Twisted Updo for Wet Hair

Twisted Updo |

Twisted Updo forΒ Wet Hair is something I threw together when I was running out the door one day.

This summer I have decided to take a pledge from hot tools. I officially started on June 1st and will not use blow dryers, curling irons, or flat irons for three whole months, until September 1st.

I am determined to get my hair as healthy as possible which means I also won’t be dyeing it during that time either. I’m not gonna lie, I am slightly afraid of looking like a ragamuffin halfway through. I know this is the perfect opportunity to think up new hairstyles that won’t require any heat, like this one for example! I’m taking it day by day, so wish me luck; healthy hair, here I come!

Follow these steps to get this style:

Step 1 / Begin with a section of hair, from the left ear up to the part. Twist the hair upwards and bring it across the back of the head.

Step 2 / Wrap the twist so it creates a little halfΒ bun and pin it with hair pins.

Step 3 / Take the leftover hair from the bun and add in a portion of hair, from the top of the head, to create a new twist.

Step 4 / Wrap the twist around again to create another little half-wrapped bun, directly next to the first one, securing it with hair pins.

Step 5 / Pick up the rest of the hair from the bun and add in more hair, from above the right ear back to the bun, twisting it upwards as before.

Step 6 / Create another half bun directly below the first two and pin it in place.

Step 7 / With the rest of the hair, create one last twist.

Step 8 / Wrap the hair into a bun and secure it in place with hair pins.

Voila! A perfect hairdo for days on the run or when you just don’t feel like pulling out the blow dryer.

    Oh I wish I saw this earlier! I ran out the door the other day with hair that was still soaking. I realized that throwing it up into a bun would look less messy than wet hair strewn everywhere but it was totally plain compared to this!

    Cool! I’m growing out my pixie cut and always look for no heat ideas to get my hair as long as possible the healthy way.
    I wonder what you’re hair looked like once it was dry and you let it down again. It was sure wavy, was it a good sort of wavy?

      Haha, no it’s a bad wavy (: haha, or I’m just picky and not used to it. Hopefully once it’s longer it’ll look great down and natural. fingers-crossed!
