9 Ways to Style Crochet Havana Twists

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 😍


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.

Views from different angles:


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 πŸ˜‚.

Views from other angles:


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.

Views from other angles :


This is the fastest one in the books. For days you’re not really in the mood but still need that face to pop.

How to style:

Tightly secure all strands of twists using a hair band. Easy right? Meaning of name and Origin: Ochanya means Queen! Mostly given to female children who are from the tribe known as Idoma. Views from other angles:


How to style?

No stress, just flip all that hair to the side. Left or right .

Meaning and Origin of name:

Ufedo means love, usually for the female child of a tribe called Igala.
