Hair Styles How To: Miss USA Pinned Updo

Albert Luis styled this detailed look for Miss USA 2013 Erin Brady at the Farouk Conference in Cancun. CHI Hair Spray keeps each curl in its place! Here's how to create the updo:

Set the hair using the CHI ARC (Automatic Rotating Curler) and CHI Magnified Volume Finishing Spray. Leave the curls pinned to the head as they cool. Once cool, unpin the curls, starting from the nape of the neck and stopping at the occipital bone. Comb out this section of curls, directing the hair to the back of the head and back comb at the scalp. Leave some curls around the hairline untouched. Spray with CHI Magnified Volume Finishing Spray to hold and protect against humidity. Using Royal Treatment White Truffle Foundation, pull horizontal sections from the sides and twist each section to the back of the head and pin. Continue by pinning some pieces of hair back, allowing the sides to be soft enough to showcase a wave formation. Finally, unpin and gently comb the top section of curls. Using Royal Treatment White Truffle Foundation lay these curls over the top of the back section, pinning where necessary. Adjust the top curls to complement the direction and shape of the bottom design. Finish the style with CHI Magnified Volume XF Hair Spray.
