When styling your hair, you often go for buns or ponytails because they are quick and easy to do. But you can also add a sophisticated touch to your everyday hairstyle by going for the classic curls-and-headband combo. It’s reminiscent of the glamorous hairstyles that are popular in the 1920s. And in this tutorial, we’ll show you how to style a curly updo with headband so you can rock this ‘do whenever you want.

Step 1

Start with clean hair

Give your hair a good wash. Use Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo to make your hair smoother, softer, and more fragrant. If you have colored hair, follow up with Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner to protect your hair from dullness and dryness.

Step 2

Protect from heat

Using heat-styling tools increases your hair’s risk of getting dry and damaged. So, before using that curling wand, spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair. It protects your hair from heat and helps smoothen out frizz. Don’t forget this step before you make a curly updo with  headband.

Gather and clip hair

Take a section of hair at the top of your crown and twist it into a bun. Use a clamp to secure it in place.
