Video Alert! How To: Twist & Stretch with Hair Icon Vivienne Mackinder

In this video, industry legend Vivienne Mackinder teaches us the stretch and twist technique with an iron which can be used on many hair from beach waves to something more stretched out and polished.

She shows us how to make the initial waves with her hands and gently pressing the iron in the wave and then using the clip on the iron and then twisting the iron to create a curl. When done comb out the hair. If you want to create an undone effect twist the iron in the opposite way. Be sure to razor cut the ends when the hair is wet to create a whispy effect at the ends.

Mackinder’s collections and imagery remain sought-after from editors both domestically and internationally. She has been a frequent contributor to the runway, working as key hairdresser behind the scenes with Vivienne Westwood, VH1, Vogue Fashion awards, showcasing the Oscar winning awards of Edith Head during Paris, London and New York fashion weeks
