At 4.37 in the video: as you work your way up the head, keep winding around the same direction and mold the shape around the bud. Use longer clips to help elevate the rows as it sets.

When we posted this rose-inspired updo on MODERN's Facebook page—it was love at first sight for our 52,000 Facebook fans. In fact, this updo, which was created by Beverly Melendez at Salon Pasca in Wilmington, Delaware, is MODERN SALON's most-requested updo tutorial of.all.time. Seriously. This thing ROCKS!

So, naturally, we put our journalism skills to the test and did some cyber-stalking to track down Beverly at Salon Pasca. She not only was excited about sharing the how-to, she also created a video demo-ing how she did it for you guys! Score!

A huge thanks to Beverly and the team at Salon Pasca for being so generous to share your talent and creativity with MODERN's fans. We love you for it!

What you'll need: roller clips, duck clips, straight pics, bobby pins, firm-hold spray, and a brush and comb to tease with.
