Jessica Alba's Voluminous Curly Updo
Jessica Alba's piled up curls creates a slightly mod and incredibly feminine look. To duplicate her style, begin with tresses that are loosely curled. Natural curl is great, but if hair needs additional texture, use a large-barreled curling iron or set hair on hot rollers. Next, section out the bangs and any shorter layers around the face. Also, section out another large swath of hair running from right in back of the bangs to the crown and creating a bang going from ear to ear. Take all of the remaining hair and loosely pull it into a high ponytail. Twist the ponytail loosely, wrap it around its base to create a large messy bun and use bobby pins to secure. Then, backcomb through the band of hair next to the bun. Next, take one and two-inch pieces from the backcombed section, twist them loosely and loop them at random around the part of the bun nearest the top of the head. Try to maintain as much volume as possible when pinning the hair in place and spread the curls out to cover the entire top of the head. To finish, release the bangs section and mist the entire 'do with hairspray.
