Jenna Dewan-Tatum's Bob-to-Updo Transformation Is Pretty Magical

Look, Ma. No extensions!

As advertised, there has been no shortage of super-sexy stuff coming out of the Magic Mike XXL promo tour. We've got Channing Tatum voguing, Channing Tatum getting lost in Matt Bomer's eyes, Amber Heard's exemplary fishtail crown, and Amber Heard's brushed-out swoop. (If you couldn't tell, Amber Heard has been killing it.)

Now, to add to that impressive, follicularly blessed list, we've got Jenna Dewan-Tatum's updo from Tuesday's London premiere, which is basically a head-soufflé in the most complimentary way possible. But what's even more surprising/delicious about this style is the technical skill and problem-solving it took to achieve. Do you see?

How about now?

Jenna's Hair Merlin Dayaruci makes no mention of extensions, and her micro-French twist does look to be all her own, so we'll chalk it up to teasing, Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, and some mad skillz. (I really do think he made the main twist, then anchored the auxilliary twists to it with some extra-strength bobby pins, leaving the front waves free.)

Excellent work, everybody. Now go watch the trailer again and start composing your email to Channing Tatum about why he should just make MM a trilogy already.
