The fishtail twist updo tutorial

Posted on at


Did you watch the Golden Globes on Sunday the 11th?
I didn’t, but I love seeing the best, and worst, looks of the night. Naturally, I love seeing what is happening with the hair, but also the dresses. Some of the choices leave me wondering how on earth ____ (fill in the blank celebrity) left their room wearing that and feeling good.
In general, I felt like the hair was soft, simple, and flattering. There wasn’t too much that was overdone or too severe, so I was quite surprised to see a lot of really soft, wearable styles!


It’s been a little while since I filmed a hair tutorial, but I was inspired by the award show, and the many that are to come, to pull together a little 3 step updo. I mention in the video that you can swap out the fishtail braid for a regular braid, but in case you want to learn how to fishtail, click here. Do not be intimidated by the final photos of this updo. It’s broken into three separate parts and I’m confident that even a newbie could recreate this look. The key, and this is very important, is to start with a decent amount of texture in your hair. It’s impossible to add texture after you are done, but you’ll have a much easier time building the style if you start with the right hair!

I worked with a few new products on this tutorial as well! Big Sexy Hair Full Bloom needs to be used on wet hair, then blow dry to activate the formula. Then I built volume and texture with Big Sexy Hair Get Layered Flash Dry Thickening Hairspray – the quickest drying hairspray in the market, and finished with a healthy dose of Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play. I’ve tried numerous products by Sexy Hair over the years, and I was excited to get my hands on these products and put them to the true test of an updo!
I’m excited to be giving away $100 worth of Sexy Hair products to one lucky winner! Sexy Hair knows how to make really nice, layer-able products that can be used on just about every texture of hair.
To enter the giveaway, tell me in the comments below what your favorite red carpet look is. For example, do you like the overly glam fancy updo kind of look, or something a little bit softer and more feminine?
