Twists

Crunk it up with twists that reach higher than before, like these twists worn by comedian/actor/singer Jamie Foxx.  Leave some of your natural afro at the base of the twist for more height, then twist the rest up to the end.  Again, a squared-off hairline is what’s hot now.  Since there’s more hair on your head, there’s less on the face – shave the goatee and keep the moustache.

 

Cornrows

If you’re going to plait it up, take a hint from NBA star Latrell Sprewell and make the cornrows thinner.  In recent years, braids were fatter and done straight back from the forehead to the nape of the neck, but today you can cock them off to the side and include side parts.  It’ll take longer, but it’s worth it.  Again, keep the moustache, lose the beard.
