If you’re into androgynous hairstyles or want to fake a short haircut to see how it would look, we have the perfect updo for you! This slick, side-parted hairstyle is easy to achieve, it works for most hair lengths, and the minimalist feel lends itself perfectly to statement makeup and wardrobe choices.
To get the look, just follow the tutorial below.
How to style it
The really great thing about this updo is that you don’t need to wash and dry your hair first. Before styling, use a paddle brush or wide-tooth comb to detangle your mane and you’re good to go.
Use a tail comb to trace a deep side part, then comb the hair through on either side to fix it in place.
Place a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel on your fingertips, then gently rub your hands together to spread it out.
Sweep the gel back through your hair, starting at your hairline and working your way back.
Keep adding more gel as needed until you have a good all-over sheen.
Comb the hair through to smooth the gel evenly thoughout, then gather it all back into a low knot or messy updo. If you have fairly short hair, you might find it easiest to twist and pin the hair up in small sections.
Use your hands to smooth down the top and sides of the style, then double check the back to finish.
