FBY 101: How to tie the classic Lily twist


Hey girls!

I hope everyone is having a great week! Today, I am officially introducing a new blog series called ‘FBY 101’. This blog series is one where I will be giving different tutorials on different things, not just fashion. It will fulfil my promise of passing every bit of knowledge I have to my readers, so the tutorial will range from how to wear certain trends, how to to switch up a look, homemade face packs, cocktails, drinks and maybe food. I am really excited as to what this new blog series will do for my readers and how well you all respond to it. I hope that you will all enjoy it and learn a thing or two from my tutorials.

First up on FBY 101 is a tutorial on how to tie the classic infamous Lily twist with the African Iro and buba. I have made available pictures and also words to describe the entire process. I tried to make it as easy as possible by capturing each and every one of my movements. I hope you all enjoy this post and I would love some feedback on how you did. So, let’s get started!


Step one: Hold both sides of the wrapper and make sure they are of equal length.


Step two: Take those two ends and twist them in a 360 degree motion.


Step three: Take those two ends to the back and tie in a knot.DSC_0216DSC_0217 DSC_0219

Step four: After tying them, chances are there will be excess fabric. Neatly tuck them inside the wrapper.


Step five: Make the necessary adjustments if there are any.DSC_0232

And there you have it! A simple lily twist!
