This style came about on a busy Sunday morning when I had less then 5 minutes to do my hair, but it needed to look really nice, and that most quickly. So, I experimented…and from that simple experiement I received so many compliments that I thought I’d share how to do this style with you!
The accessories ^ (just as a note, I found everything shown at either Rite-Aid or Walmart… And if you can’t find “fancy” barrettes, just plain ones will do the job just as well. )
Start by brushing out your hair ^
Gather the top half of your hair into a barrette, making sure that it is smooth on top.
Now, (this part is a bit tricky if you have layered hair) gather all your hair into your hand and twist it, starting at the top and working down until you have a “rope” of hair.. Don’t try to secure it, just hold on to the end and don’t let it untwist…
Now, bring your hair up and twist it around, underneath the large barrette…this part is a bit tricky and will take a few tries… but basically just make sure it is smooth…remember, bobby pins fix a multitude of sins.
Secure with the 4 clips – Just clip the “rosette” at all four corners. In spite of the feeling that it won’t stay, it will if you get the clips in well enough. Now, I usually use several bobby pins to secure it even more, but that’s totally up to you. If you are going to be dancing or moving around a lot, I do suggest at least two or three bobby pins.
And then of course, our friend the hairspray. :laughing:
And that my friends, is it. It’s a simple and pretty way to put up your hair, and I’m getting quite attracted to it. I imagine it would look especially lovely in curly hair! If you wouldn’t mind, send me pictures if you do your hair this way! I’d love to see them!
