Messy updo

5 Steps


Prep your hair with a volumising product such as L'Oréal Professionnel Volume Lift and blowdry smooth using a paddle brush.


Add texture

Take random sections of hair and twist like a rope then wrap around a small tong for a stronger curl. Once cool, separate with your fingers and spritz with a little salt spray for added texture.


Root lift

Take a teardrop-shaped section three inches from the hairline to below the crown and backcomb, working in small sections and directing the hair in the opposite direction as you backcomb to help create more height.


Low pony

Leaving a few strands around the face and the sides free, pull the rest of your hair into a low ponytail and secure with a bungee.


Bun style

Twist the ponytail into a bun and pin, then add the loose side sections to create a messier shape, again securing with pins. To give the look a more 'undone' effect, massage the roots and bun then spritz with a little hairspray to finish.
