1. Prep the hair with mousse or set ing lotion and make sure the hair is completely dry before you start curling. Use a smal -barrel iron or rol wet hair on smal curlers. Hold the iron under the hair, not over. Curl the whole front section in the same direction, either going left or right.



2. Hold until the heat from the curling iron has reached al the way through. Gently open the curling iron a few times to let the curl loose. Rol the curl up on your fingers to prevent it from losing its shape.



3. Secure by placing a clip at the base of the curl. Let cool.



4. Curl the rest of the hair in the same way. When you reach the back section, curl it away from the face, while curling the side hair downward. Fol ow the same instructions if using curlers, but be sure to wait until hair is completely dry before removing them, and then continue as described on the next page.


5. Once the hair has cooled completely, remove the clips (or the rol ers once the hair is dry). Pul your fingers through the hair to separate the curls.



6. Gather the hair high up on each side of your face and secure with hair combs. To secure each comb in place, first comb upward, then push back down.



7. Bunch the curls together and secure with bobby pins (be sure not to squish them too much). Push the bobby pins in as close to the scalp as possible, then spray to set the style.



8. To turn this into a ful updo—a so-cal ed sweep-up—gather al the hair at the nape of your neck, brush it lightly, and then twist it one turn.



9. Push a hair comb down right over the twist and separate the curls above. Reinforce the style with bobby pins if needed. Finish off with a few thin coats of hair spray.
