Hairstyle How-To: Recreate the Modern Twist Trend I'm Obsessing Over This Week
Posted 02/17/11 at 06:58PM by Kristen Giordani
Lucky for you (and me) I was backstage and got these shots of the stylists in action creating the look. Here's the how-to if you want to try it at home...
Step 1: Prep wet hair with a volumizing mousse (Try Shu Uemura Art of Hair Ample Angora Volumizing Light Foam, $33 or Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Mousse, $7.)
Step 2: Blow dry hair using your fingers to rake in as much volume as possible
Step 3: Part hair in the middle and separate it into four sections -- two in the front, two in the back.
Step 4: Curl each section with a 1 inch barrel curling iron and secure each curl to the head with bobby pins for roughly three minutes. Note: I skipped this step because my hair has natural texture, but if yours is stick straight and fine, definitely curl it.
Step 5: Take the pins out, softly brush out the curls, and twist both front pieces towards the back of your crown, securing with bobby pins.
Step 6: Take the remaining hair in the back and fold and roll it into itself behind the two front twists. Pin like crazy until the twist feels secure.
Step 7: Secure the look with a few spritzes of your favorite hair spray.
So? What do you think about my cute new style? Are you as excited as I was to try it? Or, if this look isn't your style, what about trying a messy, undone bun?
