Night out hairstyles: 5 party updos for frizzy hair

/ 07.24.2015

Preventing frizzy hair or taming it after the fact can be time consuming and often futile, which can be really frustrating when you have zero time to get ready for a night out! So, instead of doing battle with your hair, we suggest embracing the extra texture and volume (well, fuzz) to create one of the super chic updos below. It's way easier, trust us...

1. Chic beehive


When hair gives you frizz, make a bouffant! A beehive with a cute headband looks polished and the vintage silhouette keeps it classic.

Styling tip

Apply a volumizing spray like Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray to roots and lengths of your hair, then backcomb it for uniform height that lasts all night.

2. Voluminous updo

If your hair tends to double in size at the mere mention of humidity, try gathering it up into an airy, voluminous updo. You can pin it into a bun or French twist at the back, or secure individual pieces on top of each other for a messy chignon.

Styling tip

Spritz your bobby pins with dry shampoo to give them extra grip.

3. Voluminous wavy pony

Use a 1" curling iron to create some loose waves before securing your hair into a low ponytail. The wavy texture will add movement and make the overall finish look totally deliberate.

Styling tip

Hide the hair elastic with a piece of hair from the pony. Wrap it around the base, then secure it underneath with a bobby pin.

4. Glam blowback

Use frizzy hair to create a dramatic, glamorous blowback hairstyle, no blow dryer required! All you need to do is lift the hair, backcomb it from behind, sweep it back and fix with lashings of hairspray.

Styling tip

Be really generous with the hairspray. A brushable product like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray will not only give your hair lasting hold, it'll also prevent new frizz from ruining your look!

5. Messy updo

For medium-length and shorter haircuts, a messy updo is the perfect party look when frizz is an issue. With the lengths of the hair piled into a textured chignon on top, the texture is controlled but not squashed.

Styling tip

Curl the hair before pinning it up to add shape and make it easier to hold in one place, just don't forget to apply a heat protectant like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray first!
