How-to Hairstyles: Easy Twisted Updo

New hair in under 5 mins? Twist and go with this easy updo!

Usher the updo in your styling routine with a simple twisted hair up look. This look is perfect for fixing your hair in the morning or just to get your locks up and out the way. Creating twisted updo hairstyles doesn’t need to be a hassle either. Get a salon-style messy updo finish in your own styling chair.

Follow this guide and achieve an easy updo – the perfect style for when you’re short on time. 


How to create an easy twisted updo


1. Split hair into four sections

2. Tightly twist each piece

3. Loosen each twist by pulling out random hairs

4. Coil back up to root and secure with pins

5. Repeat until all hair has been pinned up

6. Personalize your look


step one: Split hair into four sections

Take your hair and create four evenly sized sections – these sections will be the base of the twisted updo. 

step two: Tightly twist each piece

Starting from the bottom of the section, tightly twist the hair up towards the head. Repeat this for all four sections of hair. 

step three: Loosen each twist by pulling out random hairs

To create that messy style, begin to pull out random hairs from each section to loosen the twists.

step four: Coil back up to root and secure with pins

With one of the twisted sections, coil the hair back up to root and secure the twist into place using pins. 

step five: Repeat until all hair has been pinned up

Repeat this technique until all four sections have been pinned up at the root. 

step six: Personalize your look

To add that personalized touch to your twisted updo, be haphazard with your styling. Don’t be afraid to loosen your twists out more before pinning them up.
