Curly hair is perfect for creating all kinds of textured updos. The kinks and curves have more grip than straight hair, and curly ends make creating an interesting chignon really easy. To prove it, we have a simple tutorial below to help you achieve a curly updo of your very own!

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with clean, damp hair, scrunch a golfball-sized amount of Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse throughout, then leave your hair to air dry if you have time. If you're in a rush, blow-dry it with a diffuser.

Step 2
Once your hair is completely dry, sweep it all back into a ponytail and tie. Don't secure the pony too tightly otherwise the finished style might look too severe.

Step 3
If you want to add more volume, spray the pony with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray then muss and scrunch it with your hands.

Step 4
Grab pieces of the pony at random and twist and pin them to the back of your head until all of the loose hair has been used up to form a chignon.

Step 5
Slide your fingers under the hair on top, then gently lift them to loosen the style. Then, tease a few wispy pieces out at the front to frame your face and soften the whole look.

Step 6
Complete your new updo with a generous veil of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. That's it!
