A twisted hairstyle is a great way to add volume and texture to your hair. It can be done on any hair length, but it looks best on short layers about one inch long.

So, if you have medium-length hair, it will look more like a braided style than a braid. But don’t worry, and we’ll show you how to get the look for any hair length.

What you need.

  1. Brush
  2. Curling iron or wand.
  3. Bobby pins.
  4. Hair elastics.
  5. Twist hair oil or serum.

Creating Twist 

Step 1: Curl your hair with a curling iron or wand in 1- to 2-inch sections.

Step 2: Twist each section of hair and secure it with a bobby pin on top of the head in a bun shape. This will create a base for the twist hairstyle that’s easy to manage and manipulate into place later on.

Step 3: Continue twisting each section of hair until all of your hair is twisted into place on top of your head. Secure each twist with a bobby pin as you go along, making sure that all of your twists are facing forward or backward (depending on which way you want your final look to be). You can also add extra hair pieces throughout the twisting process if you add more volume to your style.

Styling the twist hairstyle into a bun

While the passion twist hairstyle is a classic look, it’s easy to do and can be worn in various ways. You can even wear it in a bun, which is perfect for those days when you want to wear your hair up.

Here’s how to style the twist hairstyle into a bun:

1. Start with freshly washed hair that’s completely dry. If your hair tends to frizz, use a smoothing serum to keep it under control for this hairstyle.

2. Part your hair down the middle and brush it out so that you have even sections from front to back on each side of your head. This will help you get an even amount of hair in each twist.

3. Take one section from the front of your head and start twisting it around itself until you reach near the back of your head, where you’ll secure it with an elastic band. Repeat this step on both sides until your hair has been twisted into small sections connected with elastic bands at the ends.

4. Take one section from the back of your head and twist it around until you reach where you started on both sides, where you’ll secure it with an elastic band or bobby pin at both ends if necessary.


The twist hairstyle is a great way to spice up your look. It’s also one of the easiest hairstyles, making it perfect for the beginner who wants to learn how to style their natural hair or clip in hair extensions.
