I'm in love with Nikki Reed's super simple yet outrageously chic summer updo from the 2012 Do Something! Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. August 19! Anyone can pull off an interpretation of this look using their own natural texture, no blow-drying required. No better time to try it than on steamy August nights! Reed's stylist, the gorgeous and uber-talented Mara Roszak, tells Us Weekly how to get the look.
On dry hair, part in the middle, spray Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray all over hair and twist the front sections on both sides and pin in place. This adds a nice texture to the hair. Let the hair dry with the surf spray in it.
To add a bit more fluff and texture, I used Serge Normant dry shampoo all over. Pull the remaining hair low to one side and twist into a loose bun shape and pin in place. In twist the front sections, allow a few pieces to fall out around the face and pull the rest back into the pun and pin up. Spray all over with Elnett hairspray.
