This updo is pulled back and and pinned in place to create this soft up-do that will turn heads at any occasion. The stunning hairstyle is easy to re-create at home and needs strong hold product to keep it in place all day or night.

Katherine McNamara goes for a classic up-do here pinning her locks up at the nape of the neck and leaving out some curls in the front. Katherine usually keeps her hair medium to long in length which suits her oval shaped face nicely. Here she softens up her wide forehead by wearing some curls that sit around her hairline and highlight her cheekbones. The swept back style of this 'do gives her face a nice lift while showing off her long neck and delicate bone structure.

Katherine has green eyes and a porcelain skin tone which makes her best suited to light blonde and copper tones of hair. Here, she goes for an all-over strawberry blonde tone that flatters her peachy complexion and showcases her striking eyes. This is a natural-looking color for Katherine that gives her tresses a soft and shiny finish.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

step 1

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Part to the Left

step 2

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

3. Flip Head and Use a Diffuser and Fingers

step 3

Tip your head upside down and move the diffuser up to the ends, motioning the diffuser to the scalp in circular movements. Make sure the blow-dryer speed is on low and try not to completely dry the hair off. Leaving a little bit of moisture will allow the hair to dry naturally.

4. Scrunch Moulding Cream Through Hair with Fingers

step 4

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then tilt your head forward and scrunch your hair.

5. Pin Hair

step 5

Once your hairstyle is complete, hold your hair into place and then pin your hair into your desired direction.
