Men’s Hair – Twists II
As promised, this post will feature photos of the fiancé’s hair twisted by yours truly. Of course this is not a men’s only style, it looks just as great on females, but I particularly like to see it on guys because it’s not quite twiggies and it’s still neat and professional enough to be worn in the office.
At first I used to do two-strand twists on his hair ( and part out even sections *SMH*), but after seeing this done by my stylist, I decided to try it out on his hair and was amazed at how easy it was. It’s VERY easy to do and in my opinion ( and his too) looks great. In fact, he likes it better when I do it as opposed to the 1 time he let a stylist do it but that might have something to do with the exorbitant price tag attached to have it done in the salon…hmmm.
To do this style I used:
Water bottle spritzer to keep hair wet
Eco Styler Krystal Styling Gel
Paul Mitchell Fast Drying Sculpting Spray
Oil Sheen (Optional)
What I did:
- First I started with sopping wet freshly shampooed and conditioned hair.
- I slathered the hair with gel. I did not try to spare the gel here as the gel will help to hold the twists in place.
- Taking small sections of hair and using the fine-toothed comb, I kept twisting the hair with the comb as if doing drop curls. I didn’t waste time parting the sections, just grabbed a section and twisted. Parting slows you down.
- I continued until all the hair was twisted.
- Hair was then spritzed with the Sculpting Spray. Through trial and error I found that the twists keep better if hard, so the spritz helps achieve this.
- The curls were then set by placing my fiancé under the dryer for about 30 mins.
- Sometimes I used a finishing oil sheen but that is optional.
