Off Kilter Updo's = Crazy Summer Style!



I really like these funky up-do's from the Nico Lena show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  This would be a great style for all summer long, and as seen here would take you into fall as well.  In fashion asymmetry is always a little more interesting and can help soften the effect of a more severely cut dress or suit.  They soften the hard lines.  I thought the "I Dream of Jeannie" ponytail was seriously amusing, and the ebony cinnabun was also strangely cool.  Simply pull hair that has been prepared with Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, into a high side ponytail.  Take a dab of Bb Grooming Creme and pull through ponytail whiled twisting into your version of a messy bun.  Bobby pin securely by NOT opening pins and inserting straight in and then pointing the tip towards the center of the bun and pushing up gently.  If it doesn't feel secure, it isn't!  So try again until you get the right "grip."  The key here is texture and sleekness with some sideways sass.  No need to wear the "Stepford Wife" look on your face though.  When you schedule your next haircut or color service at Beauty Hair Salon, don't forget to ask your stylist for tips on how to do your own simple, summery, up-do.
