John Boyega: Tight Twists And Fade Afro Hairstyle

3.0 3 Star

When actor John Boyega isn’t sporting braids, his go-to is to style his hair in tight twists with a sharp fade on the sides.

MFH says

John Boyega’s tight twists looks great on his Afro locks and sets off his suited and booted look to perfection. We love that the textured top is paired with a sharp fade.

Look after your twist out with deep conditioning hair treatments and work in a little matte paste for hold.

  • Keep length in the hair if you want to style your hair in twists.
  • The style looks great with a high, medium or low fade, but to get John Boyega’s look ask your barber for a medium fade.
  • Ask for a tutorial in the chair so you can recreate the twists at home.
  • To get John Boyega’s Afro twists, first decide on the size of twists you’d prefer. Larger sections create a more casual look and take less time, while small sections result in a sharp look like John’s. Section hair with a comb or your fingers as you go.
  • To make the twists, take two pieces of hair from a smaller section and twist them together. Then repeat the same technique all over the head until all the hair is twisted. You can work a bit of defining cream into fingers to give the look hold. Beware this could take several hours, so you might want to get this done at your barbers.
