Looking for a style that shows off your curls—with minimum effort? A gorgeous upsweep like this puts the focus on beautiful volume and texture while the sleek base serves as perfect frame for your features. Simply pull your spirals into a high ponytail (this works for most lengths!) and secure with a covered elastic band. Prime the base with edge control product to keep the silhouette sleek. Then, finish off the look by tying a pretty scarf at the base of the ponytail. Pick out loose ringlets to play up the volume.  Need more mane ideas?
