The length of your hair needs to be taken into consideration, because if you have shoulder length hair you will need more styling aids than if you have waist length tresses. Simple updo hairstyles such as the ponytail updo start with just a few items: hair clip, bobby pins, ribbons or floral accessories for added drama. Formal hairstyles really require less adornments than if you were going to a party or celebrity event.
Updo Hairstyles for weddings can be achieved easily by parting the hair down the middle and then taking each section and twisting it away from your face until you reach the back of your neck, what this will allow is for your hair to have a curled up look around the edges. On each side you will use the bobbie pins to hold the hair in place. If you have any loose ends you can put them in a hair clip and tuck the tips down into the back of your head, what you will end up with is a crown of twists that lifts into a partial bun.
Updo Hairstyles for long hair is easier to style due to the hair being all in one piece, if you have many layers you will need to arrange the hair in a loose braid or two strand twist first, but it is not necessary for longer hair, simply part the hair in 4 separate sections from the top and take the two front pieces and twist the into circular motions into a cone shape then take the two sections in the back and lift them up over the front, it is a good idea to have some hair combs to secure the sides and then use hair clips for the ends to keep them from coming apart.
