Hi, I have had a medium length afro for the past two years, but want something different now. I was thinking of something like lenny kravitz in these pictures:

...and I have hair like this but a bit longer on top (4b i think):

So I was wondering if I could do this at home or should I have to go to a salon?

Also once it is done how do I maintain it and make sure it doesn't go flat when i sleep on it etc.?

I wouldn't mind hair that is like Harold Perrineau from Lost either:

    you dont have to got to a salon.
    this looks like a 2day old twist out or coil out?
    both are easy and make sure you just barely coil the edges.
    if you want your hair to shrink up and appear shorter ,style it while its wet/damp.
    if not do it dry.

    Thanks, do i have to leave the twists in or do i undo them after a couple of hours, and should i use wax or anything like that?

    my hair type/texture is pretty close to his and i get similar results styling it dry. you can use a pomade afterwords for shine if you like.

    leaving the twists/coils in over night will help hold the style.
    some people twist for a week and then untwists the next. but i co wash my hair 3x a week sooo that doesn't fly for me.lol
