Hi, I'm Summer Spence. I'm a cosmetologist. I am at The Wedding Cottage Hawaii, and I'm going to show you how to do a Selena Gomez updo. For a Selena Gomez updo, you'll need a comb, bobby pins, an alligator clip and a working hairspray. To start we're going to section the hair in the middle back of the head and clip this up out of our way. Then working with this bottom section we're going to divide that into three sections, one, two, three, like this and then in the center section you're going to take your comb and you're going to backcomb. You're going to take this section and you're going to do a barrel curl and then spray and smooth it over. Take your bobby pin and secure that in place. Then we're going to do the same on this section. Okay you're going to pin just like you do in the center and then you're going to do this side just the way you did this side. Now we've done three sections on the bottom creating nice full barrel curls that's going to set the stage for the rest of our updo to be pulled back here low and full. I'm going to section the middle section out and work with this. Then we're going to do the same and divide that into three sections. So we're going to backcomb except for this time we're going to warp the barrel curl down, spray and smooth. Then we're going to take this side section and we're going to backcomb the same but this way we're going to backcomb it on the inside because we're going to smooth over this way. So the backcombing is to get plenty of volume because Selena Gomez has a lot of hair so her updos always are very full. Then we're going to take that section and just cross over and pin. Taking this section and backcombing, just like you did on this side and then smoothing the front. So before you cross over give it a good spray, crossing over and pinning in place. Then taking a second bobby pin and securing that, take the two ends and cross over and then loop them together. It's a way to get a crisscross and to get these ends to interact with each other. Now we're going to take out this top section and we're going to divide this top section into two and we're going to backcomb and then let that fall forward, spray really well. We're going to do a little bit of backcombing here. So you're going to twist that down into the updo and then pin up into that twist to secure it. Selena Gomez always had an elegant look but it's usually very full and somewhat messy. So again, creating that knot to cover where that twist and securing in place and then taking that and twisting that up, spray as you go. Take the loose ends and fill in any holes that you find leaving out the tails, taking this top section, creating volume on the top with your twist, pinning to secure, take this last section, spray, creating a loose barrel curl, pin that in place. Okay now that you have the holes filled in, you just spray, smoothing out any flyaways. I'm Summer Spence and I just showed you how to do a Selena Gomez updo.
