At this point, lightly mist the twisted hair with hairspray and smooth it using your styling brush,
or fine-toothed comb. Also, carefully comb or brush the hair sticking up from the twist to make sure it is still tangle-free.
This is the main part of the style. All that remains is to add finishing touches. For this you can
opt to tuck the ends of the hair back into the cone of the twist for a tidy finish, or perhaps add some extra spray (maybe one with
glitter or bold colors) and a flat iron to make bold spikes fanning out around the twist. For our demonstration, however, we've chosen
to use our marcel curling iron to create a spray of curls.
We create the spray of curls by taking small slices of the emerging hair and wrapping them around
the curling iron's barrel. Depending on the width of the slice, we alternated between barrel curls and spiral curls. After allowing
the curls to cool, we used a small amount of styling pomade and our fingers to separate the curls into smaller ringlets and smooth
them out. The tendrils of hair we left in front of the ears were curled into long spirals, which were sprayed with hairspray and
allowed to cool before being smoothed with the fingers to give a softer look.
The finished style is fancy, and suitable for most evening functions as is. If you preferred,
or if the occasion calls for something a little glitzier, you can add your favorite accessories - jeweled pins and barrettes, or
gilded combs. The variety of options for finishing and dressing the style make it immensely versatile. However, the most important
aspects of this up-style are that it is a very quick style and is sturdy enough to last all night.
