Jennifer Lopez Sedu Hairstyles: Creating A Sleek Updo With Wavy Hair

Sleek updos may seem like forbidden fruit to those with curly or wavy hair, but the truth is you can have it if you've got the know how. One of the most popular Jennifer Lopez Sedu hairstyles is her sleek chignon. If you want your own version of this classic hairstyle, we're here to show you how.

All updos turn out better with hair that has been washed the day before. Shampoo and condition your hair the night before and apply an anti-frizz serum to your damp hair. Blow dry your hair straight using a large round brush. Take your time and try to get your hair as straight as possible. This makes touching up your Jennifer Lopez Sedu hairstyle with a flat iron the next day easier.

To create your updo, first straighten any kinks in your hair with a hot flat iron. Once all your hair is straightened decide on a part in your hair. You can go for a dramatic side part (best for a round face) or a middle part. Apply a small dab of hair wax to your palms and smooth it on the top portion of your hair from your part to the top of your ears. This makes getting that ultra smooth look that much easier.

Use a comb and pull all your hair back into a pony tail and secure it with an elastic band at the nape of your neck. Twist your pony tail until it resembles a telephone cord and slowly begin wrapping it around the base of your pony tail. Use bobby pins in the same color as your hair to secure the hair as you wrap. Tuck the ends under the bun you created and secure with two to three more pins. Give your hair a quick spray of shine-enhancing hair spray. It may take a little practice, but once you get the hang of it this Jennifer Lopez hairstyle will have you wondering why you ever dreaded wearing your curly hair up before.
