We typically resort to the updo for one or both of these reasons: There’s a fancy occasion on our calendar or the weather leaves us no choice — otherwise, we’d have strands sticking to the back of our neck. And whether you’re opting for something as simple as a topknot or trying out a complicated chignon, preparation is key.
For those with shorter hair, celebrity hairstylist Keka Heron recommends adding texture and volume with a dry shampoo. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment with the hair stuffing used to elongate model hair on the runways. Curly variations will also add dimension to a hairstyle that isn’t meant to be slicked back. If your hair is fine, shape tiny tendrils, and for thicker textures, create larger ones.
Lastly, keep the following hacks in mind:
- You can never have too many bobby pins. Just make sure the grooved side is facing down for secure placement.
- You can never have too much hairspray.
- Teasing is your best friend.
