What you will Need for Doing a Curly Half Updo:
How to do a Curly Half Updo Hairstyle:
1. Moisturize hair.
2. Blow-dry hair, section by section – starting from the hair at the back and at the nape. Repeat blow-drying by sections at the side and front. Use a radial brush as you blow-dry. Curl the brush as you reach the end of each hair section to give it more volume. Don’t forget to blow-dry hair at and around your crown as well.
3. Use a large curling iron to make soft curls at mid-length and at the ends of your hair.
4. Once you have finished creating your soft curls, move to the crown and tease a few hair sections to add more volume.
Tease more if you want extra volume.
5. As soon as you get the desired volume of hair at the crown, gather and pull back a few sections of hair from the top and secure it with a pin at the back, leaving your fringe (if you have one) untouched at the front. You can also leave a few sections of hair in front so you can sweep them slightly to the sides or at one side, framing your face. Let the loose curls of the other half of your hair fall down comfortably to your shoulders.
6. Finish with hairspray.
This really is a great style for a wedding and there are number of ways you can customize it to fit your appearance.
