Your hair for any elegant event whether dinner at a fine restaurant or this year´s prom, should reflect sleek sophistication. The following beautiful updos, are very fashionable and amazingly simple to create.
Sleek Style #1:
- To recreate this updo, originally designed by Jose´ Eber (photo by John Russo), begin by sectioning off a half-moon shaped section for the bangs in the center front. Use a long clip to keep them out of your way.
- Next, put some curl into the rest of the hair with hot rollers and then brush it back into a ponytail. Make sure all the hair is laying smoothly and secure it with a covered rubber band. Pull a small piece of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around to conceal the band and fasten it with a bobby pin that you slide underneath the band. Follow this by dividing the rest of the ponytail into five or six ribbon-like strands of hair. Comb each ribbon into a smooth, loose curl and secure it with a bobby pin hidden inside the curl.
Use your imagination to attractively place each of the curls. If your hair is thin, you might backcomb each curl a little to "spread out" the hair and make it appear thicker.
- To personalize your style and for a more dressy touch, use a strand of pearls or a thin satin ribbon and weave into the curls as you place them. When each curl is in its proper place spray with a firm hold hair spray.
- Create the flirty bangs by smoothing them to the side and letting them drape slightly over one eye with a very slight curl at the end. If your hair is straight, use a Velcro-roller to "set" this area. Wrap the hair around the roller, spray it lightly with hairspray and heat it with a blow dryer. Comb out after it cools. Back comb as needed and use hair spray at the hairline to keep them to the side. To tame any fly away hairs, use a light hair spray or a small amount of spray wax.
