The Double Side Twist

next
December Desktop Calendar
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….

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. 🙂

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 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!

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.

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.

One of the most enchanting aspects of the ocean is never being able to see the end of it. It’s so beautifully created for our eyes.
It’s currently raining where I live, and I’m in the process of studying for finals, so talking about the beach is a little relieving!

I absolutely LOVE the beach! I live so far away from the ocean so anytime I get to vacation my destination is always to the beach.

I would love to win these beautiful pins, I recently had to cut my hair short due to damage done by coloring and my hair is finally healthy and pretty an this would be the perfect addition.

I LOVE the mountains! I have so many wonderful memories of camping from when I was growing up. Something about being outdoors just makes you bond with your family and friends. The place we always went had chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry smelling pine trees – so fun!

I love both, but If I had to choose I’d say beach.
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!

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 like them both – being in the mountains I can get close to the ones I am with without the distractions of gadgets and enjoy nature. At the beach we can relax and have fun in the sand and water.

I have a 20 month old little boy and love being outside – letting him explore. We haven’t been to the mountains yet but the beach. It’s fun to see him react to new things and getting a new appreciation for what we take for granted. It’s also fun to see him be outside… picking up rocks, sticks, etc.

I love experiencing nature via the beach; since I moved to the East coast this passed Spring, I was able to experience the ocean first hand and I absolutely love it! I have seen the mountains and they are incredibly beautiful, but I have never really had the opportunity to “experience” them. I also love just sitting on the beach, watching the waves and the wildlife (mostly the birds) and I am in love with the way that the sand feels against my skin. <3 Anywho, LOVE these pins! Thank you for sharing them!!

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.

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

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 now live in the mid-west but previously lived on the south-east coast. I haven’t been to a beach since 2001 and I would love to go back, even if only for an hour so I could hear the waves

I went to Lake Tahoe recently and I have to say that sitting on the beach with mountains in the view is the very best.

I have lived in FL my whole life so I definitely have to say the beach!

The beach because I love to watch my kids play in the sand and water.

I love the beach! I also love these hair pins. I saw them 2 years ago in real simple right before christmas. I begged my husband for them but they sold out so fast and she stopped orders. I really hope I win.

I enjoy nature when I go for a boat ride on the river! There is nothing better 🙂

I love those branch pins!!! Luckily I live some where that has all 4 seasons so I enjoy camping in the spring, going to the lake in the summer and bonfires in the fall! Me and the boy are definitely outdoor people.

The most relaxing place is sitting on a warm white sand beach!

Being from Alaska you might think it would be the mountains, and let me tell you, we have some mountains, which are beautiful, but there is nothing better to me than warm sand, surf and sun. I love to be outside, where it’s warm and the beach is it!

Where I live, we have neither mountains or beach so I would be happy with either!
Love following your blog and love the twig bobbypins too!

My favorite way to experience nature is by relaxing at the beach. I recently moved to a beach town for school, and I make it a point to visit it every time I need an escape. The waves, birds, and wind have such a calming effect.

I have to say I love so many things about both the beach and the mountains! However, the mountains are closer so that is where I end up more often! 🙂

I love to experience both! Love to feel the warm sun and the smell of coconut lotion on my skin with the sand in-between my toes, with a large glass of tropical ice tea!
And for the mountains in fall when all the amazing colors are just starting to fall off the trees and the sound of leaves crunching as you walk trough them while wearing colorful warm scarves around your neck, and these tiny twig pins would look perfect!!

Mountains for sure! But I’m not the camp in a tent, use a propane grill kinda gal. When I say mountains, I mean a small little mountain town where you can rent a cozy cabin. 🙂

I really like this, but I am curious how you do this if you don’t have bangs. Would I take those pieces into the twists then?
