Easy Updo #2: Updo with Copper Piping.
This updo was inspired by these two pins from Pinterest. Instead of paying $25 for the metal hairpiece in the last pin, I bought some metal piping from Home depot for $1.25 per piece.
- Best on: Wet and or stretched hair; medium-long length. (If you have short hair, I’ll show you how to add a Jumbo braid first.)
- Great For: Lunch date; Casual outgoing with friends
- What You’ll Need: 1’” inch wide Copper piping (Home Depot, $1.25), flatbrush, rubberbands, bobby pins, moisturizer (I used QP Elasta Olive and Mango Butter Leave-in Conditioner) and a gel or paste (I use Prostyl Protein Gel).
- On wet hair (makes this look go much smoother), put your hair into two close ponytails.
- Twist each ponytail.
- Pull ponytails through one tube.
- Take the ends and pull them through the second tube.
- Pin the ends of the twists behind the rubberbands to disguise them.
- Done! Easy peezy.
Easy Updo #2: Ponytail with Copper piping (pictured below).
This updo looks great with a couple two strand twistouts.
- Pull your hair back into a ponytail.
- Twist hair. **If you want to get the wavy look pictured above, do steps 1-2 with several twists on wet hair. Take the twists out when semi-dry.**
- Slide piping all the way up to cover ponytail holder. Your hair should hold it in place if it is thicker. If your hair is thinner, simply tie a rubber band underneath the piping.
