Hair Romance - Keep your curls under control - easy twist & pin updo

For those days when your curls aren’t sitting right, try this easy Twist & Pin updo to keep all your hair up.

It really is as easy as Twist & Pin but the style secret is all in the choice of bobby pins. You must use strong, professional quality pins. These are the bobby pins I use.

The styling trick to keeping your bobby pins in place is not to overload the pins with hair. If you open the pin and take in too much hair, you’ll find the pins seem to reverse out of your hair and fall out. Instead, lightly weave the pin through your hair. This technique only catches only a small amount of hair but connects the twists to the rest of your hair.

It really is as easy as Twist & Pin!

Remember to take even sections to keep the twists consistent. You can use bobby pins to pin the twists to each other for more stability.

Love this twist & pin look for us curly girls! Too bad I cut all my curls off back in November, but I’ll keep it in mind for that day when they’re grown out again.

Thanks Lollie! The Twist & Pin can work from around bob length, so it;s great fr those in-between stages as you grow your hair out too x

Thank you. I’ve been looking for a hairstyle for work days when my hair is out of control. I love your website but find your styles a little too perfect as they always start with straight hair. This hairstyle gives me hope!

Thanks for this article! Your curls looks like a very similar texture and thickness to my own. What type of styling products do you use for this? I’m going to an August wedding (very humid where I live) and I want to do my best to tame the frizz!

Hi Jaclyn, I’m not quite sure but I would have used a curl cream on the curls to help shape them after washing. I like Osis twin curl and Unite boing curl cream. I also use a serum like Original & Mineral Frizzy Logic to smooth my curls. Also this is second day hair, so it’s a bit slept on and not as fluffy as when it’s freshly washed x
