Summer Braided Twist

pin

I LOVE this hairstyle.  I’ve had a hard time finding cute ponytails that I like — I’m just not use to the short ends.  I’m sure they will eventually grow on me but for now I find myself avoiding any style where my short ends hang.  This style keeps my hair back like a ponytail would, but I love the ends coming out of the twist.  It just seems fresh and fun instead of annoying and short!

If you have longer hair it’d be gorgeous to leave the ends falling down your neck or if you want more of a twist, check out this tutorial here.

Step by Step Instructions::

1 | Section off some hair from the middle of your part to the end of it and braid it into a dutch french braid.  Tie it off with a clear elastic and pancake
2 | Repeat step 1 with the remaining hair beneath the first braid
3 | Take the rest of the hair and twist it over the two braids.  Secure with bobby pin(s)
4 | Undo clear elastics from braids
5 | Twist the remaining ends counter clockwise and place it near the seam of the first twist.  Secure with bobby pins.

  1. I want to subscribe but I’ve put my email once each day for two days and I still haven’t gotten the email in my inbox. It’s not even in my spam.

    1. I just checked it and it says you’re subscribed. That is super weird! Did it maybe go into the promotions tab at the top? You know how in google they’ve started separating your mail for you?

  2. I love your shorter do! When you had it cut, what did you tell your stylist? Did you bring in a photo? I’ve been trying to get my stylist to cut my hair like yours for almost a year and it never looks right. :/
    Also, what do you mean by “pancake”?

    Thanks! 🙂

    1. If you find me on instagram @twistmepretty and scroll down to a short brown haired photo — that’s the one I gave my stylist! I think a lot of it has to do with the way you style it too! I wrap it around a wand and then straighten the ends!

    2. oh, and pancake means to spread apart the braid to make it look fuller! You’re flattening the braid like a pancake!

  3. I really love your videos there are so creative =]. Helps me with a crisis when I have to style my hair, so thank you =].

  4. I just love your hairstyles!! I have medium length hair and like your breezy braids!
    Thanks zo much.
    Lots of love from Belgium
