Awww,only loved the number three hairstyle

I loved looks one and four. Four was especially helpful to me because my hair LAUGHS at banana clips, lol. They are a joke to my hair. I tried a frohawk with three small ponys but it lacked fullness. I’m gonna try this method soon.

Same here–loved 1 and 4. Not sure about the other two. I’m post-BC and only 5 inches long, though. So 4 is the only one I like that I can pull off. Glad I don’t have to use fifty combs to do it 🙂

awww,I tought I’d finally find something creative and nice for my 6 inches long hair, but I guess it was too good to be true…cute hairstyles tough.

same! lol

Loved ALL the styles. I feel like you get the most impact w/MEDIUM length hair. I need to put my hair in a protective style to get at least 2–3 more inches. But I’ll DEFINITELY be keeping these in my style arsenal 🙂

Yeah her hair isn’t really short like mine is so the first 3 styles are a no go for me 🙁

beautiful. I wish more sites would showcase short and medium length styles more often or just give the balance. I feel it would encourage more people with that length to take a change and wear their hair as such more often.

I love three and four!

Disappointed, I didn’t see any styles for short hair, but I liked the styles that I may wear in the future. I guess short is subjective.

Kristina

I agree with Emah…this hair isn’t exactly short. I can swing a shorter fro hawk, but my twist out looks nothing like that. Guess I should look for Black Girl Short Hair for help 😉

My hair is about 6.5–7 inches in length and I only know how to do 2 styles right now: #3 and #4. Granted, my twist out isn’t as long as hers, but I think it looks just as nice. I get more height and volume because my hair doesn’t grown downward at all. I’ve also gotten compliments on my fro-hawk too. Ladies, don’t let her hair length fool you. You don’t need a lot of length for #3 and #4. Especially if you wear flowers or hair clips to show a little color/flavor. I think I’ll try #1 next weekend.… Read more »

She is one of the few people I follow on YT. Her hair is about the same length as mine and her styles aren’t at all intricate and hard to do. I always look forward to trying them out.

I had to trim a good bit of hair last night due to SSKs *shakes fist* so my hair is too short to do these. I still think you can modify the styles for your length. She is so pretty and so are the styles. Thanks for sharing : )

I’ve done all 4 of these and love 1, 2 and 4. I’m a very lazy natual so a whole bunch of individual twists are to much work for me but I can rock a Fierce flat-twist out by only doing 10–12 flat twists.

Alecia
Guest

Ditto…flat-twist out is my go to style

Patricia
Guest

This is adorable if only I knew how to flat twist 🙁

Patricia

I’m trying the first style tonight

This is good. That in between length can be tricky. This is where I am. I’m currently doing a kinky twists ‘regimen’ as my hair grows like weeds in them. Out of sight-out of mind but when I take them down my hair’s out for like a week. These style suggestions are great. I may try one.

A couple of these are cute but I wouldn’t necessary call the lengths “short”

She’s such an adorable goofball; I had fun watching her. And I liked all the styles. I’m planning to wear a variation of the first one for a formal event this weekend :-). I hope I see more of her videos, too.

Love them but I think the need is for protective styles. Unfortunately for me, I get fuzzy quickly and my twists knot up.

I like the Grecian updo…it is one of my favorite styles since I got to mid-length hair.

I just saw the video and tried #1. I’m loving it even though if I did it right it would look better. Just slept on my hair last night and wore a big fro today. Now that my hair is getting longer I need to find more styles.

For the first video…it took her 8 minutes to put an elastic band on her head? …that was unnecessarily long.

I have definitely done # 3 ” O‘so moist twist out ” people always compliment me on it too ! I think I have done a fro hawk once , which occurred last Summer and oh my goodness it was so big and not moist how I wanted it . Now number 1 I haven’t truly done because I have only wore my twist out bang — look — thing once with everything else pinned up . And I thought about number 2 but I did not go through with it because I didn’t like the way my face and… Read more »

I wear the frohawk almost everyday. I’m not so good with braids or twists yet. It’s quick and easy and I love it. Plus I get compliments on it a lot.

Im have problems with the ends of my hair untwisting. I have tried twising it with a comb, fingers, using gel on the ends nothing holds them togather. What can I do?

juelle
Guest

Try combing the ends or cutting them a little so they will stick together easily

Nice, I wish my hair had the same texture and length to do all of these styles. I’ve got a couple down though. I checked out a post on http://hairandstyle.org/ and found a few more that would compliment these.
