Twist And Loop Hairdo

Start with 4 low ponies. Make 2 twist braids in each one. (Take 2 strands, twist them in the same direction, then twist them together in the opposite direction.) Add elastics to the ends, leaving 1-2 inches at the bottom for spiking later.

Bring the braids up and tuck the ends into the elastics at the tops of the braids. Starting on the left, I pulled both braids in section 1 over to section 2. One braid from section 2 went to section 1. The other braid in section 2 went to section 3. One braid in section 3 went to section 2. The other went to section 4. Both braids in section 4 went to section 3. (It's really not so complicated, I'm just a bad explainer.)
Now you can add some bows/flowers/ribbons and fix the ends with a curling/flattening iron.

If you end up trying this one, I have another style that goes with it (this is a 2 for 1!) I've got a busy weekend ahead of me, so I'll probably be posting it Monday.

  1. Oh wow, another cute one. I don't think my dd's hair is long enough though. I'll try.

  2. Another Q, don't think I'm weird I know you don't know me, but where did your family blog go? I enjoy following it, I went to check it this morning and it was gone.

  3. Cindy,
    You can email me if you would like.

  4. I have a request. Could you possibly make a video showing how to do the twist braids? I have tried and tried but I can't get mine to look like yours. They always come undone as well. On this post those are perfect. They almost look fake, like rope or something. I'm so impressed!

  5. LOL I even like how just the 4 twisted ponies look! Very nice!!


  6. Amy, I'll get to work on that. I've never posted a video before, hopefully I can figure it out!
