A 3-minute updo for any occasion

I am a fan of voluminous hairstyles because my hair by nature is very fine and flat when I don’t do anything to it. The updo that I am going to introduce to you is easy and chic and suitable for any occasion (even to work).

If you would like to wear this updo to a formal event/Christmas or NYE party, just use sparkly diamante hair clips/hair jaws/hair claws in your hair and you’re ready to go. This style is my go-to hairstyle whenever I need to rush out of the house to run some errands because it takes no more than 3 minutes for me to complete this look.

I apologize for the most unprofessional method of showing you how to do this updo. I basically had to take a selfie of every step so please bear with me.

What you need

  1. Hairbrush
  2. A couple of bobby pins
  3. 2 hair jaws/ hair claws (the tighter the grip the better)
  4. Hairspray (my favorite hairspray is TRESemmé Extra Firm Hold)

Steps

  1. Brush your hair to give some volume to it.
  2. Grab everything into a very high ponytail and hold this ponytail with the thumb and index finger of one hand. I used my left hand.

  1. Using your other hand, twist the ponytail around your index finger to form a bun until you have come to the end of the length of the ponytail. I used the 3 other fingers of my left hand to somewhat guide this twisting motion.
  2. You can see the 3 fingers of my left hand securing the section of the bun where the end of the ponytail is.

  1. Now holding the bun in place with just one hand, it should look something like this from the back.
  2. Using your other hand, take one of the hair jaws/ hair claws and clip one side of the bun.

  1. Then clip the other side.
  2. I don’t like my bun to be too tight so I use my finger to puff up the front section a little. The bun has been securely fastened by the 2 hair jaws/ hair claws so don’t worry about it falling apart from this action.

  1. You can see the ends of my ponytail sticking out of the bun.
  2. I use as many bobby pins as I need to pin down these stray ends sticking out.

  1. The bun is much neater this way and also a lot more secured. It can last me the entire day without falling into a mess.
  2. The final look is set using some hairspray. (Just FYI - at the end of the day when you let your hair down, you will notice significant increase in the volume of your hair!)
