Kate Winslet Wavy Half Updo
Kate Winslet's wedding- and prom-friendly half updo is super flattering for almost anyone, without looking too young or old. Steal her style: 1. If your hair is too short, get some extensions to help you fake this 'do (your hair should be at least six inches long, though). 2. Work styling lotion through slightly damp hair, comb through and set your entire head with pin curls. Do this by wrapping sections of hair around your finger and then pin them to your scalp. (You can also use hot rollers on dry hair.) 3. Release and finger-comb waves. 4. Touch any curls up with a curling iron if needed. Pull the top section of hair back and pin into place, leave a face-framing piece on each side of your head.
Angelina Jolie Romantic Half Updo
Angelina Jolie's lightly tousled half updo is perfect for a date or the prom. 1. For straight or slightly wavy hair, start by towel drying hair and apply a lightweight texturizing product while hair is still slightly damp. 2. Roughly blow dry with your head upside down (for volume) while gently finger combing. 3. Once hair is fully dry, section off your scalp into two parts by parting horizontally from ear to ear. Make sure to not brush your hair and to pull it away from your face with just your hands - you want it to look slightly messy. 4. Finally secure the top section with a barrette and spray with a medium hold hairspray.
