's polished half-up, half-down style is perfect for those black tie charity events or perhaps a dress-up holiday party. To get lots of smoothness, blow-dry tresses with a large round brush and add some curl to hair ends with a large-barreled curling iron. If you prefer more body or curl, set dry hair on hot rollers. Next, backcomb all the hair on top of the head to create some height. Then smooth back all the hair above the ears, keeping the volume through the front hairline and crown, and secure with a hair elastic or bobby pins. Finish the look by misting with a little hairspray.
