Two Strand Twists

Two strand twists are becoming an increasingly popular hairstyle.

They are simple to do and, depending on how you maintain and wear them, can last from 2 – 4 weeks.

You won’t want to keep them in any longer than 4 weeks, as your hair may start to lock.

TIP! This style looks super cute with flat twists in the front!

You can twist your hair while damp or dry.

Two Strand Twists Tutorial:


Difficulty: Beginner

What you’ll need:

  • Hair clips or bands (to section your hair and keep it out of your way)
  • Hair moisturizer
  • Wide Tooth Comb (optional you can use your fingers for a more natural look)
  • Rods or Curlers (optional)

In all the hairstyles I do, I prefer to start from the back and work my way forward, but whatever works for you, works for you. If your hair is freshly washed, place a towel over your hair until it is just damp (don’t rub the towel around your head because it can roughen the hair up and dry it out).

If need be, use the bands or clips to section your hair into manageable sections. Put some conditioner into the section of hair you're working on.

For her, I used Garnier Fructis conditioner, simply because it was what was on hand. It made her hair very soft and smelled great, however, it didn't seem to work as well as some other conditioners.

To begin, grab a small amount of hair. I didn't part her hair at all, but you don't have to do it this way. Start twisting your hair by wrapping one piece over the other until you get to the end. Repeat this until you are finished.

Remember to tie your hair up at night. In the morning you can lightly spray your hair with a moisture mist or water.

For a different and new look, undo your twists after a few days for a curly afro.

I hope you've found this page both inspiring and educational. This style is a great style when you need to do something with your hair quickly!
