Updos are the classic hairstyle of choice for nights out, parties or formal events as they give women an aura of sophistication while keeping long hair out of their faces. However, it is not every woman that has the knowledge or talent to pile their hair up on top of their heads in a graceful manner, and some even struggle with the many pins that are needed to create an updo hairstyle. It doesn’t have to be that hard, though. Here’s how to do a hair salon quality updo hairstyle in simple steps.
Step 1: Hair Sectioning
To start creating an updo hairstyle, one needs to divide the hair into sections, separating the bangs, crown and nape areas.
Step 2: Create a ponytail
With the front and crown sections out of the way, the next step is to create a ponytail with the nape section, which will be the base for the updo hairstyle
Step 3: Create Volume
To form a simple ponytail updo, one can do a second ponytail with the crown section, which will hide the one in the nape area and create the illusion of a longer, more voluminous updo.
For a more sophisticated Florida hairstyle, the hair stylist can opt for teasing the hair slightly and then smooth it straight over the ponytail, brushing it back slightly, so as to create the illusion of a sleek yet undone updo.
Step 4: styling the bangs
There are many ways to style the bangs section, but the one that fits this hairstyle best is to comb it to the side using hair spray and a comb and then pin the section back beneath the ponytail to hide the pins used.
Alternatively, for a more romantic style, perhaps, you can create a French braid in this section, also securing it with a pin beneath the ponytail to hide the ends.
Step 5: Making it last
The last step one needs to take in order to create a classic updo is to add the finishing touches, in order for it to look perfect and last through the day of night. That is done by adding some hair spray all around and adjusting any pieces that might be out of place before it sets. One needs to be careful though, because too much hair spray will create a crispy, unattractive look.
This hairstyle is quite simple but still creates great visual impact. However, it takes time and practice to perfect, so it would be best to consult with a hair salon like Total Image Hair Designs in Dunedin, Florida, before attending an event. Clients can call or visit the salon directly to make an appointment for their big day and meet the team.
