Easy Twisted Updo from Lora Kelley | DIY Updo Tutorial

Lora Kelley, one of our lovely Snippet & Ink Select vendors, is back with another lovely updo tutorial, this one a simple twisted bun. I’m totally hairdo-challenged, but I think even I could manage this one! Photos by Select vendor, Eric Kelley.

curling iron (if needed to create loose curls)
texturizing spray (Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray or Redken Hot Sets 22 Thermal Setting Mist would work)
sectioning clips
bobby pins
finishing spray (Lora prefers Fekkai Sheer Hold Spray)


What do you think? Something to try for your engagement party or rehearsal dinner – or even your wedding day if you’re going to DIY hair and makeup?!

Lora’s last tip? “When trying a new hairdo, I always start with tidy, happy makeup. It makes everything look better when you’re finished.”

  • I value these kinds of tutorials so much because I never know what to do with my hair, especially for fancy events! I love this one in particular because I am all about low buns. Thanks!
