A perfect vacation hair style is one that is protective, low maintenance and long lasting. If it's a beach vacation it needs to be resilient enough to last through lots of swimming, multiple co-washings and still look good for the duration of the holiday. That's a tall order, but this style fit the bill. Here's a tutorial on how I achieved this mix of flat twist, two strand twists and threading, to create cute and durable style.
