As reported by ELLE's resident beauty trends expert, Georgia Collins, elegantly undone updos are big news for spring. So I headed to Wella's central London Studios to meet Celebrity Stylist and Shockwaves Style Director Michael Douglas to find out how we can get undone 'dos at home.
Here's his 10-step guide:
1- Towel dry hair and apply Shine & Body Mousse, £2.99 by Shockwaves.
2- Blow dry hair. Make sure it's 100 per cent dry.
3- Use tongs or rollers to add a wave into the hair. Take quite big sections, so it doesn't take too long. It doesn't need to be perfect; the curl just helps the hair stay in place for longer.
4- If your hair is fine and slippy use hairspray on each section before adding the wave.
5- Once the hair is curled, use a wide tooth comb or soft bristle brush to gently brush through the curls.
6- Rub some Shine & Anti-Frizz Seum, £2.99 by Shockwaves onto your hands and run your fingers through your hair.
8- If your hair is short, release the front section and backcomb.
9- Experiment with where you want to place the loose hair. Use Kirby grips to secure sections or use curl clips to add interest.
10- If your hair is long and completely pulled back into the ponytail, use the end of a pin tail comb to loosen some of the front section. You can also add coloured pins and clips to add detail.
Top tip: For contrast, use black grips on blonde hair and silver ones on brunette hair.
