The other aspect I like about two strand twist is that it has no age limit. Old, teenager or children can all wear this kind of hairstyle which is easy to do as you will see in the detailed steps below.
- Begin by preparing your hair so that it’s ready for styling. In this case, you have to wash your hair (in case its dirty) after which you will have to shampoo and condition your hair. Towel dry your hair to remove the excess water after washing and conditioning it.
- Grab a wide-tooth comb and comb through your hair to detangle it. You can apply some detangling spray for a smoother comb through.
- Now is the time for you to decide the type of twists you would like to create. You can either opt for big or small twists by dividing your hair into large or small sections respectively.
- Part your hair horizontally from your left ear to the right ear to create two uniform sections. You can use the tail of a rat-tail comb to easily part your hair.
- Depending on the size of the twists you want to create, divide the top and bottom sections of your hair into uniform number of sections. If your hair is thick you can go up to 12 smaller section in both the top and bottom section. Secure in place each small section of hair with hair clips.
- Starting with the bottom section, grab one small section which you have just created and secured. Remove the clip from the section, comb through (to remove any tangles which might have been created during the sectioning and clipping process) and then apply a pomade to make your hair look shinny and smell nice.
- Grab a clear elastic, secure that small section at its roots near the scalp then divide it into two equal sections. Now, twist the 2 newly created sections together by crossing the right over the left till when you reach the ends of your hair. By doing this, you will be creating a 2 strand twist.
- Repeat the above 2 steps (6 and 7) to the rest of the small section you create in your hair. You may apply small amounts of gel to hold the ends of the twist in place. It’s that simple, just make sure you twist your hair perfectly and when going to bed, use a satin scarf to wrap around your head and a satin pillow case as they will not absorb the products from your hair keeping it moist and moisturized the following morning.
- For children, you can add some decorations to their twist such as barrettes, beads, bows, elastics with balls to make this braided hairstyle look more beautiful, unique and outstanding.
