Fresh and Natural Looking Updo for Prom

Fresh and Natural Looking Updo for Prom
If your medium to long hair curls easily you can create this feminine and stylish updo for the prom on your own or with a little help from your friends. It is a very natural looking cluster of curls that look loose and unconstructed but stays in place all evening.

    The Set:
  • Shampoo and condition your hair with products that add body.
  • Apply firm hold styling foam or styling glaze and comb through your hair.
  • Scrunch your hair dry
  • Curl your hair all over, creating small cork-screw curls. If your hair is naturally curly and does this on its own, skip to the styling directions!
  • Depending on how easily your hair curls:
    • Curl small strands with a ¾ inch curling iron until every hair is curled. It helps to temporarily pin each curl so that it will not loosen while you are curling the others.
    • Or, use lots of small hot rollers to curl all of your hair. You will have to borrow sets from friends to get enough small rollers.
  • When all the curls are in and the hot rollers are cool, carefully remove the curlers (or pins)

  • Start at the top, using your fingers. Pull the front back to create a cluster of curls on top of your head. Allow the ends of the curls to fall over the pins so that none of them show.
  • Take individual strands from the sides, to meet the original cluster and pin each one.
  • You may allow a strand of two to hang down here and there for a natural effect. (This can be done at the sides, in the back or in the front)
  • Start taking strands from the back and pulling them (not tight) up to the top. Here, don’t worry about hiding the pins until you get to the last curls.
  • Start with strands that are just below the top cluster.
  • Work your way down, until all of the curls are pulled up and pinned into the updo.
  • Arrange the curly ends so that they cover the pins and lay in soft curls.
  • Spray with a flexible hold hairspray.
  • Have a wonderful time!
