Whether you want to step outside the style box or have a penchant for all things outrageous, yarn twists, braids or locs are a fun way to up the ante.

Mixing your natural tresses with yarn (yes, actual yarn) are a quick and easy way to experiment with a new look, without the worry of keeping it permanent or having a negative reaction to synthetic tresses.
