When it comes to updos, the celebrities have the best examples of how to style your hair.
Some of the styles can easily be created on your own, with just a little bit of practice. If you aren't comfortable with doing your own hair, you can always take a copy of the updo hairstyle you like to your stylist. A picture really is worth a thousand words to your stylist. An actual picture will tell your stylist exactly how you want your hair done.
Check out some of these fabulous updos below and steal one of them for your next formal occasion style.
Alessandra is wearing a partial updo hairstyle that features wispy bangs in front and height in the crown area. Create this style on your own by first applying a styling cream to damp hair. Then blow dry the hair using a large round brush. Direct all layers down and under. Add soft waves all over using a medium to large barrel curling iron. Finish off the style with a blast of shine serum to seal in the shine. You may also want to add hairspray or a finishing product to keep the hair in place.
Beyonce is wearing a partial updo hairstyle that features height in the crown area, no part and silky smooth ends.
To create height like Beyonce, you can take small sections of hair and gently back comb them, smoothing over the top with your fingers.
Another option is to place a small form in under the hair and pull all the hair up and around the form, pinning in place.
This style also has some height in the crown area.
