Easy Twisted Updo Tutorial

By Makenna Ashley

Are you wanting a gorgeous updo, but you can't seem to figure out how to do it? This easy twisted updo tutorial breaks it down into simple steps, so anyone can achieve an updo sure to turn heads! You will need three clear elastics, and a whole lot of bobby pins. Using my Cashmere Hair clip in extensions gives this easy twisted updo a much fuller and more dramatic updo, which really helps. This look is perfect for fall and winter paired with a chunky blanket scarf and a cozy sweater!  easy-twisted-undo-2

Step 1: Divide hair into three even sections. Tie off each section with clear elastic. Get these sections as low and as close together as you can.

Step 2: Twist the middle section and start to form into a bun. The goal is for the hairstyle to have a tousled appearance, so the messier the better for the buns.

Step 3 & 4: Secure the twisted hair with bobby pins. 

Step 5: Twist one of the sides into a bun, overlapping with the first bun.

Step 6: Repeat the process to the remaining side, securing it all with bobby pins and overlapping each bun.

Tip: You want to make sure to overlap your buns so that the hairstyle looks conducive and in one large tousled section, rather than all separate buns. To hide the bobby pins, use a weaving motion to go over and under sections of hair. If you have front bangs or pieces framing your face, giving them a soft curl will complete this look.
