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.

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.
