Updo for Wavies (Type 2) and Curlies (Type 3)

How to get the look:

  1. Start by applying gel and then diffusing until completely dry.
  2. Starting at the lower half of the hair, pull one curl at a time, and pin each to the side—right behind the ear (slightly to the side).
  3. Twist some pieces—alternating sides—to keep the hair loose and kind of messy. You don't want it to be perfect.
  4. Part to the side: Then move to the top—alternate side-to-side—keeping it loose. Do not pull on the curl. Then pin, alternating sides.
  5. Leave a few pieces in front (only if you have shorter bang pieces/framing.
  6. Complete the look with hair spray (preferably aerosol).

Updo for Kinkies (Type 4)

How to get the look:

  1. Take small sections and French braid them around the head.
  2. Angle the pattern toward one side to give the look more style.
  3. Pin then ends into the braids. It's a very simple style.
  4. You can add flowers or a clip to accentuate the look.
