This quick hairstyle gets big points for looking very pretty and coming together in just a matter of moments. It also works in all sort of hair textures from fine and straight to thick and curly.
Would you believe me if I told you that we just found out that our sixth baby will be our fifth daughter?
Yep, it’s true! My son will now be outnumbered five to one, but he’s still excited to have a new baby arriving soon and I just love him for that. Babies are always blessings. Always.
With all of these girls in the house, I will continue to have many heads of hair to keep up and out of their sweet little faces. That means I need quick and easy styles that I can do in a matter of seconds.
Thankfully, I have a few of those tried-and-true, quick-and-easy styles up my proverbial sleeves. This Twisted Half-Up is one of those styles. It’s a bit prettier than a regular half-up, and it takes just a few seconds longer to do, as well.
And since I haven’t shared a hairstyle tutorial in almost a year, and when I did share a few, you all seemed to like them, I thought I’d share this one with you!
If you happen to remember the tutorial I shared last year of the quickest and easiest French Twist method you could ever ask for, then this will look familiar. I do the same hook and twist action with the hair, but only with the top section of it.
I secure this style two different ways. If I do it straight back, which I most often do, I use a Lilla Rose Flexi-Clip.
For my three year old daughter, who happens to be my lovely hair model in the video below, I often do this style off to the side to catch the many shorter hairs that like to hang in her eyes. Then I’ll use either a Flexi or a set of short You-Pins, also from Lilla Rose.
You can see both styles and both ways of securing it in this video:

I think this style is pretty enough to do for a date night, but it’s really simple enough that I do this on one of my daughters at least once a week. I like doing my hair like this, too, on the rare occasion that I don’t have it all up.
I might still admire the intricate Pinterest-perfect styles that pop up on social media, but I’ll stick with styles like this for real life!
