Hair twists have always been popular amongst women, as they look very glamorous and are great for formal occasions. As we all know, men did not have these privileges before, and were often observed to sport one cut for years and years. However, now we can identify a phenomenal change in men's hairstyles too. Men can now experiment quite a lot with their mane; curls or waves, coiffures for men couldn't get trendier! Hair twists are now sported by men with equal style and pizzazz. Surprised? Well, they are definitely not similar to the ones women wear. There is quite a twist of a difference!
Hair twists are particularly more popular among Afro-American men, maybe because the texture of their hair is more suited for this hairstyle. Given below are some steps which will help you get that amazing look you've always dreamed of:
Things You'll Need
- Hair Gel
- Hair Spray
The first step is to divide your tresses into smaller sections. The thickness of your twist is going to depend upon upon the amount of hair you select for each section. Shampooing before beginning with the process is advisable and recommended.
For the next step, apply some gel on your fingertips. Make sure that the gel you're taking is one you've used before, and one which you know suits you as it is very important for getting this style right.
Now, twist a selected section of your hair around your finger or around itself as per your preference. You can also use a comb. Like we said before, gel is very important for this look and a good quality product will ensure that the twist stays in place.
You don't have to bother taking the effort for making all the strands of hair point in the same direction. For a look that is slightly messy as well as unbelievably stylish, let the strands point in different directions. Whenever you begin with these twists, do remember to keep a quarter of an inch free at the end of each strand. This will help you to twirl them with your finger quite easily.
Repeat this procedure for all the other sections of hair. If you feel that your hair has turned too dry, or is not staying in its place, you can turn to your hair spray for help. If you get bored with this style, you can choose to wash it out whenever you want. It can also be a good introduction to the concept of dreadlocks if you think you'd want to try that too!
There you go! Isn't it easy to get these awesome twists whenever you want them? So what are you waiting for? Grab your gel and spray and you're all ready to get the cool, stylish look you've always wanted! Good luck, and enjoy the new trendy hairdo!
