Wavy, Blonde Semi-updo from Straight Bobbed Hair.


Start with a standard highlighted bob, wave your magic curling wand and throw a few bobby pins in and finish with a delightful sexy half pinned wavy design. With the right styling products, you'll become your own stylist. Everything can seem monotonous eventually, for variety give your world an occasional twist. One side can be pulled up and pinned, giving a new refreshing look.

Divide into Sections.

This may require practice sessions, perseverance and patience are key. Divide the upper section off and work on the lower rear areas. Curl around the wand, the nape first then move upwards in slow increments. Moving around from one ear to the other, take small sections and wrap around the wand a few seconds until the curl holds.

This requires some volume, as curling reduces perceived density. Reaching around chin length is perfect for this but there is some leeway. Unclip the top, section it off again about 3 inches (7cm) higher and repeat the process with the new section. Repeat until the rest is complete. Give it a quick brush and you could call that the finished product with a beach wavy vibe but to add extra zest tuck one side under and pin in place. The Ombre effect she has going on works particularly well with the curls. Blues, violets, and purples would also make good companions to this. Wear this to any casual or semi-formal event. Dinner with a close circle of friends or a party, you'll be the center of attraction.

Eye color is important to bring out features. Eye color not cutting it? Try contacts. Highlight your eyes using a lot of mascara and eye shadow. Dark lip gloss will also do justice.

Using a few simple steps can alter your look completely. Surprise people with such an elegant makeover and you'll become the star in a crowd of many.
