Easy Twisty Bun


It's been a little while since I've done a hair tutorial. I snapped this just before I cut may hair a couple of weeks ago but will endeavour to do some mid-length hair tutorials in the coming weeks.  To do this style, you need 2 hair elastics and bobby pins. As usual, I find this works on day or 2 old hair. Freshly washed hair will be too flyaway.

STEP 1 Section your hair in half and tie each section into high pigtails toward the back of your head.

STEP 2 Separate a pigtail in two pieces. Twist each piece and then twist the two pieces together. Secure at the end with a bobby bin or elastic while you repeat on the other side.

STEP 3 Shows your two twisted ponytails before you twist them together

STEP 4 Remove your bobby pins or elastic from the end of each pigtail. Then wrap your pigtails together and secure with bobby pins. Once you have your hair pinned securely, use your fingers to slightly loosen the twists for a look that's a little more undone. Spray with hairspray to hold.

  5. I can't seem to get the twists to stay in place long enough to wrap them together before all the hair starts falling out. Very pretty idea, but didn't work for me.

    1. Try securing with a bobby pin or elastic. If you use the clear elasticated you could even keep them in. Hope that helps a little x

    2. You need to twist both halves in one direction (clock/anticlockwise) then wrap them around each other in the opposite direction and bang the elastic/pin on the end of that sucker and it should stay put for you. It's called a rope braid and there are heaps of tutorials on U-Tube for how to do it.

    3. This is not an "easy" twist. :( I tried it several times. You make it look so easy to do. :) Thank you for sharing.

  6. She fails to mention that it does not work if you any kind of layers in your hair.

    1. I have long layers and a fringe that's growing out. You can see my shorter layers in Step 1 pic. I guess it depends on how short your layers are?

    2. Get as much of your hair in the bun then pin the fallen shorter layers in.

  9. I have REALLY long hair and have seen hundreds of tutorials for these cute messy/braid buns and it just never seems to turn out, almost like I have too much hair. A lot of these seem great but I guess you can't have hair longer then your shoulder blades.... Is anyone else having this problem, because it's kind of infuriating!

    1. I have wavy hair that is down to the middle of my back and it worked fine for me today when I tried it out. You just have to wrap the hair around a little more than is shown and it should work out fine.

  10. I don't get how the whole twisting them together at the end works out. I know someone already asked and that there was a reply but it is still unclear and isn't working for me!

  11. I agree! I just tried this on my daughter and it was not working at all.

  12. The 4th step is NOT explained well at all. I tried it this morning and basically, I just twisted my two already-twisted pony-tails twice, and then pinned the right end to the left side of my head and vice versa. More details would be helpful.

  13. I used braids instead of twists, but if you want to twist them and have them not untwist you have to twist the two strands opposite the way you twist them around themselves... if that makes any lick of sense...

  14. Yes, more details I n the fourth step would be great. I just winged it but not the same. Would like to know where I'm going wrong to fix it.

  17. My step 3 is great..... step 4, not so much..... not sure how to twist or pin it down...

  18. I just did braids.
    It it super simple IF you already know how to do twists. The other ladies are right, you take two strands, twist them opposite, and wrap them around each other to make a twist. YouTube helps. I only know because my hairdresser showed me.

    Thanks for the idea!!!
