Easy Up-Do Hair Tutorial that Anyone Can Do

Over the summer, the wonderful ladies over at Updos for I Dos created an easy woven up-do that became a very popular post here on 15 Minute Beauty! Somehow I was able to convince them (ok, maybe it wasn’t very hard) that sharing another easy up-do would be a good thing!

Just in time for the holidays, here’s another easy (but super complex looking) up do that you can create yourself for your holiday work party or maybe heading to a wedding. If you do it, share a pic!

Prep: Make sure hair is tangle free. Give hair a quick spray of shine spray. You will only need 2 ponytail holders, bobby pins and a comb.

Step 1: Divide hair into two sections. Secure top section with a ponytail holder. Secure bottom section with a second ponytail holder.

Step 2: Take top ponytail and wrap under the bottom ponytail.

Step 3: Tuck ends under top ponytail and secure with bobby pins.

Step 4: Twist bottom ponytail in a clockwise motion and bring up to top ponytail. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 5: Continue to wrap loose ends around top and right section of top ponytail. Continue wrapping (will depend on length of hair) hair back towards bottom ponytail.

Step 6: Secure any loose ends with pins. Give a final round of hairspray.
