Sidewinder Soft Coil Instructions
Start with at least pencil thick braid or twisted section of hair. Take top/bottom of coil and place top/bottom of coil around braid/twisted section and wrap around hair.
Depending on the size of the coil (mini, small, large), you will want to make a larger braid or section of hair to place the coil around.

I like to color coordinate my daughter’s outfits. How hard is it to switch out the colors?
Sidewinders are so versatile, you can change them out every day to match your daughter’s outfits. Unlike beads where you are stuck with one color for the entire time your daughter’s hair is styled with them, with Sidewinders, you simply leave in the secured bead at the end of the hair, but unwind the Sidewinder out of the hair and replace it with another color.
Can I mix two colors on one Sidewinder Hairholder?
Please do. You’ll love the results!!!!!
When I purchase a Sidewinder, what is considered one piece?
One Sidewinder consists of two pieces intertwined together.
Are there hairstyles where only 1/2 of a Sidewinder can be used?
Can Sidewinders be placed in the hair without use of a clear elastic band or bead at the end?
It depends on the hairstyle and the thickness of your hair. For instance, in the barrette style seen below, you may or may not need a clear elastic band at the end. The thicker the hair, the less likely you will need to place a band at the end.
When using the 2″ Sidewinders as a hair beads alternative at the end of braids and twists, be sure to secure the holder with one bead.
Should I place two 1″ holders at the end of a braid or use one 2″ Sidewinder?
You should always use the 2″ Sidewinder rather than stacking two 1″ Sidewinders for two reasons: One, it looks much better and, two, stacking two 1″ Sidewinders tends to make the holders fall out of the hair.
Is the inside diameter of a Sidewinder the same as beads?
