Get the Look: High Updo and Red Lips
Style and Beauty By Mercedes Sanchez
50 Mas Bellos 2014
After styling the winner of the Colgate contest for People's annual 50 Mas Bellos party, I quickly shopped around for a dress of my own.
I then stopped by a new favorite beauty salon, owned by a Dominicana, to get my hair done. After one of the stylists blow dried my hair, the owner Giovanny, created this high updo in just a couple of minutes.

Because my hair is somewhat thick, Giovanny created a ponytail so that it would stay in place throughout the entire night.
How to create this hairstyle in 5 easy steps:

Giovanny Jorge says, after your hair is blown out completely straight, do the following:
1 - Divide the top portion of the hair in two sections forming a triangle.
2 -Tie the two sectioned portions of your hair in a pony tail towards the back.
3- Leave the rest of the hair down.
4- Go back to the top and tease the hair that was down with hairspray.
5- Put the hair back and pin everything together. Wrap some of the hair around the pins in order to cover the pins.
