Stylish Updos

Whether luxe or casual, updos instantly add an effortless polish to your  look. It is a beautiful way of drawing attention to your facial features and neckline. This style will keep you cool throughout spring and summer while amplifying your appearance. Here are a few styles that you can experiment with and wear depending on where you are going and (let's face it) how much time you have...

I just love the Milkmaid updo, it is sweet, demure and simply irresistible. This style is quite versatile and adds a feminine touch to any outfit. It looks particularly nice with a flirty sundress and a coy smile.

Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren exude femininity while wearing the bouffant hairdo. It pairs perfectly with a sizzling date, cat-eye eyeliner and sky-high heels.

The neat bun channels the modern sophisticate, it is understated, easy and pays homage to the sleek and flawless ballerina bun. You can settle it at the top of your head, right in the middle, or at the nape of your neck. This is a great professional look that commands respect.

The french twist epitomizes timeless elegance. It adds refinement to any look and looks amazing with simple yet sophisticated dresses knee length or floor sweeping.

The side bun is romantic and delicate often worn by the modern bride and whimsical women everywhere. Add a flower or adorn it with a beautiful clip creating a stunning look. Be sure to have a deep hair part as it will soften your image.

The messy chignon radiates effortless chic and looks great with practically anything. The more wispy hairs the better attributing to its natural aura. It is sassy, stylish and the best part about it is that it is as easy as it looks.

Go ahead and sweep that hair out of your face and revel in every minute of it.


  1. I love all of these styles! Wish I were able to recreate at least one of them, but they just aren't in my skill set ;)

  2. I keep hearing how easy messy chignon's are, but I just can't get it!!

  3. I'm thinking of doing the milkmaid look for my wedding! Inspired by this Subaru commercial: I tried for months to talk myself into something more "refined" but I just couldn't stop thinking about this style. Swoon!
