Fall is the perfect time to indulge in a little style reinvention. Amplify your fiery red hair with a sophisticated, classical updo that takes a page out of Greek mythology. Your red hair is sure to stand out more than usual with this hairstyle, whether you’re wearing it for a glamorous everyday look or done up for Halloween night.

1. Prep Your Red

Wash hair with Radiant Red® Colour Magnifying Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your bold red hue vibrant. Gently towel-dry strands, then spritz Luxurious Volume Blow-Dry Lotion Root Booster onto hair, concentrating on the roots. This will help create lasting lift, a key element to this style.

2. Create Lift Potential

Apply Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse from roots to ends, which will thicken your strands, boost volume and hold this style all day. Begin to blow-dry hair, using a round brush to pull hair up at the roots to maximize lift.

3. Start to Style

With small sections of hair, begin to curl them with a hot curling iron from root to tip (a 1-inch barrel will help create smaller curls). To make sure curls hold sans the frizz, spray with a hairspray, like Frizz-Ease® Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray.

4. Loose and Shiny

Use fingers to gently loosen your curls up and rub a dime sized amount of Frizz-Ease® Secret Weapon® Flawless Finishing Crème to smooth flyaways and add glossy shine. Then, push up and pin the top half of your hair for some volume, then continue pinning up the rest of your curls into a loose and gorgeous pile at the back of your head.

5. Finish the Look

Add a little sparkle with a metallic element. Wrap a long chain once near the front of your head and again near the crown of your head to anchor this whole look together. This will also accentuate the volume you’ve created. Finish with a light veil of hairspray.

This Grecian inspired updo is modern and glamorous enough to wear for a night out, but combined with the right accessories, it can also make for a great Halloween ensemble. Channel your inner goddess by adding gladiator sandals and a white toga to complete the look.
