My Fair Lady ~ Vintage Updo Tutorial

I'm feeling absolutely blessed at the moment! One of the reasons for this is I just got to spend 2 days with my best friend, YAY! We had so much fun just spending time together, I even gave her a mini makeover and did her hair into this vintage updo!
So I thought I'd share a tutorial on how to do it so that all of you can do this fun and easy yet pretty hairdo!


What You'll Need:
Hair Elastics
Hair Brush
Curling Iron (If you have naturally curly hair you probably won't need one)
LOT's of bobby pins
Optional: Pearl bobby pins, decorated hair combs, etc.


Instructions:
Step One~ You want to start of by brushing your hair. Then it's time to add some texture! You can accomplish this by curling your hair with a curling iron into some loose curls. (If you have naturally curly hair you can skip this step, yet if you have frizzy curls you might want to curl it though, to give it a more finished look.)
Step Two~ Make 7 ponytails with your hair elastics, but leave your bangs out if you have any and a few loose strands to curl later. You want to make three in the top row, and four in the bottom row. This will create a slight Zig Zag. (If you'd like smaller twist, simply make more ponytails) Note: If you want a bit of volume, loosen some hair from the top row.
Step Three~ Time to Twist! Taking a ponytail, twist it in one direction, then wrap it into a bun going the same direction. Taking your bobby pins, use as many as you need to secure the twist! Continue doing this with every ponytail all around your head. Note: Make sure NOT to twist them to tight, since you want that soft vintage look.
Step Four: Taking your bangs, loosely glide them over your head just above the twists. Taking a bobby pin secure the end of your bangs in between your twists. This will create a beautiful side swept look.
Now taking your curling iron, quickly touch up any of your loose strands.
Step Five: Nowt if you want to make your hair look even more special, add some pearl bobby pins, hair combs and just anything pretty! But remember, sometimes less is more!


If you had any trouble doing this hairstyle, the video above should give you a good idea of what you're supposed to do.

  2. btw, may I ask what font you have used here? It's very pretty but also quite relaxed and 'natural' if one can say that about a font! (chuckles)

  3. Ooops... wrong post order. (laughs at herself) I wanted to say that this hair style is lovely. It looks like it came right off the canvas of a Romantic Era painting. Thanks so much for sharing. <3
