Did any of you have a go-to hairstyle growing up? In almost every childhood photo of me, my hair is done one of two ways: either in a fountain-like ponytail on the very top of my head, or a neatly pulled back half-ponytail (thanks, mom!) Nowadays I’m not the biggest fan of the half-up-half-down look, but I do still love to have my hair out of my face… especially as a means of damage control while growing out my bangs. In today’s installment of Pretty Simple, Martha Lynn shares a quick and subtle way to keep hair out of the way, while looking neat and romantic. Keep reading for the piece-of-cake instructions to achieving this waterfall twist updo…
- On one side of your part, separate two small sections at the front of your head.
- Twist the front section over the back section.
- Drop the front section behind the back section. The piece you’re still holding is your new “front section”
- Moving toward the back of your head, pick up a third section. This is your new “back section.” Repeat steps 1-3 by twisting the front section over the back section, and dropping it behind.
- Continue moving back and secure with a bobby pin. Repeat on the other side of your head.
- Loosely tie ends in a knot and secure with bobby pins. Spray all over.
