The Double Side Twist

I saw these twig bobby pins years go in a Real Simple magazine. Do you remember seeing them?


I fell in love immediately. 

So I did some research and discovered that the artist behind them has so much more than just twig bobby pins. She's integrated nature into jewelry and hair accessories. 

I used her Tiny Twig Pins in this tutorial to show you how to twist hair out of your face, but still keep in chic.

This style can be done on almost any length and any texture. You can use plain bobby pins, Tiny Twig Pins, bobby pins with gems on them, etc.
If you don't have bangs, just include them in the twists! 



Refer to this post to see what's in my hair. 



My bottom twist needed to be adjusted after I finished the tutorial and it doesn't look very twisted in the photos. But follow the video for a more twisty look!

  25. Very adorable pins!

    This is a hard question to answer as I hate being cold... I love being around water but prefer smaller bodies such as lakes and ponds. But few things compare to the majesty of a gorgeous mountain with snow. :)

  26. My favorite way to experience nature is with a mountain, although I also LOVE beaches. But when you go to a mountainous region and you look up, and the sky is so full of stars that you almost can't tell one from another is my favorite thing ever. :)

  143. I love the mountains, but I haven't been able to go to the beach in a couple of years, so I miss that too.

  144. I am a beach lover! I miss the waves and salty air. I live in Oklahoma now, we don't have beaches or mountains. Tiffany Mushegan- tdm72@yahoo.com

  145. Love these pins! I could use them for me and/or my daughter! Pretty! I love the mountains and the beach.. really being outside, anywhere, is perfect with me! (except in the really cold winter, you'll probably find me inside!) ;) Thanks! Andrea andit11@hotmail.com

  146. I love to experience nature in the MOUNTAINS! I went to college in the mountains, and loved the snow/bare trees in the winter, beautiful summer weather and everchanging leaves in the fall!

  150. First off, LOVE your hair tutorials! I've tried a few and am having great luck! Thanks for sharing.

    Considering I am leaving for the beach tomorrow, I will say the beach!

  151. I love nature and so I am just happy to be in it no matter where I am. Although since it is only 16 degrees outside, I think I would much rather prefer the beach!

  158. I've had much more experience with beaches than mountains, so out of nostalgia I'd say beaches. I love the smell, sights, sounds, and the feel of the sun on my skin.

  163. I love the beach, but prefer a lake beach to an ocean beach. I live in Ohio and my husband and I love taking camping trips to different spots along the great lakes. We actually met on a camping trip with mutual friends and then got engaged on the shore of Lake Erie on another trip a few years later.

    I also love incorporated nature-inspired pieces into what I wear. These Tiny Twig Pins are adorable!

  164. I'm blessed to live a mile from the beach, so if I'm to experience nature, I love the mountians- the trees, streams, wildlife and fresh air, is such a difference to what I see everyday!

    Love the pins! amber(dot)seggie(at)gmail(dot)com

  165. I love multiple aspects of nature, it is hard to choose just one, the beach is wonderful, the mountains are fantastic for a great hike, even a beautiful open field can be such a treat!

  171. I'm a Colorado girl through and through, so definitely the mountains. I love hiking and biking and playing in the rivers in the summer and skiing in the winter.

    I do love me the beach though, it's always a treat to visit.

  172. I love to experience nature by running outside. It allows me to experience the sounds and smells of nature as well as the weather. It beats running on a treadmill and it relieves stress! I also enjoy the beach and ocean.

  175. I like being outside in general, but I'd have to go with the mountains because I'm not a huge fan of super hot weather. I'd love to be at the beach for about 3 months, and the mountains for the other 9!

  176. I definitely love the beach but I can't say no to the mountains in the fall when the leaves are so pretty and there is a trip to the apple orchard involved!

  177. love the twig bobby pins!!
    best way to experience nature, is carving down an empty mountain on my snowboard, then taking a rest on the chair lift and taking in the view... ahhh

  178. So pretty. I am always looking for ways to get my bangs out of my face (they are in the process of growing out) and this is a perfect way to do it!

  195. My favorite way is the forest neither beach or mountain but of the two I don't often sea the beach so I would choose that. The twig pins are SO cute.

  196. I love nature...how trees look when you stand underneath them and look up through the branches <3 It's like natures version of lace, just stunning! Watching a sunrise or a sunset , wherever you happen to be, brings instant awe and a sense of peace to my soul. I enjoy bringing nature into my home in simple, unexpected ways. Small polished rocks sit in a glass bowl on my desk to hold my pens. They stand straight up! Wild honeysuckle vine, twisted into a loose runner across the top of a 3/4 wall.
    I can tuck in flowers to dry in the spring and summer, favorite leaves from fall walks, any number of momento

    ReplyDelete
  197. Oh, those are cute!

    I'm a both girl. I spend every summer in the Smokies or Rockies. Love the mountains in the summer and fall.
    Take me to the beach in the winter and early spring. There's nothing like a sunrise (east coast) or sunset (west coast) over the ocean to SCREAM God's creativity with color.

  198. That's a hard choice. I love all forms of nature, but I think right now I'd have to choose the mountains!
