Natural hair makeover | Easy, elegant updo by Hair Lounge

Charlotte Mensah from Hair Lounge gives our BBH reader a soigné updo that not only looks elegant, but protects the ends of her hair

The problem

“I’ve been natural for over 10 years now and I would like to learn how to create some updo styles. I love your work so much and if you could give me a new take on the updo that would be amazing.” 

The solution

“Ayanna has beautiful natural hair I will show her how to do a simple updo style with a brilliant quirky finish.” says Charlotte

The steps

Working in small sections the hair is blowdried

Wax is used to smooth the hair up into a high side ponytail

The ends are two-strand twisted and tucked under

The end result

‘‘Wow, wow, wow! I love it, Charlotte, especially the quirkiness of the bun.’
