Updos are generally thought to be worn only for special occasions. Contrary to popular belief, there are many updo hair styles in which a woman can wear every day to look classy. These styles keep the hair off of the face, so they are great for those hot summer months, or when you are going out to dinner. Sometimes women are wearing an updo without actually recognizing they are truly wearing one.
Lionesse Flat Iron would like to show you some of the easy, more casual ways to wear an updo or every day.
A bun is a beautiful, great way to wear an updo and it virtually requires no time at all to do. There are bun kits in which you can buy in the store, or you could do one yourself almost effortlessly. By wrapping your hair into a circle on top of your head around itself and securing with bobby pins or a hair elastic that matches your hair color, you can have a cute bun that’s simple and goes with any outfit. The bun kits are nice because they come with bobby pins, and a shaper for your hair to get a big, full, perfect bun effect. There are also messy buns, in which you gather your hair as if you are going to make a ponytail, and then sort of wrap a scrunchie or hair elastic around the hair and secure it before it actually becomes a ponytail. The nicest of them all is the bun with the use of the hair shaper to get the most perfect looking bun. You can also research how to use a sock to create a bun. It’s fun and easy to do.
The Braided Bun
This is a super easy twist on a typical bun. Simply gather your hair into a high ponytail, and secure with hair elastic. Braid the hair that is hanging down, and then wrap around your hair elastic and secure with bobby pins. Simple, easy, and quick, this style goes with anything!
A sleek, slicked back ponytail is a great way to wear your hair in a casual everyday updo. Simply gather the hair as you would with a regular ponytail, and gather into hair elastic. Spray with some shine spray, and use a texturizing pomade or gel to smooth the top in case of flyaways. Voila!
Ponytail with Volume
Just like the sleek ponytail, a pony with volume is super cute for daily wear. Simply tease the hair at the crown of your head at the roots and secure into a ponytail. Spray with hairspray and you have a cute look that will last all day.
French twists are making a comeback with a vengeance. We love the look because it’s different than the usual bun or pony, and it gives a sleek look while appearing stylish. It goes great with jeans or a cute skirt. Simply gather your hair as though you are making a ponytail and then twist the hair all the way to the ends, fold the hair over, and tuck the ends in underneath the fold. Secure with bobby pins. Spray with a good hairspray, and you are ready to roll!
Updos don’t have to be saved for weddings and special events. As you can see, most of these hairstyles are styles women wear every day. Putting a new spin on an old favorite is a great way to have some different styles to wear every day.
