This is totally my momma hair style of the moment.
(Actually it's been my momma hairstyle of the summer, but eh, details, details.)

My sweet sister in law taught me how to twist braid from the top and it's been my magical, quick, still look sort of put together, go-to look. Here's a handy tutorial if you want to try it out!
