I'm attending a wedding tomorrow and it's supposed to storm and be rainy all day. Usually I always wear my hair down because it's long and I just like loose curls but since the weather is gonna be terrible (they're calling for tornados people) I decided I should do it up. I really don't have any skill nor have I ever attempted an Updo on myself so I searched YouTube of course and found some easy updo's.
I stumbled across this one from The Small Things Blog. Which I love this blog by the way because I've seen so many pins on Pinterest about it.
They also have a YouTube tutorial on it too.
I'll break it down as best I can. This a messy style updo. So it's two sections: the top half of you hair above your ears sectioned off (clip it out of the way) and then that leaves the lower half. So you put the bottom section in a pony tail then you make it into a messy bun with another elastic holder. When you've done that you start cleaning it up by taking bobby pins to secure it to your head. Hers looked a lot more cleaned up than mine (like a perfect sock bun/donut). But I kinda liked the messiness of it. So with the top section, you put it in a pony tail and then split the part of the hair above the elastic and pull the tail through. It'll make it look twisted. With the tail you make it into a smaller bun above your lower bun and secure it with bobby pins.
Mine looked a lot messier than hers. Hers was a lot more clean and elegant. But I did really like mine. It turned out better than I thought.
My hair had a lot of product in it too. It had volumizing mouse and volumizing spray for back combing/teasing. I had also curled it earlier in the day. You could do this though if you have a little bit of a wave naturally. Like air dried hair would work too.
So for full step by step instructions I would look into her blog or YouTube. This probably took me about 3-5 minutes to do that's not including the product I put in my hair and teasing the hair some so allow time for that.
The products I used was mainly Loreal Boost It High Lift Creation Spray and a little Schwarzkopf Sparkler Spray (for shine) and then some Paul Mitchell Hot off the Press hairspray. The one that made the most difference was Loreal. XoXo
