When looking for an updo hairstyle for prom, I scoured over Pinterest for days looking inspiration. It was hard to find one that I liked, so I brought my hairstylist multiple pictures and together, we figured out I wanted a twisted updo with a lot of pieces and some hair left in front.
Here is the process. My hair was sectioned and twisted in various ways, eight different times.
In the end, we decided I had left too much hair out front, so we twisted another piece, around the side and secured it into one of the back twists. It sort of looked like a bohemian style crown.
It only took about 35 minutes from start to finish. The secret to a successful updo is unwashed and unconditioned hair. I washed my hair one day prior to the Prom, but didn't condition it that day. Working with "dirty" hair is easier and it stayed better.
I plan to wear a similar style for homecoming, the winter formal and a wedding I have coming up this fall. I need to get back to Pinterest for more inspiration for my Senior prom next year.
Can you tell I had a blast at Prom?
