The Art of Updos: Tips and Tricks for Achieving the Perfect Look
Get a Little Gritty
If you struggle with getting your hair to stay up in perfect shape for your updos, it may actually be too clean! Clean hair can be slippery and less likely to hold on to pins, ties, or clips, so it may help to use dry shampoo, a very light layer of hairspray, or even baby powder to give your hair extra grip. For textured hair types, using products that are designed to work with your texture instead of causing build up or dryness is also key.
Have The Right Tools On Hand
No matter what job you have at hand, having the right tools to use will set you up for success, and that includes hairstyling! Pins that are designed for your hair color, thickness, and type will hold better than generic bobby pins, and clips without interior grips are more likely to slip or fall out. Of course, using hot tools that are designed to create less damage will keep your hair healthier and easier to style.
Be Able to See What You’re Doing
One of the most difficult parts of styling your own hair is not being able to see the back of your head! Set yourself up for success before getting started by setting up a mirror behind you so you can see both the front and the back!
Finishing The Look
Another major frustration that comes with styling your own updos is getting everything to stay in place. Invest in a good hair spray or gel that you can use before and after styling to help keep everything in place, or if your hair naturally tends to fall out of pins, ties, or clips, try ‘messy’ styles that work for you so that you can work with your hair instead of against it.
