The Retro-Modern Pouf

This voluminous half-up updo gives you the visual impact of a bun or a twist, and it requires far less maintenance throughout the night, says Paul Warren, the New York City hairstylist who created this style. It can work for any texture or length (except very short). To create the effect: Start building body, prep damp hair with a dose of volumizing mousse equal to the size of about 1½ golf balls. “Rough-dry” hair by blow-drying while tousling with fingers. Once your hair is completely dry, to amplify volume, set it in six to eight large hot rollers. Once they’re cool, remove the rollers and run your fingers through your hair to loosen the curl a bit. Next, back-comb at the hairline and crown for extra lift, using a flat-backed brush (which creates a looser tease than a comb). Smooth the teased areas lightly with the brush and secure each side with a comb placed just behind the crown. Set with spray.

Products to try: L’Oréal Paris EverStyle Volume Boosting Mousse ($7, drugstore.com) and Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray ($4.50 at drugstores).
