A fancy updo hairstyle is a look every girl should have in her hairstyling repertoire, especially during the holiday season. We all know that an updo is the quintessential go-to hairstyle for any occasion, but when it comes to actually creating a fancy and trendy hairstyle —like this twisted half-up ponytail — that we saw worn by a celebrity or in the pages of glossy, without a tutorial, our dream hairstyle quickly turns into a hot mess.
This season, no need to try your hand at a hairstyle without any direction because we’re here to help! Read below to learn how you can create this chic, festive twisted updo hairstyle for the holidays.
Take a small section of hair on both sides of your head and twist toward the back of your hair. Secure your twists with a hair tie. Pro tip: Use a clear elastic band, or a black to blend in with your hair color. If you’re feeling funky for the holidays, give your twisted half-up ponytail a cool twist with colorful hair elastics.
Create 2-3 more twists and secure.
Tuck your ends.
When you get to your last twist, tuck the ends into your hair to blend it into the rest of your look.
