Today’s tutorial is three, easy hairstyles that include a half up, low bun, and ponytail. The concept behind these styles is one of my favorites because the first one leads into the second and third styles. Basically you have to do the first one to do the second and third so it’s perfect for whatever you’ve got planned for that day. Quick transition from down to up. What do you think?!

3 Twisted Hairstyles Supplies:

3 Twisted Hairstyles Instructions:

  • Step 1 / For the half updo, begin by dividing out a section of hair at the crown. Twist the section slightly and pin it at the back of the head.
  • Step 2 / Now pick up a large section of hair above the right ear, twist this upwards, laying it underneath the crown section and pin it on the left side.
  • Step 3 / Then go back over the twist, pulling on the edges to make it fuller.
  • Step 4 / Then repeat those steps, picking up a large section above the left ear and twisting the hair together.
  • Step 5 / Wrap the twist underneath the right one and pin it on the right side.
  • Step 6 / Then go back over the twist, pulling on the edges to make it fuller.
  • Step 7 / Set the style with a medium-hold hairspray.

Updo Instructions:

  • Step 1 / For the low bun, begin where the previous hairstyle stopped and gather the rest of the hair at the nape of the neck.
  • Step 2 / Wrap a hair band over the hair but on the last wrap only pull the hair part way through to create a loop.
  • Step 3 / Take the ends sticking out and divide them into two sections, twisting them together on the left and right side of the bun.
  • Step 4 / Bring the sections over the top of the bun, wrapping them around the bun and then pin down the twists with bobby pins.
  • Step 5 / Set the style with a firm-hold hairspray

Ponytail Instructions

  • Step 1 / For the ponytail, begin where the half updo finished.
  • Step 2 / Gather the rest of the hair placing it underneath the twists and tie it into a ponytail with a hair band.
  • Step 3 / Divide out a small piece of hair, wrap it around the hair band and pin it underneath with a bobby pin.
  • Step 4 / Set the style with a medium-hold hairspray.

If you’re a fan of the woven braid, then you’re going to love today’s tutorial. I used the same technique for this half updo and it makes creating these braids so much easier to do than other tutorials I’ve seen.

I’ve always been too afraid to try out any braid that has more than 4 sections but with this technique you’re basically focusing on three strands at the beginning instead of 5 so it’s a lot easier to see and control what you’re doing.

I hope the tutorial is easy to understand and that you give it a try. As always, be sure to let me know what you think! xo, Missy

Half Up Five Strand Braids Supplies:

Half Up Five Strand Braids Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair where you normally prefer. I put mine slightly off center.
  • Step 2 / Pick up a section on the left side of the part and divide it into three pieces for the braid.
  • Step 3 / Cross the right strand over the middle, then cross the left strand over the middle.
  • Step 4 / Now take the right strand and lay this out of the way.
  • Step 5 / Then pick up a new section on the right side, cross it over the middle strand in its place.
  • Step 6 / Drop down the left strand, pick up a new section behind it, and cross it over the middle strand.
  • Step 7 / Now drop the right strand, let down the piece set aside and bring it under the right strand, crossing it over the middle strand.
  • Step 8 / Then pick up a new piece, crossing it into the middle strand as well.
  • Step 9 / Now drop down the left strand, take the previous strand that was left out, cross it under the left strand, and then over the middle strand into the braid.
  • Step 10 / Then pick up a new section of hair and cross it over to the middle strand.
  • Step 11 / Repeat those steps continuing the braid until hair is brought in above the left ear.
  • Step 12 / Then stop adding new sections into the braid and continue braiding the section down to the ends in a five strand braid.
  • Step 13 / Now slide a bobby pin over the end of the braid and then go back over the braid pulling on the edges to make it fuller.
  • Step 14 / Repeat those same steps and create a second 5 strand braid with the hair on the right side.
  • Step 15 / Now bring the right braid around the back of the head and pin it in place with bobby pins.
  • Step 16 / Then wrap the left braid under the right braid pinning it at the back of the head.
  • Step 17 / Then set everything in place with hairspray.

Today’s tutorial is a style I’ve worn before but never considered filming a tutorial for it. It’s an easy way to dress up a simple ponytail and works great as a heatless hairstyle too.

Hello! Thank you so much for being here! Today’s tutorial is an old favorite that somehow never got a video tutorial. If you struggle with braids then this is definitely a style you need to try. It looks like a braid but, surprise! it’s not and is done with elastic bands instead. It looks super cool and I guarantee you’ll get a lot of compliments whenever you wear this hairstyle. Let me know what you think and be sure to give it a shot!

Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy
