Cupcake's Twisties Hairstyle

*As always, start with clean, well-conditioned hair.

Step 1: Part the hair and pony tail. OK, don't flip out. You can do this... Start by dividing the hair into three sections from side to side. Then divide each of those sections into five (or more if you're really brave) sections from front to back. Ponytail as you go using a little Carol's Daughter Hair Milk or Loc Butter in each section.

Step 2: Starting on one side, twist the back section and the front section and band together at the middle section. Repeat on the two outside sections on each side, but not the very middle section.

*Twists are made by separating a pony into two parts, twisting both hair sections in one direction (let's just say right), and then wrapping the opposite direction (left) to make a rope. Did I explain that well? Where's a web cam when you need one?

You should now have two ponytails on each side of the head (ignoring the middle row) that are gathered at the middle section. If you're confused, join the club... I mean, you're welcome to email me and I'll try to walk you through it.

Step 3: Comb out the outside two ponytails (the ones by the ears) thoroughly and then twist each and band together with the next one in.

Are you following?

Step 4: Comb those ponytails out thoroughly and twist each.

You should now have five ponytails. Four making a diamond around the one in the dead center.

Step 5: Gather all four twists to the center and comb out the final ponytail thoroughly. Hang in there. You're almost done. Put on another Charlie & Lola episode and you'll be home free!

Step 6: Curlie cue tiny little sections (with a dab of Hair Milk on each) to make a cute little ribbon pile of hair on top!

And SHAZAM! There you have it!

This style lasted on Cupcake for about 2 weeks.

And, personally, it's one of my favorites! (And so is my Cupcake!)

Style time: 1 hour


  1. Laurie, this is beautiful! Like "flower girl" beautiful!

  2. Adorable hairstyle! Do you put anything on your daughter's hair at night to keep her hairstyle from pulling out? A scarf or wrap?
