How to Recreate Taylor Swift's Messy Updo

Last updated 5 years ago

Taylor Swift is well-known for her stunning, classic hairstyles. Watch this video to learn from a professional hairdresser how you can create a messy, side-swept updo inspired by Taylor Swift’s red carpet look.

After sectioning the hair, make a loose ponytail in the back and twist it under, pinning it in place. Take pieces from the ponytail and loop them over before pinning them to the gathered hair, gradually incorporating the hair from the side sections. By alternating which sides you take new pieces of hair from and looping them to hide areas that have been pinned, you can create a loose but complex-looking style.
