Victorian upstyle for hair Tip: Remember to pull your twist back loosely. Also, once the twist is secured the ends of the twist will be hanging down in the path of the next twist. Simply secure the next twist over the ends.
Step 1: Beginning on the right side of your head, section a two inch by one-inch portion of hair along the hairline. Pull hair back and twist the section, pulling twisted hair to the back center of the head. The twist should remain on he surface of the unused hair.
Step2: Follow the direction in step one for the left side of the head. The twists should meet in the back at the center of the head.
Step3: Secure the twists together with covered elastic.
Step4: Section a one-inch deep by two-inch long portion of hair from the right side of your head just behind the ear and twist to the back as noted in step1. Do the same on the left side of the head.
Step5: Gather the two twisted sides together in the back of your head just below the first twist. Secure the second set of twists together with an elastic.
Step6: Continue the same process in steps 1-3 down the length of your hair.
Step7: After all twists are secure. It’s time to accessories: flowers, ribbon, gems are all nice additions to this look.
