Twisted Updo
Align Center
What You'll Need:
  • A rat tail comb
  • Rubber bands
  • Hair/bobby pins

To start part you hair into a front and back half; secure the back half in a ponytail. Take 1/4 of the the front half of your hair off to both sides and braid/twist these sections. You can use a rubberband to hold them together. Take the remaining hair in the front section and create a loose flat twist with a zig-zag pattern, pin gaps together with hair pins then tuck the ends of the large flat twist and the braids/twists on either side under the large flat twist and pin in place. Release the back section of hair and put in large two strand twists; roll the ends & pin them down; there's no right or wrong way to pin them, just stick with whatever arrangement looks decent.

Twisted Braided Updo

What You'll Need:

  • A rat tail comb
  • Rubber bands
  • Hair/bobby pins
  • Hair moisturizer or gel

To start part you hair into a front and back half; secure the back half in a ponytail. Section off one-third of the front half and braid the hair into small/medium sized cornrows. Take the remaining two-thirds of the front section and two strand twist the hair going away from the cornrowed side. For the back half of the hair make a diagonal part starting high on the head and ending low; the objective is to leave out a section of hair on the top of the head that will be two strand twisted. Flat twist the hair below the diagonal part and secure twists with rubber bands. Connect the ends of the flat twists from the lowest to the highest and pin in place. Two strand twist the remaining loose section of hair. Use bobby pins to pin hair to one side. Using moisturizer or gel, twirl the ends of the two-strand twists around your finger to encourage curls & voila, you're done!
