Summertime often evokes elegant and soft hairstyles. Perhaps it’s because with summer comes a more whimsical attitude and a sense of happiness throughout the air.
I know, I sound like I’m writing a book of poetry.
Moving on. Summer, as wonderful as it is, can make wearing hair down a rather unpleasant experience. Humidity kicks in, causing our hair to frizz out of control, and if it’s hot, we feel our strands clinging to the backs of our necks and faces like bacon to a hot pan.
Not so nice.
I’ve come up with a summer twisted crown hair tutorial in hopes of assisting in reducing these unpleasant experiences for those of us who do wear our hair down in the warmer months. The image associated with this post is my own hair after completing the look, so, if you’re a fan, give it a try yourself. This style works with both long and short hair, although it’s likely easier to do with longer hair.
Begin by grabbing a section of hair on either side of your part, roughly two inches in diameter. These sections should be slightly above your temple. Beginning with one section of hair, divide it into two separate sections and begin to twist the hair around each other in a rope fashion. Secure the end with a bobby pin (or just secure it with your lips, like I do), and do the same to the other side. Once both pieces have been twisted, secure them at the back of your head with an elastic.
Pretty simple, right?
When I wear this twisted crown hairstyle, I either braid my hair overnight to give it some nice waves come morning or, if I’m feeling a little more snazzy, I’ll curl it.
This look takes about 15 minutes to complete, and it’s perfect for summer. Give it a try!
