Transcript:Quick and Easy UpdoHi, I'm Tesa Peltz for the Mark Garrison Salon in New York City for About.com Style. Today I'm going to show you how to do a quick and easy updo.
Supplies Needed for an Easy UpdoYou'll need:
- hair spray
- a flat brush
- a ponytail holder
- bobby pins
- a brooch to decorate your up-do
Best Hair Texture for UpdosTo do an updo at home, you're going to put a little moose into dry hair. I wouldn't shampoo the hair the day of the updo or the event, a little bit of oil in the hair is best for the hair to stay together.
Volume in UpdosIf you like a little volume in the crown area, before you make your ponytail, you can always take your comb and put in some backcombing. The way to backcombing is a circular motion. Hold tight here, and circle here.
Pull the Hair Into an UpdoNow we've created some lift in the crown. Again taking the brush, and putting the hair into a low ponytail. Take your ponytail holder, and you can do this one of two ways: Take the hair, and only pull it half way through.
Or you can pull it all the way through, creating a low ponytail on the back of the head, then taking a piece of hair from underneath the ponytail, sprits a little hairspray, wrap it around the ponytail holder.
Finish the Easy UpdoTake your hair pin, or bobby pin, place it into the ponytail. Then you can take a broach, take a bobby pin and slide it through the metal piece, then take the bobby pin and slide it into the updo.
