Get the Look: Cool Upgraded Updo

Step 1: Brush hair into a low pony.

Start off by brushing all of your hair back into a low ponytail and use a hair tie to secure it. Note: If you’ve ever been caught wondering where exactly to place your updo, consider tying it an inch or two above your collar. This is the perfect and most flattering height for a low updo.

Step 2: Use a hairspray to hold it in place.

Next, spritz an extra hold hairspray like TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray all over the ponytail to hold your work in place. Take care to cover all of your hair with hairspray so that the entire style stays secure.
