What we did:
The night before after washing her hair and detangling and moisturizing - I twisted her hair in little pieces (in all honestly I wanted to know what would happen if we finger coiled her hair! LOL! Yeah, we don't have the right kind of hair for that! ... but it's a super cute style. Anyway)
I twisted and twisted and then I pinned a few of the twists up (I wrapped the twists around each other in little buns) and left them overnight.
The next morning when I took the clips out - her hair looked pretty goofy! So I pulled all those top twists (the twists in back that I hadn't pinned had fallen out) into a side ponytail.
Then I pulled the rest of her hair up toward the first ponytail and made a second on with her remaining hair.
Tada :) I also added that big twist in to make the twists look cohesive.
and added a big flower! To match the dress I made for Q. :) (and then managed to shrink in the dryer after she wore in once.)
To get this style without teh crazy twisting overnight thing - you could just start with fresh twists the day of styling. The only difference would be - can you see how these twists are kinda curvy? (It was easier to see in real life!) You wouldn't have that with fresh twists - but it's probably not that big of a deal! :) I think this style is fun and unique whichever method you use!
Another option would be to make the ponytails into messy buns. - Q's curls kinda kept them together anyway, but on straight hair I would probably do messy buns because as the day went on you could kind of start seeing that it was two ponytails rather than one big curly poof. Tweet
