Today’s updo is super feminine (perfect for V-day rendezvous!), but is actually so much simpler than it appears. This twisting technique can be adapted into totally different looks, too: instead of using five smaller sections the way this detailed updo does, try experimenting with an eye-catching ponytail made from two larger sections. All you need to master are the basics: gather hair like you’re putting it half up, twist, push up for volume, and pin! So what do you think… would you try this look for your next night out?
- Section hair at the top, gather angling backward and twist to the right. Gently push hair forward to create height, and pin to secure.
- Gather another section of hair below the first, just above the ears, and twist to the lift. Gently push hair forward and pin to secure.
- Continue sectioning layers of hair and twisting in alternating directions until you’re left with just the “tail”.
- Twist tail and tuck upward to create a bun. Secure with pins and spray all over.
