Hey lovelies. How are you all doing? So today I’m going to be sharing on 9 ways you can style crotchet Havana twists. To make this more fun, I gave each of these styles a Nigerian name, hey I’m still in the independence mood, so this one’s for my Nigerian girls, let’s get right into it 😍
1. THE FOLASHADE
I love this style particularly because it’s stylish and playful at the same time .
How to style: To achieve this look section both ends of your twists. You could twist them each before rolling them up together in wrap. Use a band for maximum hold. You determine the size of your buns by the amount of strands you pull up.
Meaning and Origin of name: Folashade is a name given to the Nigerian female child, particularly by the Yoruba’s. Folashade means the “honor bestows a crown.”I guess these pretty buns are my crowns. Do you know any Folashade who’d rock this style?

This is one if my favorites. simple yet chic. How to style:
This look can be achieved by pulling out a few strands of your twists, mostly to the side, right or left depending on your preference. Make sure the twists lay flat before twisting them into a bun, so they don’t look too big or awkward. It should look like a doughnut when you’re done. Use a tiny scarf or band to secure it if you want and you’re good to go.
Meaning and Origin of name: Isioma is mostly given to the female Igbo child of Nigeria. It means “the one who is fortunate and blessed.” I know only one Isioma in all my existence, indeed she’s fortunate and blessed.

3. THE DANA
This is definitely one of my go to styles. It is classy and easy to do.
How to style: Use a bandana or tiny scarf to pack your hair in a high pony tail. Ensure its firm so it doesn’t sag on any sides. Keep adjusting until you achieve desired look.
Meaning and Origin of name: Dana means dark in complexion. Oh yes, dark and beautiful. Dana is given to Nigerian female Hausa babes. Dana not Diana uncle Tekno. Thank you 😂.

I love this hairstyle because it slays. It shows my full face and it’s just classy. How to style: This could be a bit tricky if your twists are very full like mine. The first step is to pack all your hair up in a pony tail. Take four or three strands of twist on both ends of hair. Inter cross them, and roll up any extra hair. Repeat the process until you get a big fat Ivie donut.
Meaning and Origin of name : Ivie means precious, where my edo girls at? Edo girls are among the prettiest Nigerian girls. All my Edo friends are too fine abeg (please).
views from different angles:
I love this one because it’s bold and unusual.
How to style: Take as many strands of twist as you like, on the right or left side of your twists, section them into a bigger twist. Finally, roll it into one big bun. Use a band to secure it if it’s not tight enough.
Meaning and Origin of name : Idara simply means Joy. No wonder I’ve always loved then name because it’s similar to the meaning of my name. Females who bear Idara are usually Efik/Ibibio.
