If your hair is neither too long, nor too short, styling it can certainly be a challenge. But you can never go wrong with these passion twists. To achieve the wet look, first mix a little amount of hair styling gel with shine cream and apply it on your hair from the roots to the ends. If your hair is too dry, you can spritz it with some water so that the styling gel will hold. Then while the hair is still moist, weave out a loose version of spring twists with two strands and using light strokes. Use setting spray to keep the twists locked in place.
