Elise Neal's Updo

Here's a photo of Elise Neal at Vivica A. Fox's Fabulous 50th Birthday Party in Beverly Hills on the 2nd of August, 2014. Elise's dark brown hair is highlighted with chunky medium-and light-brown pieces to create dimension and movement in her hairstyle.
To create this look at home, use relatively straight-styled hair that has only been washed a day or two before. This is because up-styles like this hold better when the hair-shaft is coated in a thin layer of natural oil produced by the hair-follicle, which also helps in giving the hair that glossy, healthy shine.
Note that Elise's long bangs are brushed slightly to the side, to the direction of her hair-bun styled also to the side of her head. Make a low, side-pony-tail just beneath the occipital-bone. Remember to leave a piece out just behind the opposite ear.
Style the pony-tail into a fairly-neat bun with volume, securing the hair-tresses into place with black bobby-pins, using the fold of the hair-bun to disguise the pins. Curl the small loose section of hair at opposite ear with a large barrel curling iron, and let it settle before spraying it with hair-spray.
Complete this look with a high-shine spray, before spraying the hair with a strong-hold hair-spray to keep the style in place and block out any humidity.
