How to Style a Twisted Updo

The twisted updo allows numerous variations. Whether you choose to make a side or middle parting, this hairstyle will definitely give you a stand-out look in an instant. Style it yourself and get ready to take center stage. Tailoring the twisted updo to suit you and the occasion is the key to pulling off this trend. From looser versions to slightly tighter ones, this look is hot and fun.

Start by applying some hair wax, then create the parting (deep side, side or center). Depending on the result you want to achieve, you can use the end of a rat tail comb and make a clean parting. Once this step is completed, roll the front section of one side into a twist and pin it at the nape of the neck.

After finishing with one side, repeat the same action on the opposite side. When both sides are done, loosely pull the hair back into a low ponytail. Next, twist hair up and tuck the ends in. As a final step, secure the updo into place using some pins and a quick spritz of hair spray. You don’t necessarily have to make a pony, just cross the twisted ends over each other and tuck them in. You can make this style your own by adding a cute hair accessory such as a hair comb.
