THE FIVE-MINUTE UPSWEEP

the five minute upsweep 

Really, it’s so easy to do!
 
 
For Naturalistas who adore texture, volume and making a stunning entrance: this upsweep is for you! We’re taking a cue from the quick-change moves of platform hair pros with this gorgeous upsweep crafted on Natural textures glimpsed on the runways at the recent America’s Beauty Show. Ready to make this look yours? Start the clock…First, use a boar-bristle brush to sweep sides and nape upward. (Dab on a little edge control gel to keep any stray strands in place.) Next, gather loose ends at the crown and begin pinning at the base as you work to secure the look. Remember: You’re going for a softly constructed “Mohawk” silhouette so keep the top fluffy and free! That’s it!
