HOW-TO: Soft Half Updo at "Godzilla" Premiere on Jamie Chung

Celebrity Stylist Emily Mott of Los Angeles salon Spoke & Weal created a relaxed, half-up updo for "Godzilla" actress Jamie Chung for the Godzilla Movie Premiere in Los Angeles on May 8, 2014. It is a look that is soft, feminine and dressed-up enough for formal occassions.

HOW-TO: Soft Half Updo at "Godzilla" Premiere on Jamie Chung


Step 1: Apply Joico Texture Boost Spray to damp/towel dried hair to maximize hold.

Step 2: Section the hair, spray each section with Joico Power Spray and do a twisted barrel curl from ends of sections holding the 1-2cm from the scalp. Let the heat penetrate hair for a few seconds before slowly releasing the curling iron keeping the curl in place and sliding the iron out horizontally from the curl. (your styling product should evaporate a little)

Step 3: Using a mixed boar bristle brush, brush out lightly and backcomb each section avoiding the very front sections surrounding the face.

Step 4: Redefine a couple curls on the surface to create a bouncy curl and pin each side section back individually with bobby pins.

Step 5: Finish with Joico Power Spray and Humidity Blocker as needed.

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was.
