Updo for Straight Hair

Heyyy-ooo It’s Friday and it’s time for another hair tutorial! Today I am happy to announce that I’ve got all the straight-haired girls out there covered. Although, this would work on pretty much any type of hair. Most tutorials I see always start with really pretty curled hair, which is nice sometimes. But sometimes we need an updo for straight hair. A style you can just do, without taking the time to curl it all. Can I get an amen?

Simple updo for Straight Hair

It’s actually very easy and I show you exactly how to do it in the video. It’s a knot-tying technique that I used to get the buns in the back. It’s the same technique I used here, but I think the video shows it clearer.

If you’re in a pinch, don’t have time to curl your hair, it’s messy or even dirty, this style is perfect. You twist a knot and pin, twist a knot and pin. I think the whole thing could take you about 10 minutes. This is the perfect style for a holiday party too! Check out the half up version over at Still Being Molly that I posted yesterday. I posted with pictures though, so you can combine that tutorial with this video and you’ve got two styles up your sleeve!
