The Double Side Twist

12
05
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!

    I love to experience nature both by mountain and beach! I love the colors of the water with the sand and finding shells everywhere but also love to be on top of a mountain and feel like you can see everything because it is just SO beautiful! Love your blog!

    My favorite way to enjoy nature is taking my “crew” ( 2 dachshunds and 1 rescue mutt) to the creek behind my house. Watching them run free with ears up and nose to the ground at times makes me smile….

    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. 🙂

I think it helps people to center when presented with the bigger picture at Lake Phelps. Truly an AMAZING place.

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.

    My favorite way to enjoy nature is to get up early in the morning right after a heavy rain and go for a long trail run. I love the smell of the freshly watered earth, and I especially love to get splashed with mud. After I’m done running (and completely covered with dirt) I like to head down to the beach inlet and sit in the surf while the salt water cools off my sore calves and washes all the mud away. It feels so great and I feel a real connection to mother nature.

    While I’ve been to the mountains many times and they are beautiful, I have to say my favorite is the beach. The first time I saw the ocean (in Mexico) it quite literally took my breathe away. Just the magnificent spance of it. The sight of the water, breeze blowing cool salty ocean air. The trees swaying in time with the waves. I couldn’t help but stop for just a minute and marvel at Gods creation.

    I’ve never been to the mountains, but I’ve always wanted to live in Colorado! So although I do love the beach atmosphere, sand is messy, and I usually end up by the pool when I’m at the beach anyway! I’ll have to go with mountains for this one 🙂

    Or (I know this isn’t on your list, but…) I’d also add the desert. The desert during the winter when it’s not as hot but still has all the quiet stillness and beautiful sand and rock deserts are known for is sooooo calming to me. (A big group of friends and I used to go out to Death Valley or Joshua Tree every year at New Years.)

    My favorite way to experience nature just so happens to be my most treasured time with my family. Every summer since I was 2 my family (mom, dad, brother, and I, along with some close family friends) take a camping trip down to the Guadlupe River. As time quickly progressed over the years everyone has ventured in thier own directios some being college, some new jobs in new cities, or some caught up in sports, church or just everyday life. But one thing that has remained constant is our trip to the river. Same people, same place! It’s awesome to see how much our camp site has changed in a year, or how much everyone’s faces have changed. Or the new paths the river has made over the 12 months, or the new paths we’ve started on in our journey in life. The trip is so symbolic to the tradition we have. Sometimes the river has experienced floods and damanges or ever drought. Which at times each family member or friend has as well, but yet we still live through the hard times as did our river to see it’s changes from the hardship and we look forward to seeing its recooperation along with the bounce back of our family and friends. No matter how busy our lives get, or cluttered with electronics, or the hardships we face, we always have the river to enjoy it’s many and ever changing faces of nature and make memories to last a lifetime.

    I live in a place near both the mountains and the ocean so it’s a difficult choice. Saying that I’d rather be walking on the side of a mountain through the trails. I love the smells and sounds of the forest. Besides, I’m quite pale and very likely to get a sunburn on the beach, less so in the shade of the trees!!

    I love the beach. I grew up in the mountains (hills) of PA and in the summer my family would pack up the car and head to Ocean City, MD. Being near the water relaxes me and digging my toes into the sand is the greatest feeling. I like the mountains in the western US. The mountains here on the east are just hills compared to the awesomeness out west.

    I personally love the mountains because everything is just so crisp and pure when you are that high above sea level. I love the cool breeze as it flutters through the Aspens, walking up to a waterfall in the summer, and standing at the tip of one of the Rockies as you stare in wonder at all God has created.

    This is the first time I have ever seen your blog, and I am glad I stumbled upon it. The advice you give and things you post make me want to add some extra pretty in my day. Its little inspirations like these that can go a long way. As for the beach or mountains, I am not able to get away from my small town in Upstate New York much but this past Thanksgiving I was fortunate to make it to Florida to see some family. And I must say there is nothing like the smell of the ocean. The ocean breeze almost makes you feel like your dreams could come true and its nice for that moment to get caught up in the whimsy of it all. This must by why people love the beach so much, your worries get swept away with the tide! I look forward to reading your blog in the future, thanks for the great tips!

    Favorite way to experience nature: ANY way! We live in Alaska so we do tones of hiking and snow-shoeing in the mountains. I also run on our coastal trail 2-3 times a week – it is all beautiful. however, I LOVE to go to the beach when we’re in warmer locales…I love to visit my cousin in San Diego or my inlaws in South Africa and hang out on the beach lots!

But in my regular, non-vacation time of life, we love the mountains, or forests. We really enjoy taking family hikes and just enjoying the world around us.

    I think for me the best way to expierence nature is to sit in a deer stand and bow hunt. I live in Minnesota, and I found a new passion and peacefulness in hunting. I know it might sound a bit “redneck” but it truly is amazing. I am a 41 year old mother of 2, my son is 8 his name is Lake (yes, Lake… his grandpa is a big fisherman) and my daughter Adison is 6. I graduate nursing school in May and I work FT at Children’s Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Growing up with my dad and brother hunting and fishing, I never really understood it…. now I do! It is so peaceful to just sit and listen to the wind blowing through the trees and the deer come up and eat from the land. I have yet to actually “kill” a deer, but sitting there is just as rewarding. My boyfriend (Steve) of 5 years is the one who introduced me to this. Don’t get me wrong, I still love to be girly, and he laughs cause I have makeup on and paint my nails and such, but I still love to just sit for a few hours and enjoy the nature around me! Really, you should try it sometime.

    I love to experience nature at the beach. My in-laws live in Myrtle Beach which is only a short 3 hour drive from us here in Raleigh, NC. I love walking the beach, viewing the wildlife that is there and collecting shells. There is a beach at the park that we go to there where you can view alligators…more so in the warmer months than cooler months. You will see them sunning themselves on the ‘islands’ in the water. You can also go crabbing there and see tons of different types of birds.

But I also enjoy the beach, the warm sand, the sound of the ocean,the smell. The breezes. So I could enjoy either, at any time of the year.

    Put me down for the mountains! Ever since I visited Austria, mountains have been the most breath taking experience in nature for me. I live in a flatter than flat county; so when there are clouds in the distant that span the horizon, I pretend they’re the mountains I remember seeing as a young girl.

    Well… December 9th is my bday. So these would make a great little bday surprise. I love nature. I love hiking in the mountains and relaxing on the beach. In the last year, I have had the chance to live on a beautiful island in the Pacific. The waters are gorgeous, but the island is completely flat. Whenever I would travel away from it to hills or mountains, I realize how much I miss seeing the beautiful mountains from my home state of WV. I am not sure where I will live next, but I hope for mountains (and some easy beach access)

    “I want to see mountains, Gandolf!” (Sorry, couldn’t help myself). Sure, the beach is fun with sandy toes, little ones building castles, & the smell of salt & coconut oil. But the mountains, oh the mountains. Whether it be fall with a million colors spread over peak after peak, or winter with snow caps and icesicles dangling from bare tree limbs, or summer with windows open while winding up the mountain roads to the very top to the view. The mountains boast of God’s glorious creation.

    Tough choice. I’ve created equally the amount of great memories at the beach and in the mountains, but I’d have to say my favorite of those memories was always going to Gatlinburg, TN in the Fall. I feel the happiest and the most at peace there (the leaves changing, the cool weather, the mountains of course!). Surrounded by it all and the nature has a calming effect to it. Plus even though I love having my feet in the sand, you can’t get a sunburn in the mountains. 😉

    I love the mountains so very much…there is just something to be said about the moments you can spend there. My favorite experience was in Peru when I was sitting atop a “mountain” of sorts with two other young women from my mission group…no one was speaking but there was no reason to do so. We looked over the metal rooftops of the slums and breathed in the dusty air; we could see the coast of the Pacific Ocean from where we sat. In a sense it was so peaceful; the silent sounds of Lurin and the warm breeze were enough to put us in a state of lovely stupor. With no sense of actual time it felt as if the moment could last forever. So, for me the mountains are my affinity

  536. Posted December 8, 2011

    I’ve lived 5 minutes away from the beach all my life, and you know what they say – you always want what you don’t have. Going hiking up a mountain was always a special experience for me, so different than what I see everyday. So definitely mountain, the more woodsy, the better!

    I’ve lived all my life on the shores of Lake Michigan, so there’s no denying that the beach has my heart. However, once a year, my family travels to Maine & there’s something about the mountains that just grasps hold of your inner free soul. Both are pretty amazing. 🙂
