always like this… sometimes having a TWA can be extremely stressful maybe because you don’t know how to style your new fro or keep it moisturized but a big problem for other naturals(used to be me and still is) is that we think that we look manly. Sometimes its not easy to make your TWA feminine because males usually have TWA’s or shorter do’s. These 3 tips I’m about to give you are ways to spice up your TWA and make it more feminine.

1. Earrings are your best friends! Earrings bring out your face and make your hair the last thing people look at. Earrings is a great way to distract people when you’ve cut your hair really low… earrings almost bring automatic positive attention to your new TWA. The best earrings to purchase are big ones! I’m talking huge(as long as your comfortable) they makes your head look small and not so out of place.

2. Hair accessories is just as important as your beloved earrings.  Hair accessories can bring out your girl side and its incredibly fun to choose hair accessories because there are so many too choose from. Not only do hair accessories make your TWA stick out and look more feminine they can be used to cover up bad twist outs, bad hair days, and trial and errors.

3. Henna! henna! henna! henna can also be one of your favorites and not only does it spice up your TWA color without damaging it you can be a permanent ingredient in your regimen. Henna can make your black TWA to a very soft, moisturized auburn cloned hair. The best thing about henna is its natural no harm will be done to your beautiful kinks, curls and coils.

If you have any more tips please share i would love to hear them 🙂
