Updo in 1 Minute (best for Shoulder Length Hair)




Introduction: Updo in 1 Minute (best for Shoulder Length Hair)

Have bad hair day? Can't get it straight? Not enough time to curl up your hair?

This updo works best with mid length hair (shoulder length or 2 or 3 inches longer). If the hair length is too short,you will get frills around the edges and you may need to use a lot of hairspray.

And if the hair length is too long, it will come out lose in an hour or 2.

Try this method. Works well on hair that are straight or wavy and create an updo without visiting the salon. Save your $$$$ and time :)

The second best part: after you remove the elastic at the end of the day; you get a very nice and natural curly waves on your hair.

Give it a try and you will love it.
