Demand attention with a gorgeous updo.

Get the look: Silky smooth strands are parted near the ears to separate the mane into two sections. The bottom tresses are pulled back and twisted into a subtle updo while the top strands are curled with a one-inch iron and swept to the side, for an eye-grazing finish.



Give your mane a more contemporary feel with this sassy style.

Get the look: Tresses are fashioned into buns: with one big ponytail that sit in the middle and two smaller ones that are placed at the crown. Put the large ponytail in a bun and secure with bobby pins. Tease hair from the middle bun using hairspray and smooth over front bun to create a pompadour style. A small piece of blonde extension hair is curled and placed inside of the front bun. Apply a lightweight oil for glimmer.



Get your glam on with this eye-catching updo that’s full of fabulous flavor.

Get the look: Natural hair is presses out before molding strands into a ponytail. Synthetic braiding hair is added to the ponytail and twisted into clusters of knots. After securing knots with bobby pins, add pre-shaded extensions with yellow and orange highlights to give the look extra pizazz. Hair at the top of the crown is formed into a pompadour before using a flat iron to curl the side bang into soft “petal curls.”
