Today we tried a more volumous updo.
We’ve got plenty of styles to try so if you have any requests let me know in the comments!

Volumous Updo – Short Hair Style Instructions
Meet Stef, she has short hair and it totally awesome.
Today we’re trying out an updo with a bit of volume.
Start by picking up a section of hair at the top.
Tease the whole section and hair spray it.
Concentrate the teasing on the back part of it.
Done! Just kidding.
Shape the pouf down with your hands.
Stef has super nice smooth hair so I just needed my fingers and to lightly drag the comb for a very smooth finish.
You may need to comb through a little bit more.
Pin it at the back.
You may need to comb it a little bit more for a smooth finish.
Tease both sides as well and hairspray them too.
The pouf ends up quite a bit smaller once we’ve pushed it down because this isn’t really an extreme look.
Pull the first side backwards and pin it in the same place as you pinned the top.
Again, just brushing through with my fingers to make it smooth.
And the other side.
To make it more interesting or if you have shorter hair you can twist it as you go to keep all of the straggler bits together.
Tease the rest of the hair at the bottom, grab it and roll it upwards.
Again, pin it in the same place as the others.
Most of the volume here ends up at the back.
Use more hairspray if there are any stray pieces hanging down.
If you feel you need more volume and your hair is short enough, you can just tease the top areas more and lay them back down and respray.
Special thanks to Stef for being my awesome model/victim for the day.
