5 Minute Hair: Pulled Back Twisted Maiden Braids

5 Minute Hair: Pulled Back Twisted Maiden Braids

I am so excited to bring you a brand new series I am starting called…..

Drum roll  please…


I know you are all just as busy as I am. Some days ain’t nobody got time to do their hair! That is why I am going to be sharing some of my very favorite hair styles with you that only take 5 minutes to do! I will be sharing one of these styles with you once a month! They will have step by step pictures AND sometimes a video so you can totally master them! I filmed a video that accidentally deleted for this hairstyle, but I have confidence that you can master it without the video!

To start out the series, I am going to share my go to hair style for busy days… Pulled back twisted maiden braids!

Five Minute Pulled Back Twisted Maiden Braid Hair Tutorial on

The only thing you need for this hair style are bobby pins!

You will want to have dry hair with your hair parted down the middle. My hair is naturally curly so this is what my hair looks like when I dry it (pretty much like a country music star), but this style would work with straight hair too. I also have done this a number of times with wet hair too. It can be done, but it just doesn’t look as good. This is also a hairstyle that can be done with or without bangs too. If you don’t have bangs, the braid will just be right next to your face, instead of behind your  bangs.

Simple hair tutorial

You will need to take a small section from the top of your head. It will almost create a triangle shape from your part to the edge of the part.

Split that section into 3 smaller sections and braid it. Secure the end of the braid with a bobby pin.

Now take a section on the other side of your head the same size as the last section and repeat the steps you just did.

How to pancake a braid on

Go through and pancake your braids to make them look thicker. To do this, just hold onto the bottom of the braid and tug at the sections of the braid to make them bigger. This is something that can be skipped if you don’t have time, but I do really like how much thicker it makes the braids look when it is done.

How to do a braided twist hairstyle on

If the bobby pins didn’t already fall out of the ends when you were pancaking them, take the bobby pins out and hold one braid in each hand.

Tie your hair around itself, like you are starting a knot. Instead of tying it again to create a knot, keep looping the ends around the same direction to create a twisted look.

How to create twisted maiden braids on

Pin the braid to your head in enough places to make it feel secure. Tuck the ends of the braids into the twist somewhere and bobby pin them in so you can’t see them.

Now you are done and can get on with your busy lives!
