Twisted Half Up Tutorial



In case you  missed the tutorial for creating these bouncy curls I’m wearing in this tutorial, click here! The makeup look I wore in this tutorial can be found here!

I made this up as I went, and loved how soft the layered twists look in the end. The curlier your hair, the better, but I think straight hair could look awesome as long as you keep the twists very soft and loose!

    I love this look, and with my thick hair, in small sections, I think I might actually be able to pull it off. By the way Kate, what is that nail polish you have on? I love it!!
