Our hairstyle to cover today is from the always sexy Eva Mendes.

This updo would make a fabulously sexy prom hairstyle. The large, side-swept bang lends an air of glamour to what could have been a run of the mill updo.

While we can’t see the back of this prom hairstyle I’m going to place bets it’s probably a version of the very popular chignon that tons of celebrities are sporting on the red carpet these days.

To create this style yourself set your hair on large hot or Velcro rollers to give your hair some body. When your hair is set brush out the waves and lightly backcomb your roots to pump up the volume. Now section off a large bang section as shown in the picture. Make sure you reach way over to create the big sweep effect.

Now gently smooth the rest of your hair, leaving the bang section out, and place in a low lying ponytail. Divide that ponytail into two equal sections. Wrap the first section around your fingers so it spirals like a telephone cord and then wraps the section around the base of the ponytail, securing with bobby pins as you go. Repeat this process with the other section and wrap it around the base of the ponytail going the opposite way of the first section. Secure each section well.

Now gently smooth out the bang area. Coat your hands with a little hairstyling wax to remove any flyaways and define the ends. Finish off with a light hold hairspray.
