Maybe you have a last minute occasion or you just like saving the cost of expensive trips to the salon. Whatever the reason, creating easy formal hairstyles yourself can be done with a little knowledge and practice.
The half updo is incredibly popular and one of the simplest of formal hairstyles. Begin by using a volumizing product, such as mousse, on damp hair. Blow dry your hair with a round brush until it is slightly damp. Now, take a two inch by one inch section of hair, spritz with hairspray and roll them up in large Velcro rollers. Let your hair air dry or use the blow dryer to speed up the process until your hair has completely dried. Remove the rollers and apply hair wax to your fingers. Use your finger to finger comb the curls and separate them. Pin back the top and sides loosely with a decorative hair clip. This method is a favorite for easy formal hairstyles that are casual, yet elegant.
Another pick for easy formal hairstyles is a low-lying braided bun. Blow dry your hair straight and pull your hair back into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic band. Braid the pony tail and secure the end with another elastic band. Wrap the braid around the base of the braid like a coil, pinning with bobby pins as you go. Tuck the end of the braid under the bun and secure with two or three pins to ensure it doesn't slip out. This type of celebrity formal hairstyle is a twist on the traditional chignon and is easier to do since the braid cooperates better than loose hair when pinning.
