cute little updo for short hair if i could ever pull it off 1. Blow dry damp hair straight using a paddle brush. 2. Tease the hair at the crown for a little extra volume. 3. Pull back hair into a French twist by twisting all your hair to the right while pulling the ends of your hair up toward the ceiling and pinning in place. The messier the better in this step. 4. Loop ends over and tuck into French twist, pinning in place and use a bit of spray shine to glam it up a bit.
