How to Do the Side-Swept With a Twist Updo
Remove any rollers or pins from your hair, run a comb through it to smooth it, then tease it at the crown for volume. (For the technique, see Bryan’s video tutorial on how to tease hair.) Comb through the teased hair lightly just to smooth and soften it.
Working with a small section of hair in front of one ear, begin twisting the hair, working your way back and around your lower hairline. Note: If you want the “ponytail” to fall on your right side, begin by twisting a strand from the left side and vice versa.
If you need to, slip a pin into the hair at the midway point so the twist stays secure. When you reach the other side of your head, secure the twist with pins and let the ends of your hair dangle freely.
Repeat the process on the opposite side of your head, twisting a section of hair from in front of your ear and back around your lower hairline until it meets the first twist. Secure with pins.
