Remember this double crown braid with donut bun hairstyle that was featured in our Braiding Is Art Center Stage Post? (There are many more adorable hairstyles in that post, be sure to take a look). Several people asked for a tutorial on the style and Cynthia the hairstylist behind Braiding is Art was generous enough to provide us with a video tutorial on the double crown braid with donut bun hairstyle, which you can find below. I’ve also created a step by step how to with photo’s below as well.

Natural Hairstyle Updo: Copy Cat Style

For this months Hair Carnival each participating blogger was randomly assigned to another blog in which they were to copy a style from, similar to our September Hair Carnival. The blog I was given was Brown Girls Hair.

twisted updo hairstyle

The style I chose to recreate was their natural hairstyle updo for girls from this video tutorial. I did do it differently to put our own spin on it, but I used the same basic concept.

What I did was make 4 ponytails down the center of her head, I made each ponytail into a 2 strand twist, then wrapped them around each other and pinned them with bobby pins once I had them how I wanted them.
