HOW TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK
Wash and condition hair
Towel-dry hair until damp and scrunch with a towel, so hair isn’t damaged and doesn’t get split ends.
Spray hair with a lightweight spray gel and work it through your hair with a skeleton brush, ensuring it’s evenly distributed.
Blow-dry hair completely, using the skeleton brush to push hair upward and backward as you blow-dry. Once hair is completely dry, section off the front-middle portion.
Divide the front-middle portion of your hair into three sections. For each section, place the tips over a medium-sized roller and roll your hair upward to the scalp. Blow-dry each roller for 20 seconds.
Take out the rollers, starting with the one that is farthest back. Backcomb each of these three sections, spraying the roots of each area with hairspray.
After each section has been backcombed, brush all three back and upward with a flat brush, smoothing the hair backward. Spray hair all over with an aerosol strong-hold hairspray, smoothing the surface of the hair into a bouffant shape (as in the picture). Be sure to smooth the sides and the middle of the hair, as this will keep this short hair updo looking polished.
Place a headband on your forehead and slide it back 2-3 inches from the hairline, keeping the front of the hair smooth
