Whether you are going out for a night on the town, getting married, attending a formal celebration, going to work, or even heading to the beach, your hair will look amazing with an updo. Updos can be worn with long hair or short hair. Timeless and elegant, updos never go out of style.

For the beach or office, casual updos are the perfect look for summer. When the weather is warm, a casual updo will keep the hair off your neck to showcase your beautiful neckline. Casual updos basically consist of a twist, a little tuck, and a bobby pin or two. You can then complete the look with dazzling earrings.

One of the hottest updo styles is the "half up/half down," which looks great on any hair type and any shape face. To achieve this look, pull half of your hair back and then up toward the top of your head. Then secure the hair with bobby pins for a loose look, or a barrette for a taut yet sleek style. Sweep your bangs or layers to the side, or part them straight down the middle to frame your face. This style takes less than three minutes to create.

A high ponytail is another quick and easy yet elegant updo. This sexier version of the classic style is so versatile you can wear it absolutely anywhere. Pull your hair straight back into a high ponytail, then secure it with an elastic band and pull the hair evenly at the crown, just above the band. This will create the height which will give the old ponytail style a new trendier look. The whole process takes less than two minutes.

Another option is the messy updo, which is an incredibly romantic look. This style is perfect if you have naturally curly or wavy hair. To create this look, make an off-center ponytail at the nape of your neck, wrap the loose hair into a messy bun, and secure with bobby pins. Once the bun is secured, pull out a few strands to frame your face to achieve an untamed look. You can create this trendy style in about five minutes.

Another option, the ballerina bun, is one of the quickest and easiest updo hairstyles you will find. To get a ballerina bun, gather all of your hair gently at the base of your skull. Use an elastic band to hold your hair in this position, which will actually form a low ponytail. Coil your hair in a circular motion around the ponytail holder and secure it with bobby pins. If your hair is very long or thick, you may find it easier to divide your hair into pieces as you create the coil part of the ballerina bun. This is another look that takes less than five minutes to achieve.

No matter which style of updo you choose, make sure you have the basic accessories needed to achieve the look. You will need a few essentials such as bobby pins, hairpins, hair bands, and hair gel or hairspray. Hair gel and hairspray in particular helps to add body and provide staying power, thus facilitating an easy updo hairstyle that will hold its shape all day long.
