Funky Twist Fan Hairstyle

This fun and funky updo hairstyle is one of our new favs because it brings lots of attention and compliments, but takes less than 5 minutes to complete (for real.) We're going to be loving 5 minute hairstyles at our house when school starts here in a couple of weeks. Gah, can't believe it's back to school time already! Can you?
twist hairstyle Did I mention this hairstyle is super easy too? Not much to it at all! Just make a standard ponytail then take small sections of hair in the ponytail and twist them up. Secure the twisted pieces, leaving out some ends at the top with a clip. The clips we use are "Goody" brand and hold really well. They even held up to the monkey bars, we tested them!! We've tried using some other "cheap clips" and trust me, it's worth spending a little extra to get some that are actually going to stay in.
So anyway, no rhyme or reason to this. Place the twists wherever you would like until all of the hair in the ponytail is used up. Shoulder length hair is perfect for this style. If you're working with longer hair, you can twist the pieces up more until they start to coil to shorten them up a bit. (Similar to the twists we used in this flower girl hairstyle.) You could also do a variation of this style with a half pony instead, or leave some hair down in the ponytail if you wanted to.
hairstyle with twistsAfter you get all the hair twisted, you can spike the ends out with some hairspray or gel. It really helps if you're working with wet hair.

hairstyles for girls On our facebook page I recently asked which type of hair tutorials you all prefer (video or photo) and the response was mixed. So, I guess we'll just keep doing what we're doing and throw in a little of both (depending on the style.)

Since this was a quick hairdo, we had time to make a video tutorial for all of you youtube lovers as well. Yay! :)
