Okay, we’ll admit it: We envy those of you who have been blessed with curly hair. While you ladies have it made in the hair department — volume and lift and body, oh my! — we know it’s not always easy to style your curls. We’ve got good news, though: This super simple and polished updo takes no time to style, can look casual *or* fancy and works on a slew of hair types. From deep curls to loose waves and everything in between, this flirty ‘do is perfect for your next holiday party, a day at the office or on Christmas morning.
STEP 1: MAKE A HIGH-RISE PONY
First, create a high ponytail at the center part of your crown. Go as high as you want!
STEP 2: DO THE TWIST
Then, holding your pony upright, twist that ish up! Twist, twist, twist.
STEP 3: ROLL IT BACK
Next, roll the ponytail backward to create an instant bun. This styling tip not only creates a quick and easy updo, but also adds enviable fullness to your bun regardless of your hair’s texture and density. Score!
STEP 4: SET THE STYLE IN PLACE
Time to secure your ‘do. Pin the bun in place with a few hairpins, but leave the ends out. This intentionally imperfect look keeps the style modern and still gives your curls room to shine.
See how fast you can style this look — it’ll become your new go-to ‘do for when you want to look pulled together but have five minutes flat (or less!) to spend on your look. Every gal needs a hairstyle like this to rely on!
