How to: Rock an up-do

Step 1: Create a ponytail – Award-winning hairdresser Andrew Barton says “the first step is to gently back brush the hair and then, using the fingers, rake the hair back away from the face and pull it back into a loose ponytail at the nap of the neck”. You can then use an invisibobble to hold the air in place. This is best as it is designed not to pull on the hair.

Step 2: Back brush the tail – After putting it up gently back brush the tail of the pony. After the tail brush over the surface of the hair and twist into a bun shape. The Scünci UpDo No Bumps Combe has been specifically designed for this, so it’s the perfect tool for the job.

Step 3: Exaggerate the shape – The shape can be exaggerated by splitting hair into two halves and dressing it around each other, says Barton. This can be quite a difficult task so if you find it tricky it might be worth investing in some sectioning clips. The Trevor Sorbie Non-Slip Sectioning Clips are suitable for all lengths of hair so are good for the job.

Step 4: Add some volume – Barton says that you can add hair extensions to add volume to the look if you want to. The Hothair Invisible Extensions have a clear hoop that slips over your head like a headband and can be arranged around your hair. This makes it easy for you to achieve added volume in an instant.

Step 5: Add a hair accessory – If you want to be the belle of the ball you can always add a sparkling hair accessory to finish. The Butterfly by Matthew Williams is the perfect accessory.
