Prepare to be totally amazed. When we first learned this holiday updo, we didn’t believe that it would take us less than five minutes to put together. Little did we know that this sophisticated style was one of the easiest updos we’d ever learn. Follow Birchbox Editor Candice as she walks us step-by-step through creating this chic upside down roll (some of you may know it as a Gibson roll). All you need to create this look at home is medium to long hair, a hair tie, bobby pins and hairspray—it’s really that simple. Editor’s tips: 1. If you have slippery hair, you’ll want to grab some dry shampoo or texturizing spray, like Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Texture & Volume Spray, before you get started. 2. If you have long locks, try twisting your ponytail slightly before you tuck it into the pocket of your hair.
