A Natural Updo for Work or Play

Hi Nik!

Here’s a style that I recently did that I am definitely putting in rotation! It’s a nice casual updo for work, or school or whenever!

First, on my DRY hair, I made a part from ear to ear. I then double strand flat twisted using Cantu Shea Butter (starting at my face and working toward the crown).
I secured each flat twist with a bobby pin as I went. When all the twists were complete, I took the pins out and used a cloth covered hair scrunchy and gathered all the twists to form a pony tail (so it’s like a half up/half down ‘do at this time).
Next, with the other half of my hair, I made another pony tail in the back of my head.
I then separated each ponytail into sections and basically pinned each section into big curls all over, overlapping some of them to create more volume and a care free look.
I added two flower pin accessories and viola! A quick updo!
