Natural Updo: Twisted Side Bun

I experimented with a new style this week. To be honest when I first started doing my hair (sitting in bed no less) I had no idea what I was doing. But this once I parted my hair in preparation for something, I was looking through some blogs and found myself inspired by Tia of Her Best Hair by her Flat Twist out with Braids style.  I did a few things differently, but that was the style I was looking at to create something.

1. Started with freshly washed hair that was damp
2. parted my hair in five sections (including the bangs) having most of my hair on one side
3. Flat twisted the front sections of my hair towards the back
4. Flat twisted the back sections towards the side
Flat twist in the back

Flat twists in the front
5. Gathered all my hair into a side ponytail, used bobby pins to create the bun

I did so many twists because I wanted the bun to be as full as possible. I actually found a way to make it even fuller yesterday, but I forgot to take a picture (of course). All the hair also hides my terrible parting skills, especially since I didn't use a mirror. I moisturize my hair when I take the bun down every night.

Let me know what you think! I may be up for doing a video for this...hmm
