When we think prom we think curls. Whether the hair is loose or fashioned in an updo, cascading big barrel curls seem to be the go-to style, but sometimes we want something new. Many women with textured hair are looking for something different, stylish, and affordable. And with numerous bad experiences, many women with textured hair are writing off hair salons and using YouTube for self-taught hairstyles. Here's a quick and simple updo that is fitting for any occasion.

What You Need


  1. Start with dry hair. For less frizz, start with hair that is either one day old or freshly washed, moisturized, and gently dried with a diffuser.
  2. Part hair from the middle of the hairline and fasten a rubber band at the roots.
  3. Section the hair at crown horizontally from ear to ear, gather the hair from that ponytail, and tie a rubber band at the roots.
  4. Grab the base of the ponytail and pull it through the root.
  5. Repeat steps 3-4 for two more sections.
  6. Fashion your hair ornament where you would like.
