Crimped Red Braided Updo

Added: 20 Dec 2012
Hair crimping is an amazing styling tool that has been around for years, and we believe that if you want to add volume to your hair, it is time to bring this technique back! You can use a crimper to simply swell the hair in the precise areas that need height or definition. Even though the hair is crimped, it might occasionally be hidden, but it will still add volume even if you cannot see it. These red locks are crimped all over, teased at the roots, then styled over to one, and pinned to the side to achieve this wicked updo best suited for those wanting to be center-of-attention. This look will take time to create and product for hold and shine. To add a modern twist to this look, our model has added some pink highlights to the ends of her red hair. You will need to touch up your color once every six weeks or so, but the color is ideal for those warm, hot summer months! Finally, the side parting adds another dimension to this look, making the volume more natural.

Because this style is the star of the show, you should keep your makeup application simple and natural. You can apply a simple wing liner or utilize your browns and golds on your lids. Finish with a nude or pastel lip color to show off your new dramatic, volumized Braided updo.
