Romantic Half-Up Twists

Romantic half up twists (click-through for the full tutorial)-1 Romantic half-up twists (click-through for the full tutorial)Step One: Start with styled or curly hair.

Step Two: Take a small section of hair from either side of your head. Twist them and tie them together into a small ponytail with an elastic.

Step Three: Take a small section of hair beneath your twists on the left side of your head. Twist it a few times, then pull it above where you tied your hair off and under the small ponytail. In this way it sort of loops over your original twists/ponytail.

Step Four: Repeat on your right side; take a small section of hair beneath the section you tied off, twist it a few times, pull it over your tied off section and then under so it loops.

Step Five: Repeat another time on your left and right side, taking sections of hair closer to the center.

Step Six: Pull the loops and your original twists apart for a softer, messier look.

Romantic half-up twists (click-through for the full tutorial)Pretty simple, right? I feel like it’s such a soft, romantic look, perfect for a date night or fancy outfit. You can play with the volume and look of your twists by pulling them apart some or even adding some texture powder to really mess-y them up. I’ve never tried this style with straight hair before because I’m a sucker for curls right now, but it might also work with less styled hair. Cheers, Rebecca.

  • Hello! Any chance you could offer a few hair styles for those of us with straight, fine hair? I LOVE many of these looks, but no matter what I do, my hair refuses to be anything but straight. No curls, little to no volume… any ideas?

  • I love the colour of your hair! It’s very romantic looking in that style 🙂

  • So Pretty! Wish my hair was long enough to do this now.
