updo

Thinking something looks dated in a picture may be easy to identify, but noticing little things in the mirror may be a bit more difficult. Not paying attention to styling may cause you to inadvertently be wearing something that is a little past its time. Click the notes for more. –– Kelly Rowe

Nothing says romance like a big pile of voluminous hair pinned loosely atop the head. Pair it with a shoulder-baring top, lightly smudged eyes and nude glossy lips for the ultimate come-hither look. This style should look effortless, but attaining lots of volume while keeping texture loose can be a challenge. Learn how to do it in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

When we talk about updos we’re usually talking about the back. We define upswept styles by what happens behind the head, but the area around your face can make or break even the most masterfully executed shape. Give your favorite style a sophisticated finish by adding a bit of height, a wispy faux-fringe and romantic texture. Get simple steps for creating the perfect front to any updo in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
