Short hair updo

A short hair updo with a small pomp and a windswept finish is a great messy hairstyle option for a night out or any other time you want to get noticed. All you need is a haircut with enough length to pin into a messy chignon at the back!

To find out how to get the look, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
This hairstyle works best with slightly dirty hair, so don't wash it beforehand. Instead, use some Advanced Hairstyle LOW DRY IT Blow Out LongWear Spray on the roots to absorb excess oil and to add some lift before you start styling.

Step 2
Section off the hair on top of your head, then mist it with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Lift the hair with one hand, then gently tease it with a fine-tooth comb to build volume.

Step 3
Gently smooth the hair back over and pin it into a pomp. Secure it at the crown of your head and bump it forward slightly as you do so to add shape.

Step 4
Pin the rest of your hair up in small, twisted pieces to form a messy chignon. If your hair is long enough, you can go for a micro-bun instead.

Step 5
Smooth down the sides with a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel to add shine. To get a really neat finish, use a comb to run the gel over your hair.

Step 6
To complete the look, mist your whole updo with hairspray to seal it against the elements and give your pomp long-lasting hold.
