Two-Coloured Double Twists

If you are an artist or just a creative person open to spending a little bit more time at the hair salon then two-strand twists combining two contrasty colors will be the coolest looking option. It does require time in the initial hair appointment but once your hair gets parted in twists and dyed accordingly it won’t require any further styling at home.

Chadwick Boseman With Casual Twists

A great alternative to the same old coil-looking twists can be this casual way of styling short two-strand twists and growing the sides a bit longer than we have seen on the previous slide. Both options look great, but necessary to admit: they both require a lot of time to keep up the hair length and texture.

“Dread-looking” Male Twists

Worth to admit that some people don’t consider using hair as a part of their general style or image and that’s totally understandable. Not everyone should be a fashion model in their everyday life. In such cases having your hair twisted in the dread-looking braids will free you from the daily hair routine.

“Hip-Hop” Styled Double Twists

For the admirers of the good old hip-hop classic: long, messy-looking twists might be a great choice especially if you add a few metal accessories to them. Just part the hair exactly in the center and shave the sides, then it will be easy to roll the twists in the way to cover the face. Also, you can always put them in a knot in case you get tired of something covering your eyes.

Orlando Jones And Classic Twists

We will start with something very old-school and simple. These neat, tidy-looking coil twists are an elegant addition to someone with a classic, moderate dressing style. Of course, the more time you spend on taking care of the coil’s structure like wearing a special protective cap during sleep and using mineral oil, the tidier it’s going to look every day.

Framed Sides And Short Twists

For the owners of short textured hair this would be the most comfortable way to style your hair: keep the most part of your hair almost shaved off but at the same time leave some parts on the top a bit longer and start doing the two-strand twists only from the middle of your hair just to tidy things up a bit.
