Double Twisted Low Bun

Hello! I feel like it’s been forever since my last post. I’ve decided to try posting my tutorials on Mondays instead of Saturday mornings. I just needed a change of pace but I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I loved getting everything done and posted before the weekend and now I worry about it all weekend, eek! Is there a specific day that you check in for the new tutorial or are you used to seeing them on Saturdays? Let me know! I’m trying to figure out this new schedule (: Thanks for reading! xo, Missy

  • Step 3 / Now divide out a section of hair at the crown of the head, twist it together and pin it against the back of the head.
  • Step 4 / Take the hair underneath the pinned section and tie this into a low ponytail, only pulling the hair halfway through to form a loop.
