Updos are a go-to style for many women. Not only do they do a great job of tucking and protecting ends — which in turn helps with length retention — they work on multiple hair lengths, and add an instant element of class. If you’re tired of doing a basic updo style, try these tips to make things more interesting.
Rolls create volume and add interest. Click here for a tutorial for this style.
Add Volume In the Front
Volume in the front is flattering on almost any face shape. Just make sure you keep the rest of the style smooth and low. Read a tutorial for this style here.
Cornrows add instant flair. Just make sure they’re neat and even. See more photos of this look here.
Pull it to the Center
If you have the length, try pulling all your hair to the center and creating a roll that goes down the entire length of your scalp. See more looks from Noddy here.
Incorporate Big Braids
Incorporate large braids into your updo. Try french braiding the back or creating three or four large braids in the front. Watch a tutorial for this style here.
Play Up Your Lips
By pulling hair off the face updos emphasize eyes, lips and bone structure. Play it up with a bold lipstick color. See more looks from Neytiri here.
