When it comes to hair styling, there’s nothing that switches up your overall look more swiftly than an updo. A messy top knot can add an element of nonchalance, an intricate chignon can create an air of elegance and a beachy braid can create instant boho vibes.
It’s official, the updo is the sexiest hairstyle for summer
However, if you’re not skilled in the styling department, it can be tricky to master most hairstyles, especially when they involve complex techniques, specialist equipment, or multiple heat tools to complete.
Regardless of how easy the tutorial looks on screen, getting our heads around it at home is another trick entirely and most of us end up giving up after a few failed attempts and resorting to our go-to bedhead look.
Luckily, there are multiple updos that require zero styling prowess and can be mastered in a matter of seconds (seriously, we’re not exaggerating). These looks are foolproof – they cannot go wrong, either because they is no room for error in the case of a super slick ballerina bun, or else any missteps will only enhance the final result.
