Single two-strand twists grant an array of style options for those with short hair. Hair twisted into individual cornrows, or flat twists, from the sides of the head towards the middle create the illusion of a faux mohawk.
Alternative styles for hair that's too short to gather into a ponytail include twisted cornrows fashioned into a high bun or low chignon. Once the twists have ran their course and become somewhat fuzzy or frayed, spiral curls are achieved by unwrapping the twists and left in a loose, natural state. Individual twists rolled on flexirods, cold wave rods, or straws create curl definition as well.
