How To: Quick Easy Updo Hairstyle

Here is a quick and easy updo that I did for one of my recent image consulting photo shoots.  If you are new to doing hairstyles this is super easy and can be completed in less than 10 minutes.

Perfect for every day or dressy occasions!

All you need are the following:

* Hair elastic

* Bobby pins

* Hairspray

* Hair serum

* Hair accessories for embellishment

Step 1:

Apply a bit of hair serum to the hair (we did not use any serum on the image above, hence the slight frizz)

Step 2:

Pull hair back and secure in a high ponytail.

Step 3:

Take small sections of the hair and wrap around your fingers rolling towards the base of the ponytail. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 4:

Apply hairspray for extra hold.

Step 5:

Add a jewel head band (like above), crystal pins or flowers as embellishment.

I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial.

Change your hairstyle without cutting your hair


NORMALLY STRAIGHTEN YOUR HAIR? WEAR IT CURLY

To keep springy curls like these soft (but still defined), comb a cocktail of rinse-out conditioner (a half-dollar-size dollop) and gel (just a dime-size squirt) through wet hair and leave it in while hair air-dries.

NORMALLY DO A MIDDLE PART? TRY THE SIDE

Many women, like our model, have a cowlick along their hairline. A side part positioned directly opposite the cowlick creates a slight lift, adding height where the hair falls over it. And soft waves are a stunning complement to this silhouette. Use a large-barrel curling iron on three-inch sections of hair, from the ears to the ends (you want to keep the hair above the ears smooth). Brush through the ringlets, and rub a light serum on your palms before gently patting down any flyaways.

NORMALLY LEAVE YOUR HAIR DOWN? PULL IT UP

Forget the word updo, with its connotations of bridesmaids and uptown matrons. The effect here is sophisticated, not stuffy. Just use your hands to rake back hair, and secure it above the nape of your neck. Tease the length of the ponytail to create texture, then pin the ends into a messy bun.

Celebrity Style – Holiday Party Hair Ideas from Allure

Taylor Swift:

Make a deep side part. Wrap two-inch sections of hair around a one-inch curling iron. Once you’ve curled your entire head, pull all the hair toward the nape of your neck, covering your ears. Flip the ends under and pin them in so that the hair maintains its bobbed shape.

Kate Hudson:

Start with a deep side part. Using randomly sized pieces, French-braid the larger section of the hair beginning at the hairline. Once the braid reaches the nape, combine it with the section of hair from the other side, anchoring into a low bun.


Kim Kardashian:

Pull blow-dried hair into a high ponytail with a paddle brush. (If you have bangs, smooth them down with a round brush while drying.) Flatiron the tail, then use a dab of serum to add shine.


Rachel McAdams:

Spritz a volumizer at the roots, then blow-dry the hair roughly. Tease the hair from forehead to crown and smooth the top layer of hair over. French-braid from the center middle of the head to the ends. Secure with an elastic band.


Blake Lively:

Let hair fall naturally for a messy, zigzag part. Wrap five- to six-inch sections around a large, clamp-free iron to create haphazard curls. Finish with a spritz of saltwater spray, then finger-comb.
