1. The Quadruple Twist
Good For These Types: Straight, Wavy, Curly
Good For These Lengths: Short, Medium, Long
Hair Should Be: Damp by using a spray bottle
What You’ll Need: Spray bottle of water, fine-tooth comb, hair clip to section hair, small ponytail holder, mini-butterfly clips and hair gel or light styling cream
How To Do It:
1. Part hair in the middle with a fine-tooth comb, and gather a section of hair on one side of the part, from the part to the outer eyebrow.
2. Divide this section in half, with one half near the part and one half away from it. Clip the half closest to the part out of the way. Hold the remaining half and begin twisting it on a diagonal path toward the part. Twist firmly, fathering additional hair as you twist, but not so tightly that it hurts. Twist until you reach the part, then secure the end with a ponytail holder, letting excess hair hang down.
3. Unclip the half-section closest to the part and mist again. Using the same method, twist this section firmly in the direction of the part. Secure with a ponytail holder.
4. Repeat the process on the other side of the part to create two more twists, for a total of four. Attach pretty mini-butterfly clips to the ponytail holder on each twist. Rub a pea-sized amount of gel or light styling cream between your palms and scrunch the curls to finish
