Natural Hairstyle Updo: Copy Cat Style

For this months Hair Carnival each participating blogger was randomly assigned to another blog in which they were to copy a style from, similar to our September Hair Carnival. The blog I was given was Brown Girls Hair.

The style I chose to recreate was their natural hairstyle updo for girls from this video tutorial. I did do it differently to put our own spin on it, but I used the same basic concept.

What I did was make 4 ponytails down the center of her head, I made each ponytail into a 2 strand twist, then wrapped them around each other and pinned them with bobby pins once I had them how I wanted them.

She’s worn her natural curls, curlformer curls, classic pig tails and flat twists in previous years. This year I decided to do our favorite easy updo hairstyle. […]
