Black Updo Hairstyles

As requested, another one of my black updo hairstyles!

This updo hairstyle is great for school or as a protective hairstyle.

Or, if you’re like me and you can’t wear your hair down all the time because it drives you crazy!

This one is a little bit different than my usual curly hair updos just because it’s really fast.

Remember that quick hairstyles can be dressed up really fast by adding some “hair pretties” in it. Hope you love it!

For braiding the hair you’ll need:

As always, I started with clean, detangled, stretched hair.

I made this one into a quick youtube video! Enjoy!

Helpful Tips On Braiding Your Own Hair

* The first thing I wanna say is not to get discouraged when you first start flat twisting/cornrowing your hair. It can be kind of difficult, especially getting to the very top of your head.

*I never ever, ever, ever do flat twists going straight back because it’s super hard to do that on the very top of your head. I always do my flat twists on an angle. It’s easier for me.

*Make sure you give yourself enough time so you’re not rushing. Actually, I prefer to give myself more time than I actually need so I can take as many breaks as I want to.

*I like to eat (you probably weren’t expecting that) so I always give myself lots of snacks while I’m doing my hair. And by the way, fruit snacks and fruit roll-up’s are really good!

*The first couple times I did my hair I had to take it back out again because I ended up braiding too tightly. Be careful of this and take out any braids that are too tight because they can damage your hair, or ever pull it out!

I hope you enjoyed this page and keep an eye out for many more black hair updos!
