Abstract
The research work presents the design/ concept, construction and testing of a rechargeable hair twisting device. The twisting device was designed and constructed scrap components obtained from existing devices such as rechargeable torch light, video tape re-winder. The constructed hair twisting device is portable and has features that enable it to twist up to four strands of hair at a time. It weighs 234.3 g which means it is portable and light and will not be stressful to the end user when used for prolong operation. It is relatively faster (53.58 57.97% times) than manually plaited hair, but organoleptic assessment indicates that it is not as appealing compared to manually plaited hair. However, there is still room for improvement in the area of look and feel (beauty) which is the main reason why women takes time out to plait.

Key words: Braiding, hair, hairstyles, plaiting, twisting.
