Pull the back section of curly hair into a ponytail at the crown of your head, leaving the pieces around your hairline loose. Secure with an elastic.
Twist the ponytail upward. Anchor it to the back of your head with bobby pins.
Sweep the front section of hair back toward the twist. Pin with bobby pins (a few tendrils may fall out).
Slip in a pretty comb. Secure it in the back of the updo.
