Here we are in step number two of the Havana twist hairstyle in this that I will show you in detail step-by-step how to achieve Havana twists on your hair by doing the invisible roots method so first before you begin twisting your hair you are going to take your comb and section a part of your real hair for your twist then you are going to take your extension hair and prepare it for your Havana twist style and then lastly I will show you how to do Havana twist with the invisible roots met before you begin twisting your hair for your Havana twist you want to make sure you part a pretty big amount of hair on your head so with your comb you are going to be using the tail end of your comb to part a square section of your hair the reason why you want to make sure to exaggerate the size you are going to do is because Havana twist by nature are pretty big twist but also its ups your preference so if you want the look of a smaller Havana twist just part of a smaller size so now that is going to take the tail end of my comb and this is a rat tail and then I am going to part a square here on the right side of my head so now that you have parted your section that you will be working on want to take some duckbill clips and once your hair and the surrounding areas to keep your hair sectioned so now that your hair is sectioned you want to take your water spray bottle and mist your hair just a little bit and then you can add a little bit of gel onto the ends as you tame so now that your hair has been the detangled and sectioned I will show you how to prepare your Havana twist hair for your hair now in my hand hair I have a package of Marley twisting or Marley braiding hair you could also use Havana hair as well there very similar almost identical book for this Havana was look will be using this Marley twisting hair and for the specific part I want to show you how to prepare your hair for your twist now when doing your twist with the size that I have on my head it's perfect to use eight individual pieces of the Marley extension so when you open up your package of Marley hair it's already pre-sectioned there's individual twist or locks of hair that are already separated within itself so what you want to do is grab 8 pieces 12345678 and you are going to use this for your twists now the way to make sure that the ends taper off just a little bit to give you the natural look e are are going to stagger each individual twist as we are preparing the hair so as you can see the ends look pretty even there's a few that are little bit shorter than the others but they're pretty even so first what you want to do is make them all even before you begin so I am going to pull each lock and I'm going to make all the ends even the reason why you want to do this first is so you could purposefully make sure that the ends are staggering in the way you would like so now here we are all the ends afe perfectly if you want to do your Havana twist with the link that it is at each bottom of the lock then your answer will look really blunt for a taper off really quickly and look unnatural so what you want to do is not take one twist to put it in your other hand just like that so when you grab your second twist what you want to do is adjust the hand that has more of the locks a little bit downward so that is longer than your other hand so when I put this twist back up to it you can see that this twist in my right hand is a little bit shorter than the rest of the twist or locks in my other hand so now that we have two different lengths you're going to grab one from this hand him will be directly over and as you can see the two pieces are staggered so now to continue to stagger our pieces you going to grab this hand of hair and adjusted down just a little bit just so it's a little longer than the other hand and then you going to grab a lock and shift it right to your other hand so now we have three pieces in are all starting to stagger so you just going to do the same thing until all eight pieces are transferred to your next hand so now here we have our 8 twists the ends aren’t so even and they are starting to stagger so if you do want to adjust just a little bit more to make them extreme you can you just want to eyeball which ones need to be a little longer or shorter and you can pull one just a little bit down to your liking so now once your hair has been set we are going to begin twisting by achieving that invisible roots method for the Havana twist so now that your extension hair has been paired right going to begin to do the invisible roots method for the Havana twist hairstyle so with your section of hair that you already have you going to divided into two parts the way down want to section is hair than want to take my comb and I want to part my hair directly this way a straight line across you can also even separate it with your hands or you can even separate and formed two triangles that's the way you want to part your hair to really help you achieve that invisible roots look so now I am just going to reach my table and I'm going to grab my comb and I want to take the end of my comb and I'm going to use that to part my section of hair so now that I have two sections here I will focus on one section at a time some will start this bottom section and we're going to twist in this section of hair with our extensions and they were going to twist the section upward so now is going to take my hair from my lap and I'm going to locate the middle of this section which is right here so we both my hands around the hair I have this middle area here and I'm want to place the back of this extension hair right against my scalp just go ahead and place just like that firmly against my scalp now when you want to do is focus on the bottom and so you want to take this extension hair and just toss it right over your head so that way doesn't get tangled now you want to take your left hand and you going to leave it flat against that extension hair so it doesn't move and then you are going to take this hair in your right hand and grab your real hair as well and you are going to twist your section of hair so the way that I want to twist this hair is I'm going to twist a counterclockwise so you have to work with both of your hands and continue to twist all the way down to the bottom making sure that you can reach near the bottom of your hair so that's about as far as I am going to twist down and then you want to twist other section and you have to twist in the same direction this section was twisted counterclockwise and so will this section twist counterclockwise so you are going to release the hair from over your head and you're going to grab your real hair and put your extension here top of it as well and you're also going to twist that counterclockwise so this could be a little bit tricky if you are not used to doing this method but you have to work with both of your hands to help you twist your hair so now at this moment what you want to do is take that second section you twisted and put it over the first section and you want to continue to twist counterclockwise make sure that the hair doesn't buckle and that your real hair doesn't stick out of the twists so you are going to twist that again a little bit counterclockwise and wrap it around the gel is really helpful at this point with your hair because as you reached the near the ends of your hair is very helpful to put gel on your hands so that your hair doesn't stick out of the but my hair has blended perfectly so all I got to do is discontinue twisting it section counterclockwise and then switching hands and then twisting the section counterclockwise switch hands twist this section counterclockwise switch hands twist clockwise so if you're very easy with doing this method you could probably go pretty fast but to make sure you have a consistent look down your twist take your time you don't want to rush this process because the twist need to look very neat because we tapered the ends of our extension locks for the Marley twists hair sometimes you may begin to notice that one and may look a little bit longer than the other and they may not and at the same time so if that's ever a problem all you have to do is borrow some hair as we can see here it all the ends look like they could pretty much go consistently so we will just continue twisting to the bottom because you are using Marley twisting hair you will notice that the hair itself has some texture to it because number one is because the nature of this hair sticking to a number two it's because we didn't divide the locks and further so you will notice that there's some texture going on some added texture from the extension hair as well as your hair as well so once you have twisted all the way to the bottom of the you can go any further you want to just barely snip the very ends of his twist and also want to bring your scissors up and snipped any additional pieces that may be sticking out of your Havana twist so I am going to go to the table and grab my scissors going to come back to my twist it is going to barely snip that little bit of the end you just going to go to was able to snipped any extra pieces of hair that are sticking out especially the section hair sometimes this may be a problem for you or just may occasionally stick out because you staggered the lengths of your extension hair so you are just going to grab your scissors and you cut that part just like that very easy and simple and then just skim all the way up your individual twist and just cut off any pieces if necessary so that is how you do the invisible roots method for your Havana twist so now for the second want to show you a little bit more of a fast tempo how you're going to do your twist you want to make sure to do the invisible root method as you are twisting your way down now that I have already shown you have to twist your first Havana twist I will show you a second time again but I'm going to go a little bit so I have already sectioned my hair detangled my hair and divided my hair into two equal parts so now want to take my extensions that I have here and I have already staggered the lengths and prepared them for this second twist so now you are going to locate the middle of your extensions and you are going to have both hands on the hair and you are going to place that middle area right against your scalp so I am going to go up and I'm going to move this top is of your other way to expose my scalp and I'm going to place the extensions right on that area for now take the hair you have up top piece of hair out of the way to expose my scalp and I am going to place those extensions right on that area so now take the hair you have up top and just throw it right over your head to keep it out of the way so that it doesn't get tangled as you are twisting use your hand to lay the hair flat and gather your real hair in your extension hair altogether and twist that hair counterclockwise so you will be twisting this hair inward toward your face so I like to twist maybe about 5 to 10 times and I like to go almost to the ends of my hair just enough so that I have enough hair to overlap each other as I'm forming a twist so now you going to grab the top piece and you are going to grab all of your real hair in your section and you are going to twist that hair counterclockwise as well so now after you have twisted down probably about 5 to 10 times you are going to take the top piece put it over that bottom piece they started with switch hands and twist counterclockwise still about 3 to 4 times down you are going to switch hands again take that top easier put over the bottom piece and continue to twist about 2 to 3 times or three or four times take the top piece switch hands by putting over the bottom piece and then twist just a little bit make sure that as you are twisting the twist itself isnt informing buckles or tightening up as you go down you want a very smooth and consistent twist as you are twisting your hair also if you noticed once again that if any of your real hair sticking out you want to go back just a little bit apply little bit of gel to the end of your real hair and then you want to continue to twist all the way down its very important that as you twist each section each section itself twist counterclockwise switch hands you twist counterclockwise that will make sure that your twist will not unravel as you are twisting towards the bottom so once the twist is let go it will not unravel will be in place so now as I am nearing the ends I can tell that this site here's a little bit thicker and this end is a little bit thinner and also that is my not equal out so what I am going to do at this point you want to hold very firm is one hand take a twist transferred to the other side hold that very tightly and continue to twist counterclockwise switch hands make sure his gather varies and twist counterclockwise and now that you're looking at the twist you can never tell that I had borrowed one of the pieces of hair from the other side for this Havana twist so now as you're nearing the end of your twist as you notice one side looks a little bit longer than the other side you are just going to pinch a little bit of hair off can divide that just a little bit see their and then continue twisting really tight so now once you've twist as far down as you can divide that just a little bit and finish twisting very tightly so now once you have twisted as far down as you can go you are going to take your scissors and snip the very little wispy end off here at the bottom with your scissors I am going to take my scissors off my table once again and I am going to snip the ends and then you are going to use your scissors and you just going to skim up alongside the twist where any hairs might stick out you want to be very careful to make sure you don't actually cut the twist itself and your second twist has been achieved in that you can see the way the twist look as if is coming from you scalp in this step of the Havana twist hairstyle I showed you how to incorporate the invisible roots method to give you that flawless look to your hair so before you actually begin twisting your hair you took your comb and you parted out a section of your real hair that you would be working on after you be detangled and divided it into two equal parts you then took 8 individual pieces of your Marley hair and staggered them in length to give you a very subtle natural tapered look to the ends of your twists once you locate the middle area of your extensions place that directly against her scalp and then you concentrate on the bottom part of your real hair by gathering it with your extension hair and twisting it counterclockwise once you've gone down and twisting about 5 to 10 times you take the top section with your area of hair at the top your head and then you twisted that area counterclockwise as well next you take the top piece but it over the bottom piece and continue to twist counterclockwise as you reach the very ends and that is how you perform your invisible roots method to give you your Havana twists so now that you understand the technique you want to continue to do a Havana twist throughout your entire head on so you're
