Arguably, there’s nothing that switches up your overall look more swiftly than updo hairstyles. 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. For our curly girls, there is nothing like throwing your hair up in a messy bun with a curly fringe, and who can resist those puffy buns on afro hair?
There is a reason why slick buns have been to go-to off-duty style for some of our favourite supermodels and news alert, some of them are as effortless as they look. Hair up means that everything feels a little more in control and out of the way, plus driving full attention to the area that rightfully deserves it, your face.
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. Creative ambassador at Josh Wood Colour Pete Berkle who works with Millie Bobby Brown says: “bulldog clips and crocodile clips are easy because you can use them to gather the hair at the front and secure it with hairspray which can give you a slick look instantly. Messy buns were everywhere, but instead of using heat tools, to pull hair out use hairsprays, serums, silk scrunchies and invisibobbles. It’s all about enhancing natural texture with the right products and finding an easy way to amp it up.”
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.
