Twisted Bun ~ a hair tutorial

Hello everybody! Today I am going to be showing you how to do this cute twisted bun on your dolls hair!

This is what it will look like when you're done. Are you ready to try it? Lets get started! :)

You will need:
A doll with medium to long hair
A hair brush
Clear hair elastics (found for $1 at the dollar store)
Bobby pins (I am using mini ones that I got at Walmart for 2 or 3 dollars)

First you pull your dolls hair into a ponytail. I chose a high ponytail, but you could do a low one or whatever you want.

Then split the hair into two even sections.

Put one section to the side, and split the other section into two more even sections.

Twist them both to the right....

And then twist them both together to the left.

When you get to the end of her hair, tie it off with an elastic.

Do the same to the other section.

Next, cross the left twist on top of the right one.

Pull the twists above her head.

Cross the ends over each other, and tuck the ends into the bun.

Bobby pin it into place and you're done!

Photoshoot time! :D
