I often get asked how do I wear my hair for work. While most of the time I rock whatever hairstyles I want, there are those times that I decide to be a little more on the conservative side. One of my favorite hairstyles to rock is the halo braid or crown flat twist.

The style takes five to ten minutes to do and is perfect for when your hair is old and you do not feel like washing it. It is also a great hairstyle for #smartfros who work in more conservative workplaces. I have to admit the more my hair grows the harder it becomes to grip my hair to actually flat twist or braid it. But I will be rocking this hairstyle until my hair decides otherwise.
(1) Moisturize: Like all hairstyles, start off with moisturized hair. I used the Curls Blueberry Bliss Leave-In Conditioner as my moisturizer.
(2) Create Small Braids: Start off by creating two small cornrows. This is going to spice up the hairstyle a bit.
(3) Part Your Hair: Next part your hair down the middle.
(4) Flat Twist or Braid: This step you can choose to flat twist or braid your hair. I chose to flat twist. Flat twist or braid one side of your hair. Make sure to weave the two cornrows you created into the flat twist or braid as you work your way down. Bobby pins the tail pieces. For a more sleek and clean look, use eco styler gel to smooth down your hair before you begin to flat twist. Repeat on the other side.
Because I know I probably did a terrible job explaining how to create the hairstyle. You can view the Full Tutorial which includes 3 other hairstyles for work down below.
