If your latest do is a big fat don't, this guide will help you give your hair a whole new look with a twist or two.

You will need

Step 1 Wrap extensions around fingers Wrap the midpoint of the extension around your index and middle finger creating a loop and two equal sections.

Step 2 Pull hair through loop Pull a section of your hair, about a 1/4-inch thick, through the extension loop and tighten to create three separate strands.

Step 3 Apply gel Apply a dab of hair gel to prevent the sections from frizzing; just don’t make them too brittle or stiff.

Step 4 Weave three sections Use a simple braid pattern to start and weave all three sections together until your hair becomes the middle strand.

Step 5 Combine hair with extension Separate your hair into twp equal sections and combine with the extension to create two different strands of both the extension and your natural hair.

Step 6 Twist together Twist both sections together in a checkerboard pattern by throwing one strand over the top of the other over and over again until you reach the end.

Step 7 Dip ends in boiling water Dip the ends of the extensions in boiling water to secure the twist, or let them remain frayed and use a hair tie to hold the twist in place.
