The Eva Longoria Updo

We’ve got to admit that Eva Longoria has a ton of moxie when it comes to being versatile with her hairstyles. Her particular updo that intrigues us was the up/down/ and all around all-in-one hairstyle she’s been sporting of late. She will usually have a small and short center in the middle and coiled tendrils loosely hanging around her face. The rest of hair will be gathered to the back loosely and secured with pins. It’s elegant enough for a formal event, yet also gives the impression of being wind-blown and free spirited. If you can, right now, picture Ms. Longoria running nonchalantly through a meadow with her hairstyle bouncing all about, then you’re definitely getting the feel that was aimed for her.

Tutorial: How to Do the Eva Longoria Updo

  1. Condition, wash, and apply your most favorite styling lotion. You’re going to be using medium and large rollers both intermittently.
  2. Section the small part and save it for later on. Start off by taking small and irregular sections. Wrap some of this hair towards your face. Wrap other sections backside away from your face. Some sections will be wrapped upwards, while other will be wrapped down.
  3. Repeat the same thing at the back with some going down and others going up. Every single thing you roll should be an irregular section. First, wrap the medium-sized roller. Then, wrap the larger roller. Then, go back to the medium roller and so on and so forth. Only the front area should be run over with a medium-sized curling iron.
  4. When all the hair is dry, vigorously brush out and comb back the hair gently. Bring all the hair back except the few twists near the top and side of your head. Fasten these in place with a comb or clasp of your preference.
  5. Next, spray the hair while you bring it out with one hand. Place the curls in the positions you want. This isn’t a very stuck-up or polished style, so a little bit of wiggle room does exist with respect to where you want to place your curls. Having strands sticking out in odd places or curly twirls is nothing to worry about. It will only enforce the ‘free’ look you’re trying to achieve here.

  10. If the coils are too tight near the sides, pull them down and spray a bit. Focus on aiming the large curling iron at the top while you wrap the curls back.

The ‘meadow look’ is something that can only be perfected by doing. So, go for it!
