Our newest Blog is on Word Press and just started so it isn't as full. I want to learn how to link the two lenses or transfer content. I like the look and feel of the lens but it is definitely for those who have some blogging and administration experience.

Biggest Loser Wavy Updo

Matthew Holman's Wavy Updo for Alison Sweeney on a recent episode of The Biggest Loser!

The first thing you have to do is start with a good blow-dry. Make sure to use quality products, too, including a heat protector and something for root lift. The key to this look, Matthew says, is a tool called a rod, which comes in different sizes for different types of curls.

A rod is different from a curling iron because there’s no clamp. Matthew used a one-inch rod on my hair to get a tighter wave. And then he used this fairly simple process:

1. Divide your hair into horizontal sections starting from the nape of the neck, and wrap sections (about the width of two fingers) around the rod from the roots to the ends. Alternate wrapping around from the left and the right with each curl.

2. At the top of your head, wrap the hair in sections from the front hairline to the crown, creating waves that move away from your face. Again, alternate how you wrap the hair around the rod, from the left and then from the right.

3. Once your hair is wavy, divide your hair from ear to ear and clip the front sections out of the way.

4. Take the back section of your hair and divide it in half. Twist each half into a loose bun and pin in it place with bobby pins.

5. If you want to wear a headband, put it on now so you can drape the front sections in or over it. (Matthew used a multi-colored rhinestone headband for my hair.)

6. Use a comb to place small sections of hair under the headband and alternate laying sections of hair over it. Pin each section into place.

7. Take a good look at your hair and make slight adjustments for balance, pulling down a few curls on the side where you think they'll look best.
