Stylist twists have been a firm fixture on the runway for the past few seasons, with session hairdressers unveiling all manner of complex-looking styles.
Want to know how to create those model-gracing looks? Then read on for our top tips for braiding brilliance.
Tilt your head back and divide the hair into three equal strands.
Take one of the outside sections and cross it over the centre strand. Repeat this move with the other outside segment. Using your little finger, take a further portion of hair, about half the thickness of your original section, and add it to the outside strand on that side. Cross the thickened section over the centre section. Repeat on the other side and continue down the length of the hair.
Divide your hair into a side parting and take the whole length of your hair over to one side.
Begin by splitting the hair into two segments and take a small piece of hair from the outside of one of the two main sections and bring it to the inside of the opposite section.
Then take a small piece of hair from the outside of the other section and bring it to the inside of the opposite strand, then pull tight.
Keep taking small pieces from each side into the inside of each section to develop the inverted braided pattern. Keep going until you reach the end and finish by tying the hair with a band.
Create a centre parting from the front of the forehead all the way back down to the neck so that the hair is split into two sections.
Next, split the first of the two portions into three and plait all the way to the ends of the hair, securing with a hair band.
Repeat this process with the second section of hair. Now, bring each of the plaits up and around the head so that the ends are close to your forehead, you will then have to secure them with a couple of hair grips.
