Vintage Glamour Holiday Updo by Laken Rose for Kenra

Lauren Salapatek | October 25, 2016 | 8:10 AM

Here's a curly holiday upstyle idea by Kenra's Laken Rose

STEP 1: Set the front hairline in horizontal subsections using a 1” wand. Wrap and twist in one motion around the wand, and then clip and let cool.

STEP 2: After making a horizon section at the crown, create a singular anchor braid within the section and flat wrap the braid. Secure with three bobby pins.

STEP 3: Take 2” subsections around the anchor braid, and twist. Create fullness and added texture by deconstructing the twist.

STEP 4: Gently smooth out the set with a polish-ing brush. Lightly backcomb under-neath, smooth the top and mold the wave using Ultra Freeze Spray 30. Pin from underneath to secure closely to the front hairline.
