This Is the Perfect Low-Key Updo, According to a Top Hairstylist

Over the last few months, we’ve had our eyes trained on a rising star in the hair industry—Los Angeles–based hairstylist Carly Walters. We’re banking on Walters becoming the next big name in hair, and to accelerate her rise to the top, we partnered with TRESemmé to send her to work her first-ever runway show at New York Fashion Week. To arm her with everything she needs to know on The Road to #TRESNYFW, we introduced Walters to four TRESemmé stylists who will mentor her, collaborate with her on a hairstyle (that you voted for on Instagram), and share tricks of the trade for getting through such a high-pressure, high-energy work environment. Be sure to check back for regular updates on Carly’s journey, and enjoy the ride!

Apparently everyone is getting married this year. We’re a little more than halfway through 2018, and we’ve already been to more weddings than we can count on one hand. These aren’t all local either—we’re basically living out of our suitcases, ICYWW, and racking up plenty of frequent flyer miles. We’re thinking you guys can relate, so we’re giving you one less thing to worry about.

After polling our followers on IG, we knew you were in need of the perfect summer wedding ’do, and TRESemmé stylist Tyler Laswell came through with this low-key updo. “I’m constantly thinking of the silhouette and shape—I want it to be beautiful from all the way around, not just from one side,” he explains of his creation, adding that he hopes Walters will learn and exercise the skill throughout her journey. Okay, let’s get to it…
