Lauren's Easy Updo

Can I confess? Will you judge? I'm going to have to take the chance.....I {heart} Lauren Conrad. I truly believe that if we were in the same town.......we would be besties! For SURE!!! She has a blog, not that I should be surprised, but I ToTaLlY didn't know that so when I found it I was pretty stoked! This updo was one of my FAVS of hers on whatever colored carpet she was on =). I am so glad that she made a tutorial on it!!! She has a giveaway going on right now and if you jump on over there you can enter to win some of her beauty favs (pictured below). Other than the giveaway she also has TONS of great tutorials on clothes, hair, makeup, and primping. What girl wouldn't love that??? Seriously, check this girl out. You will NOT be disappointed!!!

The Beauty Department's email box is literally flooded with requests for updos, so here’s a fun tutorial from Kristin Ess to get us all going!
Hair How To: Twisted Updo
This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with highlighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Best thing is; it’s easy to do, gorgeous and keeps your hair out of your way for the night.
I made this a printable tutorial, so all of the steps are next to the photos.

Tools you’ll need:
  • Curling iron (to prep the hair with waves)
  • Sectioning clips
  • Teasing comb or brush
  • Clear elastic rubber band
  • Bobby pins
  • Light to medium holding hairspray (to mist over at the end)
Thank you Kristin for this tutorial from The Beauty Department!
XO Lauren
