Updo Tutorial

Hey Ladies!  This has been a long time coming, but I am finally posting my first tutorial!

I have had my hair in an updo for the last few days, so it can get pretty crazy.  Usually when I want to do an updo, I try and make sure my hair is stretched out, either through a twist out or braid out.  The braid out or twist out can be rough, because the purpose of doing it is to stretch out your hair.

Then I rub shea butter all over my head and brush the back of my head with a boar bristle brush.

I usually hold the back of my hair up and twist the section of hair against my head.

Then I pin that section down with one or two bobby pins.

Then I brush one side of my hair. 

Then I roll my hair against my head and pin it.

Then I brush the other side of my hair, roll it and pin.

I then pin my hair towards the middle/front portion of my hair that is still loose.

Pull the hair in the front into a semi-circle and pin it in the front. 

Add another pin to the front part of the hair.

Pin the last part of the hair into a semi-circle. 

Here is the final product:
