A Quick And Easy Twisty Hairdo

We haven't posted a hairstyle for girls with long hair since the Princess got hers cut. And I have to say, seeing these pictures makes me feel a little sad. This is one of the few long hairdos I had luckily saved to our SD card instead of on the computer when our computer crashed after THE haircut.

I actually made a video showing how to do this technique all the way down her head (kind of like a twisted looking french braid) and it turned out so beautiful! Unfortunately that video will be lost in cyberspace forever. :( If you want to do it, I bet you could figure it out though. Just keep going with this twisting technique all the way down. And if you do.... please, please post a picture to our facebook page so we can see it!

So anyway, enough rambling and back to the quick and easy twisty hair style.....
quick and easy twist hairstyleStart by making a part on the side (or middle if you prefer.) Then take a section on one side and start twisting... Twist it over to the other side of her head and secure it into place by taking a small chunk of hair where you want the twist to lie and add an elastic.
Next, take a section on the opposite side and twist.
As you're securing this one in place (the same way you did the first one) try to place it so that the twist is covering up the previous elastic.
Continue switching sides and twisting/securing as you go. This next picture is showing the 3rd twist I made.

We ended up doing 5 total twists this time. On the last elastic, I added a clip just for fun. Of course, you can do as many twists as you would like, as far down as you want to go.
The finished look from the side......
