Popular Twirled Hairstyles
Whether you've got your own special event coming up or you're just trying to spice up your everyday hair routine, hairstyles with a twist are big on elegance and incredibly low maintenance. They are easy on the budget too, usually involving basic accessories such as hair grips, hair slides and hair ties.
If you've got long hair past your shoulders, try a romantic twist across the front of your hair. This look is pretty and polished for daytime.
For those ladies with short hair, this hairstyle doesn't exclude you from the twist trend. Half-twists can give you a fierce look if you tease your hair to create some volume and then tightly twist your hair back on the side of your head. Try it with curls or straight hair and don't be afraid to pair it with bold accessories.
This hairstyle requires less skill than braiding, and the results can be just as appealing and impressive. You may also like to twist the hair over your forehead into a quiff and pin it back or twirl the side of your side hair to create a semi-updo. Hair can be twirled into long rolls or piled into chignons of all kind. The style is yours to create.
