Oh man I am so excited to be back up and running! Hopefully someone will still stop by and read this blog every once and a while.
This hairdo is SUPER easy. It literally takes 10 minutes, start to finish. I think it has a simple elegance to it that makes it perfect for a special occasion, but honestly, its so quick and easy that I wear it to run errands!
Make sure your hair is detangled throughout.
I like to start with a side part, and because this is a pretty slicked back 'do make sure the part is nice and crisp
Okay, then section off the top half of you hair, like you are making a half ponytail:
Using a fine tooth, or rat tail comb, smooth this all out.
Give this hair a half twist. Make sure the twist is nice and tight to your head. Think of this like a French twist, only going downward instead of up.
Now you are going to bobby pin this twist to your head.I usually use about 5 pins to do this. To give the twist its shape I like to put the first pin in at the bottom of the twist like so:
|I know its hard to see, but the arrow gives you an idea of the direction I push the pin|
But, here is what you have now:
|If you pin well, this is a beautiful style all on its own!|
Make a ponytail about two finger spaces down from your twist (this is going to depend on the thickness of your hair, if its thinner go closer, thicker leaver more space)
Tuck the elastic you used under one of the loops that forms in your bun from the rope braid :
|the arrow shows where I am shoving the elastic, I use a couple bobby pins to secure it hidden away|
Accessorize if you want (I chose no) and you are done!
