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.

Side note… If you follow along on Instagram, you might have seen the quick 5 minute curly hair tutorial I shared on Instagram Stories a couple of weeks ago. We plan to do more of those for different hair types and would love to hear what you think! What are some of your biggest hair struggles?! What would you most love to see in anew hair tutorial?
