My favourite quick and easy updo {hair tutorial}

Earlier this week one of my outfit posts featured this updo and on that same evening, we attended a birthday dinner. The girls loved the updo and asked for a step by step tutorial with photos…so tada – here it is đŸ™‚ Like I said in the outfit post, this up style is my favourite go-to hairstyle when I don’t have time in the mornings or I’m just not in the mood to straighten my hair.

STEP BY STEP HAIR TUTORIAL – AN EASY UP STYLE

The only two things you will need for this hairstyle are bobby pins and an elastic hair band. Start off with your hair brushed out.

Before

Part one section of your hair to the side and starting at the top, twist your hair upwards. As you twist, add in more sections of your hair until you reach the back of your head. Secure the twisted roll with a bobby pin and move to the other side.

Twisting the hair into the roll

Do the exact same thing on the other side – twist the hair in a roll starting from the front working your way towards the back of your head. Secure the roll with a bobby pin.

Do the same with the other side

With the two rolls on the side of your head secured with a bobby pin each, loosely braid your hair. Do not worry about creating a neat braid.

Braid your hair loosely

Secure the end of the braid with an elastic hair band, and then roll up the braid to create a bun. Secure the braid with bobby pins and if needed, add more pins to the rolled hair to keep it secure.
