Sculpted Twist

A sculpted twist adds dimension and intrigue to the classic bun by creating two knots instead of just one. To get this look, you will create one bun higher up on your head and one below it. To hold the buns in place, you’ll need to secure the knots with pins, hairspray, and spray wax.

Bun With Side-Swept Waves

Bun with side-swept waves.

This bun upstyle hair cut is a throwback to 90s-era glam. This hairstyle begins with teasing your hair to give it additional volume. Before you pull it back into a bun, part your hair off to one side. Then secure your hair into a bun, leaving some long wavy strands to frame your face. The end look is one that’s modern, flirty, and playful.

Big Bun

Big bun woman hairstyle.

Bigger is sometimes better when it comes to hair, and a big bun might be just the look you need to make a statement. For this look, you’ll start by teasing your hair to give it plenty of volumes. Then pull it back into a bun. To add a glamorous finish, wrap a sparkly headband around the base. For a truly classy look, try matching your hairband with other accessories, such as your earrings and necklace.

Braided Bun

Braided bun hairstyle for women.

For a smooth and sophisticated look, consider dressing up a bun by pulling it together with a tight braid at the nape of the neck. This hairstyle’s elegance comes from the plaited braid, which can be woven around the bun to hold it in place. You can use styling products to control frizz and give your hairstyle a smooth, chic, and glamorous look.

Bouffant Ponytail

Bouffant ponytail women hairstyle.

A ponytail might seem like a hairstyle that’s suitable for wearing only when you’re in high school or when you’re working out. But there are many different ways to wear a ponytail, and with the right approach, this look is one of the most unique and beautiful types of upstyle hair cuts for women. To get the look, use a curling iron first to tease hair into loose waves and curls. Then gather your hair together into a high, messy ponytail. This look gives your hair a slightly messy, unkempt, and sexy look while still keeping hair off your neck.

Half-Bun (Hun)

Half-bun hairstyle for women.

The half-bun or “hun” finds a happy medium between wearing your hair up and keeping it down. To make the most of this style, keep the bun high and wear it towards the back of your head. This style is a fine way to keep hair off your face while still looking a bit more polished than wearing your hair loose and down.

Low Chignon

Low chignon women hairstyle.

You can do many different things with a chignon updo, including wearing it high or low. A low chignon sits just at the base of your neck. It is really little more than a knot, but it can look very stylish and put-together, especially when coupled with dazzling jewelry like a necklace and shimmering earrings. The advantage of a low chignon is that it takes only minutes to achieve, and it works with hair of a shorter, medium, or longer length. Consider adding some anti-frizz cream and spray to hold it in place.

Double Braid Updo

Double braid updo hairstyle.

If there’s one updo that gets an award for being a timeless classic, it’s one that includes braids. A double braid updo is a great option for making your hair look presentable, sophisticated, and elegant without putting too much trouble into its appearance. If you need a classic updo look for a more formal occasion, a hairdo with double braids is a fine choice. For a complete look, consider matching your lipstick color to your hair accessories. For its ease and glamour, this look is especially popular for weddings.

Updo in a Ribbon

Updo in a ribbon hairstyle for women.

To add the tiniest bit of glamour to your updo, consider tying your hair back with a striking accessory. A piece of thick, shiny ribbon makes your hair look more feminine and attractive in just seconds. You can also use a nice headband, such as one that’s a unique color or one that’s accented with faux jewels.

Chignon with Bangs

Chignon with bangs women hairstyle.

A chignon, which is a bun traditionally worn at the nape of the neck, is one of the most classic and popular types of hairstyles that you can wear for an updo. It’s also one of the most versatile. If you have bangs, wearing a chignon gives your hair a youthful, playful, and dimensional look. This strikes a fine balance between the formality of an updo hairstyle and the playful, flirty nature of bangs.

Soft Bun

Soft-bun women hairstyle.

A soft bun is an excellent choice if you have fine, long hair. Keeping your hair loose around the front can give it a bit of volume, which in turn makes it look fuller without you having to put in much effort. This is also a gentler method than pulling your hair back too tightly, which can actually cause hair loss if you consistently wear your hair in a pulled-back style. An added tip for this hairstyle, and if you have long hair in general, is to take sufficient amounts of biotin, which is important for keeping hair healthy and lively.

Simple Twist

Simple twist hairstyle.

A simple twist is an elegant and versatile solution for long hair and especially hair that is dried out and damaged. With a simple twist, you can simply start with a low, loose French braid that is then pinned up into the rest of your hair. This hairstyle is not as hard on your locks as a traditional tight braid, but it still gives your hair the elegance and sophistication of a braided look.

Crown Braids

Crown braids women hairstyle.

Many of the most glamorous updo hairstyles involve braids. For a modern take on a hairstyle that dates back many years, try crown braids the next time you are attending an outing. Crown braids wrap around the crown of your head. They can be worn alone for a simple but polished look, or they can be accented with hair accessories for a truly beautiful and glamorous look. This style is a Swiss-inspired hairdo that is making a resurgence in Hollywood today.

Natural redheads, who are envied for their impressive hair color, usually flaunt their hair by wearing it down. But if you want to go for an updo, you can let loose just one long lock at the side as the lovely Emma Stone has done here. This lets the color shine while keeping the strands out of your view at the same time.

Traditional Options

In the world of hairstyling, pulling your hair up is considered an updo. The most classic options acknowledged in the world of updos are:

  • Buns: Whether casual or highly styled, a bun pulls your hair away from your face and wrapped in a coil on itself. In some cases, secure the style with pins or barrettes.
  • Chignons: Look elegant and classic with a beautiful chignon that pins your hair at the nape of your neck or the back of your head. The chignon has limitless variations.
  • French Twist:  Worn tight or loose, you gather the hair and turn it upwards until it all gathers in your head.
  • Beehive: This is when your hairstyle is piled up in a cone shape that looks slightly like a beehive. Most popular in the 1960s, stylists incorporate this look in a modern way.

Advantages of Choosing an Upstyle

Pull your hair up, style it to look beautiful, and feel confident with an upstyle for the day. Women love updos because the look isn’t permanent and is suitable for just one occasion. If you don’t like it, then change it!

Other advantages of choosing an updo for yourself include:

  • Learn to create a look for yourself without a visit to the salon
  • Shape the style to flatter the form of the face and draw attention to your eyes
  • Incorporate hair accessories into your look
  • Feel more feminine and beautiful
  • No need to change your haircut or style
  • Keep your hair out of your face in photos
  • Suit every hair texture
  • Look good no matter your age

Options for Shorter Hair

Short hair does not eliminate the opportunity for you to get an updo. With careful styling and the addition of clip-on extensions, your look for the evening looks like it is your hair. Frame the face, use extensions, and incorporate barrettes to upgrade your style.

The Full-Updo For a Special Occasion

When you are getting ready for an event, treat yourself with a full updo. The other option is the half up/half down style that lets some hair flow free while other strands stay up. A stylist uses your natural hair texture to your advantage for your look.

If you don’t know where to start, check out some styles online and be sure to consider how your hair frames your face and what it looks like in the back. In fact, updos incorporate other styles like tousled hair, braids, texture, ponytails, and sleek looks.
