1. Halo Updo on Natural Hair
This style is pretty popular, but if you have not seen it (or tried it) yet, check it out. It is essentially a jumbo flat twist going around the crown like a “halo”, hence the name. All you will need are stretched hair, a comb for parting, and a couple of bobby pins. This tutorial is really good at breaking down the styling.
2. Easy Pompadour Updo on Blown-Out Hair
Though this style is done on blown-out hair, you can modify it for stretched hair. What will you need? Bobby pins. Watch the video for easy step-by-step instructions.
3. Twisted in Knots Side Bun
Okay, now this style is not as complicated to create as it looks. Starting from stretched hair, you will form this side bun from two ponytails placed close together. You will need bobby pins, Ouchless bands, and a comb for parting.
4. Glammed-Up Plaits on Locs
Do you want to keep your locs up and protected? Then check this gorgeous updo created from plaited locs. The look can also be modified for you twist and braid wearers.
5. Easy Chunky Twists Updo
I love this look so much that I may actually try it soon! The style consists of chunky twists in the front and small twists in the back. You will need bobby pins, an Ouchless band, and product/tools to smooth down your edges (if you wish).
6. Casual Jumbo Twist Updo
This is another beautiful and easy jumbo twist updo to try, and guess what? No bobby pins are required! Watch the tutorial to see what I mean.
7. Vintage Styled Updo
I could not resist including another style tutorial from this lady because this vintage updo is just lovely. You will need stretched hair and bobby pins.
8. French Braid Updo on Locs
Here is another gorgeous loc updo and your locs do not have to be super long for this look. You will essentially start from two large french braids going from the back your head to the front. Check out the tutorial for more details!
Ladies, how have you been styling your hair this season? Will you try any of these looks?
