Vanessa Hudgens-Inspired Updo

1. Curl your hair with a curling iron. Pin up the curls while they are warm to get a tighter curl and better hold.

2. Once the hair has cooled, release the curls and backcomb a bit to get more volume and separate the curls.

3. Then create a poof! First backcomb the front hair, and spritz some light hair spray on it for hold.

4. Smooth out the top layer, gather the front hair to create the poof, and secure it with bobby pins.

5. Then take small pieces of hair from the sides, and pin them back. Do it on both sides.

6. Do the same all the way down to the nape of the neck.
