Today I decided to do this very literal s updo I've gotten a lot of requests for madmen hairstyles and some from Pan Am when that was on and things like that and because I've been loving this whole retro hair style thing I thought I would go ahead and give it a try it is really literal you might not want to take it as far as I did but it would be really good for a costume look or if you wanted to tone it down a little bit definitely wearable for every day. So I hope you guys liked it and I'll see you my next post well bye are you on a separate think oh that's about an inch away from the hairline.
So very close to the front and then you're gonna go ahead and split the hair in half around the occipital bone which is about your height if you're not familiar with that and then move the lower half of the hair out of the way then we're gonna tease the top in sections starting at the very top of the head like the apex of the head and moving back in inch sections and you want to tease up the hair shaft This going to be a ton of teasing because that's what they did back in the Mad Men kind of days is that they did a ton ton of teasing in their hair. So you're gonna get a lot in there. So you can create a nice bit of volume and it's gonna help you the most if you have a hard time getting this volume in there is to go up the hair shaft sometimes you want to save right around the roots but going further up really helps now you can go ahead and twist and remove this lower hair all the way out of the way and then you're gonna take the hair back and collect it and just kind of smooth the top out you don't want to be able to see that's used from the top then you're gonna gather all the hair together in the back and make sure it's arranged nicely it's a lot of volume and then you're going to twist or braid the hair all the way down now for me because my hair is.
So long it would have been easier to braid it but it looks better for the finished product if you twist it.

So if you have shorter hair you're not going to mind the twists if you have really long hair you might want to braid it and then you're gonna roll it back up and hide that fun underneath all the other stuff that we just did and then you're gonna pin into that fun and pin the bun against your head and with all the teasing and all the twisting we have going on it'll stay really well then you're gonna comb the front if you have full-on bangs you can just leave them down or if you have long stuff like I do you can just arrange it and pin it back see here I'll putting it into the base and I use healthy sexy hair to help me just get a little bit of shine I love this hairspray for adding shine and a little bit of hold as well and I use it at times like these. So I can make sure I don't get any flyaways cuz I really wanted that to lay nice and smooth against my head. So I'll giving it a little spray and then combing it and then placing that back and you'll see when I turn around that I append these right underneath the bump that.
I’d done before. So basically we're gonna repeat all that with the low or high if you're gonna take your hair and an inch section starting with the top of it you're going to cheese you don't have to do quite as much teasing on the bottom thank goodness but you do need to get a little bit of teasing in there to get your shape. So take your little sections and tease as you see fit and then collect all your hair together and again you can twist all the way down the hair and again the braiding would be easier if your hair is as long as mine because once you get to having a lot of that hair twist up it just gets a little bit difficult to control it all then roll it back up hide it underneath what we've already done and pin it in place and you can see your hair might kind of want to stray out to the side like minded you just arrange it with your hands that's easing is gonna make it. So much more manageable you're gonna be able to kind of mold it a little bit like clay hairy hairy clay but you know it'll build a lot easier because of all the teasing and then you can add a little hair band if you like I kind of liked how it looked better with the hair band myself and that's it now here's how I get the teasing out of my hair is that you basically take the hair and you start at the ends of the hair and then you work it back towards the roots just brushing very patiently until you get it all out of the way but it only took me two minutes to rush all the teasing out you just start at the ends and slowly work up to the top of the hair and that's it hope you guys liked it.
