Hey, everyone. I'm hair stylist Amanda Shackleton from, and today I'm here to show you a Twiggyesque type of hair style. Now if you don't know who Twiggy is she was one of the most famous models of the '60s. And she was known for her very short cropped hair. However, she did eventually grow it out and I want to show you a version of the way she would wear her hair a little bit longer. What I did is I took my teasing comb and some hair spray, that's really all you need as well as some bobby pins and I went and really teased the hair up on the crown of the head just like this. I left it parted in the middle with some hair hanging down, took the sides of the hair, pinned it back, and then with the remaining hair, what you want to do is give it a good amount of hair spray, just kind of all over. Lifting the hair up just like that, taking your comb, just kind of ratting the hair up a little bit. You want to, it doesn't have to be perfect, it's really just to get some texture and some movement in the hair. And then we're going to go ahead and just one quick swoop, we're going to take the hair, twist it around, and then pull it up and just tuck those ends in. With a couple of pins, just secure the ends so they don't stick out. And then you can go ahead, make this a little bigger, give it one more spray for the pieces that are maybe sticking out. Think I'm going to put one more pin right there so it really looks polished looking. Once I've done that, I'm going to take the front, let's pull it a little bit, check out the front, make the front just a little bit higher because they really wore their high in the '60s and then I'm going to take these strands and just tuck them behind the ear. And there you go. I'm hair stylist Amanda Shackleton and I've just shown you a Twiggyesque hair style.
