Hair Inspiration: The Half and Half ~ How To

Photobucket
... inspired by the very sexy Brigitte Bardot, this half updo is all about old Hollywood glamour. Perfect look for when you are feeling romantic...! Great for a party but I also like balancing a super relax look of jeans and a simple t-shirt with a more polished hair look!

1. Using a large-barrel curling iron, create loose curls around your head from your ears down.
2. Part your hair in the middle. Use your fingers to separate and loosen the curls.
3. Starting halfway down the part, begin spritzing your roots with hairspray. Continue to the crown.
4. Tease the sprayed hair with a fine-tooth comb, to create height and volume.
5. With a brush gently smooth the teased hair. Gather the sides up into a half ponytail.
6. Secure the sides with pins, then use your fingers to gently shape curls into place.

...put some shine spray and  voila...you are ready to go!

I love how this hairstyle looks. Unfortunately, I can't wear teased hair to save my life. It just doesn't tease. I even got my friend, who participates in pageants (so she teases hair all the time), to try. Alas.
