Updo on Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood’s masterfully messy updo proves that “big hair” can be elegant. Start with a deep side part and set hair in large-barrel rollers. Unroll and begin teasing hair at the nape of the neck, then the back of the head and finally at the crown, misting with hairspray as you work to create texture and lift. Pin top and side sections out of the way and create a loose bun using the underneath sections of hair; secure with an elastic and pull out sections here and there. Next, sweep top and side sections back toward bun, pinning them in place. Pull out shorter layers and wisps at the neck and set style with firm-hold hairspray.
