To complete this style, I first made a circle part about an inch from the girl's hairline that went all the way around her head. I banded the rest of the hair into a ponytail. I sectioned the hair around the hairline into square inch sections, more or less. I dampened and combed the hair, banded it at the base of each section, divided the section in two, and twisted. When I got to the ends I twirled the ends. When I completed that circle, I sectioned off the next circle and repeated. There were four circles total. I think it was around 40 twists. These looked ok hanging down, but would have looked better with smaller sections, and I was worried that they'd be ruined at daycare. So up they went.
The twists lasted a week worn up in a ponytail every day. At the end of the week I was anxious to see what the twist-out would look like. That's next.
