You can achieve this hairstyle using the Darling Afro Twist Bulk. This hair is so versatile it can be crocheted, trimmed and shaped to look like your hair! Fluff it up using fingers to separate the curls in the Afro Twist Bulk. This hair comes in different colours so you can choose whichever colour tickles your fancy.

For a shorter and more defined ‘fro, trim the Afro Twist Bulk and leave the curls intact without separating them. Also use less hair on the head so it looks just like Lupita’s!

How about this? Hold the hair into a side ponytail then crochet some Afro Twist Bulk to the ponytail to create a gorgeous side puff. You can use as much or as little hair as you desire. Either way you will look like a star! And our Afro Twist Bulk will make you shine.

You can also keep it subtle. If you have short hair, this works great. Leave your hair short at the sides and crochet some Afro Twist Bulk at the center of the head into a mohawk. You can also cornrow the sides if you have long hair then crochet. Snip snip and voila! You have a simple but stunning natural look using the Afro Twist Bulk.

See how versatile the Afro Twist Bulk is? It has beautiful 4C-like curls to achieve all your Afro-inspired looks. You can play around with it to achieve almost any style you want. Add your own spin to it!
