Up & Away

Description: Up & Away

Up & Away

Disguise a bad hair day with this artfully messy up-do

Backcomb your entire head of hair, starting at the mid-lengths and teasing all the way to the roots.

Take a section of hair from ear to ear and secure it out of the way

Form a lose ponytail at the back of the head with the remaining hair and pin a bun roll in place

Split the ponytail and cover the roll, making sure it isn’t too neat

Release the front section and backcomb the full length of the hair

Using a hairbrush, smooth your hair over the bun, being careful not to brush out any volume or texture

Secure your hair in place with a few pins and sprinkle it with a bit of hair dust for a matte finish

This slick-backed style is perfect for work and play

Apply a heat-protecting straightening product to damp hair and blow-dry straight with a paddle brush.

Using a comb, create a low side parting, starting in line with the arch of your eyebrow

Secure your hair in a low pony at the nape of your neck and spritz with a shine spray

Leave the ponytail loose or tie in a knot for a ballerina look
