Yulia’s Hair Styling Tips
McAllister’s amazing stylist, Yulia Tyan, took a little time last week to give us a quick lesson on how to style a few eye-catching simple summer updos. These step-by-step instructions will help you create a fun summer hair style that suits you just perfectly. And as always, if it doesn’t quite work out like the pictures, Yulia is available Wednesday-Sunday to recreate these hairstyles (and many more) in no time at all.
This quick updo is great when you have only a few minutes to spare and are headed out into the summer’s heat!
STEP 1 – This updo starts with clean and dry hair. If it’s been a day or two since your last shampoo, KMS California’s HairPlay Dry Touch-Up is an instant, weightless surface conditioner that instantly revives dry or overworked hair and is a perfect first step to prepare the hair for this hair style.
STEP 2 – Section your hair into 3 sections (as pictured).
STEP 3 – Create a ponytail using the central section and tie it in a knot over.
STEP 4 – Then, create a second single ponytail using other two sections and knot over.
STEP 5 – Use these two ponytails and knot them over until you reach them the ends.
STEP 6 – Pin as needed and desired.
STEP 7 – To finish this hairstyle, finish with KMS’ HairStay Anti-Humidity Seal and KMS’ HairPlay Playable Texture.
Braided Flower Bun
STEP 1 – This style is super quick and takes less than two minutes, provided you know a basic plait and how to create a Dutch braid.
Start this updo with a Dutch braid on a small side section creating a loose and casual braid. Secure this braid with a clip at the end.
STEP 2 – Then, create a loose plait braid using all of the remaining hair. Secure the end of this braid with an elastic band.
STEP 3 – Wrap the loose plait braid around itself, creating a beautiful section that resembles a flower, and pin it in place with Bobby pins.
STEP 4 – Then take your Dutch braid from the side and and wrap it around the flower-shaped bun. Secure with Bobby pins. Don’t forget to tuck the ends in.
STEP 5 – To finish the this braided updo, again finish with finish with KMS’ HairStay Anti-Humidity Seal and KMS’ HairPlay Playable Texture.
