I love a cute little up do. One that you can look absolutely chic in, wear it to work and transition to evening dinner. Wear it to the farmers market on Saturday or even to church on Sunday.
This 10 minute twisted up updo caught my eye last night, it was done by the ChicNatural and to me it is totally adorable. Before I share the video here are a few tips on how to pick the right up do for all occasions.
1. Know what works for your signature look
If you know that having a pompadour or a bun is what you are most comfortable with, then build your updo style around that one thing. That way you can wear it with confidence and still protect your hair all at the same time.
2. Choose the right holding product
If I had the choice I would avoid gels all together and go with butters* that have a little hold when I want my updos to last. But granted different people prefer different levels of hold so the most important thing when picking your products is moisture and keeping the style frizz free.
Less is more so if you plan wear the style for a long time, focus more on edge ‘control’. Use light healthy butters* to keep your edges neat while rocking the style for a while.
3. Do something that protects your ends
An updo that keeps your ends tucked away is the perfect chic protective style. What makes it perfect is that you look great wearing it and you are doing something great for the most fragile portions of your hair.
Twist updo’s do a great job of protecting the length and ends of the hair, but a simple roll and tuck can do the same thing as long as you ensure that your ends are rolled inward and not exposed.
