Easy Twisted Updo- Natural Hair Styles

I asked CharyJay to provide us 'styling challenged' folk with some easy yet elegant updo options. You know, no flat twisting, zig zag cornrowing or braiding upside down. So we start with her Twisted Overflow Up-do, enjoy!

Although I love CN and all things natural I am becoming a bit...frustrated...with the limited number of posts/vids for those of us with shorter hair. I am in a bit of an in-between stage and my 4b hair...with its major shrinkage... makes many posted styles nearly impossible. I can't possibly be the only person in this sinking boat...am I?

Super cute! Something different.

CharyJay said...

Thanks ladies for all the compliments! I'm glad you enjoy the style!

Frustrated Anonymous: I have older videos of styling tutorials when my hair was shorter if you'd like to take a look on YouTube. Furthermore, there are a lot of videos by other vloggers who have shorter hair with amazing styles.

Besides, you can always modify a style so it can suit your length or just use a video to inspire you to try something different. :o)

Very cute hairstyle. I'll have to give this a try. My hair isn't quite as long as yours so I'll have to modify the style some.

My hair is shorter than hers as well. But wow at the definition of her curls!! I liked how she had detailed information on the products she used. Well done tutorial.

I love watching CharJay on YouTube she is VERY informative! Her parodies are the best, hollywood needs to snap her up. I can't believe how much your hair has grown. Your hair is just Gorgeous so thick & beautiful!

Nice Char-Jay and since I wasn't able to make this comment on your site re your article on the makeup nazis I'll do so here :-)

I love makeup and its proper application, always have and I'm now 51! So, I say to all those so called make-up free natural nazis...MYOB and if you want to keep it natural, it's your perogative ((sung to the tune of Bobby Brown)) but some of ya'll need the extra help (dark undereye circles, etc.)--doesn't do the total appearance justice!

Very nice CharyJay. I'm going to try this tonight (sans the products, the ones I have will have to make do :) I'll have to look up your review on these products!

Kimberly said...

Since I'm on my own protective style challenge and needing cute updo's, I will be trying this.

I watch CharyJay's videos and they are produced very well. Her hair is gorgeous and she's always touting the benefits of Entwine Couture's products. I'm cool with that.

I want to try Entwine, but I am so tired of being burned by products that make my 4c twist outs HAH.

You know, hard as heck. Wirey. Broomstraw. Stiff. Steel Wool. Get my drift?

Has there been a CurlyNikki review of Entwine Couture's products?

If I buy them, will I get my heart broken again like it was with the Miss Jessie's puddings? (See descriptors above).

Crispety-cruncy helmet hair is NOT healthy.

This is a good video and great style. Very creative and pretty.

Pamela said...

Char Jay, your styles are always amazing!

@Frustrated Anonymous - I feel your pain. But, I've recently discovered that "stretching" my hair makes it easier to do some of the styles that I like on different blogs and youtube channels. It may not turn out exactly like theirs, but I modify the styles to suit my hair.

*applause* That style was GORGEOUS! And I really appreciate YouTubers taking the time to truly edit their videos so that they're easier to hear, see, and follow along. Thanks so much!

SaBrina said...

That hairstyle came out so pretty, and I love the natural shine that the hair has as well. The makeup is on point and like the earrings.

Shak said...

I'm totally trying this because I have been bored with my updos and afro puffs, and because of this I started blowing my hair our more when all I want to do is leave it be! I'm doing my variation of this style tonight! (And I have a wedding to go to this weekend too! It's on!)

TDE said...

I love this style. I am so looking forward to trying once my hair grows a little more! Great tip!

Jax said...

That was an excellent video CharyJay. Thank you for the tutorial!

chilid856 said...

I love the tutorial. Thanks for sharing the knowledge.

MrsWardy88 said...

My hair isnt as long as hers but I'm going to try it. :)

Barbara said...

What a pretty hairstyle. I wasn't familiar with CharJay before but I am going to find her on YouTube. I can't fix my hair in this hairstyle yet because my hair is nowhere near as long as hers. I am thinking of getting some natural looking hairpieces so that my style options aren't as limited and so I can keep my ends protected.
