Curly Hair Updos

Learn how to do curly hair updos from John Barrett Salon hair artist Dhiran Mistry in this Howcast video.



Hi everyone. My names Dhiran Mistry and I work at the John Barrett Salon Bergdorf Goodman. I'm here today with Cassie to show you some curly hair up-dos. At the moment, Cassie's hair is already curly. She has great curly hair, which makes this a lot easier to work with. What I'm going to do is just show you some really simple ways of pinning up hair, they're very, very simple anything you can do at home. All you need is a few bobby pins, there doesn't necessarily have to be a structure to this. All you have to do is grab pieces, as you see them and just pull them up. I'm going to start at the bottom, just to get the hair off the neck, because we're going to do a complete up-do. If I split the hair in half, I'm going to life all of this out the way and pin it. Then, what we're going to do is take some of these pieces at the back and just twist them around your hands. I'm going to take this and twist it around my hand and pin it, so you want to press the pin in against the scalp, like so. This will be a good base to hold the other pins that we pin up afterwards. Again, just twist it around. Now, we've created more of a base, I can use that to pin the other parts of the hair into it. Really, you could do this with as little as five or six pins. I'm going to take this and pin it around like that. I'm just grabbing bits of hair, looping them around with the pin and just popping them in. The great thing about this is you never see the pins. Then, once you've finished, you can just pull bits out and manipulate them to create the right shape that you want. I don't want it to be to big on the sides, because Cassie has a great face, we don't it to look to big. Obviously, its going to look to like 80s if she gets massive curls, so we want to keep it under control while still having a nice form to it. Then, you can always add a bit of hair spray at the end. If this was more of a daytime thing, then you probably don't want to put to much hair spray, because you might want to pull the pins out later and rock some big curls. There we have it, this is how you do a curly up-do.
