Perfectly Undone: How To Get A Laid Back Updo

Rachel Adler

Since no one wants to look like they tried too hard (the days of men liking that you spend hours grooming yourself seem to be over) we instead take time in the morning to perfect our effortless look. Whether that be tousled waves, a natural face, or slightly mussed up yet sleek locks, we all want to look finished yet not too finished.

Dominick Pucciarello of Mizu Salon shows us how to take this casual look to another level with our updos keeping them a bit messy and relaxed. Follow his tips below!

Curl the hair, wrapping big chunks around the iron. Change the direction of the curl with every section to give the hair more body and keep it from looking too perfect. Always curl the two front sections away from the face.
