The weather this spring was unseasonably cool and abnormally dry. Now that the heat and humidity sets in for the long summer swelter, I find my hair is as lifeless and flat as Kristen Stewart’s acting ability. It’s during times like these that I surrender and go for the updo hairstyle.
I also found this list of 25 easy updos, and there are some pretty styles on the list. I also like this crown twist tutorial, and this slightly more complicated twisted bun tutorial. And for those of you with short hair, try this pretty style or this French twist-like style.
For updos, no matter which style you choose, you’ll need the same basic tools. I recommend clear elastics, strong bobby pins (buy the pins made for salons, not the cheap ones from the drugstore), a teasing comb or teasing brush and a can of really good hairspray. I love Big Sexy Firm Volumizing hairspray or L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray.
Good luck out there, it’s like a sauna.
