Beautiful updo with shaven sides for African American women

Wavy black hair is sculpted into an updo for an haute women's hairstyle. The entire crown section of hair, a dense black interwoven with locks of reddish-brown, is prepped for the locks and curls to keep their shape. Everything is then pulled up and sprayed in place, no mean feat with the volume of the short lustrous curls. Edges are tamed so that no spikes ruin the slightly rounded outline of the updo. Sides and back are cropped very closely to the skull, leaving the jawline and ears clear.
