DIY Twisty Turn Braid: A Step-by-Step Guide

Get ready to rock the Twisty Turn Braid with our easy guide! We’ll show you every step and give you all the stuff you need. It’s super simple, and perfect for beginners.

Items needed

  1. Hair elastics
  2. Hairspray (e.g., RUSKs Working Spray)

Necessary Steps

Step 1: Take a small hair section and create a ponytail.


Step 2: Create a small opening.


Step 3: Flip the ponytail up and pull through your small opening.


Step 4: Grab a new section and create another ponytail right below your first section.


Step 5: Same technique as before: create a small opening, lift the ponytail up and  pull through.


Step 6: Tighten your ponytail.


Step 7: Continue with the same technique until you reach the neck.


Step 8: Once you have reached the neck, continue with a french braid. TIP: Get creative here… Maybe trying a fishtail!


Step 9: Pull the braid apart to make it big & dramatic! This also helps to hide elastics and blend the style together.


Step 10: Finish with a hairspray to keep everything in place. Alejandra used RUSKs Working Spray.
