A sweeping barrel curl adds a unique balance to Christina Aguilera's polished updo.
Step 1: Avoiding the top six inches, mist a one-inch section of dry hair with styling spray and wrap it around a medium curling iron. Hold in place a few seconds to set. Slide the iron out, leaving the curl intact and repeat all over.
Step 2: Take a large section on top and smooth it out with a natural bristle brush. Lift the section straight up and starting at the ends, roll the hair from side to side. Pin the barrel curl into place from the underside.
Step 3: Sweep the rest of your hair back into a ponytail.
