Impromptu Posts: Easy Updo

Share it Please
While I love long hair, I frequently find that I want my hair up and off of my shoulders. I don't want to spend forever putting my hair up, but a ponytail can get a bit boring after a while. Never fear, there is a completely different option for you!


All you have to do is position a headband over the top of your hair. Make sure it is exactly where you want it to be before doing anything else. Then tuck all of the ends of your hair under the band. This creates a sort of curled look. Make sure all of your ends are securely under the strap of your headband. If you are having trouble keeping them there feel free to use bobby pins. And that's it! You're done!


From the front you will be able to see the headband, so using a fancy headband is a perfect way to dress up the look. You can find a similar one here. The way I did it is the super easy version, but it doesn't have as much staying power. If you are going to be lounging around your house it will stay up just fine, but if you are going to a bit more active I've included a tutorial video below.

    1. I do too! And if I put my hair up without mirror I always end up with strange lumps in my ponytail...
