A Classic Updo Hairstyle with a Modern Edge in 3 Easy Steps

Gigi Hadid’s undone updo hairstyle has a classic elegance. The textured finish gives a modern edge to this romantic look.

The Undo Updo in 3 Easy Steps

  1. Style on dry hair. Start by lightly teasing the roots to give the hair some texture; this will help prevent the bun from slipping out. Create a centre parting and focus on getting some lift at the crown.
  2. Make a low, loose ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure it with a band. Maintain a loose hold. So the hair is not too close to your scalp. Tease the hair with fingers, pulling and allowing pieces to fall out of the band.
  3. Loosely plait the back of your hair and twist it into a loose bun. Secure the bun with hair pins and finish with a fine spritz of hair volumiser.

TIP: If your hair is curly, skip teasing, as it will have lots of texture and hold naturally.

“Beauty Bible fell in love with this mask when we discovered it at a Cosmetic Executive Women product demo evening. The brand comes from a London hair salon, and the mask is a huge boon for hair – packed with avocado, olive oil, aloe vera, nettle and horsetail, together with sage (which is rich in vitamins A, C and E). Just a sniff of this rich, unctuous deep conditioner perks you up. Use for gleaming shiny, healthy hair.”
