Urban Foraging for Winter Hair: Short Hair Twists

7U6A6125Hello Hello!

This is a simple go-to styling option for shorter hair, a hairstyle I fall back on very often because of its easy loveliness. I especially love this hairstyle for very dirty hair days, because it takes a bit of grit to get these twists to stick, especially when your hair is on the shorter side.

A spritz of sea-salt spray and a sprinkle of texture powder is also a perfect way to prep your hair for this style.

*A little tip: If you have hair that is chin length or shorter like mine, your twists may not entirely join each other very seemlessly, in which case…….Pinning flowers or greenery to distract is the PERFECT solution:) In this case, I used a small Doug Fir bough and Deadly Nightshade Berries to give it a festive vibe.

Short Hair Twists

twistsDetermine what ever part you would like to use for this style. I personally like a deep side part, so I end up with some volume at the top of my head.

On the heavy side of your part, begin a twist at the front hairline, twisting up and under, holding the twist against your head while you add hair in, directing your twist back to the center of the back of your head.

For clarity, check out this video.

Once you reach the back of your head, use a strategically placed bobby pin to secure the twist to your head. (again, check out the above video link to clarify!)

Repeat the same steps on the other side, securing your twist at the back of your head.

If your hair is long enough, overlap your second twist and nestle it in right above your first, pinning it slightly under and out of the way so that the the twists appear to connect together:)

Add flowers if you want. I personally want you to, but that is just me;)

Love my little undercut? I got it cut and bleached a few months ago because I was bored (duh;) and I have been using Tinge Pastels on it to play with the color in a really fun, low commitment way. Try it? I totally recommend it!
