The win­ter weath­er is still here, and you’ve run out of pro­tec­tive style ideas.  Well, there is no need to wor­ry.  Here are eight pro­tec­tive updos for inspi­ra­tion:

By Chin­we of Hair and Health

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?

I like “2. Easy Pom­padour Updo on Blown-Out Hair” also. I am prac­tic­ing the criss cross­ing of the back of the hair because I know I can use that por­tion of this hair­style to give my style a very spe­cial look. (If you know the cor­rect name of this criss cross­ing please post it so I can research it.) But for the front I will pin up the sides like she did but instead of a pom­padour I will do a mass of three-strand twists until my hair grows to a length that I think a pom­padour would look good… Read more »

4c girls CAN wear the first hair style with­out a lot of hair stretch­ing dra­ma. I have true 4c hair. I did “1 Halo Tuto­ri­al” in about 10 min­utes. First, I got a chair to sit down in front of the mir­ror so I would not rush the twist­ing of my hair. Then I pulled my hair down in the direc­tion that she brushed her her (with more plan­ning I could have sprayed and plait­ed my hair last night in the direc­tion that she brushed her hair. I could have done this last night in about 10–15 min­utes). Sec­ond, I… Read more »

I’m blown away by the options to choose from. They look hard to do and requires lots of prac­tice. They are all my favorite. Janelle mon­ae got most of the girls doing the pom­padour, she’s a star.

All of the­se are cute! I’m gonna prac­tice a few of the­se espe­cial­ly #1 and 2. I am a suck­er for quick updos.

1 and 7 look love­ly but I’d need heat or lots of thread­ing to achieve them.
