Fly Styles For Short Natural Hair: Part 1

Hey Curlies!

As i go along my natural hair journey, I've come to realize that when wearing short hair, styles can be quite elusive. Majority of styles out there work better for longer hair; so I've been on a hunt for fly styles that TWA wearers can rock. I've come across several that I like and I have a feeling you'll like them too. I'll be posting one or two style at a time over the next few weeks, if you can't achieve these
styles by yourself, print the instructions and carry to the salon;-)  

1. Comb / Finger Coils Style

This is a nice & neat style for short natural hair. The difference between comb coils and finger coils is the ‘tool’ used i.e fingers or comb.

How to achieve this style:
  1. On Freshly washed hair, apply a little of your regular leave-in conditioner
  2. Section your hair in small parts (as if braiding or twisting) and detangle.
  3. Apply non-alcoholic styling gel to smooth and hold the coil.
  4. Twist that section clockwise using a rat-tail comb. Do this gently from the root while sliding the comb upwards until its out of the hair.
  5. Alternatively, use your fingers. Twirl your hair around your index finger until it forms a coil.
  6. Dry the hair for 30-45min (the coils should be firm to touch when dry)
You can wear your coils this way or you can unravel them to make a coil-out style.

2. Coil-Out Style



How to achieve this style:
  1. Follow the instructions above to make coils.
  2. Once dry, unravel each coil starting from the roots.
  3. Separate each coil into 4 or 5 parts to create fullness. The more you separate the fuller the look.
Please do share your pictures when you rock this style. For a 'how to' tutorial check out Comb Coils Video and this Finger Coils Video on YouTube. Enjoy and don't be afraid to try!

*Be warned, if left unwashed/unraveled for several months, coils become locs.



  1. Wow! Finally a post that caters to those of us with TWAs, it gets so frustrating to look at all these BAAs and not knowing how to get there.

    This style TOTALLY rocks!! Thanks a mill. Am not sure I would be able to be patient enough to do it myself but hopefully I can bribe someone to help me.

    P/S: I really love your blog!

  2. @Rondomcarole- Hey gal, nice to see you on the blog! I know what u mean doll, TWAs are a bit neglected out there but all is not lost! You can wash your hair at home then carry our gel to the salon and have a stylist do them coils.

  3. This is wonderful. Their arent a lot of pictures with comb coils. Styling catered to the twa.

  4. @Anon-I'm glad you found it helpful. See you around blogville

  5. I've been natural several times, but have never gotten past the TWA becasue I don't care for the Florida Evans look and didn't know what else to do. With these pics, I can surely get past the TWA stage in style. Thanks

  6. Thanks I'm in the in between stage not twa. But still not long enough for the style I want this was helpful.

I have come to really like how my tight curls frame my face with a wash and go, but I wanted to enhance my curls a bit more. I love the coil out styles presented here and I plan to try it out.
