16 Senegalese Twists to Inspire Your Next ‘Do

Braids and twists are an easy and fun way to change up your ‘do. One of our favorite styles is the Senegalese twist. As the name implies, Senegalese twists, also known as rope twists, originated from the West African country of Senegal. We love how this gorgeous, protective style offers a different take on the current braid trend. When done properly, these two-strand twists are less time intensive to put in and remove than traditional three-strand plaits and with care can last up to two to three months. Furthermore, we love how versatile this style can be. You can wear it up, down, twisted, coiled, curled or wrapped — the iterations are boundless. Here are 16 styles to rock right now.
