Updo Hairstyles

Hair styling is an amazing art. It takes a great deal of research and enthusiasm to select the right hairstyle for any occasion. Updo hairstyles are extremely exquisite and elegant and can be worn on both formal as well as casual occasions. They add a touch of class to your overall personality and are some f the most sought after styles worn at weddings, proms, dinners and cocktail events.

As per research, almost sixty percent of our looks are attributed to the way we dress our tresses. Our hairstyle plays an important role in making the first impression and speaks volumes about our personality. Unkempt and unhealthy tresses imply poor health and unhappiness, whereas gorgeously tamed tresses are an indicator of good health and beauty. Updo hairstyles make you look chic as well as neat. They also tend to stay out of the way enabling you to enjoy each moment to the fullest.

Selecting an Up-do design:

Every girl wants to look her best on a special occasion. Up-dos can be rather tricky to make, therefore it is recommended that you go to a professional hairstylist for getting your hair dressed in an appropriate manner. If you are planning to go to an event where you might have to dance, it is better to opt for a half-up-do design rather than a complete one. Never wash your hair on the same day of the event as shampoos and conditioners tend to make the hair slippery resulting in higher chances of your up-do falling apart.

While selecting an up-do, you must keep in mind the dress and accessories you will be wearing to the event. It is essential for the hairstyle to match your outfit, make-up and jewellery in order to enhance your overall personality.

Types of Up-do Hairstyles:

Elegant Updo: This hairdo is styled around a tight ponytail that is secured atop the crown in the shape of a fan. At the base the style is settled on the crown towards the back of the head and can be sported with sexy bangs as well. This up-do looks great on all face shapes, particularly thin facial structures. It is best designed with medium to long hair lengths and looks awesome on fine to thin hair textures.

Ringlets Up-do: This sleek up-do looks great on naturally curly or wavy tresses of medium thickness. The best length for this type of hairdo is shoulder length or slightly longer. Fine hair might not respond well to this type of hairstyle. Prior to creating this style, you must use a good volumizing shampoo and gel or spray to uplift the hair cuticle. This hairstyle looks great on almost all face cuts, particularly oval and heart shaped faces. It is best suited for medium to long length hairstyles.

Bun style up-do: This charming up-do is extremely sleek and elegant. It looks best on shoulder length or longer hair. It works best on fine or thin hair types and can be decorated with hair pieces and extensions. Straight hair is ideal for creating this style and if you have wavy or curly hair, you need to straighten it with the help of a flat iron. You can brush your hair backwards or make a mid or side parting in the front. Than gather your tresses in a ponytail and secure it tightly at the crown with bob pins. You can use great looking decorative pieces to enhance the bun. You can also add a light sprinkle of glitter to enhance the overall look of the bun.

Half-up-do: This elegant hairstyle is made by pinning the tresses while the rest of the hair is left falling down around the shoulders and back. It looks ravishing on all formal occasions and is one of the most charming hairstyles to be sported on a prom or wedding. This hairdo looks great on shoulder length or longer hair with medium thickness. Products required to design this style include styling get, rollers, blow drier and bobby pins.

Up-do hairstyles are fun to create and make you look like a fairytale princess. It is best to consult your hair stylist prior to attempting one on your own in order to avoid any disasters.
