A Rope Twist Updo for Curly Hair (in 5 Minutes)

In the past, I’ve shared everything from double buns to reverse crown braids in the hair tutorial department, but up to now all of our models have had relatively straight hair. This rope twist updo is different though -its for all the curly haired readers out there. Said in my best smooth jazz DJ voice. 🙂 And I’m excited to share it.

It works really well for a casual or fancy occasion, and no one will be the wiser that it only took a few minutes to do. Click through for the step by step instructions on this easy as pie hair tutorial.

How to make your own rope twist updo

Step 1: Section your hair off into three sections. And secure just the section in the middle (back of the head) with a rubber band. Then twist into a low bun and secure with bobby pins.

Step 2: Then, take one of the sections that is still down, separate it into two parts and twist each part separately. Next, twist the two parts together, as shown in the photo. Wrap that section around the bun and secure with bobby pins.

Step 3: Repeat step 2 with the opposite side and secure with bobby pins once again. Add hairspray, if desired.

The IG Stories tutorial that we did a while back would have been perfect, Michelle. It works for any hair length.

I was thinking about cutting my waist length naturally curly hair really short lately. After seeing this post, I have some new inspiration for my hair. I rarely wear it down, a bun or pullback twist is my go to, I really don’t like hair in my face, this style is great! Thanks for the share.
