Hair style: twisties


Twisties (or side buns) have been my super-quick hairdo solution for my girls since Sara started to have hair long enough to work with (and that took years). They’re just so quick and easy and always look cute, even when they’re completely crooked (I actually like them better that way).

twisties_3 twisties_4 They’re so quick and easy to make. Just brush and divide the hair roughly in two (I personally don’t like the parting to be too straight). Then, start twisting the hair until it automatically starts to roll up.

These are darling! But I am thinking perhaps best suited for girls with thinner hair? My daughter has a head of thick thick hair (where it came from I have no idea) and on her, this would look more like Princess Leia in Return of the Jedi…..

I think it works well on all hair Christy — actually, princess Leia was my inspiration many years ago! : )

Your daughter Ava always looks so happy and joyful! It is a real pleasure to see photos of her.

We call them macaroons! It does works with all hair, as I do them for both girls…

Thank you so much! After 3 boys and now a girl, I know I will be lost as to what to do when my daughter finally has hair. Filing this idea away.

Thanks so much for this post, I have always wondered how you and Courtney did these! Tried it out today on my little girl and it looked so cute! Just need a little more practise! :0)
