Take a 1 inch thick piece of hair in your hands and twist it.
Hold one tiny strand at the tip of the twist and push the remaining hair up into a ringlet on your head.
Wrap the remaining strand around the ringlet and use a bobby pin to pin the ringlet to your head.
To recreate the top image, grab a friend who can help you create and pin ringlets all the way around.

    Love Love Love! The look of this messey updo! And it’s super easy to create —fast too—which is always nice. But essentially I’m creating a series of knots in my hair when pushing it up. That’s what’s making the mess! ANd it is a mess. Mama mia!
