Hot girl summer is about to be in full swing—that means new and gorgeous protective styles to channel, amirite? Find some inspiration in the stunning Senegalese twist styles we’ve rounded up below!
1. Senegalese Side Twists
Wrap those twists to one side of your mane for a long, luscious look that goes on for days. We live for a good side braid in general, but amping it up to a protective style? Bomb.com. A glowy makeup routine to complement the look is also encouraged.
2. Medium-Sized Senegalese Twists
Not too large and not too small for all our in-between queens. These twists were simply made for summer — they go with everything from a bikini to a wine-tasting fit. Shades or no shades, this look will also still steal any pool side show.
3. Accessorized Senegalese Twists
To really make your style pop, you have to embellish. Add twists with shells for a little extra pop or gold accessories if you really want to exude those golden goddess vibes.
4. Slicked Back Senegalese Twists
When it doubt, slick it back. These sleek twists are the perfect way to keep hair out of your face while tanning, just sayin’. Bonus points if you add accessories to this style as well😉.
5. Senegalese Twist Buns
Space buns are always a good idea, but making them twists? Iconic. Go on and rock them at the park, out at the beach, on a hike — they look fab any time, anywhere.
6. Passion Twists
Okay, so these are actually passion twists, but who’s complaining? We had to include these next-level braids in the mix because they’re yet another protective style that deserves more attention. Another thing to consider? Trying out a new hue to go with!
