Bailey’s Double Lace Twists | 3-Minute Hairstyles

Our Same-Side Lace Braid tutorial has been VERY popular, just passing 3,000,000 views yesterday!

Well, my 13-year old daughter, Bailey, knew it was popular, so she took it upon herself to figure out how to get a similar look… but with twists!  As you can see below, she figured it out!

Double Lace Twists | Cute and Easy HairstylesThe technique is very similar, by adding hair only into the top, but instead of braiding the strands together, you are twisting the two strands as you go back {like a rope braid}.

Here Bailey shows us all how to create “Double” Lace Twists on herself, simply to show you how easy it can be done! {I love that my twinnies are getting creative with their own hair!}

This is literally a 3-minute hairstyle! If you like, you may begin with only one twist which is very cute as well!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 bobby pin, 1 small hair elastic, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Part off a medium size section of hair in the front bang area, close to the part line {if you have bangs, include them in this section to incorporate the bangs into the twist}…
  2. Now, divide this section into two strands and to twist them, the front strand over the back strand first…
  3. As you complete that one twist, add a small strand of hair from the top of the head {this creates the “Lace” effect to the twist as you go along}…
  4. Continue twisting and adding in hair for another 4-5 stitches, and then finish off the hair with a rope braid.
  5. Pin that top twist behind the head, out of the way, by using a bobby pin to keep it tight on the back of your head…
  6. Now grab a similar size section of hair in front, below the first twist, and repeat steps 2-4 to create a second lace twist…
  7. Finish off the second twist with a rope braid as well…
  8. Using your free hand, unpin the first twist from behind the head….
  9. Take both twists and connect them with an elastic at the end…
  10. When you let go of the rope braids, they will naturally twist together a little creating the illusion of a complicated 4 strand twist…

  • rhoda

    can you try a twist braid and fishtail all in one

  • Bluebell

    Oh, this is really cute, I love it and am going to try it ASAP.
    Also I have a suggestion. The other day I took this gold colored chain and braided it into my hair. Everyone liked it a lot and it didn’t get tangled. I was just wondering how you would braid a chain into your hair. Thanks, And I love this website! 🙂
