Failed twistouts/braid outs after hours upon hours of styling...we have all been there!! It seems to be a lot harder if you have shorter hair, because you can't just simply put your hair in a ponytail and things will be all better. Fortunately, I have put together three quick styles you can do if you are ever in a time crunch and you still want to look cute and put together.

style 1 for failed twist out

Style 1: Front side twist

  1. I started with my hair in its "failed state" I didn't add any extra product to my hair. I began with parting the front section of my hair

  2. After finishing my desired parting I began flat twisting my hair to one side

  3. Finally I tucked the remaining piece with a bobby pin and fluffed the rest of my hair for the completed look

Style 2: Middle Part Mini Puff

  1. First I started with putting a neat part in the center of my hair

  2. I smoothed down my hair (gel is optional) and place bobby pins to help hold down my hair where needed

  3. I used Ampro gel to smooth down the edges and brushed them down

  4. Finally I picked out my fro in the back to get the completed look

style 3 for failed twist out

Style 3: Shaped Fro

  1. I decided to go with a deep side part

  2. To shape the fro to a more tapered appearance I used a Shea Moisture Thickening Spray  on the sides making sure to avoid the front portion of my hair to avoid shrinkage

  3. I placed bobby pins by the part to keep the hair on its respective sides

  4. I fluffed out the top in the front to add volume and that gave me my completed look

And voila!

There you have three quick simple and easy styles to fix a failed twist out when you have somewhere to go.  I recommend that if you are going to use any products that you are very light handed. When styling my hair the previous night I used Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding and sealed with coconut oil.
