Hopefully, our photos appeal to your creative side. The styling tips are meant to increase the fun of twisting and twirling your hair into new hairstyles

  • We hope we are not too presumptuous saying that women like to change their hairstyles from time to time or for special occasions. After all, we did not ask all women everywhere. However, experience tells us that it may be a safe assumption. Over the eons, people have paid attention to their hairdo with more or less extreme results. What is your fancy? How do you feel about a radically new hairstyle? For all who are not quite so adventurous we present these slightly less radical styling suggestions.

    Even though you may have found the perfect hairstyle for yourself already, you may welcome learning about ways to invent subtle variations for special events. This usually involves using the tools of the styling trade like bobby pins, hair slides and scrunchies. Experienced hair stylists use their hands and creativity to braid or twirl. Twirling requires less skill than braiding, and the results can be just as appealing and impressive. You may like to twist the hair over your forehead and pin it back or twirl 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. The twirled hairstyles of the stars and models in our gallery are meant to inspire you.

    It’s time to try your hand on twirling your hair! In his video, Armin Morbach demonstrates how to style three chignon variations; one of them includes a twirled hair element.

    Styling: Use hair wax to keep your hair straight. Take an about 1 inch wide strand of hair at the temple and twist it around a few times. Tightly hold this strand while wrapping another about 1 inch wide strand of hair around the tightly held strand. Twist the combined strands around a couple of times. Keep adding strands of hair in this way until reaching the back of your head at about ear level. Twist strands of hair on the other side of your head in the same way and combine both twisted strands to a ponytail at ear level in the back of your head. Wrap a thin strand of hair around the ponytail scrunchy for a more pleasing look

    Styling: Create a straight side parting and comb your hair straight. Separate a large strand of hair over your forehead and temporarily secure it. On both sides of your head, twist a strand of side hair at ear level upward and toward the back. On one of the sides, you need to start with the end of the strand, which is swept sideways from the forehead. Add small strands of hair into the hair roll as you keep twisting your hair into an upward roll toward the back of your head. You may need to use bobby pins to secure the emerging hair roll. Roll the ends of both rolls into a casual, loose knot low in the centre of your neck
