I’m pretty clueless when it comes to hair and styling it in different ways, so I love finding hairstyles that look cool and are really easy to do. Case in point, the Meadow Twist, which we named after our bohemian Free People girl. It looks so pretty, and can be done in just a few minutes with only one elastic head band! It’s a great, versatile holiday style that can be embellished by adding accessories like flowers or headpieces.
What you need: an elastic headband – I like using one with a similar color to my hair so it isn’t noticeable.
Start by placing the headband on top of your hair as pictured. If you have bangs like me, you can put the headband underneath the bangs at this point or later when you’re finished with the twisting.
Take the first section of hair on one side, and tuck it over the headband, pulling it through the inside of the headband as pictured.
Continue this process, adding more hair as you go until you reach the back of your head. Repeat the same process on the other side.
By the time you get to the back, you can simply tuck the remaining hair into the band – if it isn’t staying put, add a few bobby pins. My hair is really thin and slippery but it has stayed remarkably well without any bobby pins!
If you have bangs, pull them out over the headband to hide it. If you don’t have bangs, when you start with step one push the headband back on your head a bit and twist the front pieces of your hair on each side over the headband to cover it.
I like leaving a few loose ends out to give this a slightly messy look. Once your Meadow Twist is finished, you can dress it up a bit by adding flowers for a pretty, bohemian look!
Here’s a tip: leave it in overnight and you’ll have wavy hair the next day!
