Faux Shaved Side on Natural Hair

This hairstyle was inspired by the many other natural hair ladies who were daring enough to shave one side of their hair.  It didn't quite turn out the way I envisioned it in my head, but I rocked it anyway.  I received a lot of compliments for this look too!

I washed and conditioned my hair first, and then I twisted it up using my trusty dusty Worlds of Curls Curl activator gel.  I let it air dry overnight and the next evening I took down one side of the twists and then flat twisted my hair.  I used Fruit of the Earth aloe vera gel to flat twist my hair with only.

The best advice I can give to anyone trying to master the flat twist is to make sure that the section that you are working with is well detangled before you attempt to try flat twisting. 

And yes! I know, I know, I know, I promised a flat twist tutorial (and while we are at it, an updated hair routine video, retro natural hairdo tutorial and a few other videos) in the future, I haven't forgot!

I intentionally wanted my hair to be fluffy and undefined.  I got that look by just twisting my hair into the biggest size twists that my hair could hold on its own without having to use a hair tie to hold the ends together.


  1. Cute style! I love how fluffy your hair looks!

  2. I wish I could flat twist like that. You've got skills!
