I live out here in New Orleans… so getting to New York Fashion Week has always been a dream of mine since I was modeling as a teenager. Now that I’m consumed in the blogging world, I have a much different view of what New York Fashion Week would be like. Most importantly… I’m always scouting photos of the trendiest hairstyles showcased on the runway! Since I can’t make it to New York Fashion Week, I like to play dress up here in my own town as if I were in New York – hairstyle, outfit, makeup and all! Some of my dress up looks are also perfect for a night out on the town! Check out my EASY updo below. I think it would make for a great New York Fashion Week blogger event or a dressy date night wherever you are. It’s a versatile look that will keep your curly hairstyle looking chic!
What I like to do first is dry my curly hair using a blowdryer and diffuser attachment. It’s the fastest way to get the volume that I need with this look. After my hair has been dried completely, I go in with my fingers and gently massage at the root to give my curls the extra lift! This is especially great if you have fine curls like mine that lack in the volume department naturally. Before getting started with the look itself, I like to take a small section of my curls from the top. Consider them bangs, if you will. I just think the look wouldn’t be complete without a little extra free curl action going on, you’ll see!
I gently pull apart my curls to separate the top half section from the bottom. Once separated, I begin to twirl the ends with my fingers until I get a nice loose twist going on. I then hold the ends of that twist and pin it to the back of my head. This will give the top half of my head a nice poof or bump.
Then with the bottom half of my hair, I also begin to twist the ends just like I did with the first half of my hair. Only this time, I begin to roll the twist into it self until it meets with the bottom of the first half – or if it’s easier to understand, I roll it until it reaches the middle of my head, too. I then pin that into place as well. With the extra pieces of curls left over, I just let them hang on the side of my head. You could always pin them back if you like but I just think it adds a touch of elegance to the hairstyle!
Because this is a look that I need to stay in place, I finish it off with my new favorite hairspray. It’s the All-New TRESemmé Micro-Mist that I got at CVS. Not only does this hair spray help me achieve a long lasting style without stiffness, my look still has natural movement, flexibility and lasting hold. You know those extra pieces at the front of my curls? They don’t feel like ramen noodles! How annoying is it when your curls are so stick they don’t even move in the wind!?! No stiffness, just style! And unlike the weather in New York City, here in New Orleans the humidity is no joke. However, the TRESemmé Micro-Mist Level 2 hairspray that I’m using has a superfine micro-mist technology that keeps frizz reduced for 24 hours to give a flexible hold, with a touchable finish.
I just spray 10-12 inches from my hair to complete the look and I am all done! I am absolutely obsessed with this look for any event that I just had to share it with you all! I’m also super obsessed with sharing another great offer from CVS and it’ll help you get the tools you need to complete this look!
