Looking for stylish and romantic updo hairstyles that you can create yourself? The easiest ones to imitate are those with soft waves and curls. These updo hairstyles are much less structured and don't require the perfection sleek hairstyles demand.
To create your own wavy celebrity updo hairstyles on long hair, begin with slightly damp hair that has had a mousse or styling lotion applied to it. Hair that has been washed the day before and misted with water first works best, but freshly washed hair with a little extra styling product in it will work in a pinch. Set your hair in medium-sized Velcro rollers, making sure not to wrap too much hair on each roller as the hair will take longer to dry and the curls will be weak. Let your hair air dry in the rollers.
Once your hair is completely dry, carefully remove the rollers and let your hair hang in the loose curls. The trick to great looking celebrity updo hairstyles is having a variety of curls in the updo. Achieve this by dividing some of your large curls into two and creating smaller curls with a medium-sized curling iron. Make the smaller curls random and spread throughout the hair.
To finish off this soft updo, part your hair in the middle and gently pull the curls back and pin them in a very unstructured, loose bun at the back of your head. Don't pull the curls tight, instead sweep them back, letting some fall around your face for that soft look so popular in celebrity updo hairstyles. Let the ends of the pieces you pin into the bun remain out to create short curls that hang from the bun. Finish off with a light hold hairspray or shine spray. These types of updo hairstyles are perfect for prom, homecoming or just about any formal event.
