7. Side Swept Updo

This side swept updo is simple, but has a touch of pizzazz. It is a style that’s ideal for the bride with a veil to be uncovered. The comb of the veil would be very easy to place being that the top of the hair is smoothed down.

Your guests will love the back of your hair with its’ perfectly pinned and tossled look as you walk past them down the aisle!

How To Style:

  1. After the hair is shampooed & conditioned, distribute a dime size drop of the GS Grape Seed Oil throughout the hair and proceed to blow-dry.
  2. After hair is dried, continue to curl the hair in big barrel size curls. Take chunky sections of the hair to curl and pin curl as you go to preserve the curl. (Make sure to curl the front in the direction you desire to style it.)
  3. Once the hair is curled, release the pins and begin to smooth the edges and top of the hair. Take the front and style it as desired (bangs optional). Begin smoothing the hair toward the back right side and secure it with pins.
  4. Now get creative! Spray a light mist of the Joicos’ Holding Spray, then take sections of the remaining curled hair, smooth it, then reroll it with you fingers to sculpt and pin until you get your finished look! For added shine, finish the look with a mist of Keracare Finishing Spray.

I recommend GS Grape Seed Oil, Joicos’ Holding Spray and Keracare Finishing Spray to complete this look.

How adorable is this updo?! Take the seductive approach with the heavy swoop bang in the front. Instead of the traditional veil, try a hair jewel or tiara to complement the look!

  2. After the top of hair is rolled, continue to mold the remaining section toward the center of the head similar to a Mohawk.  Roll and set the remaining section in the center and proceed to dryer for 45-60mn.
  3. Once the hair is dry, release the rollers and smooth the edges of the hair toward the center. Make sure that it’s as smooth as possible. Continue to braid the hair toward the top section. Once the braid is finished, refine and smooth the braid using pins where necessary.
  4. Take the remaining top section and part out a bang area. Shape that section into a seductive swoop.
  5. Now get creative! Take the remaining curled hair and gently pull apart the top curls with your fingers to sculpt and pin until you get you perfectly fit the face for the style. Finish the look with a mist of Keracare Finishing Spray for added shine!
