How to Do a Half-Up Twist Hairstyle
This style is remarkably simple—a couple of twists, a few pins, and you’re done—and yet it’s undeniably striking.

Begin by separating the hair at your crown area. Using a fine-tooth comb, tease the hair by slowly combing it toward your scalp. (For the basics of teasing, see Bryan’s video tutorial.)
With your fingers (or the wide-tooth end of the comb), smooth the hair to cover the teasing. Then secure that top section of hair, up at your crown, with a few bobby pins inserted horizontally.
Separate a section of hair in front of one ear and twist it toward the back. Position the twist on top of the previously inserted pins to cover them. Insert a bobby pin or two into the twist to secure it. Repeat on the other side.
