Updo How-To

Special event coming up? Then here’s your special hairstyle! Designer Ashley O’Dell of Michael’s Salon and Spa in Centerville, OH, shares the step-by-step for this classic and chic upsweep…

updo how to one←Step One
Prep hair with a volumizing mousse and blow-dry with a round brush. Section off crown and bang area; curl vertically around sides and back with a 1 ¼” marcel iron, spraying each section with a heat-styling spray as you go (O’Dell used Aquage Working Spray). Continue to the crown, curling hair horizontally in a downward motion and pinning each curl in place with a double prong clip.

Let curls cool completely before unclipping. Relax hair with a polishing brush, following the brush with your hand to maintain a smooth wave.

updo how to threeStep Three
With the crown sectioned off, rolled under, and clipped out of the way, make “C” shape partings above each ear and clip sides out of the way. Maintain “C” shape partings for all sections, facing downward through the back sections. This conceals your part lines as you pull the hair into place.

updo how to fourStep Four
Starting on the right side, pull back the first section of hair loosely and secure in the center of the back with a bobby pin. Continue pulling sections of hair, alternating from right to left, until you reach the bottom, pinning each as you go.

updo how to fiveStep Five
Pull each side section back loosely and pin into the folds of the previous sections. Unclip crown and tease section for volume. Gently smooth surface, roll ends under, and pin just above the previously pinned hair, manipulating with your fingers to lay in a swooped way. Lightly tease bang area to help hold the hair together and smooth back, allowing the hair to bend and flow with the waves created by the curling iron. Pin in place and mist with a finishing spray for a firm hold. Add flowers or jeweled hair accessories if desired.
