So many hairstyles, so little time

Updo hairstyles are great for all kinds of reasons, not least because there are so many different looks to choose from! From braids to airy chignons, you need never be stuck for updo ideas.

If you need something practical, a messy topknot or bun will keep your hair up and under control, as will a simple braided style. For dressier occasions, try a messy chignon or sleek knot instead.

Styling tips

Add volume

Spray your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, then tease as necessary to add volume before putting your hair up.

Eliminate frizz

For a smooth finish, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream to damp hair before blow-drying. The cream smooths and protects your strands as they dry, leaving you with a polished, frizz-free look.

Stay sleek

To keep an updo smooth and sleek all day long, mist your finished style with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. It will instantly add shine and eliminate flyaways for a chic, glossy look.
