Today I have another amazing hair tutorial to share with you from the amazing duo behind the blog, Irrelephant. These two ladies recently challenged themselves to see if they could create an updo with only 2 bobby pins. This updo even survived an evening ride in a Jeep(no top or doors so lots and lots of wind). Enjoy!
Start by twisting your hair and spraying it with a bit of hair spray, we came to find that it keeps those layered hair cuts tamed.
Twist your hair into a knot. Literally. Then pull it tight! (at this time, also fluff your crown- to make sure you have volume.) Hair Spray again.
Grab the left over tail and twist that slightly (like step 1), then twist it around the knot.
Bobby pin the end of the tail with the knot and your hair. The second bobby pin is used for securing. Pin it opposite of the previous one so it looks like an “X”
This tutorial is meant for that 2nd or 3rd day hair, dirty hair is best for molding and staying as desired. If you have clean hair, it will be silky and it tends to slip out of anything and you will become frustrated. Before starting hair, try spraying dry shampoo or texturizing spray on roots and ends to give texture. We like: Bumble and bumble dry spun finish and surf spray, or Oribe texturizing spray.
