tutorial : long hair updo

Photo credit : Tec Petaja

This wedding hair updo is also featured in Once Wed's recent magazine!  Here's the tutorial for achieving this look on your own!  (Well, relatively speaking.  Having an extra set of hands around to help never hurts!)

1. Take a 1 inch thick piece of hair in your hands and twist it. 
2. Hold one tiny strand at the tip of the twist and push the remaining hair up into a ringlet on your head.  
3. Wrap the remaining strand around the ringlet and use a bobby pin to pin the ringlet to your head 
4. To recreate the top image, grab a friend who can help you create and pin ringlets all the way around.
