Double Twist-Around Bun | Updo Hairstyles

Here is another super cute bun hairstyle, that is perfect for girls of all ages. It is one of our easiest undo hairstyles as well.

Twistback Bun Hairstyles

This hairdo uses two French twistbacks. Begin by making the twist backs from the front, adding hair as you go until you reach the back.

Then, take the first twist back and twist it until the strand begins to wrap around itself into a bun. Slightly secure it with a hairband so that you can do the next twistback. Create the second twist back in the same manner and wrap the second twisted strand around the first bun.

In this tutorial, I used Goody Spin Pins to help secure the bun {which saved me from having to use an extra 5-6 bobby pins}.

Cute Bun Hairstyles

I also created this hairstyle to be a little loose, because this is the style that is totally in right now… but you could do this tighter for ballet, dance, or sports hairstyles. It will look super cute!


Items Needed: Brush, 1 elastic hairband, 2 large Goody Spin Pins, a few bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

    I’ve tried it on my hair. And my classmates said that it was pretty 🙂

  • Does that 3D braid stay? It looks like it would take longer than 5 minutes to do, but it looks cool. Love your tutorials and would love for you to share your beauty/hair/makeup tips with us Taaz.com – just post under the Trends section. 🙂

    You should do a Do it yourself section because most of these hairstyles I can’t do my self. But it is cute!

  • Rachel

    Hey could you do some hairstyles you could do with you hair down. Kinda confusing. Oh could you also tell what and where I can get heat protectant. Well you used it in some of your videos, you put it on before you straighten your hair. I forgot what you called it. I love your website it taught me to do hair thanks.

  • “Double Twist-Around Bun” — Wow.. I love it a lot. It’ll be my hair style in my next party.

  • Katy

    I really love this hairstyle, I wore it to school and got so many compliments!

  • Cara

    Woohoo I’ve never been first comment before! Mindy, do you have any tips on how to get shoulder-length hair into a ponytail? I always have to use a multitude of clips and bobby pins. Plus even after that it doesn’t even look that great! please help!
