If you want to do a little twistin', you don't have to shake your bootay on the dance floor. There's a hip, twisty rolls hairstyle that's just as groovy. It only takes minutes to do, and you don't need Rapunzel-length hair for it, so you short-haired sisters can work it, too. As long as you have a couple of inches to play around with, you'll do just fine -- and you're sure to love the look.
If your hair isn't already straight and you want to get it sleek and smooth before starting, work some straightening balm through your hair and blow-dry it with a round brush. Go over top of your hair with a flat iron and finish with some smoothing serum. Once your strands are straight, use a bit of pomade to create some volume and just a touch of stickiness in your hair, making it easier to work with your hair and get those twists to form.
Pull up a section of hair above one ear, about an inch wide horizontally from your front hairline to the back of your ear. Use your fingers to form the section -- it's easiest if you have longer nails, to create a more precise part line down your head -- or the tip end of a fine-toothed comb. Keeping the section shorter allows you to wind the hair and form a twist against your head. Clip the rest of your hair out of the way so you can focus on this one section without having to keep resectioning your hair.
Starting at the top of the section, begin twisting the hair. Make the twist quite tight, as some of the tension will come out when you pin it in place. Continue twisting all the way down the length of the hair, to the back of your ear. Slide in a bobby pin just underneath the end of the twist, then put in another crossing over top of the first. This creates an "X" shape and ensures the bobbies are secure so your twist doesn't loosen and spin out of place. Repeat this to create additional twisty rows, one beside the other spanning all the way across your head to your other ear. Only add a few on one side for a unique look, or if you only want a couple of twists, part your hair down the center and add a single twist on each side.
Use a dab of smoothing serum over your front hairline to get rid of any flyaways, putting all the attention on those twisty rows you worked so hard for, not on any frustrating frizzy hairs at the front of your head. Mist over the twists with a strong-hold hairspray so they stay put, then flat iron, curl, or otherwise style your loose hair as desired.
