Updos and hair ups can be the answer to all types of hair ‘mares. Whether you just fancy an easy hairstyle change, a hair updo or hair up can be the perfect solution for work, parties or even just chilling out at cafes for a casual dinner it’s not just about ball season.
Updos or hair ups for short hair always seem like the most challenging; definitely more so than updos and hair ups for shoulder length and medium hair, even though it’s only slightly longer. Proving that a bob hairstyle is anything but limiting when it comes to updos and hair ups you can use sweeping and curling the hair back into a variety of cool red hot hair styles especially if take inspiration from red carpet events. There are loads short hair updos and hair ups for all of you who have gone for the most talked about cut of the year. The Lob, which is a long bob usually with texture and beach style waves, this looks great with a long blunt cut fringe sitting on the eyebrow line.
For simple but effective updo and hair up ideas, take notes from stars on the red carpet Google people like Emma Watson, Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger, who have been wearing high-impact updos and hair ups that your stylist can easily recreate. Don’t worry if the idea of styling your own hair, let alone into a fancy updo or hair up, gets you in a flap. That’s where an expert stylist comes in, research the look you want your stylist to create take pictures to your appointment. Look at the overall picture of how it will all come together with things such as your dress style, neckline length, and your makeup, it’s not a good look having a beautiful feminine updo or hair up then adding heavy Gothic makeup create a look that flows from top to toe. Be organised check your diary for event dates book in with your stylist for a consultation prior to the day of the event, this way you know that you can achieve your desired look with your hair.
