The Messy Up-Do
A classic, feminine style that accentuates a long lovely neck—- the key is to make it look effortless, though it’s not. Hairstylist David Keough explains how to achieve this look.
On damp hair, spray a little John Frieda Root Booster on the roots and a little Fine To Full Blow Out Spray on mid lengths to ends. Throw your head over and use your hands to create texture (you don’t need to use a brush at all through this process). Once hair is dry, throw your head up. Use a little dry shampoo on the roots to create more texture. You will see your head looks messy, but that’s the point.
Have an elastic handy and pull into pony tail, split the pony into two and twist them around themselves, loosely. Secure with a couple bobby or french pins. Now the secret is, once it is all in place, pull it apart to finish the look. This is a versatile style that can be worn day or night, and could be gorgeous for a bride on her big day by just placing some beautiful flowers into the side of the notch.
