Twinning Hair Art with @jehat

“I’m totally obsessed with fauxhawks right now,” says Jill Ehat (@jehat), who is the mother of twin six-year-old girls. “My favorite top five styles are fauxhawk braids, bun hawks, buns, pancaked Dutch braids and rope twists. I’m especially good at tighter braids and active styles because my girls have something nearly every day like dance, swim, tumbling or soccer.”
If there’s a way to braid hair, Jill Ehat probably knows how to do it. She started at an early age doing hair for her two sisters and then friends in high school and college. Now it’s a big part of her life raising her daughters. “They love doing hair, too—they will braid, twist and put in ponytails on anyone that will let them!” Jill says.
The girls even like to “twin” with other girls on Instagram. As Jill explains, “‘twinning’ is when you and another hair account wear the same hair on the same day. We try to post at near the same time, which gets tricky when they’re around the world. My girls like to look on a map & see where their hair twins live: Sweden, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Netherlands, etc. I think it’s especially fun to twin with actual twins!”
