Christmas hair tutorial, low slung updo

Low worn updo hair tutorial

And for the final piece of the festive holiday tutorial – I’m going to focus on the hair.
This low-slung up-do was requested a while back when I posted a photo of a hair and makeup look I created for as Asian wedding I attended.
Blue saree and blue eyemakeup
So I’ve created this look in real-time, using my trusty sock bun, which has seen me through many a party and wedding.  This look gives your crown volume, whilst keeping hair off the face.  Best of all, if it goes slightly messy (as mine does), it kinda looks like that was all part of the master plan.
As this festive tutorial is in real time, there are a few boo-boos, namely that I misplace my hairband, and you can all witness my panic (the beauty of un-airbrushed real-time tutorials!).

So enjoy, and let me know what hairstyles you create this Christmas.
