2017 Updo Hairstyles – Top 10 To Try:
1. Milkmaid Braid:
Though we’ve seen many variations of the funky milkmaid braid in the past, we’ve gotta say this – Iggy Azalea’s close-to-the-forehead version has us giddy with possibility. Plumping for something entirely different, Iggy Azalea matched her classic blue Armani Prive gown with a tall and oh-so-pretty crown-style braid. To recreate her look, part the hair into two even sections. Braid both sides of the hair, starting from the nape of the head. Apply a shine serum and secure each braid with a hair elastic. Pull each segment of the braid beginning at the bottom to loosen and puff the braids. Next overlap the two braids to join them and use bobby pins to keep in place. To finish, spritz strong hairspray.
2. Mohawk-y Updo:
Our favourite Julianne Hough looks confident and carefree with her platinum blonde locks styled in a quirky updo. To create your own Mohawk-y updo, which takes only minutes to execute, first split the side areas into two sections, then twist each toward the back and fasten into a ponytail. Twist the front section to the left and pin it in place to give the mohawk dimension. Use lots of light-touch hairspray as it creates subtle volume and gives your hair a great texture. End result? The perfect edgy-yet-chic hairdo.
3. Pompadour Quiff:
Veering a bit into masculine territory, singer Rihanna still looks chic with her two-tone hair styled in a quirky pompadour up’do. The singer with her glamorous swirled quiff proves that short hair doesn’t have to mean boring. To get the wet look, start by backcombing from the back to the front and pumping the top section full of volume. The trick is to do it from behind so that you still have a smooth finish at the front. Next, create a swirl by twisting your hair, pinning it discreetly, and set your short up’do with some extra strength hairspray.

4. Braided Updo With Bangs:
Gorgeous from every angle, Taylor Swift’s chic alternative to the basic updo is so worth the effort. The songstress looks sophisticated with her thick golden locks done up in a low bun. She sports super-long blunt bangs that skim her eyes, with rounded corners that soften her facial features. This up’do is perfect for thin, straight hair, and is super-easy to try at home. Simply prep your hair with your favourite hairspray all over to keep the braids in place, and blow-dry it out with a rounded brush. Separate your bangs from the rest of your hair, tie your locks up in a sleek low bun, and Voilà, you’re good to go!
5. Messy Updo:
Actress and fashionista Blake Lively looks angelic with her romantic messy up’do. With this messy-yet-sexy look, she is right on trend with her chunky bun, and her wispy flyaway hairs that frame her face beautifully. Messy up’dos are very popular this year, and with so many looks to choose from, there’s no excuse for missing Serena Van Der Woodsen’s ‘do out! Recreate Blake’s gorgeous up’do by parting your hair to one side, tying it in a messy bun, and securing a large section with a hair clip.

6. High Braided Ponytail:
Here comes one of the most adorable updo hairstyles for prom 2017. Nicole Richie looks enchanting with her thick, glamorous high braided ponytail. The key to making it work is to first gather all your hair together. For a sleek and polished braid, apply smooth anti-frizz serum over your hair before braiding it, and secure the end with a section of your own hair. Finish off this sultry look with smoky eye-makeup and nude lips. Ta-da!
7. Voluminous French Twist:
Actress Eva Longoria absolutely killed it at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards by opting for a classic French twist. This might be a classic style, but it is far from boring – the subtle golden brown highlights are perfect for this natural brunette and with voluminous top section, there is plenty of height to give this style lots of interest while elongating Eva’s face and perfectly formed features. We love it!
8. High Ponytail:
We could tie our hair in a ponytail while sleeping. But, just because it’s the easiest way to get our hair out of our face doesn’t mean it has to be basic. Just check out singer Ariana Grande’s retro look. The pop star wears her hair in a high, voluminous pony that sends her hair cascading over her shoulders. Easy to create, this young and va-va voom style is especially perfect for a fun night out or a big, glamorous event.
9. Inverse Fishtail Ponytail:
Who doesn’t love a good braided ponytail? Whether we’re heading out with our girl gang; want a sleek presentation office look; or need a quick, chic up’do for a night out, the inverse fishtail braided pony is on reserve. But, despite the many tricks we have up our sleeves to up the structured fishtail pony, we can never turn down a new twist. Take a look at singer Selena’s chic ponytail that we absolutely adore.
Here’s the how-to: sweep hair to one side and section it out in two. Take a small part from the outside and pass it into the opposite section. Repeat on both sides until you reach the end. Secure with an elastic, and set your long, thick ponytail with some extra strength hairspray.

10. Low Knot Ponytail:
Ponytails are always in. But, if you’re looking for a new addition to your basic updo, you rather take it down a notch lower à la Diane Kruger. The actress’s pony-inspired hairstyle offers people a playful look. Her long hair is divided into 3 sections and the first two parts are twisted into shapes and the lowest section is combed into a low ponytail. The hair ends are hued into the chic popular and lovely pink.
