I thought I would show you my 3 favourite up do hairstyles right now and how to do them. I would say they are all relatively easy but do require some practice. These are styles I always turn to when I am going clubbing, have a special occasion and normally so they are great styles to learn as you can use them alot.
The Sleek pony.
Ahh how amazing does a sleek pony look? So polished and feminine and a really refreshing way to wear your hair when you are stuck for ideas. I really like this look teamed some simple, small earrings such as the ones Kim is wearing in this photo as they look really glamorous. This style works best if you have long hair or extensions and is quite easy.
1. Brush your hair back making sure there are no bumps, tying it up high on the head.
2. Spray hairspray onto the hair on the head (not the ponytail) to keep it in place and give it that sleek look. Don’t use too much hairspray as you don’t want to make the hair look oily, focusing mostly on the flyaways.
3. Finally wrap a small section of hair around the base of the ponytail to hide the hair elastic.
If you have clip in hair extensions this can look really beautiful. Carli Bybel did a great video a while ago of how to do this and I have been wanting clip ins for so long so I can try this.
The sleek bun.
So I guess you can tell I really like sleek hairstyles? The sleek bun is great because It actually works on most hair lengths which go past the shoulders and is a really effective way to look lovely in no time. It is suitable for anything from work to the club. It also seems to work better with oily hair as the oil in the hair helps it look sleeker and stay. There are many variaions of it and some people like to wrap braids or bows around them but they look just as good on their own.
1. Brush back your hair, ensuring their are no bumps. This may take many brushes but does not take too long. Secure it on top of the head with an elastic.
2. Lightly brush back any flyaways, pinning them back with bobby pins if necessary and spraying hair on the head with hairspray.
3. You can use a bun maker (these are really cheap from most pharmacies) or even a sock with the end cut off it wrapped up into a coil (this hairstyle is often called the sock bunbecause of this). Start by rolling the end of your ponytail like so underneath the bun maker and keep rolling it through till you get to the base of the head.
4. Secure the bun with poppy pins by simply sticking them into the bun.
5. Lightly spray the entire hair with hair spray and you are all done.
The Loose Side Pony
This look is so feminine, pretty and reminds me of spring. I find this look hairstyle works best with freshly washed hair as any sort of oil will show up in the roots which is more noticeable when the part is showing. This look is particularly flattering if you have wavy or slightly curly hair as it really goes with that whole fresh, carefree, spring vibe. You can also add some loose curls with a curler or straightner if you do have straight hair before starting this hair style to get the same look but it still looks good with straight hair too.
1. Brush hair and secure it at the side of the head with an elastic. If you have a side fringe secure it on the side where it is as this will compliment the side pony. Leave a few small sections out at the front to give it that loose look.
2. Lightly secure these sections onto the head with a bobby pin, making sure they are not pulled backed too tightly or you can choose to curl them. Alternatively you can simply leave them as they are out.
3. Wrap a peice of hair that is already in the pony around the hair elastic so it is not visible and secure it with a bobby pin and the look is complete.
So yeah these are my 3 favourite up do’s right now! As you can see with all of them I like to wrap a bit of hair around thehair tie so it can not be seen as I think it looks neater and is an easy way look polished.
Thanks for reading. 🙂
