Mini twist, senegalese twist, and kinky twist are all the rave; especially for that effortless protective style. Today you will learn How to Mini Twist using a U-Part wig, yes a wig! We will learn how to cut down installation time, which saves our sanity. Since this is a wig you can always grab it and go, with a few simple steps. Lets get started!

What I used:

Big Chop Hair 22″ Corkscrew Curl U-part Wig (Visit Big Chop Hair & use checkout code MATV to save money!)
Wig Block
Stand for Wig Block
T Pins
Bobby Pins
Water Bottle
Comb / Brush
Creme of Nature Extra Hold Edge Control
Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie Coconut & Hibiscus
Shea Moisture Frizz-Free Curl Mousse


Prepping the U-Part Wig:

  • Attach your U-Part to a wig block and separate off three wefts per section.
  • Hydrate the section with water, styling mouse ,and styling cream.
  • Brush through the hair to distribute the product evenly and remove tangles.
  • Twist the hair and finger coil at the end.
  • Continue this process throughout the entire wig.

Prepping your Real Hair:

  • Prepare your own hair by leaving out a section at top and in front.
  • Place cornrows in the back. Braid 5 rows or more in the back.
  • Apply styling cream to the leave out. Spray with water.
  • Be sure you don’t over-saturate your hair with water.
  • Twist your hair using the same density and size as you did on the wig.
  • Be sure to finger coil at the ends.
  • Secure the ends of your cornrows up.
  • Gather your twisted hair in the front in a ponytail to keep it out of the way.
  • Snap the wig into place on one side. Pull down and snap all the way around.
  • Finish with your favorite edge control and style as you please


TIP: For night time care you can simply remove the wig (or sleep in it), pull your leave out twist back loosely and secure with a satin scarf.
