How to create a Crown Twist Braid | Updo Hairstyles


[MUSIC PLAYING] You are the icing on my cake. You are the smile
I can’t replace. -Hey, everyone. I’m Mindy from Cute
Girls Hairstyle, and today CGH3 and I
are going to show you how to do a crown twist. So lots of you guys
remember our crown braid. We’ve had such good
feedback from it, so I’m going to show
you a variation today using a rope twist,
which is great. Now, just a preface
really quick. It’s, like, pouring torrential
rain here right now. So if you hear thunder
or lighting or crazy rain on the roof, I’m really sorry. But it’s just the
way it goes in Texas. So tip your head a
little bit to the side. We’re going to start by
picking up a section of hair right here by her ears. Her one ear. I’m going to take a
section, and then I’m going to divide that
section into half. So two pieces. Now, I’ve decided
to use a rope braid because I think it stays in
just a little bit better. OK. Now, to do a rope
twist, you’re going to twist both
pieces to the right, and then cross them over
each other to the left. Then you’re to add
hair in to that piece. Give it a twist to the right,
and cross it over to the left. Add hair in to the
front piece, give it a slight twist to the right,
cross it over to the left. And you’re just going to
continue this as you go along. Try to make sure you get
all the baby hairs in. So twist to the right,
cross to the left. Now you’ll notice that I don’t
have a very structured part line right here. It’s OK. Not a problem. We’re not going to worry
about that right now. We’re just going to keep adding
hair into that front piece. Add a little more
in right there. Give it a twist to the right,
cross it over to the left. Add it in, twist to the
right, cross over to the left. You can tip your
head up a little now. And just continue along. Twist the hair to the
right, cross it over. Now, you can see that
we’re about an inch back from the part line. We’re going to try to keep
it pretty close to her ear. We don’t want it cutting
halfway through her head, so we’re going to try to keep it
right down the top of her ear. Twisty twist to the
right, cross to the left. Again, I’m going to try to
hug pretty close to the ear on this one side just so that it
gives a really nice pretty halo effect when we’re all done. Continuing to do this. I’m going to just finger
comb though her hair back here so that I make sure
it’s laying where I want it. OK. Continue. Pick up some more hair,
twist it to the right. It’s seriously pouring like
crazy outside right now. Cats and dogs are
hitting my roof. And there’s the thunder. OK. Keep going. Twist it. Twist it to the right. Now, as you get
along to this side, the trick here is to make
sure that you’re just keeping it really
tight against the head. You’re going to have
to maybe just make sure that it’s really snug
up against their head. You don’t want to
pull their hair and hurt them,
but just make sure that when you do this–
especially this last twist that I’m just about
to do– you need it to lay really tight
against their head, or it’s going to
poke up and just look funny when you’re done. So just give it a really
good little snug twist, and then go ahead and twist it. And then I’m just going
to continue to rope twist, and now I’m not
adding in hair at all. So I’m just twisting
the two pieces together. You can see I’m still
twisting it to the right before I cross it
over to the left. All the way down. And in a minute you’ll see
little pieces of her hair start popping out from where
the ends of her hair are. It’s OK. We’re going to hid all of it. So just go down as far as you
can, add an elastic in the end, and then we’re
going to take this. We’re going to take it up
right behind her first twist, and we’re going to take this
end and just lift it and just tuck it under. Pretty easy. Just give it a little tuck. If you need to even, you
can add a little bobby pin. Hers, seriously, would
just stay in by itself. But if you need to, feel
free to add a bobby pin. Then I’m going to go
and just loosen up this front part a
little, because I want it to look like they’re
mushing together all to form one twist instead of
looking like two separate. You can pull this
up and over the top. I don’t like the way
it looks as much, so I’d rather just kind
of loosen this a bit and make it just sort
of blend together. I am going to do one
bobby pin right there. There we go. And if you don’t love the
way it works right here, you can go and loosen
this side just a little bit so that it evens it out. Because obviously
the hair’s going to be thicker on this
side than this side. This is like a visual
trick of the eye. Just pull this out,
it makes this side look a little fluffier
and a little more full. Anything you don’t
love, you can just fix it right up
with a bobby pin. We’re going to make this
one lay a little bit flatter against her
hard right there. And let me see. It looks fantabulous, darling. Are you ready for
the final spin? -Yeah. -OK. Here we go. It’s like you’re wearing
a wreath of twists. Looks great. Many of you guys
know that I have been busy filming some other
episodes called The Mom Minute. It’s over on the Mom’s
view, and it’s all these great little five-minute,
three-minute segments about parenting and kids. It’s been really
fun, so you guys should definitely check it out. I will put a link right
here so you can find it. And don’t forget to like,
comment, and share this video. And we’ll see you
guys next week. Bye. -Bye. [MUSIC PLAYING] You are, you are,
you are everything. -Now, I hope that when
my kids are at school, they’re enjoying
their education, doing what they’re supposed to
be doing, and studying hard. But I know my kids well enough
to know that’s not always going to be the case. Hi, Brooklyn. Watch her reaction. Hi, Brooklyn. I’m going to turn the vacuum on.
