DIY – THE SPRING TWIST
Spring is in the air… FINALLY! Or should we say, “Spring is in the Hair”?! Either way, we a have fun hairstyle for you to try! It’s perfect for when you don’t have time for braiding hair and can work great with hair extensions, too. All it takes is a few minutes to get a look that mimics a passion twist; hair doesn’t need to be in fancy crochet braids to be fabulous! Just tuck hair or hair extensions into a beautiful low crown around the head – here’s how to do it:
Today’s Spring Twist Tutorial comes from Kayla Thurman (Cosmetology Student from La’ James International College – East Moline).
Step 1: Begin by backcombing the hair to create a bump. Make sure to smooth out the hair once you are done with your backcombing technique.
Step 2: Grab your headband and adjust it to your comfort level. Kayla decided to go with a more boho look.
Step 3: Grab one small section of hair at the front of the face.
Step 4: Take the section of hair up and tuck into your headband.
Step 5: Continue this process until you have reached the other side. Make sure to add in one new small section of hair each time.
Step 6: Once you have reached the other side, use a bobby pin to secure the hair in place.
Step 7: FINAL LOOK! You can either stop your style here OR you can continue to the next step for a softer feel. You can also twist hair before tucking in step 4, or after braiding hair you can tuck the braids, too.
Step 8: Optional: Grab your trusty curling tool and curl the remaining hair. Once finished, adjust the headband and bump. Then smooth any fly-aways and spray with hairspray for a protective style.
