Get the Look Lorna Evans Wavy Bob Updo

Find out how to create this wavy bob updo in this tutorial from Lorna Evans’ Long Hair Bridal Secrets Unlocked book.


1 Apply plenty of medium hold mousse and blow-dry hair. Then section from a side parting from ear to ear.


2 Starting at the heavy side of the parting take a 2.5cm square and apply a setting spray.


3 Use a medium barrel and set the first row directing forward.


4 Alternate the rows forward and back across the top of the head.


5 Take a 2.5cm square section at the nape and create a scalp braid. Fold the braid and pin securely.


6 Tong long horizontal sections through the back and secure. Then leave one section on top of the braid straight and tease with a soft brush. Use a large plate iron to create a felt-like fabric in the hair.


7 Remove the clips and begin to work the directional set into waves and secure with waving clamps.


8 On the opposite side, place a half card to keep the side tight.


9 Rake out the back curls with your fingers, and add a root volumising powder at the crown to add texture and volume. Then gather all the hair into a low ponytail.


10 Roll under to create a bob-type finish and pin onto the scalp braid for hold.


11 Slide tiny bobby pins onto the hair at a 45˚ angle for hold and decoration.


12 Dress out the waves for a soft finish and secure.
