Twist the hair until you get about halfway down.

Now create a high half-ponytail with the rest of your hair, including the small ponytail you’ve already created.

Slightly pull out the braid to make it more voluminous.

I love all of the different components of this look - the two twisted sections at the front, the hair sweeping upwards at the sides, and the twisted high bun.

This is such a pretty and unique look which is great if you’re looking for something different.
