Easy Updo Tutorial

Ok ladies I am not one to wear my hair up very often. I'm actually pretty sure the last time I wore an updo was over 10 years ago at my high school prom! I've always been intimidated to try them and also don't want to spend $70 at the salon for someone else do it. After watching this Elegant Updo Tutorial I was able to recreate the look in about 15 minutes! Now if I can do this you girls can definitely do it!  Being that wedding season is in full effect I think this is the PERFECT effortless updo for any wedding you may have coming up! All you need is a curling iron and lots of bobby pins!

  1. Gosh, I am the one that almost never wears my hair up purely because I don't think I can create an updo or a beautiful messy bun good enough for my liking :) so thank you for sharing this video!

  2. Beautiful! You should wear your hair up more often! I also have a question. You wore a white low cut maxi dress on one of your posts I believe when you were in Paris. I am looking for something like that. Any thoughts??? Thank you so much! Love your blog xoxo

  3. I actually think I prefer your hair up, shows your beautiful bone structure more :)

    I mostly wear mine down too. I like updos and can do them fairly quickly but I have chubby cheeks so I think my hair down suits me more...

  7. Looks beautiful!
    I am always intimidated too and end up giving up because I get frusterated, but I might have to give this one a try! :)
    I've been feeling like I need some fun/pretty new ways to style my hair for the summer. Tired of wearing it down all the time!
