WATCH: 5 Quickie Videos For Summer Upstyling

In need of some major upstyling inspo? What about proper prepping techniques? Whether you’re crafting styles for spring festival goers or a summer bridal party, BTC Team Member @annette_updo_artist has your inspo! And because she is constantly creating and sharing her intricate and elegant upstyling methods, we’re sharing five of her most-watched quickie tutorials + a few fast tips for styling her warm-weather ’dos.

 

Products Used

 

1. WATCH: The Rope Braid Quickie

Quick Tip:

  • To add fullness to a braid, apply Biolage R.A.W Texturizing Styling Spray before starting, then pinch and pull (also called “pancaking”), while holding the braid loosely. Too tight a grip will create frizz instead of bulk.

 

 

2. WATCH: The Short To Long Quickie

Quick Tip:

  • Upstyles on shorter hair ARE possible with the right products—here are Annette’s three go-tos:
    • Biolage R.A.W. Frizz Control Styling Spray—use on each section before looping and pinning them into place.
    • Clip-in extensions—use randomly to add additional length and volume.
    • The Hot Tools Professional Curl Bar to create the best texture for the finished look.

 

 

3. WATCH: French Twist Quickie

Quick Tip:

  • Prep with the Frizz Control Styling Spray to keep the upstyle smooth while locking the look in place. 
  • Camouflage bobby pins by sliding them into the updo without opening them up. This allows for less hair to enter, providing a better hold.

 

4. WATCH: Infinity Braid Quickie

Quick Tip:

  • Infinity braids require clean, tight sections—prep with Biolage R.A.W. Replenish Oil Mist to keep the hair sleek and smooth while working. 

 

5. WATCH: Braided Updo Quickie

Quick Tip:

  • Unsightly part lines in braided styles happen when hair is overdirected forward into the braid. Avoid this by adding hair from underneath the braid.
  • Use the Biolage R.A.W Texturizing Styling Spray to add fullness to the end result.
