^ Great!! But I have curly-ish hair, so should I maybe blow dry it too or something?

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out what they put in the models' hair to make it flat and sleek like this... and frizz-free... I like that it's shiny but not wet-looking --I tried a pomade that was too smelly and made it look too wet.

Gius - I use a Paul Mitchell smoothing product called Super Skinny Serum, which helps to smooth frizzy hair. The result is hair that isn't too shiny, but not dry, either. However, I think part of the reason why the hair at the Prada show was so sleek and straight was because they pulled the hair into a ponytail.

Anybody know how to achieve this hairstyle? I've made an attempt to do it on my hair, but I have a feeling I don't have all the products needed.

Any ideas on this hairstyle? I left large rollers in my hair overnight, but I suspect they were too big as my hair hardly curled at all. Could I use a curling iron to achieve this look, or am I stuck with rollers? As for the rest of the hairstyle - looks like I'd have to backcomb the hair and pull back some of the hair in the front (then pin it in the back), then apply hairspray.

If anybody could offer advice, I'd be very grateful. I have another picture that may help.

the only thing really about updos that i've learned is have the hair a little greasy, curl the entire head, and then work from there. backcombing is also the best thing in the world.

seanutbutter, that looks to me like just curling the ends with a curling iron and backcombing your hair in a headband section and combing it back. lots of hairspray!

Thanks for the advice! I just have one question - what do you mean by the headband section?

I feel kind of silly, but how do I achieve this? I would just braid my bangs and bobby pin it, no? I don't have any bobby pins on hand so I haven't tried.


not sure if i have to source here, but i got this picture off of livejournal.

^ Looks to me like she's just clipped the braid in the back, either with a bobby pin or other variety of hair clip. A small barrette would probably work, if you have one on hand.

^^ I love that look! I'm going to try something similar tomorrow, except I'm going to wear my hair up and do more of a crown like braid around my head.

Just wanted to let you all know that I finally, finally figured this hairstyle out. I want to my hairstylist yesterday and she, as usual, worked magic on my hair.

Her method was actually quite simple - instead of using rollers or a curling iron to get the curls, she used a flat iron. The result was a very tight curl at the ends, which she adjusted slightly to create larger, looser curls. And, like PonyShow said in another post, she backcombed my hair on the top of my head (and used plenty of hairspray).

Here are a few comparison pictures to show how similar the hairstyle is. I'm so happy to know it's not as difficult as I initially thought! I'm on the right in each picture (of course).
