It’s Summer- and that means my hair is- a.) constantly dried out and damaged from the sun, pool, and beach, and b.) pretty much up off my face all the time. It’s just too hot to wear my hair down, and when the kids aren’t in school, I have a lot less time for getting ready. Besides, why do my hair everyday when we end up in the pool most of the time anyway?
I do think it important to look my best, and it seems like Summer brings lots of fun events. That’s why I love this simple updo for short hair- it looks great wet or dry, it’s super versatile (I can wear it with my hair down, half up, or in a full ponytail), and it takes 5 minutes. What else could I want from a hair style? (Nothing, actually.) (Although, for a more complicated short hair style, check out my beach waves tutorial!)
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 bobby pins
- brush and comb
- hair tie (optional)
Instruction for Updo:
- I prepped my hair by shampooing and conditioning with Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultra Moisture Shampoo and Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultra Moisture Conditioner.
- My hair was extra dry from a trip to the water park, so I also did theSchwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultra Moisture Anti-Breakage Treatment on my hair for added moisture. It was awesome.
- Air dry, blow dry, or just leave your hair wet. I flat ironed my hair this time because I wanted it extra smooth, but I often leave my hair curly or wavy and the look is super cute that way too. Here’s the tutorial:
First, part your hair naturally, or you can pick a side part too.
Section off about 2 ” of hair along the bang line. I start where my hair parts naturally, and then just take some more from the side.
Twist the hair away from the part, adding in pieces from behind as you go. Go as far back as you want.
With one bobby pin, anchor the twist by pushing the pin forward in your hair. This will keep the style in place through almost anything (like an Enrique Iglesias/Pitbull arena concert. I swear- my hair did not move through 4 hours of dancing!)
To further anchor the bang roll updo, push in two more bobby pins horizontal to your hairline, forming an ‘X’ with them on the top of your head.
Style as desired- you can leave the rest of your hair down, leave it half up, or put it in a full pony. Look how cute this is!!
If you are still having trouble with this style, I created this short video that recaps everything. Check it out- and don’t forget to subscribe to the Pura Vida Moms channel too!
I prepped my hair for this style by using the Gliss™ Ultimate Moisture products because they are perfect for repairing dry hair (like mine gets in the summer!) I found the products right at Walmart in the hair care aisle. I used the Ultimate Moisture Shampoo and the Ultimate Moisture conditioner as directed, and then used the Ultimate Moisture Anti-Breakage Treatment as a deep conditioner for my hair. I left it on for about 5 minutes and then rinsed it out with cool water. The cumulative effects of the regimen left my hair super moisturized and easy to manage- perfect for styling!
The price on the products is great, and there’s a printable coupon available for $5.00 off the purchase of two products. Which is almost a buy one get one free situation. Click here to SAVE $5.00 on TWO (2) Schwarzkopf® GLISS™ Shampoo, Conditioner or Treatment!
