No one can deny the versatility and elegance of updo hairstyles.

We are head over heels with all those charming updos, yet one of them deserves special attention and it is the twisted version. How romantic and simple this hairstyle is! If you want a sophisticated, relaxed and easy-to-style hairstyle, the twisted updo is for you!

How to Style a Twisted Updo
Twisted updos are the new versions of the braids. They look chic for any occasion, whether you are getting ready for a special night out or just have had a bad hair day and need some relaxed and easy hairstyle. It’s fun, soft, young and voguish and is the best go-to style for a quick hair fix. In addition to all these pluses, the twisted updo is so easy to sport without any special skills and tools. Learn how to style a twisted updo in an instance and wear it day or night without giving the impression of trying too hard.

The twisted updo itself comes in so many versions, from tousled and effortless ones to more elegant, polished ‘dos. Whether you choose to make a side or middle parting, a looser version or a slightly tighter one, this hairstyle can definitely help you stand out in the crowd.

To start styling a twisted updo, apply some hair wax, then create the parting (deep side, side or center). Depending on your choice, you can also turn to a rat tail comb to make a clean parting. Once done with this step, roll the front section of one side into a twist and pin it at the nape of the neck. Repeat the same action on the opposite side. Once both sides are done, loosely pull the hair into a low ponytail and start twisting the hair up, tucking the ends in. As a final step, secure your updo into the place with bobby pins and apply some hair spray.

It’s not necessary to make a ponytail: simply cross the twisted ends over each other and tuck them in. You can also personalize this style by adding some cute hair accessory, such as a hair comb.
