Twisting hair

1. Twist 2 sections

Take 2 thin, equal sections of hair, right where your part begins. Hold them at the roots and twist the 2nd, farther piece under the 1st piece.

2. Hold

Then pull the 1st piece toward your face and hold the end in your mouth. Continue holding the other piece in your hand.

3. Make another twist

Now, grab another equal section of hair, further down the side of your hairline.

Twist the new piece with the piece that you are holding from the previous step.

Twist them just like you did before, holding the bottom piece in place with your mouth.


4. Repeat

Continue separating small, equal sections of hair at your hairline, twisting and holding them as in the previous steps. 

Holding hair

Do this until you reach the top of your ear.

Twisting and holding hair

Then pin the last bunch of hair (that you are holding up with your hand) behind your ear with a bobby pin or a flat clip.

Let the strands of hair that you’ve been holding in your mouth spill, like a waterfall!
