On the left side of your head, grab two front sections of hair. The first one should be directly off your part and the second one should be the piece right behind it, which runs parallel to the hairline and just in front of the ear. Twist the top only, then pull back both sections of hair at the back of the head and begin twisting the strands together, starting behind the ear. Basically you want the front of the twist to have two distinct textures — the smooth one underneath and the twisted one on top. These two pieces will then begin to blend together into one seamless twist. "The flattened sides is what keeps this look modern," says Heather Packer, a stylist at Cutler Salon in NYC. "If you just had the one twist it would be too much of a literal hippie look. By being flatter on the sides, it keeps the hair from puffing out, which adds to the modernity."
