Super-special updo

10 Steps
Worth it
1

Plait it

Make a plait out of bulk extensions that are similar to your own hair texture.

2

Finished plait

Ensure the plait is long enough to wrap all the way around your head.

3

Dry and lift

Blowdry your hair around the edges only so you retain volume in the centre. Then, pull it all up into the middle and secure with a band close to the end.

4

Mini plait

Braid the very end to keep all the hair together neatly.

5

Pull and push

Gently pull hair up, then push it down into the centre of the crown to create a doughnut shape.

6

Pin in

Carefully pin ends into place, keeping as much volume as possible in the rest of the style.

7

Neat edges

Use a little pomade around your hairline to smooth unruly baby hairs back into the style.

8

Bring the bouffant!

Take the prepared plaited section and wrap it around your head to create a bouffant-inspired updo.

9

Mist it

Lightly mist your ’do with holding spray and shine for a polished-looking finish.

The finished look

Voila – a beautiful, head-turning updo!
