My ongoing fascination with long hair continues. And when everyone is pulling their hair into amazing updos and braids it only gets worse! I wake up with 'crazy hair' (my daughter's term) sticking straight up and wish I could pull it into a sleek ponytail or other easy updos.
But have you actually tried any of the fancy hairstyles? Oh my. I experimented on a friend with long hair and realized that you need about 4 hands to hold everything together.
So I rounded up 10 (relatively) easy ideas that look doable for a real mom without a hairdresser nearby. Some sophisticated and some messy, these easy updos can all be done by you, at home, with just 2 hands! Happy braiding!
10 Easy Updos You Can Actually Do With Two Hands
1. Braided do from Keiko Lynn
Start with dry shampoo and a mirror, continue with bobby pins and a brush, and get yourself a fancy braid. Who would have thought good hair can be so easy!
2. Rope bun from A Cup of Jo
"Rope" may not be a word delicate enough to describe this hairstyle. It's easy, messy, comfortable and just feminine enough, which is why we love it so much.
3. Quick twist for short hair from the Beauty Department
Hair on the short side doesn't have many options, but this easy twist is just easy and pretty enough. Finally some good news for those of us with less than stellar locks.
4. Pretty low side bun hair tutorial from Love Meagan
Did you know asymmetrical hairstyles make your face look more symmetrical! No wonder we keep seeing asymmetrical cuts on celebrities. Try this lovely low side bun that is also very romantic looking.
5. 2-Minute Easy Updo Tutorial from Hello Glow
Two hands and one elastic headband are all the things you need to make this sweet rolled updo happen. And your hair doesn't even need to be that long!
6. Braided Top Knot Tutorial from Hello Glow
Not just a simple bun on top of your head, but one that shows off a nice braid at the back. The unexpected part? It's easy to do!
7. Quick hair routine from Love Aesthetics
For thin, delicate hair, you can quickly twist it into your new signature hairstyle! This style really shows off your new hair color!
8. Braided updo from Sugar and Cloth
Wear your hair up without getting bored with it. This easy braided updo is perfect for everyday wear. Less is more.
9. Simple and Chic Knotted Ponytail from The Blondie Locks
If you find braiding is too hard, knotting is the thing for you. Knotting allows room for 'mistakes', and this version is as easy as knotting some hair strands over your low ponytail. The best part is you don't even need super long hair to make it happen.
10. Double Dutch Braids to Single Braid from Hello Glow
The best time to braid your hair it's when it's a little dirty. It even holds better! This style, although not very common, is very easy to do even when you're eyes are barely open in the morning.399
Its not my first time to go to see this webb site, i am visiting this site dailly and
get nice facts from here all the time.
Thank you for sharing these! I have really long thick hair, and I inevitably end up putting in in a top knot or a ponytail every-single-damn-day! I love the look of the braided headband, definitely one to try!

Until now I am having a hard time doing updos because of my medium length thin hair. I really like to do all of these and looking forward to see tutorials for medium length thin hair.
