Hair: braided and twisted

Here my friend Kendra is sporting the dutch braid. To create this look, part your hair to one side and gather three separate pieces of hair, as if you were about to french braid. Now, instead of moving the hair over as you braid, put it under! It's just like french braiding except the hair goes underneath as you braid instead of over! It gives you a fun alternative to a regular bun that's easy to create.

I like to call this hairstyle the twisted bun. It's one of the most simple hairstyles I know how to create! Part your hair to one side and grab a nicely sized piece. Start twisting the hair away from your face, and keep the hair very close to your head as you twist. I like to keep twisting my hair along the back as well, and then finish it all of with a side bun!

Pretty amazing friend right here! :)

Much love, Vivi
