It is best to do an updo with a day old hair. If you need to wash your hair, just shower but don’t shampoo. If you’ve just shampooed your hair and it’s too soft and flyaway – you’d want to spray an anti-static spray to keep your hair in place. Or, you can do it the Angelina Jolie way, which is to smooth a dryer sheet over the hair from roots to the ends.
