Creating Two Strand Twists With Extensions can be done two different ways; with a weave or singular strands of bulk hair. The two strand twists can look natural with extensions. Wash and condition your hair as normal, no matter which type of extensions you are going to use. If using bulk hair extensions, you will also need some form of cream or water-based hairstyling gel.
Picking out a weave to attach to your normal hair will be easiest by visiting a salon that specializes in African American hair and accessories. It’s best to pick out a weave that is the same color and texture to your own natural hair. The length of the weave will depend on how long you want your two strand twists to be. You can get as creative as you want with this weave. After you have it picked out, putting your hair into cornrows will be next.
The weave will then be sewn directly to the cornrows. In order to hide the tracks of the weave, be sure to leave enough hair out of the cornrows. This can be achieved by taking a comb and parting the hair starting at one temple and going all the way across your head to the other temple. Once the weave has been sewn to the cornrows, this hair that was left out can be straightened with a flatiron and placed over the tracks on top.
To make these two strand twists look natural, you will need to attach the desired length of strand with a bobby pin to your sections of hair. You can make the sections as large as you want, just keep in mind that this is how thick the twist is going to be. Braid the strands in with your natural hair. If you braid down at least an inch, this will be enough to secure it.
Once the braiding is complete, take the hair and divide it into two strands, since that is all you need for this hairstyle. Create your twists down the entire length of your hair and secure with a small elastic band. These methods of two strand twists with extensions work with all textures of hair and can be done by novices with little difficulty.
