The Facebook Twist – a hair tutorial

I am excited about today’s tutorial!  About a week ago I asked you on our Facebook page which hairstyle you would like to see up next on the blog.  I loved the responses, but the one with my most requests was this beauty.  So after looking at it for a minute, I thought I would give it a go!  I am so happy I did because it actually turns out to be a lot easier than it looks.

The biggest problem I had was the name!  I could not come up with a name!  I asked again on Facebook (you guys are a great resource!) and the suggestions flew!  From Rupunzel, to wispy goddess twist, to my fair lady, to “I don’t know, just show me the tutorial!” I didn’t really land on anything.  So here are a few pictures of my take on it, and after you watch the video, be sure to leave your name suggestion for it in the comments!


I have put together a video tutorial for you as well so you can see how easy it really is.  Few things I need to clarify.  The back bun part of mine is a little neater than hers.  This can easily be changed by just bunching up the back and pinning.  In the video I suggested I was going to give a quick tutorial on how to rope braid and then didn’t for the sake of time, so if you didn’t pick it up from the video, here is a rope braid tutorial.  I didn’t mention, but in the beginning of the video, my hair is no heat curls with volumizing root spray from the night before, added a few curls in the morning and then teased the roots.  A ‘how to tease your hair’ video is coming soon!

Okay, I think I cleared everything up!  I really hope you watch it and enjoy it and learn a new hairstyle today!  Feel free to pin and share if you liked it!

Have a great weekend!

    So pretty! I love it! Hmm… I was thinking for the name…. Goddess Twist (loved that idea)? Pretzel Updo? Ballroom Twist? 🙂

    I love this-thanks for the tutorial! The first thing I thought of when I looked at this was that it looked like it came straight out of ‘Avonlea’! Have you ever seen the “Anne of Green Gables” movies?? As for me I will consider this the ‘Avonlea twist’ 🙂 Great job and you have beautiful hair!

      I have and I love them!! The books and the movies! Actually, that is probably the best suggestion I have heard yet because it fits. I think you’ve won it! Thanks so much for the suggestion!

        Wow! I thought you might think I was crazy or something and would have no idea what I was talking about! I almost didn’t suggest anything out of fear of embarrassment….this is very encouraging 😉
