The Oscars and the Golden Globes are just two high class events where celebrities have the opportunity to show off their lovely dresses, and their superb updos. As a matter of fact, updos seem to be the norm this year for formal events, extending also to day to day looks.
If you want to don a celebrity updo, try the following summer hairstyles!
Celebrity Summer Updos: Side-Swept Bun
A side-swept bun is a nonconformist, yet elegant updo for a formal event. Amy Poehler chose this hairstyle at the 2013 Golden Globes, and she didn't go wrong!
If you want to copy her updo, start by washing your hair and blow drying it using a round brush. Then use a flat iron to provide a sleek touch to your already straight locks.
Create a deep side part, and then twist your hair into an imperfect bun. Secure it with as many bobby pins as you need.
For the best results, apply hair mousse such as Kerastase Resistance Volumactive Mousse on the damp hair, before blow drying it, and finish this celebrity updo with a hairspray like L'Oreal's Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Unscented Hairspray
Summer 2013 Celebrity Hairstyles: Twist Updo
"Avatar" actress Zoe Saldana is a true fashion and hairstyling trendsetter! She loves donning updos not only at formal events, but also during her free time. An easy to pull off summer hairstyle is a braided updo, a look Zoe Saldana doesn't shy away from.
If you want to copy this celebrity updo, start by applying a frizz control product such as Dove Intense Frizz Control Anti-Frizz Cream on your damp hair. Blow dry it, then roll up hair strands in a crown in the front part of the head, using moves that remind you of dough kneading. Secure your twist updo with bobby pins.
Add hairspray to keep this summer hairstyle into place. Opt for a strong hold product such as Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Harder Firm Volumizing Hairspray.
Celebrity Updos 2013: Top Bun
Cool and trendy, the top bun is one of the easiest celebrity summer updos to recreate! All you have to do is to blow dry your long locks so that your hair is straight, then to comb it thoroughly, and then to secure it into a ponytail.
Once you've covered this step, take a hair sock, and roll it into itself until you form a full circle. Cover the "circle" with your ponytail and secure your top bun with bobby pins.
Make sure your top bun stays into place by applying a hefty amount of strong hold hairspray such as Pantene Pro-V Extra Strong Hold Hairspray.
