A sleek and stylish way to wear your natural hair, this look is suitable for everyday wear – all in 7 simple steps! So grab your favourite leave-in conditioner and let’s get twisting.


Section Your Hair.

Start by creating a box-shaped section at the back of your head. Remember, the smaller the box shape the tighter and more defined your end style will be.


Prep This Section.

Now apply a light spritz of a leave-in conditioner to this section of hair, as this will help to hydrate, detangle and make the styling process smoother.


Apply a Cream.

For further hydration and to smooth down any flyaways, apply a moisturiser (like the VO5 Frizz Free Cream) from root to tip and comb through using a wide-toothed comb.


Split Section Into Two.

Okay, you’re all prepped and ready to style!

Now split the section into 2 halves.


Twist It!

Twist your right half over the left half (or vice versa) and continue the motion until you get to the end of your hair.



Repeat steps 1-5 over your entire head.

If desired you can sleep with the twists overnight, protecting them with a silk scarf or bonnet.


Lay Your Edges!

If you have any baby hairs, lay them using a toothbrush and some VO5 Mega Hold Styling Gel.

This will provide tonnes of control with a high-shine finish to keep your strands in place.
