Twisted Bun Tutorial

Sunday, March 08, 2015

Hello everyone! Today, I thought I'd bring you a new hairstyle tutorial, as it seems to have been a long time since I last posted one. I love experimenting with new hairstyles and these posts are often greatly received on my blog. The twisted bun, which I'll be showing you, is easy to do, doesn't take a lot of time and looks really pretty when completed. I hope you like it!

After brushing through my hair, I created a part line from ear to ear, so that a small section of hair at the front of my head was separated from the rest. I brushed back the majority of my hair into a ponytail at the nape of my neck, using a comb to smooth it down, making it look sleek and neater. I then took this hair and started twisting it, wrapping it around itself to form a bun. I secured this in place with some bobby pins, but you don't need a lot as this hairstyle looks nice if it's looser.

With the front section of my hair, I formed a side parting. Taking the left part of the hair, I twisted it away from my face, picking up all of the hair from that side as I went along. I wrapped the hair around the bun in a clockwise direction, securing the ends with a few bobby pins so it blended in. I then repeated this on the other side of the front section, this time wrapping the twist around the bun in the opposite direction, so that they cross over each other. I'd recommend keeping the twists as tight as possible, as they will loosen up as you're styling the hair.

I finished this hairstyle by making sure everything was secure and looked how I wanted it to. Now would be the ideal time to add some hairspray if you would like to ensure that the style will stay in place throughout the day. I also used a pearl bobble to embellish this style, placing it around the bun. I really like this as it holds the hair in place and hides any bobby pins that are visible.

Overall, I really like this hairstyle and think that it is a gorgeous variation of a basic bun. It is quite a versatile style, meaning it could easily be adapted to someone who has shorter or curly hair. I also think this hairstyle could serve a variety of purposes, looking great for everyday wear or being practical for dance and sports. It only takes a few minutes to complete and is a lovely way of styling your hair without too much effort.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. I'll definitely be putting up more hairstyle tutorials in the future, so make sure you keep your eyes pealed and look out for them. Thank you for reading and please let me know down in the comments if you like this hairstyle!
