Sophisticate’s Blog:                 Step-by-Step Glamour


Get ready for your closeup with a chic updo that’s perfect any special occasion! Are you ready to be the belle of the ball? Gkhair International Creative Director, Misha Belfer, gives Sophisticate’s all the styling details on how to recreate this gorgeous, old Hollywood glamour-inspired style…

1

Step One:
What’s great about this look is that it does not require any preparation and can be done on straight or curled hair!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

2

Step Two:
Create an offset, Mohawlk-inspired section (staying above the occipital bone).

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

3

Step Three:
Secure the section (section one) with a hair band. Offset to one side, create a sleek, smooth surface using Gkhair Strong Hold Hairspray.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

4

Step Four:
Section off and secure 1/4 of the ponytail, then backcomb tresses to create volume and texture in the rest of the ponytail.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

5

Step Five:
Release the secure section and create a smooth surface on top of the textured part of the ponytail.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

6

Step Six:
Flip all of the hair in the ponytail forward and secure with a hair band that’s folded in half and secured on either side with bobby pins.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

7

Step Seven:
Flip section one tresses back in their original position and secure and tuck the ends using hair pins while forming the shape.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

8

Step Eight:
Using the Gkhair 4 in 1 Curling Iron, curl hair in the bang area (section two) in small sections—all in the same direction.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

9

Step Nine:
Comb to your artistic desire, retaining the gorgeous finger waves.
