Maiden Twists 1. Start with a section of hair behind your ear or directly above, depending on the length. 2-3. Split the section in two pieces and begin twisting until you reach the end. 4. Take the twisted hair and wrap it over your head. Pin in place. 5. Repeat on the other side. 6. Once you have twisted and pinned both pieces, be sure to tuck any ends so they don't show.
