How to Get a Banded Updo Hairstyle Like Amanda Seyfried

How-To: Amanda Seyfried's Sweet and Simple Up 'Do

It seems like the headband/up 'do combination is having another moment. In the last week alone, both Jessica Alba and Amanda Seyfried have worn the semi-Lagerfeld inspired style. And it's easy to see why—the look is chic, uncomplicated, and flattering on everyone. Here's how to create the style yourself:

Before drying and/or straightening your hair, apply a golfball-sized dollop of volumising mousse, like David Babaii for Wildaid Amplifying Whipped Mousse ($22.50), from root to tip.

Once your hair is dry, backcomb from the crown of your head to directly above your ears to create the necessary volume.

Put on your headband—the thinner the better. Wraparound elastic bands are perfect for this look.

Gather the rest of your hair high up on the back of your head, almost at the crown, and pin it under into a soft, messy bun.

Go over the style with a healthy spray of super hold hairspray, like TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray ($3.99).
