Messy Twist Tutorial

December 18, 2013

I rarely attempt much of a hairstyle outside of my standard messy bun or lose waves. After trying this 5 step twist, I am thinking I should change things up more often. This is a good one to style for a night out!
Teasing comb
Bobby pins
Medium hold hairspray
Texturizing sea salt spray

Step 1
Start off with day-old, unwashed hair. This will give you a better texture and more grip for styling. Spray it thoroughly with sea salt spray. Optional : use your hairdryer on the cold setting to dry and set the spray.


Step 2
Using your teasing comb/brush choose a side of your head and brush all the hair on that side tightly around and back to the opposite side of your head and pin with bobby pins in a vertical line to secure.

Step 3
Hold out the excess hair that was brushed to one side and start to roll it in on itself to create a large french twist. Don’t worry if a few little pieces fall out, this is supposed to look natural!

Step 4
Once you have rolled all of your hair into your head, secure it with some bobby pins in the same vertical manner as the step above.

That’s it! Hope this helps you brave your own twist!
