http://www.hairromance.com/p/30-hairstyles-in-30-days.html here is where I got the following hairdo Idea, this one is day 3 in the book,
So this kinda looks like a french braid but really its just twists tied in a knot and secured with bobby pins
So you take your pieces of hair from the sides, and twist to the center
put one over the other one, and pull them so they look like this, secure with pins and do again, I think that we did 4 or 5 going down the back of her head at an angle,
oh, her hair was wavy from french braids the day before,
and that helped with volume, (not like she needs volume) I also curled the ends with my chi
Then we tied hair around the elastic using our awesome little topsy tail!
and your done!
