Ideas On Fancy Hair Updos
  • Just because you have short hair, it doesn’t mean you can’t get to sport a fancy hairstyle. It’s really more about your desire and less about what you possess. You can begin the process of creating a fancy updo first by washing your hair with a shampoo and then using a conditioner to make your hair soft and tangle free. With a towel, you can then dry your hair. Follow up by gently brushing your hair. You will then have to curl your hair into one inch sections, for which you will have to use the narrow barrel attachment of your curling iron. Once your hair is all curled up, part it to the side and pin down the excess hair with bobby pins. Finish off the whole process by misting your hair with hair spray. The hair spray will help the curls stay in place.
  • To put together a fancy hairstyle with medium length hair, you can begin by first washing your hair with a shampoo and a moisturizing conditioner. Once done with the washing, instead of towel drying your hair use a blow dryer to rid your hair of the wetness. Proceed to get out your curling iron and curl your hair until you are left with wavy locks. This is what you want, not curls, wavy locks! With this done, divide your hair into two sections from ear to ear and then go ahead and secure the top section with a clip. Pin the rolled up section of hair with bobby pins. This should be done at the nape of the neck. Once done with this, you will have to repeat the same modus operandi with the other section of your hair. Comb the top section of hair to one side and pin it close to the ear with bobby pins. Your fancy updo is ready. Spray on some hairspray to complete the look.
  • If you are blessed with long hair, go ahead to try out the wrap hairstyle. Begin by washing your hair with a shampoo and then a conditioner. Blow dry your hair with the assistance of a blow dryer and a paddle brush. With this done, go ahead and apply a styling cream or hair mousse on your hair and wait for it to dry completely. Now, with a comb, part your hair to the side at the front and pick up one inch strands of hair. These strands of hair should be the ones closest to your hairline. Go ahead and tie a ribbon across the base of the strands of hair picked up. You can use a bobby pin to secure the ribbons to the strands of hair. With a curling iron, curl the rest of your hair into one inch sections. Once done with the curling, you can pin down the curls at the crown of your head with bobby pins. Make it a point to also pin the ribbon wrapped section of your hair to your crown.
For best results, with the above mentioned fancy updos, it is advisable to try out the same with care and caution. This is important because hair needs care and you don’t really want it to be too rough when dealing with it.
