Another take on this is to leave the hair partially unwrapped, and let it sweep to the side as pictured below. This was my style for an evening out. There is so much variation that is possible. The main goal is to have fun!
There are also a number of wonderful updo styles for naturalistas who do not have locks as pictured below.
I hope that you will try some of these wonderful styles. The most important thing is to be creative, be willing to try new ideas and have fun in the process. The bottom-line is that N.I.C.E. for updos!
Here are some photos and videos to get you started. Enjoy!
