Sarah Palin's Half Updo

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

When Sarah Palin brought the half updo into the political arena she let everyone know that long hair can be a serious fashion statement. Even a vice presidential candidate can enjoy long hair instead of adopting the typical business style short hair style.

To create the Sarah Palin half updo you should have hair that is shoulder length or longer with long layers.
    These instructions are for fine hair that is of medium thickness.
  1. Shampoo and condition with products that add body. Conditioning is always beneficial to long hair but the conditioner need not over soften the hair. Conditioners that are formulated for fine hair leave in as much natural body as possible.
  2. Add more body and control by applying body building Styling Foam or Styling Gel from root to ends.
  3. Blow the hair dry, adding as much fullness as possible.
  4. Use a large round brush to dry the bangs, giving them body but not curl.
  5. Set the hair on large heated rollers. Let them cool completely before removing.
  6. Brush through the hair.
  7. Separate the hair above the top of the ears and pull it straight back.
  8. Brush the hair from the top of the ears straight back meeting at the center of the back of the head.
  9. Secure the hair with bobby pins allowing the ends to curl so that the pins a concealed.
    For fullness and to help hold it in place, back brush or tease the hair before pulling it back. Gently smooth the hair with a brush to cover the teasing. Brush lightly over the top of the hair, being careful not to brush out the teasing.
  10. After pinning the hair back, create the curls. If your hair is long, you may have to pin the curls into place. Do this by sliding the pins through the inside of the curl so that they donít show from the outside.

Turn this half updo into an updo by pulling the bottom part into a simple twist.
Follow steps 1 through 7. Clip the top section out of the way.
Brush the bottom section up and to one side. Use bobby pins at the center back to hold the hair. Fold the hair back over the pins and form into a twist. Slide bobby pins through the center of the twist to hold it in place. You may either tuck the ends inside the twist or extend them upward.
Continue with step 8. Create curls or a rolls and secure them with bobby pins.

Spray the entire hair style with firm hold hair spray.
