Nicky Hilton Straight Half Updo for Oval Faces
Nicky Hilton's straight and silky half updo works well for day and nighttime events. What to do: 1. To get the look, apply a straightening serum to damp hair and section off hair with clips. 2. Next, with a round brush, dry in 2-inch sections. Pull the brush gently through the hair and twist the brush under slightly at the end so the tips don't look severely straight. 3. When your hair is completely dry, apply a shine serum, making sure it's applied throughout the hair. 4. Next, take about four inches of hair at your forehead and pull it forward. Then, with a teasing comb, lightly tease the hair at your crown -- more teasing equals more height. 5. Then lay the front hair over the teased section, making sure it's pulled straight and sleek (you want it to be fly-away free) and secure in the back of the crown with a few bobby pins. 6. Finish off the look with a holding spray, making sure to get the bouffant, and the rest of your hair, too.

To create the Bardot-Bump, start by making a part on either side of your head. Next, gather the top section of hair that falls between the parts and lift vertically. 4. Tease the backside of this section of hair, then spritz with hairspray.
