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?

  1. Section hair at the top, gather angling backward and twist to the right. Gently push hair forward to create height, and pin to secure.
  2. 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.
  3. Continue sectioning layers of hair and twisting in alternating directions until you’re left with just the “tail”.
  4. Twist tail and tuck upward to create a bun. Secure with pins and spray all over.
