Today’s 60 Updo

By Cedar | September 23, 2009

I love roller sets. If I could do them every single day, there is no doubt I would. They always look so amazing that first day….and if I do them properly they look pretty good the second day as well. By the third day though there is still some wave to my hair but it tends to frizz too much to wear out in public.

My solution; updos! They are best done on slightly wavy and slightly dirty hair. I was not particularly good at updos in the salon, but over the years I have practiced on my own head, and am getting drastically better. They do take some practice and patience, but once you learn a few techniques they can be super fast.

Here is today’s Mad Men inspired hair. This was the first time I have ever tried anything like this, but I think it turned out pretty well for a first shot. Next time I may make the top a bit taller, and try getting the french roll a bit smoother.

    I love women who do roller sets. Wish they would come back like the 60′s.
