Products Used



  1. Prep the base with Twisted Elastic Cleanser, Twisted Elastic Treatment and Twisted Curl Magnifier Cream.


  1. Create a horseshoe parting from ear to ear, then split the horseshoe in two down the middle. Isolate the two half-horseshoe sections. In the bottom section, pick up small sections of hair, twist and cut on an angle, adding notches into the twist without closing the scissors all the way, to add texture.


  1. Repeat up the head, releasing hair from the top sections as you work.


  1. Apply Twisted Curl Lifter Foam to the hair, then diffuse.


  1. Apply Dark Oil to the diffused curls and shake the curls out for more volume.
