Tools for Creating Sixties Updos
Teasing your hair is a required skill for creating sixties-style updos. You need a styling comb, hairspray, and a few bobby pins or clips.
How to Create Sixties Updos
1. First divide your hair into three portions and temporarily secure the top hair and the hair over the forehead on top of your head. Now you can create the sixties updo starting with the hair in the back of your head.
2. Twist the hair in the back of your head into a banana updo and secure it with hidden bobby pins.
3. Now tease the top layer of your hair using a styling comb until you reach the desired volume. Teasing hair is more effective if you alternate teasing and applying hairspray. Carefully layer the teased hair back around the banana updo and secure the ends with hidden bobby pins as needed.
4. In the last step, tease the hair above the forehead and loosely layer it over the updo. Secure the strands with hidden bobby pins. Use as much hairspray as necessary to hold the updo in place.
This sixties updo is sure to make you the star of the evening. Who could take the eyes off this simple but elegant updo from the swinging sixties?
