Updos tend to bring to mind events such as prom, parties, or weddings, but they need not be limited to special occasions. Updos are very versatile and can also be worn every day. Most updos can be customized to suit the occasion whether it is casual, professional, or formal. Let’s talk about some classic updos that will work for you no matter the occasion.
The French Twist is a classic that is perfect for any occasion. A few accessories can take it from fun to formal in an instant. Styled smooth and sleek, it’s quite elegant for more formal occasions. Loose with curls allowed to cascade from the top, it’s soft and romantic.
Braids are not just a school girl style. They can be fashioned into any number of fabulous updos. Mermaid braids lend a casual elegance to formal wear. A French braid is just as at home on the beach as it is in the office. And a milkmaid crown is perfect for date night or wedding day.
Chignon is a French word that means “bun”. And yes, it is a type of bun, but much more interesting. Change it up to suit the occasion by wearing it tight and sleek for a formal or professional event, or loose with softly curled tendrils cascading from the sides for a more casual affair.
You can add a vintage feel to your style with a few retro touches. Pin curls or victory rolls can be added on to most any updo to give it a vintage touch. It’s a very classy look to compliment any outfit.
