Tired of wearing your same old boring two strand twists? Don't let lack of inspiration bring down your style game. Work your hair in new ways with great styles you can create in a few minutes to turn old looks into something new and exciting. Be willing to get creative and you'll fall back in love with your natural double strand twists again.
Give those locks some height. Pin them up into cute hairstyles that can turn any classic and everyday look to a head-turning style everyone will notice. Gather twists at the nape of the neck and twist into a roll. Pin the twists up and leave bangs in the front for an elegant look you can rock to work, the grocery store or even for a day on the beach.
You don't have to shave your head to capture the style of a traditional mohawk. Use your twists for inspiration to create a new spin on a funky style. Flat twist your twists on each side of your hair in sections toward the center, leaving a few twists out in the center. Secure with a rubber band. Leave the front section of your hair out and bring forward for a funky, faux-hawk you can dress up with your favorite earrings and a color-popping lip stain.
Heading to a black-tie affair? Give your normal two-strand twists a little bit of class and glam up your gown with twists that sit gently to the side of your face. This elegant look is achieved by wrapping twists to one side of your head and securing with lengthy bobby pins or hair clip. You can even braid your hair in straight cornrows in a pattern that crosses over to the other side of your head and twist the ends for a polished and professional look. Dazzle your fans by adding some olive oil shine when you've completed the look and pair with a statement necklace.
Bun of Beauty
Dare to be bold with a bun in an unusual place. Gather hair to one side on the top part of your head and secure with an elastic band. Tuck loose hair into the band, pin with a bobby pin and shape a loose, circular bun that's bold. You'll have to wear big, statement earrings with this look and lots of color on the eyes to create a fashion-forward, avant-garde look.
