Twisted Bun Updo

For the past two days, I've been stumped on what to do on N's hair. I washed, moisturized, and banded, her hair over the weekend. Since, I had a bloggers version of a writers block lol. I decided to just grab a comb and begin freestyle parting. Surprisingly, it came out pretty nice.

I started by dividing her hair in half (ear to ear.) 
I began freestyle cornbraiding, on the back of the hair. I made some swirly kind of parts, and straight. With freestyle parting anything goes, be creative with your parting and just let it flow. 

Once, I reached the hair off of the scalp. I began to form a two strand twist. I twirled my finger and used holding gel to prevent the twists from unraveling.

Once the back was complete, it was time to work on the front. Again, I did not create a clear design. I created random braids, and two strand twist the ends. Remember, the key is focus on your parting. The neater the part, the more nicer the style will become. 

Finally, I placed all of the twists in a ponytail holder. I wrapped the twists to form a bun, and tucked the ends so that it won't show. I used 3 hair ties to secure the bun. 
Tip: You can also use a sock bun or filler to help the bun to look more fuller/thicker.

Simple & Stylish!

 I added the tiara, to show that this style is perfect not only for bigger girls/adults, but even the little ones.
I believe the tiara came with a barbie we brought awhile ago (ekk Im not sure lol )

                         Our dog wanted to get some camera love too.

This looks really cute. It's a good style to use to protect the ends of the hair which also helps to retain length.

I love this and also the newest 'do you posted on fb!!! Can you give more detailed instructions about how you formed and secured the bun? Looks like you wrapped some twists side to side, then from up to down, then some around the whole bun???? Did you use bobby pins? Thank you for this site! I love it!

Thanks! I placed the twists into a ponytail. Then I take a few twists and starting wrapping them up/down, left/right, and I did this numerous times. I used black hair ties (about 3) to secure the bun. Then I tucked the ends of the twists, inside the bun, to hide it. I did not use bobby pins, but Im sure that would be fine to use. I hope this helps dear!
