Chris Rock’s girlfriend Megalyn Echikunwoke turned heads this past weekend as more than Rock’s rumored fiancée. The actress and stunning beauty gave us hair goals with an edgy take on flat twists. Her ‘do is perfect for just about any hair type and length and is a great go-to protective style when looking to skip on heat.

Celeb stylist Larry Sims created the smashing ‘do by adding strategic levels of volume and texture to four parted sections. Sims said he sprayed each section with Göt2b Mess-Merizing Texture Spray, then double-strand twisted each section from root to tip.

“Leaving the two side twists closer to the head, the top two twists were done loose for volume and texture,” he said.

Once Sims achieved the shape he wanted in the crown, he connected the twists in the back into a basket bun & secured with hair pins. He recommends finishing off with a conditioning edge gel like Smooth N Shine Tea Tree & Olive Edge Control.
