This one is my personal favorite, other than just a French braid. I like to call it the twisted tiara because it's raised up from the scalp and looks a bit like a crown. And also because who doesn't love alliteration?
Starting at your part, lift up two pieces of hair and do one twist.
Pick up another strand of hair from your hairline and add it to the front piece.
Twist that front piece and the new strand backwards and over the back piece. Your back piece is now your front piece.
Repeat Step Two and Three over and over until you think you're done.
Grasp the two pieces and twist them together into one, and push them against your scalp so the French Twist you've just created gets a bit of volume.
Take a bobby pin. Push it through the end of your twist from underneath and twist/push it in until it feels secure to you. You can add more bobby pins throughout the "tiara" if you feel some places are loose.
Hit that baby with some hairspray and you've hidden your bangs away for the day! This is great for summer, too, because it's fast (once you get the hang of it) and looks great with beachy waves. Or with just plain ol' fresh from sleep lazy butt I just don't care hair.
Happy hair-days to you all.
