Any woman with long or medium hair knows that updos are the best choice for those hot summer days. Sometimes you just don't have time to create complicated hairstyles, which is why we offer you a few styling ideas in this post that can be done in just 5 minutes and look pretty and elegant at the same time. We hope you enjoy our easy updo suggestions!
When it comes to easy updos, the classic bun may be the first thing that comes to mind. The bun hairstyles are particularly diverse, and there are many different ways to style your hair so that the hairstyle looks impressive and not boring. A classic bun is actually the strict ballerina bun, placed in the middle of the head. You can either twist your hair into a bun and secure it with bobby pins, or you can use a bun pillow to give the hairstyle a nice, regular shape. The bun pillow will also make your hairstyle more voluminous - simply ideal for thin hair! The ballerina bun could look much more interesting if you separate three strands from the top hair in advance and braid them into a thin braid. You should then wrap this braid around the finished bun, and secure the end with a bobby pin. If you're doing your hairstyle for an official occasion, you could spray it with some shine spray - it will not only hold better but also look a lot more elegant!
Another elegant updo that you should definitely try is the French bun. First, tie a regular ponytail high up on the head. Braid it into a braid and wrap it around the hair tie so that it is no longer visible. Finally fix the hairstyle with bobby pins and spray. A popular updo for leisure time is the so-called messy bun. To get the modern, disheveled look, you should first tease your hair a little with the hairbrush - this will also give it extra volume. Then tie a ponytail at the top of your head and wrap it around the hair elastic. Let a few strands hang out of the bun, and your gorgeous casual hairstyle is already done! Another variant is the knotted bun,in which the ponytail tied high at the head is divided into two equal-sized strands. A knot is made out of this and fixed with a couple of hairpins. Then you should lead the strands up and make another knot - the number of knots actually depends on the length of the hair. Finally, the hairstyle is fixed with hairspray and clips.
The pinned up braided hairstyles look particularly elegant and feminine and are actually much easier to do than it looks at first glance. Here we show you a beautiful updo with a French braid that you can create yourself with a little practice for less than 5 minutes! With French braids, you should first remove three strands of equal size from the top hair. Start braiding by placing the right strand over the middle one, and after that - the left one over the middle one. Then pick up some hair from the right side and add it to the right strand. Repeat the same process on the left side. In this way, braid the braid all the way and secure it with a small hair elastic. Finally, wrap the finished French braid into a loose bun and secure it with bobby pins.
With a headband, you can put your hair up very quickly and easily. You should simply put the headband on your head and wrap your hair around it! To make the hairstyle look even more elegant, you could braid a side braid - simple instructions in pictures can be found above!
