Half Up Style Instructions: Green Lace Top / Gold Leaf Chain

  • Step 3 / Finger comb the hair at the top of the head straight back away from the face.
  • Step 4 / Divide off a thin section of hair at the top of the head bringing it back towards the back of the head.
  • Step 5 / Gently twist the section together so the left side lays over the right.
  • Step 6 /Pin the section against the head with bobby pins, sliding them underneath the section.
  • Step 7 / Divide off a small horizontal section of hair on the left side, directly underneath the pinned section.
  • Step 8 / Twist the section upwards laying it underneath the top pinned section.
  • Step 9 / Pin the twist against the head on the right side and gently loosen the bottom edge by pulling small pieces of hair downwards.
  • step 10 / Divide off a similar sized section on the right side of the head, twisting it upwards and pinning it underneath the previous twist, sliding the pin in horizontally on the left side so it is hidden underneath.
  • Step 11 / Gently loosen the twist by pulling on the bottom edge, while holding the pinned end with the opposite hand.
  • Step 12 / Spray the style with hairspray to set it and add a pretty accessory if so desired.

    So I tried to watch your video and it’s saying that your video is restricted and I need permission to watch it….I am an adult but must have those settings set on my computer for my kids safety. Anything in your video that should be restricted? Just thought you would like to know. Love all your hair tutorials.

      Hi Joy, I’m not sure what the problem would be, there’s nothing restricted about the video. I’ll look into it and see what I can find out.
