Submit a photo of your updo hairstyle here.
This simple updo literally takes only about 5 minutes to do! It is sophisticated, classy, and it will work great for formal events, as well as for work or play. Just make sure that your hair is long enough to put in a low ponytail and still have 4-5 inches of hair hanging out of the ponytail.
- An elastic ponytail holder
- Bobby pins colored the shade of your hair
Use the elastic ponytail holder and pull all of your hair into a low ponytail.
Separate the hair above the ponytail holder so that you make a hole.
Keeping the hole open, grab the ponytail and pull it up and through the hole.
Once the ponytail is pulled through and down, your hair should look like this:
Take the ponytail ends that are hanging down and begin to twist this hair until it starts to coil upon itself. Let it start to tuck up and under itself.
Take the bobby pins and secure all portions of the coiled-up twist to your head. Don't worry if the ends of the twist hang out (such as seen below), we will tuck them in and pin them up in the next step.
Tuck all loose hairs and ends under the twist and bobby-pin to your head. Continue to place bobby pins until it feels secure. Hairspray generously.
