My braid-out curls had fallen. I was going out, and I didn’t want to just slap a headband around the edges. I grabbed some bobby pins and ended up with a half-up hairdo.
How I achieved this Sisterlocks hair style:
- I made two big, loose flat twists on the crown of my head, securing them with bobby pins.
- I took my hair on the sides (which just so happens to be longer than the hair at my crown) and secured it with a ponytail holder.
- I pinned this hair into a bun.
- Leave the back hair alone.

I have found that bobby pins have allowed me to create several different styles on my short Sisterlocks. I try to open them completely before securing them to my head.

My Sisterlocks were really too short to do the “Loc and Roll.” When I tried to roll, there was nothing really to roll. I included a shot of my length: So, I improvised. I achieved this updo on my short Sisterlocks by doing the following: I divided my hair into two sections, one on top and one on the bottom. I put 3 small flat twists in my hair and secured them with black rubber bands. Then, I made another flat twist, larger than the other 3, along the right side of my head. I
