TUTORIAL: Wavy hair and side twist.

Hello! I am posting today yet another hair tutorial / look - woo! Today's hair look is this very voluminous, wavy hair with two side twists! Enjoy.

So, for this look you will need:
  • Hair elastics
  • Comb / brush
  • Bobby pins
  • Hair wax / putty

First of all, I recommend this look to be done the night before with damp hair. This I think gives the best results and makes for a softer looking wave. However, it's completely up to you how you want to do it!

So, with either wet or dry hair gather sections about a half an inch to an inch thick, make 3 sections and tightly plait them. Simply repeat this step all around your hair until all of your hair is in plaits. Secure the plaits with your hair elastics. If your fringe is too short or you don't want to plait it, just secure it with a bobby pin away from your face. You can twist the plaits into buns or simply pin them back with more bobby pins so that they are secure and in place on your head, or you can leave them down.

And now, we wait! If your hair is wet just wait overnight and sleep on those plaits or just wait until your hair is completely dry. If your hair is dry, then I'd suggest waiting a good few hours, maybe four or five to ensure the waves will form tightly.

Once you are ready to take your elastics, do so carefully and separate each plait as you go. You hair should now look pretty big and pretty wild! It's time to brush these waves out, gently do so with a brush or comb against your hair - this limits frizz. It is up to you how much you want to brush your waves out, the more you do the looser they should look.

For the side twists, just take a small section of hair from one side of your face. Split this section in two and plait them together in much the same way you would with three sections. After about half way, stop and secure the hair with a bobby pin. Repeat on the other side and your are done!

So limit frizz and create a smoother, softer look - take a little bit of hair wax or any other styling product you prefer and put some on the tips of your fingers, go through your hair in a downwards motion with your fingers, applying the product.

Tah-dah! Your hair look is complete. Have fun trying this look out if you do, I hope you found this post helpful. Thank you very much for reading and please be sure to comment down below!
