The 2-Strand Twist
There are so many hairstyles to rock these days. How does one define their style? As a professional cosmetologist, I was always taught my my instructors to : A.C.T. This means when determining which hairstyle works best for your client you must A.C.T.
1. Analyze-the condition of the hair , and the type of texture of the hair.
2. Communicate- with your client by determining your lifestyle, habits, type of work etc. and the factor in determine if the hair is in good condition, is there any thinning, excess shedding or breakage of the hair.
3.Type of Texture- understanding one’s hair type (straight, wavy, curly and kinky (round, oval, or flat ). Knowing this information will allow you as the stylist to determine if the proposed hair style is suitable .
My client: Liannah is a talent individual that is active and loves the arts. Upon doing A.C.T. Selecting the 2-strand Senegalese twist in 18 inches was a perfect match for her hair texture, lifestyle and versatility of looks.
Always gather necessary implements, tools and supplies. Organization is key because it will allow flow and efficiency with the installation process.
Following the prep and set up, my client’ s hair had been shampooed in advanced, so I applied the plait braids as a foundation for applying the crocheted Senegalese Twists. Using hair clips allows for keeping the hair controlled during the braiding process.
The timing of the instillation process can vary with head size, hair density and amount of braids used.
