Hair Tutorial {Gatsby Updo}

Im so excited to be sharing this hair tutorial with you today! It was inspired from my instagram photo I posted a few weeks ago showing my updo of the day. I was told so many times that day that I looked very "Gastby" and had tons of people asking me how I did my hair! It is seriously such a simple updo and I decided to make you all a little tutorial so you can mix up your everyday loose curls and ponytails. I know I am always looking for new quick ways to spice up my everyday do! Enjoy!  

Step 1- Start by separating your bangs (If you have them) from the rest of your hair. Then style them whichever way you like. I used a curling iron.

Step 2- Tease the crown of your head a bit, this will add some volume.
Step 3- Then all you have to do is put your pretty headband on top of your hair like a crown (while your hair is down) and then grab the rest of your hair at the back and tuck it into the headband. The messier the better!
Step 4-Pull out your bangs. Now how simple was that! You have yourself a pretty updo in less than 5 minutes!
