How to Do Easy, Pretty Updos

The Art of the DIY Updo: Only 8 Bobby Pins Required

Check out this pretty updo tutorial from OnSugar blog Beauty & The Blog:

Updos can be costly and keep you in the salon for hours. Not every occasion requires such posh styling. What you didn't know is that most updos can be created with a maximum of eight bobby pins. True story! Below is the how-to for this deconstructed 'do. Note, I did it two times. The beauty about this style is each time the updo is slightly different — organic beauty!

  1. Separate the hair in two sections.
  2. Twist each section in your hands.
  3. Cross over the sections and twist the ends together.
  4. Tuck and roll the ends, then secure pins in an 'X' formation.
