Here’s a simple twist….with a twist! (Well, knot, really.) Here’s the step-by-step of each image:

1. Pull hair into a low pony tail.

2. Section hair into two parts: about one third in one section and two thirds in the other.

3. Twist the larger section into a bun and secure with bobby pins.

4. Smooth out the smaller section and pull it up loosely over the bun–secure the middle of that section to the top/base of the bun leaving the tail loose.

5. Separate the tail into two equal sized sections and tie them together once like you would at the beginning of tying a bow or shoe lace.

6. Wrap around and pin down the rest of those tails underneath the bun.

Ta-da! A simple yet chic updo for your very long hair.

Beautiful beautiful hair. I’d try something similar if my hair was as thick as hers…! :(

The expansive stone complex became the perfect setting for this modern bridal fashion inspiration: a chic column gown and simple greenery bouquet are a stunning contrast to the ancient setting.
