Keyshia Cole Short, Formal Hairstyle
Keyshia Cole's swept-back, twisted hairstyle is a fun, faux updo for short hair. Steal her style: 1. Start by blow drying your hair straight, brushing it toward the back as you dry. 2. Once hair is dry, lift a 2-inch section and tease just at the roots. Next, loosely twist the section before pinning it in place. 3. Continue teasing, twisting, and pinning sections until all hair at the crown is off of your face. 4. Spray with hairspray to hold.
Jessica Stroup Brunette Updo
Jessica Stroup's chic updo works perfectly on straight, layered hair with long, sideswept bangs. Steal her style: 1. If your hair is already straight, great. If not, just blow dry it straight with a paddle brush (use straightening balm if necessary). 2. Gather hair into a bun, either straight back or to the side, leaving your bangs and a few side pieces out. Secure with an elastic and bobby pins. 3. Make a deep side part with leftover pieces and flatiron them until they are super sleek. 4. Mist with shine spray if you want an extra glossy finish. Then set the entire look with hairspray.
