Our resident All Things Hair YouTuber Nikki Phillippi is back with a bang for her second Style It On challenge. If you’ve been closely following the series – and saw our fave curly-haired lady Mini Marley’s latest video – you’ll know that this month’s theme is updos. So, Nikki took it on by showing us how to create a twisted updo for short hair – which we think was a great idea, because as you probably know, short to medium-length hair can be rather tricky to style up.
Needless to say, if you often struggle to style your short hair for both fun and formal occasions, you’ve come to the right place, because once again Nikki has come to the rescue with this handy hair tutorial.
Watch her video above to learn how to create a sophisticated twisted updo for short hair, and read our step-by-step guide below for more details. Ready-set-Style It On!
How to get Nikki Phillippi’s twisted updo for short hair
Brush and prep hair.
Once dry, brush through your hair to remove any knots or tangles. Then, spritz your mane with some TRESemmé Instant Refresh Translucent Dry Shampoo (£3.99*) to help add grip for when you backcomb your hair later on.
Divide hair in half.
Create a low bun.
Tip: If you have short to medium-length hair like Nikki, use an extra few bobby pins to help hold your short strands in place.
Backcomb some more.
Twist and wrap.
Curl the front sections.
Set with spray.
And there you have it, a stunning, sophisticated bun that you can easily do on short hair!
