Types of Hair Updos

When it comes to women’s hairstyles, one of the most popular consists of the hair up do. This really allows the woman’s features to show and can really be an attractive look. There are many variations of the up do and this article will focus on just a few of those.

The beehive updo is apparently the classic symbol of party attire. One reason the beehive style is so very popular with women is because this style allows almost every woman, both with long and short hair, to look like they have volumes of hair in an up do.

Simple yet gorgeous, beehives have a timeless attraction for the late night party goers. The hair is simply folded upwards and sometimes tied around a bun. The core of this style is that the hair is tied above the head with clips or bands. Sometimes part of the tied hair is set loose on the back or on the forehead.Hairpins are often used to help keep this up do in place.

Another popular hair up do is the French twist. As can be assumed from the name, French twists are done by partly twisting the tip of the bunch of hair and placing or fixing the bunch on the back of the head with punch hair-clips or hair-pins. Almost similar to the beehive in hair positioning, however, French Twists are distinct because it gives a nice wavy texture due to the twists.

The ponytail is the most popular type of hair up do all around the world. The ponytail is simple yet attractive and also is just timeless. This hair up do is popular for its ability to give any woman face a fresh as well as active look. The ponytail is simply done with bands pulling the hair backwards and then tied with a single knot. To add flare to this look, women wear colorful scarves around the knot. It is fresh because the ponytail reveals most parts of the face. It is active because the ponytail is easy to manage while working.

The bun is the other type that is mostly popular with women having long hair. Similar to beehives, however, buns are tied at the top as well as at the lower end of the head. Sometimes buns are tied slightly on the left or on the right side of the head. A hair pin is often used with buns.

It is obvious that all of these hair updos look beautiful. However, all these styles may not suit every woman equally. It would be wise to vastly experiment with all these styles before wearing either one or two of the particular styles.
