Something to try over the weekend...

Since it’s Friday, here’s a relatively simple updo you can try at home over the weekend… :D the Sweet Short Updo:

1. Take a large, central rectangular section from the fringe to the crown and roll on a large heated roller. Take a large oval section directly behind this section 1” from your ears, secure into a ponytail. Pin the ponytail forward and curl the ends under.

2. Take a 1” section from the side hairline and pull it to the back of the head, twist it tightly then secure at the twisted point by pinning it to the ponytail’s oval section. Make sure that your Kirby grip is pushed in securely before moving on to the next step.

3. Repeat this process identically on the other side of your head so that the finished look will appear balanced, then carry on, repeating the last step with any hair not already sectioned. Make sure that your sectioning is neat and your pinning is good before moving on.

4. Backcomb the ends of all the newly created twisted sections, maybe adding a spray or two of setting lotion or hairspray. Smooth these backcombed sections into loose soft curls on the back of the head. Use a bristle brush and hairspray for hold.

5. Unpin the ponytail and divide it into three sections. Backcomb each section thoroughly then twist and smooth each individual section into soft curl shapes. Drape these newly created curls across the back of the head, spraying to keep them in place.

6. Unwind the front rectangular section from the roller and brush hair up vertically. Drape this section over to one side, loosely pinning some of the ends under the curls at the back of the head. Spray the entire look thoroughly with a strong-hold hairspray.

And voila! You should end up with something like this…

** Apologies for the picture quality – I took these pics during my visit to the hair salon from a magazine…heheh…

Have a good weekend, y’all!
