Curly Hair Updo Tutorial

Check out our curly hair updo tutorial right here!

I’ve been doing a lot of African-American/black updo hairstyles because they make fabulous protective styles.

We have done several easy updos, so this is one for more advanced braiders!


A Pretty Little Updo!

For braiding the hair you’ll need:

Products used:

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

Great protective hairstyle for hair of any length

Step One:

The first thing I did was part B’s hair in half, slightly off centered. I clipped the left half out of the way and began cornrowing her hair towards that middle part, changing from a cornrow to a rope twist when I ran out of room to make the braid stick to her head.

Step Two:

I added a cute little accent braid by dropped a small piece of hair out of one of my braids, clipping it out the way, and then continuing to cornrow/rope twist. Pictured left is an accent piece before it’s been braided.

Step Three:

After that, I braided that little chunk of hair down to the very bottom and added a few beads to it. This is optional, you can also curl it with a roller!

Step Four:

This is what her hair looked like when I’d braided and rope twisted half of her head. I LOVE the way that these rope twists look like. I will definitely do more braid/rope twist combinations in the future!

Step Five:

Once one side had been completed, I went ahead and started on the other side. I did a freestyle pattern (like always), but feel free to get all matchy-matchy with the sides if that’s what your little heart desires.

Step Six:

Once B was all braided and twisted up, I went ahead and did a Dutch braid up the back of her head. I used bobby pins to pin and secure her pompadour section the way that I liked it.

I really hope you like this natural hair updo! 

We got A LOT of positive feedback on our Facebook page, so I’m super excited for you all to get to see the finished results.
