The Twisted Updo Hairstyle Tutorial

I obviously love updos (as a mom with an active son, hair away from my face is a great thing, and updos and buns are just so pretty). Here is another pretty updo bun hairstyle tutorial featuring one of my favorite hair styles, the twisted bun hairstyle to the side, a hairstyle that also looks great for bridesmaids or for an evening out because of how sophisticated and simple it looks. Just add some sparkly earrings and an elegant dress and you are ready for a lovely evening out!

How To Create the Twisted Updo Bun Hairstyle To The Side Tutorial

1. Start with hair down and loose. This will work with all hair types, but hair should be combed through whether straight or curly.

2. At bottom corner (easier to start from left if you are right-handed) start twisting hair upward and inward close to nape of neck.

3. Continue on toward other side of neck, and pin twisted hair in place. Turn up and around and start twisting hair back toward the original start side.

4. Create a figure eight with twisted hair and pin in place.

5. For an evening out, a flower pinned by the twisted bun and some loose tendrils around the face make for a softer, prettier look that is also dressier. A narrow, glittery headband placed lightly on top (don’t brush hair back with headband) or a sparkly barrette used to fasten the twisted bun in place are also great options.

  • What a good idea. I got a little confused on how to do #4 but I’ll have to play around with my daughter’s hair (my hair is too short).ReplyCancel

      You twist the hair all the way down (to the end) and after you are done twisting it lengthwise, turn it around on itself to make a figure eight like I did (it looks like an 8 lying on its side)…you can also do other things with it, but the twisted figure 8 is simple enough to be elegant, and it’s easier for most people to do.

      Hope that helps!ReplyCancel

  • Looks cool, but a little difficult. What kind of difficulty level would you give it? I like your tutorial style – it’s something we love to see at, you should come share with us!ReplyCancel

      It’s a surprisingly easy hairstyle…I’m not particularly dexterous so all the beauty tips and hair styles I do are on the easy side, and this hair style tutoorial takes a few moments, literally.ReplyCancel

    Awesome! But it seems a little bit difficult to me.ReplyCancel

  • That is SO cute! I don’t know if I’m talented enough to pull that off {even with your awesome tutorial} but I think I’m going to try!ReplyCancel

  • Love this hairdo. Unfortunately, I doubt mine would come out as neat as yours if I gave this a try.ReplyCancel
