Work your way from the sides to the nape of the neck in this fashion, creating
layer upon layer of upswept sections. Position the overlapping layers as desired, to
preserve the balance of the style on the head. When you've placed the last section of
hair at the nape of the neck, all that should remain are a small section of hair to the
left of the parting, and a larger section of hair across the top to the right of the parting.
Carefully mist the left side section of hair and comb it smoothly along the
hairline and anchor it at the back of the head along the lower right side of the crown
area. As this and the top section of hair are the final touches of this style, be
especially conscientious to make the section smooth. Once you're happy with this
section's placement and the hiding of the ends of the section, proceed to the top and
final section for placement.
This last section is larger than the others you will have handled, and should be
misted with hairspray and combed into a wide, smooth ribbon of hair, wrap this section
along the hairline at the right side of the head, down around the lower crown and anchor
it as you did the others on the lower left side of the crown. Pay special care to
'clipping, flipping and slipping" the bob pin anchoring this section, so that you can hide
the pin and tuck the end of the section out of sight. Spray the section again with
hairspray and smooth it gently to ensure that there are no stray hairs sticking out.
In our demo we have used two 'jeweled' combs one tucked behind another for
decoration on top of the style behind the parting, but a variety of adornments could
be used, provided they aren't overbalancing and are able to attach themselves along
the scalp. Jeweled pins or barrette, a small coronet, or even a small spray of flowers
would work if appropriate to the occasion.
The result is a style with a smooth finish, and an elegant look, and the staying
power to handle virtually any evening celebratory activity or occasion.
