Pretzel Braid

This is such an elegant, simple updo. Bonus -- It gives you a base for almost any updo. 26:35 = total course time

It’s called a braid. It looks like a braid, but it’s not really braiding. It starts by learning how to make the tightest and most secure ponytail base for any updo. For the Pretzel Braid, the hair will loop and intertwine to look like it’s impossible to do. Only you know the secret to how easy it really is.

Hi, my name is Amy.

I’ve been doing hair for over 30 years.

I love it more now than the day I started!

Learning and teaching are two tricks that keep me motivated and excited about the work I do.

Years ago, I thought to myself, why do I still have so many issues with doing updos? After years of amazing training, I still didn’t have all the answers. That is when Foolproof Updoing came to life. A gift from above!

Foolproof Updoing is a thorough system of the principles needed to do any updo imaginable. By providing you with a core understanding and knowledge of the how’s and why’s to any updo, the guesswork is eliminated and the fun of styling returns!

My favorite part of teaching this system is watching updo artists' minds come alive with excitement as they learn it.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Foolproof Updoing!
