Ashlee Simpson (Apr 17th, 2008)
Ashlee Simpson’s smooth upstyle has straight bits in front, a headband style braid on top and a neatly pinned chignon in back.
Step 1: Start with sleek, dry hair. Create a side part, leave the front layers out and sweep the rest of your hair back, twisting and pinning into a bun in back.
Step 2: Take a one-inch section from above your ear on your left side and create a three-strand braid. Lay the braid over the top of your head like a headband and pin the ends into place on the other side.
Step 3: Dab pomade on your fingers and pinch the ends to create a piece-y texture. Spritz with hairspray to lock in your look.
