Ashley Judd pins her hair back for a smooth on top hairstyle with a flurry of curls on the bottom.
Step 1: Start with dry hair that is smooth on top and curly on the bottom. Isolate a halo section on top of your head.
Step 2: Take a two-inch section within the halo and hold it straight up. Use a tight-toothed comb and backcomb in short strokes along the back of the section toward your scalp. Repeat with all sections within halo.
Step 3: Use a natural bristle brush and smooth hair on the surface of halo section as you direct it back. Use several bobby pins to secure in back. Mist with hairspray for the perfect finish.
