20 Formal Updos for the Most Exciting Days in Your Life

19. Romantic Twist Hair Formal Updo

Here is a deceptively complicated looking pony. But take a minute to look through the instructions. Brush hair straight back. Then, pull half of the top hair back into a tight twist. Pin it above the right ear. Pulling some hair from beneath the gathered portion, twist and pin to above the left ear. Keep repeating with the lower sections of hair, pinning as you go. Finish when you’ve twisted all the strands and have some ends to leave natural at the bottom.
