Short Hair Updo

Short Hair Updo

Part of the requirements for our portfolio for school is updo’s. 2 of them. On my schedule and in general you aren’t see a huge wave of clients coming in for updo’s and the like unless it’s homecoming or prom season.

We are only allowed to do updo’s on our mannequins for our portfolio because of this but no other work on our mannequins. Here is the before and after pictures of an updo I did on my womakin (mannequin) Lucy, with a short hair snap cap.

Mannequin snap cap had short to mid length hair that I had cleansed and conditioned.

I then used Bumble & bumble Styling Lotion, Color Minded Styling Balm and Brilliatine, prior to styling.

I created 2 French braids on the sides of the head going back to the nape, securing with hair pins.

The crown was set with a Bumble & bumble Round Brush Set and after cooling, separated with  Sumotech and pinned with hair pins.

I finished the style with hair powder to cover the hair pins and Bumble & bumble Classic.
