Twists are the new braids: 6 new ways to twirl your hair

This feminine hairstyle made its debut on the Fall 2014 Dolce and Gabbana runway. It's classic chignon meets messy updo, making it the perfect autumn hair hybrid. To achieve this look, twist your locks into a loose braid and tie into a low bun, letting a few soft layers fall free. Lacking texture? Spritz in some dry shampoo.

The ultimate plus of the twist trend is its versatility. Amanda Seyfried’s bouncy waves become centre stage when paired with a subtle side twist. It’s a simple adjustment that will add depth and personality to your strands. Feeling casual? Try it on pin-straight hair.

Channel the retro glam era (a la Charlize Theron) by creating a deep side part and rolling sections of hair inward toward the scalp. Then secure the twists with hairspray — the stronger the hold, the better! For extra-thick strands, lock-in style by tucking bobby pins under the fold.

Australian model Jessica Hart dazzled at Cannes in a messy, twisted updo. Take it from this beauty and upgrade your standard bun with a subtle quiff while twisting large sections of hair in from the sides. For extra oomph, let a few curls fall.

Carey Mulligan’s twisted updo is the tress version of last year's glittery Gatsby film: a modern take on the 1920's Jazz Age. For a similar look, pull hair half up and twist into small sections, then secure with bobby pins. Repeat with the bottom half and twirl a few strands in from the sides.

Before slipping your locks into a polished top knot, take cues from the Carolina Herrera runway and sport the style with a playful twist. Start by slicking back your hair with BioSilk Silk Therapy and tie it into a pony. Then use a mesh bun insert to form the foundation of your high bun, while twisting strands to create the circular look.
