Martin Parsons, the king of the updo, met with MODERN in New York City just moments before he took the stage at the IBS 2014 to show his latest silhouettes. "Today, looks are more sophisticated with cleaner lines," he says. "Hair is more coiffed." Parsons points out that there are three keys to creating the perfect updo:

-Tease properly and evenly.

-Begin at the higherst point of the head and work down.

-Use spray to direct the hair.

Parsons also points out that professionals should use a spray that offers a light mist (Parsons uses the spray he designed specifically for updos).

In the second video, Parsons shows HOW TO get volume and body in hair. It's a perfect demo for both you and your client.
