This beautiful portrait of a woman in the early 1900's shows how a turn of the century updo is done.
This beautiful young woman is wearing her long hair pulled up into a faux bob that is created with curls and bobby pins to show a bit more a modern look for that time period as opposed to a simple slicked back style. She has her bangs parted off to the side with a short part. The top of the crown is brushed back and there is some lift here that is done with back combing. Pin curls placed when hair is wet allows for styling after it has dried. There is most likely a low bun placed at the back to hold the length up.
