Make a twist braid by gathering hair from the right-hand side of the head and braiding it downward. Bring the completed braid to the left-hand side of the head, and secure it in place by pinning a small bun near the nape of the neck.
- Collect the materials
Gather a hair brush and bobby pins. Hairspray is optional.
- Brush the hair
Run a brush through the hair to eliminate any knots.
- Begin the braid
Start at the right-hand side of the forehead, and take a piece of hair approximately 2 inches in diameter. Divide the hair into two pieces, and begin winding the separated sections around one another.
- Bring the braid to the left
Continue the braid down the head by adding more pieces of hair from the right-hand side. Twist them around the existing braid. Keep the braid near the hair line, and turn it towards the left-hand side of the head.
- Finish with a bun
Keep braiding until there is no more hair to twist. Style the end of the braid into a small bun. Secure it to the head near the nape of the neck with bobby pins. Leave a few strands loose to enhance the look. Spray the braid and the bun with hairspray if desired.
