Step By Step Updos Hairstyles
Twisted Bun
  • Take a dollop of hair pomade or styling gel and run through the entire length of your hair.
  • Divide the hair into two parts and secure it into ponytails, one in the center of the crown and another a little higher that the nape.
  • Divide the lower ponytail into small sections and twist it tight and secure it with pins around the ponytail.
  • Repeat the same procedure with the above ponytail.
  • When the hair is tucked, spray some hairspray to achieve a neat look.
  • Accessorize it with crystal pins, headbands or your choicest flowers.
Knotted Look
  • Comb your hair neatly and divide it into six parts.
  • Now, take one segment and divide it into a few other small sections. Then, twist the hair loosely to form a spiral on top of your crown.
  • Repeat the same procedure with the other segments too.
  • Secure the spiraled sections with a bobby pin.
  • Spray some hairspray to hold the hair in place.
  • Accessorize it with sparkly hair pins and jewels.
Looped Updo
  • Tie the hair into a ponytail in such a way that it should rest halfway between the nape and the top of the head.
  • Divide a section of hair at the top of the ponytail and tuck it with a pin.
  • Now, divide the rest of the ponytail into 6 or 8 equal sections.
  • Starting from the left, take each section of hair, one at a time and gently twist it under to form a big loop. Secure the loop with a pin.
  • Spray hairspray over the loops.
  • Unclip the top section and divide it into 4 equal sections.
  • Take one section and tuck it around the finger to form a tighter loop and pin it in a way, so as to form one side of the four clovers shaped loops.
  • Repeat the process with the 3 segments of hair.
  • Remember, these 4 small loops should rest above the lower bigger loops.
  • Complete the look by spraying the hairspray, to keep the style intact for a longer duration of time.
