Give your hair a salon-worthy twist this resort season with this simple yet elegant updo!

THINGS YOU'LL NEED:
6–7 clear elastic bands (small to medium depending on your hair’s thickness)
A firm-hold hairspray such as L’Oréal Extreme Lacquer (It holds without making hair stiff!)
Take two sections of hair from around the face and use an elastic band to secure them together at the back of the head a little below the crown. Follow this step one to two more times, alternating where the elastic sits below the previous one, with one section secured to the left of the center, and the other to the right.
Individually flip all of these sections inside out (toward the head) and tuck. While holding the elastic, gently loosen the pieces you pulled together. This gives texture without having to curl!
Take the hair that is still down and separate into three sections. Twist each section and secure each one at the end with an elastic.
Gently pull each side of the twist apart to loosen, giving more volume and texture. Begin to pin at the nape of the neck, working in a circular motion as you pin. Continue this step with the last two twisted sections. Use a firm-hold hairspray all over to secure.
