2012’s Hottest ‘Do: The Twist!

Move over braids, there's a new hot hairstyle in town: The twist! Celebrities and models alike are forgoing plaits in a mass movement toward twisted tresses. Unlike a braid, which requires some serious finger dexterity, twists benefit from being easier for the average, non-stylist to create on her own. But don't mistake their simplicity for dullness — we've seen so many interesting and funky iterations of this hairstyle, from retro rolls to romantically knotted updos, we're swimming in possibilities.
The keen-eyed gals at Beautylish have singled out some the coolest examples of this new hairstyle that we're just itching to try out for ourselves (hello hairline twists!). Check out their top picks for new, non-snoozy ways to get rolling this spring. (Beautylish)
Are you so over braids or do you think they'll always be in style?
