The twist is a classic and one of the easiest way to curl you hair. Here are the steps:

  1. Wet your hair with water, try using a spray bottle. You want your hair slightly damp and not dripping.
  2. Separate your hair into sections. Usually two will do the trick, but if you have really thick hair, the more sections the curlier your hair will be.
  3. With each section, twist the hair, and turn the twist into a bun.
  4. Leave it to sleep and let it dry overnight.


TIP: if you want a more solid curls, spray the twist with hairspray (it won't look as natural)

  4. Let your hair, don't blow dry it all the way, natural drying is best
  5. Take a headband (the stretchy ones) and place it around your head - hippie style.
  6. Take one inch of the hair and wrap it around the band.
  7. Keep doing that all around, and TIP: make sure to push your curls close to each other, so there is enough room.
