corkscrew twist tutorial

video

I really do hate hearing myself on camera but I'm doing this for the good of my blog followers - so you have to suffer with me...sorry!!

I hope these tutorial are helpful to you who are trying to learn. The key to doing it though is PRACTICE. I've had lots of practice to perfect it & so it's fast & easy for me. You'll just get better & better each time you do it and you learn your own mistakes along the way so don't feel discouraged!!

I'm so glad you showed this! Mine always seemed to look a little different and I couldn't figure it out. Now I see what I was doing! Thanks so much and keep it up!!

ps. Nobody likes to hear themselves on camera, but you sound great! Thanks again!!

Thanks! I've only tried this once, but it didn't work - because I was doing it wrong! Can't wait to try it out. It is so helpful to watch you do it first....
I feel like MY voice sounds so much deeper on camera - yuck!

That helps me so much! My niece loves the 'twisty braids' but I can never do them just right! I think I'll go give it another try... :o)

I do mine a little different in that I twist both the pieces in the same direction and then twist them together in the opposite direction. Mine turn out just fine too.
Thanks for the tutorial!

Thanks for this! I have the twist braid down to a "T." Now all I have to do is keep practicing french braiding. Good thing my daughter let's me...most of the time. BTW, loved the "can't hear" comment from your daughter. Gotta love kids!

Hi - first-time commenter here :waves:

Thanks so much for this tutorial! I've struggled with twisty braids for so long! I always end up giving up and just doing regular braids. But now that I have some direction I think I can pull it off. THANKS!

P.S. You totally sound like you're from Utah *lol* I grew up in Utah. I moved to Oregon about 10 years ago and people kept telling me I had a little bit of an accent and I had NO IDEA what they were talking about - now I can hear it in other people *LOL*

Okay Hi! I love all your hairstyles, they are so gorgeous!!! I also just thought i would ask you to stay in this hair world, I don't like that everyone is leaving, and all this "High School" hair drama going around... I know you said nothing yet about leaving, but I really would love it if you stayed!! My cyber world is dying, all the sites i love are stopping, or thinking about stopping :( :( Everyone is acting like High school girls, and it has nothing to do with Jenn, i adore her, and i feel so bad, that people are causing her to leave...

Jessi, you are heaven sent! I am friends with Rachel and she told me about your blog you are amazing and I don't know what I would do without all of your awesome ideas. I think that you should publish a book, I would be the first one to but it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Thank you for the tutorial. I just got online hoping to find something new to do with my daughters hair as I am sick of piggy tails and found your BLOG it's awesome. I am going to put your link on my Blog and tell all of my friends. I hate hearing myself on video to but it really helped!

I couldn't get my fingers to do it the way you explained, but I tried twisting the way Plain and Precious described in her comment and IT WORKED! Maybe it's a left-brain, right-brain think...?
