TUTORIAL: Side twist and bun.

Hi! I have a hair tutorial for you all today. This is an up do I have been wearing a lot lately and I thought I'd share it with you. It combines a cute side twist and a volumized high bun. Enjoy!


So, for this look you'll need:

  • Some bobby pins
  • A fine tooth comb
  • Hair bobbles
  • Hairspray

Let's begin! Firstly, brush you hair out and brush it backwards away from your face. Once you have done this, section off your fringe and a little bit of your other hair from whatever side you want to wear your twist. For this look, I wear my twist on the opposite side that I usually wear my fringe.

Once you have sectioned this hair, pull it in front of your face and put the rest of your hair up into a neat, high pony tail. This will be start of your bun. Now, back to the section of hair; to get a more volumized side twist, gently back comb the hair first. Then take two pieces and twist them - plaiting them tightly against your head, after each twist add more hair to each of your two pieces. Repeat this until you have a twist that goes just past your hair. Pin your twist with some bobby pins until secure.

With the hair in your pony tail, bring it up and back comb the underneath of the pony tail until you have lots of volume. Bring your hair down and tidy any bits that are sticking up, being careful not to brush out the volume. Take one side of the ponytail and poof it up to your liking so that it resembles a bun, then secure it place at the side with a bobby bin. Repeat this step with the other side of the ponytail. Any stray hairs pin in place towards the bun and tuck it underneath it possible. Gently pull out the bun a little bit if you want it to be a little bigger and shape it as you want it to be. Spray a generous amount of hair spray all over the hair to keep it in place.

Once you are done, you can now accessorise. I just took a cute little bow clip and put it in front of my bun. You can do this too or add anything else that you want too!

And that's the look. It's super easy and I personally think it looks really nice. Have fun trying it if you do and let me know how it goes! Thank you very much for reading!
