    Default April 2015 - twists, Edwardian or otherwise

    What can you do with a twist?

    Here is a video demonstrating the Edwardian Twist, but you can also just twist adding sections along the hairline without doing two discrete sections. I find it adds a little volume in front as well as relieving strain on the hairline. Additional videos always welcome!

    I did an Edwardian Twist into a bun and it turned out great! I even managed to snap some pictures. Hopefully they turned out well. I probably won't get a chance to do anything with them until the weekend, but I'll get them posted eventually!

    I'm having trouble working it out from the video; is this a very loose rope accent braid?

    It is probably most similar to a lace rope braid. There are only two sections and you only add hair to one section as it is closest to your hairline and then cross it over the other section away from your hairline, repeating this process without any twisting of the individual sections. Done loosely it adds volume at the hairline as well as a little bit of texture from the crossed sections. I'm trying to think of a way I can video this without my face in it. . .

    There are other styles of twists, I know Gossamer uses twists but I can't remember if she made a video showing how she does hers.

    It sure looks like a lace rope braid. I wore this to the christmas-do of my work last year.



    It went all the way around..


    And ended in a side braid.


    As you can see, I even got my paranda in there. I tried to keep the third strand in the middle of the rope braid, which didn't succeed completely at the beginning, but it got easier.
    I got quite a few nice comments at the party.

    Images are clickable, btw.

    Holy crap, it's the accent twist for Elsa's coronation bun! They also call these hair rolls! http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Hair-Roll

    Instead of doing two sections like in a lace rope braid, you literally just twist the hair into a tube/roll and then add an inch of hair along your hairline.

    That is gorgeous, Seventy7! I will have to copy your style sometime

    This is something I posted in the forums a while back. The twists really helped the buns hold, and added a little interest.

    Thank you, Five of Five, I found this on YT somewhere and only added the paranda to make it look a bit longer and more colorfull.

    I ended up leaving it in for another full day, as it stayed really well.

    ETA: those twists are lovely. I like how they keep on twisting in the buns, nearly endless!

    Ooh, I do the hair rolls (the kind that is just rolled up, not two sections) into a bun all the time! I think it's much more flattering for my face than just having my hair pulled straight back. I'll have to try it like she does in the video. The second version she showed definitely looked like a lace rope braid.

    I don't know what I do wrong... It falls apart before I manage to put the section I take over the section I hold... I'm too untalented for this I'm afraid...
