Updo with Old Twist Out

 Sometimes life can get a bit hard to manage. Between work, school and my family, I often find it challenging to invest time on styling my hair. 

However, often time, there are ways to add dimension to your hair by simply switching it up or being creative.

Earlier this week I did a twist out with my hair. I was then able to change that twist out by adding a little panache and turning it into an up do.
In a few simple and easy steps, I will show you how I was able to attain that style. 

Here’s what you will need:

You'll need bobby pins and elastic

Here’s how it was done:

  • Leave some hair in front and gather your hair as high up as possible as if you were trying to create a bun. 
    You can pull a little on the twist to get as much length as you can.
  • Take your elastic then put your hair through it and let it fall however it falls. 
  • For the front section fix it however suits your face.

Btw you can wear your hair like that for a few days if you take the time to wrap your hair with your scarf at night.
Simply remove the elastic, leaving your hair in the same shape.
And if the front area doesn't look as nice any more just re-twist that part.

And voilà!!  


very pretty

Mendjaly, I also have natural hair and was instantly drawn to this pin right away! Then I had to take a second look at you! I’m originally from Montreal but now live in Toronto. Is it possible that I actually know you? I have a brother named Basil if that helps! Gorgeous hair by the way! Hoping mine will get to that length!

i still kind of new to the nature hair style, and it’s only been about 2 years. I get a little help or tips from time to time.
And I feel the same way you feel about having a new style.
With the style you did, did you put any type of gel on your hair.

Sign, still trying
