Updo’s are one of the best hairstyles for many reasons! They are easy to make, many of them take only a few minutes, and they are perfect for any occasion. No matter if it’s elegant, messy, or braided, the updo hairstyle can be managed for any hair length.
Below you will see the ten hairstyles we picked for you, so if you have short, medium, or long hair, you will find a hairstyle suitable for you. The hairstyles have the tutorial, either presented in the picture, or you will find out just by following the link below the picture. We fell in love with these updo’s, and we are sure you will as well!
1. Quick and Simple Updo
This hairstyle is suitable for medium or long-length hair. First, tease at the crown, smooth out your hair and divide it into three sections. Again, separate each section into three smaller ones and braid only of them. After that, braid together all three smaller sections and do this step with the other big sections. Lose the three braids a bit and roll them individually into three smaller buns. Secure the updo with pins, apply some hairspray in order so it lasts longer, and you’re all done!
2. Easy Braided Updo
This is one of the hairstyles that will take you literally a few minutes to make it. Beginner or advanced, you will find this hairstyle very easy, and the good part about it is that it’s perfect for lazy or busy days. Separate your hair into two sections and braid each of them. Fold the lower braid inside and secure it with a pin. Fold the upper braid around the lower one and secure this one as well with a braid. If you want to, you can leave out a small hair section, as previewed in the picture.
3. Gatsby Updo
If you have seen the Great Gatsby, you know how gorgeous and fabulous are all the actresses’ outfits, jewelry, and makeup. Even though the movie’s plot is based in the ’20s, having a hairstyle as Daisy did will surely be the perfect hairstyle for a party or other special occasion. We fell in love with the 20’s hairstyle in the picture. It’s elegant and very chic! It’s also time-consuming, so we don’t recommend making it last minute. You will need a hairband, curling iron, bobby pins, hair clips, elastic hairbands, and a hairspray.
4. Easy Short Hair Updo
Here’s something for the short hair. It’s really simple making this updo. Take a hair section from the crown, twist it around and tease it. Tuck the hairpiece and roll it as a bun, secure it with pins. Separate your hair into two other sections (or more if you have longer hair) and repeat the steps. When tucking and rolling into small buns, make them all three close together. Lose a bit if you want a messier look. You can leave out few hair sections at the front; it looks so chic!
5. Elegant Updo
This updo is very elegant, so it’s no wonder why many celebrities have it on the red carpet. The good thing is that you don’t have to visit your hairdresser to have it – you can make it at home and look as if you have just got back from the hairdressers. If you’re used to making your own hairstyles, it will take you approximately 3 minutes, and if not, it shouldn’t take you longer than 10 minutes or so. However, all the effort will be worth it! There is a video tutorial; just follow the link below the picture.
6. Low Rolled Updo
The Low Rolled Updo is suitable for medium to long hair length. It’s very simple – all you have to do is make a low ponytail and roll it on the inside by making topsies. To create the perfect roll, use your index finger to wrap a topsy. Do this until you have covered all the ponytail and secure the roll with bobby pins. It’s another hairstyle perfect when you really don’t have much time to spend on your hair.
7. Quick Rolled Braid Updo
Another rolled updo, but this one is in combination with a braid, plus it’s great that this one works on shorter hair as well. Take two hair sections from the front, and with each one, make a braid. Start making a Dutch braid, and as you go lower, take other hair sections and incorporate them in your braid. When you’re done braiding both hair sections, roll the remaining hair upwards and do that until the roll gets tight. Secure with pins, and you’re all done.
8. The Chic Updo
The Chic Updo is great for every hair length, including the short one. This hairstyle is perfect for work, for parties, for gatherings, every occasion you could think of. Grab the upper hair starting from the front, slightly pull at the head’s back and secure it with a pin. Roll the remaining hair upwards and put it on top, where you put the bobby pin before. Secure the roll from the inside with more pins. Pull some hair to cover the roll’s loop by attaching that small hairpiece to the upper one and again secure it with a pin. Voila!
9. Curly Updo
Here’s a hairstyle for those who have naturally curly hair or simply want a very curly hairstyle. To make this one, you need to use a curling iron. After you have the curls you have wished for, gather your hair back and make a messy updo by rolling the hair into a bun. Secure your hair by using bobby pins, and you can leave it out small hair sections at the front. This updo is ideal for elegant occasions, but who says we can’t have it every day of the week?
10. Messy Updo
And last, on our list, we have the classic, messy updo hairstyle. It’s chic and boho at the same time, so you can wear it anytime you want. It would be great to curl your hair a bit to achieve a messier look at the end. Make a ponytail at the center of your head, tease it slightly, and start rolling it. Secure with pins, but don’t forget to lose the updo – it’s all about a messy look, right? And to make it like that, if you want to, you can leave out two hair sections at the front.
