Updo For Short Hair

An Updo Idea That Works For Every Length

Only Alicia Keys can show us how to make a comb-over cool. Recently, she cut her long curls into a chin-grazing bob. And last night, the songstress sported a curly updo that any short-haired beauty can copy. To get this funky yet formal hairstyle, curl hair in a feathered fashion towards the back of the head. Using a high-power gel or pomade like Design Essentials Edge Control Gel ($8), slick both sides and the back of your hair up as if you were pulling your hair up into a high ponytail. Style the curly ends on top of your head. If your hair won't quite stay put, you can blast with a blow dryer to set. If you have time to spare, secure with a satin scarf for a sleek finish. Want to get a similar look with longer hair? Slick and secure both sides back to create a mohawk with cascading curls in the middle. Thanks, Alicia, for solving the holiday updo mystery for pixie wearers everywhere.
