Dancing diva Paula Abdul rocks a dramatic 'do with a half-up hairstyle and thick, sweeping side bangs.
Step 1: Start with dry hair that is volumized on top but wavy on the bottom. Take a two-inch section from on top of your head 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 on top of your head.
Step 2: Leaving a few pieces out in front, use your fingers to smooth hair on the surface as you direct it back. Pin securely into place in back.
Step 3: Finish with a light mist of hairspray for all-day hold.
