Q&A with style creator, Sara Vanderstelt
Hairstylist / Owner @ Svglamour in San Diego, CA

How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as a very whimsical enchanting tousled updo. You have the romantic vibes with the soft twist but also a little bit of texture with the pieces falling out.

My favorite thing about this updo would for sure be the color of the hair. Without that gorgeous silver, it wouldn’t have the same effect!

Any advice for someone considering it?

Make sure you have plenty of hair. If not, pop some extensions in there! This look is very full and voluminous.

Make sure you have plenty of texture products nearby to spritz when you need that airy textured look.

Personality wise, I think those who like that boho feel and are free spirited it would be a perfect fit!

How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as a textured, messy updo.  I love that it looks so effortless but well structured.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is perfect for a bride or bridesmaids. But you could definitely use it for any special occasion. This style works best with medium-long hair with a medium texture.

Twisted

Q&A with style creator, Jennifer Graves
Hairstylist @ Jennifer Graves Hair & Beauty in Crawley, UK


How would you describe this look?

I would best describe this look as being a texturized messy look. My favorite thing about it is that it is so versatile! You could wear this look to school, work, an evening out with friends or even as a cool bridal look! I have had so many brides this year asking for this specific style.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you are considering a look like this I would recommend doing it on 2 day washed hair. That way you already have some great natural texture and it also really helps keep it all together!

Step by step instructions:

– I went ahead and roughly curled sections with a 38mm barrel tong, and used Tigi Professionals 2 day dry shampoo to add a bit more grit and to roughen it up.

– Section the hair in 2 and create a messy kind of bun. This will be your ‘base’ for the style and keep it feeling really secure.

– You then want to create a loose twist in the curls and randomly pin them on the bun. It really doesn’t matter, just have fun and be creative with the style!

– Then go ahead and spray with hairspray.

This will really work on any hair type and is a nice relaxed style. There are no rules when it comes to texturized styles!

For a Bridal or Prom look it is perfect to create a romantic up-do which would flatter any gown. This hairstyle can literally be worn anywhere with anything! In fact, I love just wearing it whilst I am working. It is current in hairstyling, fun but amazing too!

Polished Yet Unrefined

Q&A with style creator, Sarah Lord
Freelance Stylist @ Lady Lord of Hair in Tallahassee, FL / Savannah, GA


How would you describe this look?

This look is for the lady who has class but with a little edge. This is a polished yet unrefined, perfectly imperfect style.

I love that this updo is so versatile and can be worn every day or for a special occasion. You can add some accessories for a bold statement or florals for a softer, more natural element. Additionally, this style sets a great tone for your complete look and pairs well with whatever mood is striking your fancy.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Work with your texture and don’t fight your curl/wave patterns. Instead, enhance them with product and use hot tools to help refine random pieces if needed. Don’t have any texture? No problem. The key to creating wanted texture is building with product and shaping with hot tools.

Sea salt sprays, textured powders, dry waxes, and a teasing comb are my go-to tools for creating this look. Braids and twists also add another fun and flirty element and help make sure your style stays put. Above all else, HAVE FUN. This doesn’t have to be perfect that’s the beauty of it!

Textured Romantic Updo

Q&A with style creator, Jordan Segna
Hairstylist @ Hair by Jordan S at Embellish Salon in Turlock, CA


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as a textured romantic updo. I love this style because it is structured but undone at the same time. It is soft around the face and has smooth interlocking transitions on the sides and into the back.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I recommend this style for clients with medium to thick hair. If the client has thin hair, I would suggest clip-in extensions. I also use Kenra Dry Texture spray which is an excellent product that applies a grit to the hair without weighing it down or making it feel dirty.

This style works best with face-framing layers and swoop bang.

Whimsical & Textured

Q&A with style creator, Amber Dillon
Stylist @ Darling & Dapper Studio in Virginia Beach, VA


How would you describe this look?

This is a textured, whimsical style that could also be translated as edgy and fun, depending on your outfit of choice!

My favorite part of this creation has to be the effortless flow and texture it gives. It has such a natural silhouette which is great for the “undone but done” look that still looks pretty.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This updo is versatile and can accompany multiple looks, personalities, and face shapes. You could add more volume up top to make the face appear slimmer, or decrease it to add width.

Texture spray, or really any wax-based product, is a must. My personal go-to is Kenra’s Dry Texture spray or their Air Grip Spray to really give that definition and separation, as well as grip. Finer hair will definitely need a little extra product to rough” the hair up a little bit and add some volume. Puff Me by Design.Me is a great volumizing mist to add that.

Anywhere is acceptable to flaunt this style! It’s perfect for formal occasions such as weddings, dances and holiday parties, but is still just as great for a night on the town. You could also totally rock this during the day by loosening it ever so slightly, adding simple makeup, and wearing a cute casual dress.

Stand Out Updo

Q&A with style creator, Stormy Hickman
Cosmetologist in Fishers, IN


How would you describe this look?

This is a fun and sassy textured updo that I brought to life. The client mentioned to me that she really wanted to feel beautiful and catch her husband’s eye, so in my head, I was absolutely obligated to give her a “stand out” look.

My favorite part of this updo is both sides. I loved the way they flowed directly back. The sides really created an elegant feel and made it perfect for the occasion.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Honestly, this exact same style would not show as much dimension someone who has all over dark hair. She was a blonde with a red undercolor. In my opinion, color is everything when you are creating a textured updo!

It is imperative that the length come below the shoulders because in the initial preparation, I produced fairly tight curls. Her length ended in the middle of her back and it gave me a lot of hair to work with. Hairspray is key in keeping this look in place all day or night!

Bohemian Twist

Q&A with style creator, Heather Cosier
Hairstylist @ RedBloom Salon Downtown in Calgary, AB


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as a bohemian twist on a basic updo. My favorite thing about it is, of course, the double Dutch braids! This client had a lot of hair, so a double braid worked really well for her.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is a great look for a bride or bridesmaid, a holiday party, or even a fun night out. If you’re considering this look, make sure you have enough hair to do a double braid! It won’t work with hair above the shoulders.

This style requires about an hour in the salon and lots of hairspray. Make sure to carry a few extra bobby pins to your event in case anything should fall loose.

Q&A with style creator, Mikelle Hunter
Stylist @ Nuovo Salons in Sarasota, FL


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

My favorite thing about this look is how easy and quick it is to do! I love how messy and fun it is, yet classy and professional as well.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

I’m die hard Aveda fan! To achieve this look I used the Shampure dry shampoo to give the hair a little more texture and the Air Control hairspray for hold.

A tip to help achieve this look is that it doesn’t have to be perfect! That’s what I love about it. I made two buns on top of each other, bobby pinned them together, then just fluffed the buns and pinned as needed!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look should be for someone whose hair type is normal to thick in density. The hair can also be shoulder length or longer! This look would be suitable for a business woman or someone who is going to an event.

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe the look as understated and deconstructed. I think that sometimes updos can looks little too polished. This isn’t always needed nor does it reflect current trends.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

To create this look, I used a heat protection spray by GHD and a mousse by Sassoon, but the equivalent in any salon/professional range would suffice.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look would be perfect for any woman who’s going to a holiday party. I think it also lends itself to the modern day bride who likes to have a modern edge.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

A great tip for creating this look is to curl your hair first then pin up your hair as you go. Quick and simple!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This hairstyle is great for special occasions. It’s great for people who have fine or thin hair because this hairstyle will make the hair look much fuller.

Q&A with style creator, Gina Ecke
Hairstylist / Colorist / Makeup Artist @ Atelier Salon and Spa in Denville, NJ


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as a messy yet classy and chic updo.

My favorite thing about it is that it can be dressed down or up. Worn as shown, it can work with a simple t-shirt and ripped jeans with the right lip color and heels. It also easily goes with a long dress and a fancy hair clip to dress it up!

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

I definitely recommend using dry shampoo and a anti-humidity spray. It gives the effect of a stronger spray holding-wise, but let’s you piece and work gently and softly. There is no wrong or right way to do a messy bun. I just play around placing different pieces, and if it works, it stays.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

The best thing about this updo is that it can pretty much work for any client. It is a very versatile look and has been done on clients who are attending functions at extravagant banquet halls, or someone celebrating their 21st birthday.

It is ideal for someone on the go. Someone who has no time for anything fancy can easily recreate this and make it their own. Pulling some pieces out, or pulling everything away from the face, it complements anyone’s shape!
