Emergency Updo

November 17, 2009

The Worst Case Scenario Survival Guide: Weddings, (Mojuba’s kindred spirit) not only has dress disaster solutions, but also instructions for what to do when you hair just won’t cooperate (ladies you know what I’m talking about). Here are the instructions from the survival guide for an emergency wedding updo:

1. Brush your hair back from your forehead.  Comb it long enough to make the hair on top of your head smooth.

2. Gather your hair at the nape, slightly to the left, as if your were going to put it in a low ponytail.

3. Twist the hair twice, in a clockwise direction, to anchor it in place.  You can also use bobby pins to hold the hair in place.

4. Brush the remaining hair down toward the direction of the nape of your neck.

5. Twist it clockwise while lifting the ends.  You are creating a roll effect on the back of your head

6. Continue to twist until the roll feels tight and secure

7. With your right hand, fold the ends down toward the nape of your neck, under the twist

8. Pin the roll in place.  Use your left hand to hold the twist in place while your right hand works the bobby pins.  Slide one long pin in the bottom, going up the middle.  Insert a final pin at an angle through the side of the roll.  Finish with enough small bobby pins to secure the twist and smooth any ruffled areas.

9. Pull out a few loose tendrils.  Loosen a few strands of hair around your face for a  more romantic look. Curl the strands with a curling iron if one is available.

10. Spray the twist in place with hairspray.

Of course an emergency updo would not be possible without your Bride Mojuba Wedding Emergency Kit! Mojuba has all the Charles Worthington Take Aways hairspray you need to keep your and your  bridesmaids’ hair in place, plus over 70 quality bobby pins (enough so that if you loose a few you’ll still be in good shape). Consider this hairy problem, solved!
