Elsa Hairstyle Tutorial Inspired By Disney (Frozen)

Since posting Anna's hairstyle (from the movie Frozen) last week, we have had over 100 requests to do a tutorial for Elsa's coronation hairstyle!  We weren't really planning on doing any other "Frozen hairstyles," but how could we ignore that?  ;) 

Besides, with the holidays right around the corner, I think this would make a lovely hairstyle for Christmas, New Years Eve, or any other holiday occasion that may be celebrated this time of year.  This style is simple, elegant, and classic... don't you think?

Keep in mind, there are several different ways you could go about creating this updo.  We first tried placing a headband over her head and tucked the hair around it to form the twist.  Then we tried making a "French twist" along the side... which actually turned out very true to the original style, but was quite difficult and required tons of bobby pins. We also tried a French fishtail, which looked cool, but not quite right!  We finally settled on this simple twist (shown in our tutorial below) because we wanted something that was quick and easy to create for everyone.  Although it did not turn out exactly like the original style, I think it is close enough.  If you have blonde hair and bangs as well as a tiara or crown, you could really make this look authentic!
