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.
3 little reasons twisted updos are awesome
- They can last a week or two, which cuts down on styling time and hair manipulation.
- They help keep the hair moisturized without having to reapply often since the hair is tucked away.
- 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.
