Messy Updo

Using curls and braids Stephanie Brinkerhoff executes a rather stunning messy half up-do that would be perfect for any bride, bridesmaid or just a glamorous evening out! This is one easy to achieve look in little time. You will need tongues or hair straighteners to get the curls initially, when we recommend hot tools we would always suggest you use some sort of protection to prevent your hair becoming damaged from the heat.

No Inhibition 12 Wonders Leave In Treatment Spray not only protects your hair but also curls, adds volume and 9 other benefits at 11.99 we think its a winner. This style is perfect in bad weather as it won't frizz up and is super cool for festivals as the longer you rock it the better the hairstyle!
