supplies for an updo

Erica made us a little shopping list for our DIY updo
1. Bobby Pins
2. Tortoise Backcomb
3. Barrel Curling Iron
4. Kevin Murphy Texture Spray
5. KMS hair play

Step 1: TEXTURE
Add some texture to the hair by adding some curl. Spray with some texturizing spray, as well as a little hairspray- this will help the hair hold the backcombing/teasing for the next step.

Step 2: SECTION AND TEASE
Separate the hair into 3 sections so you have a mow hawk section of hair starting from the front hair line, down to the nape of the neck. *Because this is a fun and deconstructed style, your partings do not need to be perfect-You may even choose to not part, and gather hair from the center as you work your way back during the style.

Take the mohawk section, and backcomb/tease. Gather small sections of the hair at a time, place the comb about 3 1/2 inches from the scalp, pressing the hair down towards your scalp to create a cushion, spray a little hair spray and continue as you work up the strands of hair from that section. Repeat until you have successfully backcombed/teased the entire mohawk section. As you backcomb each section of the mohawk parting, you can lay that hair forward as you work your way back. *Leave to two side sections alone, or pin out of the way.

STEP 3: SIDE TO SIDE
Gather the hair from one of the side sections, backcombing the underside and smoothing the outer portion, and pull to the opposite side and pin.
*You may need to lift the loose hair from the mohawk section so that you can pull the hair across to pin. Spray with hairspray.  Repeat with the remaining loose side, covering the portion you just pinned as you pull the hair to the opposite side. Pin the end of the hair up and under the hair previously pulled across, hiding the ends of the hair as well as the bobby pin. Spray with hairspray.

Step 5: ROLL AND MAKE FANCY
With the remaining mohawk section of hair, create your design. Gather sections of hair to create “pin-curl” type formations. * These section sizes can vary depending on your length of hair as well as your personal design/preference.  Roll each section of hair clockwise, forming your “pin-curl” type formation, and secure with a bobby pin. You can roll all of the hair in the same clock-wise formation, or you can create your own design rotating directions as well.

Step 6: FINISH
Finish with a spray. Once all of the hair is secured, spray with a finishing spray.
*Optional, add your favorite hair adornment to this style wherever you would like, and secure with a bobby pin. Like this cute head piece from Olivia Nelson
