Need a breather from braids? Or want a look that's just as cool, but takes about, oh, half the styling time? Answer: Yes. Yes, you do.
Well, ladies and gents, feast your eyes on Rihanna's twist on the ever-stylish side-braid — it's a side-twist!
Instead of sectioning off her hair three ways, the singer went old-school — perhaps inspired by her DKNY sweatsuit circa 1991? — with the side-braid's younger sis, an easier-to-DIY two-piece twist. It's kiiiind of like the look we used to rock back on the playground (nostalgia points!) but the sharp side part and twisted bangs make it more office than classroom, don't you think?
A tale of caution, if you learned anything from the jungle gym, you'll know that twists don't hold all that well. (Especially after lots of boy-chasing, er, errand running.) So if you're planning to steal RiRi's grown-up version, give your locks extra grip with a texture booster beforehand. We're huge fans of Oribe's brand-new Dry Texturizing Spray ($39 at Oribe.com). It smells ah-mazing!
