How to Use the Quick Twist® from Conair® for Trendy Hairstyles

The Quick Twist from Conair is an innovative hairstyling tool that helps you create twisty braids easily and quickly. Quick Twist braids can hang freely or be combined with an assortment of colorful accessories into a variety of fun and unique styles. Read on to find out how it works and check out our photo gallery here and on Instagram to get some ideas for the kinds of exciting styles you can create with a Quick Twist available only from Conair.

Here’s How It Works

  • CLASP IT!  Take a 2-inch section of hair and divide it in half – use less hair if you would like a tighter twisty braid. Comb through the hair strand to remove any tangles or flyaways. Push up the button on the left side of the Quick Twist to raise the hair clasp. Insert the end of the hair strand under the clasp as shown in the photo and release the button. Repeat on the right side of the Quick Twist with the other separated hair strand, or use a color fabric-accessory cord instead of the hair strand as shown in Step 3.

  • TWIST IT!  Pull the hair strands taut, away from the head. Slide the On button up and watch as the hair twists start to form. Make sure to hold your hair taut and let the twists go all the way up to your hair roots. If you think your hair is becoming tangled or stuck, turn off the styler and push the buttons to release hair from the clasps. Brush the hair free of tangles and try again.

  • SPIN IT and CLIP IT!  Hand-rotate the styler counter-clockwise (in the direction of the arrow on the styler) so your 2 twists cross over each other creating a braid. You can make the twisty braid loose or tight – it's up to you! Once braided, pinch the end of the braid, remove the ends from the hair clasps and secure it with a mini Scünci® anti-slip elastic or with a hair clip that comes in the styler package.

  • FAQs


    What is the recommended age for using Quick Twist?

    An adult should be nearby to supervise kids under 12, and we suggest no one under 6 use Quick Twist, as the accessories can present a choking hazard.


    How do I prep my hair before using the Quick Twist?

    Wet or dry, make sure hair is combed through and free of tangles.


    How much hair can the hair clasps hold?

    The hair clasps hold about a 1- to ¼-inch strand of hair. The smaller the section, the tighter the twisty braid. 


    When inserting my hair, do I start at the top, in the middle or at the bottom of the hair strand?

    Place the bottom of the section of hair into the Quick Twist hair clasp to begin.


    Do I have to turn the Quick Twist in the direction the arrow indicates to twist the 2 strands together?

    Yes. If you turn it in the other direction, you will untwist the strands!

    Absolutely! Quick Twist creates the perfect twisty braid on any hair type or texture, one after another.
