Today, I’ll show you how to create the crisscross loop updo picture above.



To begin this hairstyle, start with some soft waves (tutorial here).  Tease the section of hair at the crown of your head, combing out gently with your fingers.



Next, separate your hair into three sections.  Leave out the hair from the ears to the hairline and put the rest of the hair into a loop (leaving a generous amount of ends).  I chose to have the loop positioned on the lower left side, but you could place it higher or in the middle.

Twist the loop and pin into place with several bobby pins.  Then take the hair that was hanging out of the loop and create pin curls with small pieces of hair pinning them into the twisted loop.



Finally, take the sections from the sides and wrap them around the twisted loop, pinning in place with bobby pins.



Use the lifting side of your teasing comb to add volume to the top and sides of this hairstyle.  Once you are happy with how it looks spray generously with hairspray.
