I have long and very thick hair so often times even a low ponytail will trigger a small headache which is why you normally see my hair down in most photos. It's my favorite way to wear my hair, thank goodness, but one day I felt like trying something different. I remembered a simple but super cute updo I had seen online somewhere and although I didn't end up finding it I was able to pull it off by memory. I can't take credit for this tutorial but I hope that you find it fun and freeing! Oh, and if you're wondering, I went headache free with this stylish updo.
Second day hair will work best for this look. If your hair is looking a bit flat on top you can always tease it or add some dry shampoo to give it more volume. I also like to smooth away any frizz with styling cream. The one I used by Nexxus seems to be discontinued but John Frieda also has good options.
Choose your headband of choice and place it on the top of your head. I find this style works best with a thicker band. This one is soft and stretchy which will help to prevent headaches. Score!
I separate my hair into sections about this thick to prep it for folding over and under the headband. In total I probably separate about 8 sections of hair.
Before I wrap my hair over and under the headband, I fold the section of hair in half to make it easier to wrap around.
Now it's time for the wrapping around! There's no need to try and make it perfect, it's all about being quick with a result that looks effortless. Be sure to secure the sections with bobby pins (focusing especially on the middle and sides of your head) and hairspray of your choice!
The results are a beautiful and breezy updo. The fun part is, it will turn out slightly different each time you do it, especially when you have different textures to work with (ex: wavy, curly or straight). I've worn my hair like this a few times already and each time I've received several compliments leaving women inspired to try it themselves. It also reminded them of Downton Abbey and even Snow White!
What do you think? Will you try this easy updo yourself?
