Lately, I’ve really been loving twisted updos for the fall/winter protective styling season. It’s fun to see how other naturals manipulate their hair to create these fabulous updos. Plus, there isn’t much of a learning curve because the hairdo is more dependent on our own personal creativity and style.
Here are 3 little reasons twisted updos are awesome:
1. They can last a week or two, which cuts down on styling time and hair manipulation.
2. They help keep the hair moisturized without having to reapply often since the hair is tucked away.
3. Upon takedown, it’s easy to transition this style into another (if you so desire) by simply adding misting with water and re-styling.
When watching the tutorials below, still keep it interesting by adding your own flair and doing what you feel like looks best on you: this could be adding a bang, a little eyeshadow for a pop of color, an accessory, etc. Having fun with your style makes protective styling easier!
As always, be sure to start on freshly washed, conditioned, deep conditioned, and detangled hair.
