Easy Long-Hair Updo for Bad Hair Days

Easy Long-Hair Updo for Bad Hair Days

Your go-to updo for work, weddings, or any other formal / semi-formal occasions!

You will need:
  • Hair-colored elastic ponytail holder (thin, clear ponytail holders also work)
  • One small butterfly hair clip
  • Wynsome Studios’ Small Classic Pony Cuff
  • Optional: Wynsome Studios’ Classic Pony Cuff Pendant
  • Bobby pins (multiple) 
  1. Start with dry hair brushed smooth. We tend to wear this hairstyle if we've washed our hair the night before and its gone a bit weird by the morning. If needed, use a small amount of hair oil or leave-in conditioner to smooth fly-aways.

  2. Twist a small - medium top section of one side of your hair around to the center of the back of your hair. Secure with a small butterfly clip and repeat on the other side.
