Create an Updo for the Days You Have a Lot To Do

Having a bad hair day? Try an updo. Updos can turn messy tresses into chic showstoppers in a matter of moments. There’s really no skill required. Updos are easy-to-achieve hairstyles that don't require too much effort or styling tools. Even beauty school drop outs can do this ‘do.

Wanna spend your day doing your best Breakfast At Tiffany’s impression? You should opt for the classic ballerina bun or even try a French twist. These timeless hairstyles are currently making waves on catwalks and turning heads all over the globe. Just check out Yves Saint Laurent's Fall 2011 show, where all of the models sported a silky smooth ballerina bun. Just pull your locks back, wrap it into a bun and bobby pin that sucka in place.

If you prefer boho-chic, try a messy top knotted bun with wisps of hair falling to frame the face. Those of us who enjoy just rolling out of bed in the morning will adore this tamer version of bed head. Hey, if Dolce & Gabbana can do messy updos throughout the Fall 2011 fashion show, why not you?

Whichever style you prefer, the updo is the perfect solution for a hair day that just isn't going quite right. Wrap. Pin. Go.

Dahlia Moon is the quintessential Philly girl. Her obsessions include Geno’s cheese steaks, the Rocky statue and of course Phillies baseball. Her grandmother once told her that “your hair is your crowning glory.” From that point on she made sure that her ‘do was always done. Mostly because all she heard was the crown part and she thought her grandma was calling her a princess. When that dream didn’t actually come to fruition, she made it her business to educate other women in keeping their “crowning glory” impeccably coiffed. Her mission now is to keep women “in the know” regarding the latest and greatest hair trends, because every woman should feel like a princess.
