The Romantic Twist

Today is my last hair tutorial in the series with Women's Rogaine (see previous posts here & here) and I'm also sharing my final results after using the product for 4 months.  I have been so pleasantly surprised by the sustained hair growth that I've seen since I began applying the foam once a day to my scalp.  I have a noticeable improvement in volume at my crown due to so many new strands coming in and I'm hoping that after a few more months I will achieve fullness all the way to my ends. 

Since I just ran out of the supply they sent me, I went and purchased a 4 month supply at my local Target so I can keep using it.  My plan is to continue on with my current regimen because I'm so happy to have found something that produces visible results and is easy to use.  I can't wait to get my hair back to the same thickness I used to have and it finally feels like that is within my reach!  For those of you who are interested in trying out Women's Rogaine for yourself, they are currently offering a $5 off printable coupon here.

For this month's hairstyle, I wanted to create something that's simple enough for everyday, but that would also work for evening (especially with all those upcoming holiday parties & NYE).  This will work if you have hair that is my length or longer and it looks best with soft natural-looking waves.  I started with clean hair & then I curled small sections with a 1" barrel curling iron, breaking up the waves with my fingers once cool.  Here are the steps to recreate this pretty romantic style:

Step 1: Take a section of hair from your left side and begin to twist it around, working towards the back of your head as you twist.  Once you reach the middle of your head, secure with a bobby pin, pushing it into the twist so it isn't visible (make sure you're using a bobby pin that matches the color of your hair, just to be sure).
Step 2: Take the same sized section of hair from your right side and begin to twist in the same way.  Grab the end of the twist and tuck it through the top of the other twist & pull through underneath.  Secure with a bobby pin underneath so it isn't visible.
Step 3 (optional): Accent with a crystal hair pin or vintage comb to give it an evening-ready feel. I didn't have one so to create the same effect, I used this crystal bracelet & tucked it into the twist until it felt secure.  Alternately, you could use a sprig of Baby's Breath or a few small Stephanotis flowers.
Step 4: Finish with a light spritz of flexible-hold hairspray.
