A messy updo is very versatile and can be worn with jeans or a sequined gown and isÂ 2011’s hottest trend.
Here’s how you can get Jennifer Lopez’ sassy updo –
Begin by applying a curling mousse throughout hair, using your fingers to disperse it evenly, we love got2b Kinky Curling Mousse. Using a large barrel curling iron, roll your hair in big random chunks, concentrating on the front and top of your head. Allow your hair to cool completely and finger comb to separate and blend.
Next, gather your hair into a loose ponytail just below the top of the crown and anchor with a clear or matching color elastic band. Separate a small section from the ponytail and wrap around the base to cover the elastic band and secure with bobby pins. Depending on the look you want, separate your ponytail into 2 – 4 equal sections and clip to keep them apart.
Take one section at a time, twist gently and very loosely wrap around the hair covered band, secure with pins like the Goode Twist Pin.Â Repeat with the other section(s), pulling out a few ends to give a softer and messier look. Use your fingers to shape and mold the updo, then secure your hair with plenty of pins and mist with a flexible hold spray. Experiment with hair accessories, a flower, jeweled barrettes or some sparkly hair gems.
