Wash your hair, apply a conditioner for the texture of the hair that you’d like to get and dry it off.
Step 2 : Straighten your hair
The first step to nearly every hairstyle that you’re to try out is to straighten your hair, atleast upto an extent that it gets to being softer from being frizzy and out-of-control.
Step 3 : Make the updo
Whatever updo you’ve chosen for your hairstyle, go ahead and make it. To make the updo, layer your hair into the two halves, pull the outer half and make a knot out of it on the back of your head neatly by braiding the hairs, twisting them or anything else that you’d like to do with them. Use bobby pins to make the knot stay in place.
Step 4 : Style the rest of the hair
It is now time to style the other half of the hair which was left lose. Make curls out of it using a curling iron or a straight iron for the best appeal. If however, you wish to leave it lose, you can also go for that.
You can then decorate the updo you’ve made with flowers, patterned bobby pins, mini clips or pretty lace ribbons. And there you go…that pretty party hairstyle that you’ve always wanted for yourself is yours to flaunt around!
