Twisted Sister Side Bun

Step 1: Prep Your Hair

  • Take horizontal sections and spray a minimum of 6-8" away with Redken quick tease 15 backcombing finishing spray to protect the hair from heat and for maximum iron results
  • Use the Sam Villa Textur® Texturizing Iron tapping the plates down the length to texturize the entire head of hair
  • After you have texturized the hair, brush through thoroughly with the Sam Villa Styling Brush to smooth the hair
  • Once this is completed you will be able to create amazing looks for a minimum of 4 days!


  • Purchase a quality shower cap - doing so will allow you the experience of a full shower and keeps your texture set intact
  • Use a dry shampoo such as Redken Powder Refresh 01 to deodorize your hair and remove excess oils
  • You can create amazing new looks every day with three times the volume and minimal styling time -- The Sam Villa Textur® Texturizing Iron is a must have if you are a hair fashionista (or even if you are hair-imparied)

Step 2: Create Your Part

  • Set in your part where you naturally wear it
  • Use a Sam Villa Detangling Comb to separate the sides by combing hair off the face and letting it naturally split - this approach will give you a straight part every time

Step 3:  Twist & Secure First Section

  • Begin the design on your left side
  • Start with a small section twisting up and away from your face, only adding sections from the front side of the twist – this will keep the front looking controlled
  • Keep adding more sections until you arrive behind your ear on the opposite side of the head
  • Keep twisting the length until it buckles into a bun at your nape
  • Secure the section with a large hairpin


  • When securing a shape with a hairpin begin by placing the pin thru the shape in the opposite direction, then secure it back toward the desired shape using a hook movement
  • This will allow for maximum tension and security

Step 4: Adding Second Section To Your Bun

  • Take your front section on the opposite side and gently fold it towards the back bun
  • Pin the section into the bun area
  • Twist the remaining ends and tuck into the back of the bun – secure with a medium hairpin
