Hair: The simple twist

Yes, it’s that simple.  Twisting.  Not this kind of twisting, which is pretty simple too.  But a quick twist in your hair, whether it be one strand, or multiple, can add texture and style.  And you can keep it as simple or make it as elaborate as you want.  The beauty of twisting is that it’s less complicated that braiding, but the end result can look very similar to a messy braid.    Twists will work best on wavy hair, or after a texture spray (like the one a friend recommended) is applied to hair.  You can get it done with straight hair though.  If you don’t have texture spray, give your hair a light spritzing of hairspray and tousle it a bit before twisting.  Here’s a video tutorial, from anneorshine, on creating a quick bohemian style twist.



I was able to get one side of my shoulder length hair done in about a minute.  Easy!  And don’t get discouraged if you’re at the bottom of your twist and you have loose hair that you don’t like.  That’s where our good friend Mr. Bobby Pin comes to the rescue.  With all the twisting you should be able to tuck and hide the pin in your hair.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!

        This is Nancy again. I switched my login name to be more consistent between Dappered and Full Clutch. The hair style was as quick and easy as the video made it out to be. I tried the up do but it didn’t stay ‘up’ after my bike ride/helmet hair. I quickly redid my hair at work and I feel a lot more attractive than my normal helmet hair.
