If you're super busy right now, you may not have made it to a hair salon in a while. That's totally fine, but you might have some split ends you're not exactly proud of. The good news is that there are plenty of updos out there which require ends to remain tucked out of sight, allowing you to showcase the best, healthiest-looking parts of your hair!

(Just to clarify, you should always address split ends to help keep your hair looking healthy. It's just useful to have a few hairstyle ideas to keep you going until you meet with your stylist.)

Scroll through the gallery above and get inspired!


Due to a slight element of chaos, a mussed, unkempt updo is perfect for hiding split ends. This kind of hairstyle allows you to twist and pin the ends out of sight and, thanks to the ultra-textured finish, detracts attention from any you may miss!

Styles to try: Volumized updos that have been teased, messy buns and ponies, and loose braided crowns. Make sure you complete your style with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.


Braided updos weave all the hair together to create the hairstyle, masking split ends perfectly. With a braided 'do, you're guaranteed to end up with a chic, romantic hairstyle that serves a practical purpose, too!

Styles to try: Crowns and buns are great braided hairstyles to try. Blow-dry first with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse for added lift and body.

Rolls + twists

Sleek, classic updos are also perfect for hiding split ends. Again, ends are rolled over and under before being pinned firmly out of sight. These kinds of hairstyles are perfect for a formal occasion or a day at work, too!

Styles to try: A French twist or rolled headband updo are two super easy and very chic looks to try. Both look great with ultra-straight or curly hair and they're flattering on just about everyone. As with unkempt styles, fix with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to finish.

Which of these super practical styles will you be trying first?
