I love two strand twists!!! Love them, love them, LOVE them. They’re not just for the ladies though, men can wear them too! The process for the twists is the same for males and females. One difference that I do make when doing two strands on guys is the size and position of them. Most guys don’t want a bang of twists for example. When I do other people’s hair I take a little more care than when I do my own to make sure it’s the best, it’ll last, and that they come back.
I always start the two strands in the back at the nape of the neck and work my way forward. When doing guys hair I don’t work in quarters, instead I work in rows if that makes sense. So, starting in the very back I part a row of hair to twist, and clip the rest of the hair up, and out of the way. If the hair’s dry, I spray it; add product, and then twist. When the row is done I part a new one and repeat. The twists closest to the neck are small so that they hold and won’t come undone from shirts, coats, or anything rubbing. Hair around the edges of the head and near the front generally are small too. The section in the middle, on guys, I typically twist a little bigger than I would on myself.
