Did you spot a fabulous hairstyle on the red carpet? You thought that it is impossible to have it without the help of a hairstylist. You're wrong, let's see what you need, to do the following bun: hair brush, blow dryer, mousse, hairpins, hairspray, straightening iron. Prepare your hair for the updo by spraying it with a styling product. Separate your hair into several sections, then straighten your strands. After this, use your fingers to give definition to them or brush them gently.
Then, separate your hair horizontally, from one ear to another. The top half of your hair should be pinned in order to be able to deal with the lower part. Begin from the roots and twist the lower layer, do this vertically up on the back of the head. Use hairpins preferably bobby pins to set it.
Now to give definition to the upper layer, slightly backcomb it starting from root way to the top. Style and set the hair with liquid wax or hairspray. Whether you're inspired by Amy Winehouse or other celebrities choose the right height and create a puff from your teased hair. Pin the tips of your strands to the bun and set it using hairpins.
Curly updos are designed rather for formal events, however to experiment you can have it on any occasion. It's refined and classic, to have a simple updo follow these guidelines. Similarly to other buns make a ponytail right at the nape of your neck. To have it more sophisticated make two ponytails. Comb your hair back then separate it into smaller strands and start curling them with a curling iron. Go on until all the strands are done. Let your curls cool, after that, take a strand and pin it to your head with a straight hairpin, the tips should be left flowing loosely.
The first strands should be set between the two ponytails, in order to hide the space between them. Carefully set the curls in order to hide hairpins, the longer your hair is the more clips or pins you'll need. For a more formal look, you can place the ponytails vertically or to the side, right behind your ears. Apply some hairspray to preserve your hairstyle as long as possible.
