I cut Ria’s long layered hair (basically trimmed the dry ends) and then decided to do an updo that would look like short wavy hair. This is a really easy updo that you can pull off every day. It doesn’t have to be on a special occasion, as it doesn’t look formal at all. Actually the more it looks like you did it in five minutes, the better. All you need is wavy or curly hair on the top of your head, be it natural or having spent five minutes using a curling tong, plus a lot of hairpins. I was inspired by (1950’s icon) Lucille Ball’s trademark hairdo and the french twist Madonna had in her Borderline video.
