Soft upstyle, step-by-step guide

This year we will celebrate Christmas at home, but there is no reason to give up on a special look! We suggest a chic and simple hairstyle for medium-length or long hair.

Let's take advantage of these Christmas holidays in a slowversion, to relax and take care of ourselves, confidently waiting for 2021 to begin! The extra time we will spend at home will allow us to decorate our space with greater creativity, discover new recipes with seasonal ingredients, etc. And also learn how to style our hair in a natural and elegant way! Here is our step-by-step guide.

PRO TIPS: do you know what the right height is for a ponytail or an upstyle?

You must consider the shape of your face when choosing whether to do a high or low upstyle. With a few simple tricks, you can achieve the result that enhances you the most!

  • If your chin is more protruding than your forehead, a high ponytail creates more balance. 
  • If, on the other hand, the upper part of your face is more pronounced, then opt for a low upstyle that balances the proportions.

STEP 7- Make a ponytail and then pull out a few thin sections.
