9 Beautiful Updos For Long Curly Hair
Who says curly hair and updo’s don’t go together? Sure they need lot of TLC, but styling long curly hair can be fun and sophisticated. From a high wavy bun to a glam curled updo, read on to see our top ten celebrity inspired updo hairstyles for long curly hair!
How To Do A Updo For Long Curly Hair
1. Half Updo
Another way to stick to an all-natural look without the extra volume of the curly fro is to pull half the hair back like singer Carrie Underwood did. To recreate Carrie’s gorgeous hairdo, tease hair at the crown before securing it in a bouffant. Pull hair back away from the sides and secure it behind your head, creating a simple half-up ‘do. Finally, curl the ends of your hair with a curling wand, and use some hairspray to keep them defined.
2. High Ponytail
Songstress Jennifer Lopez looks oh-so-chic with her super-long, curly locks pulled up into a high ponytail. This curly ponytail has a high fashion edge, thanks to the teased texture and high placement. Recreating this chic style works best with longer hair. Combine natural texture with texturizing spray for dynamic curls. Once you’ve styled your curls, pull your hair up into a super-high pony tail, and secure it with hair elastic.
3. Easy Updo
Hayden Panettiere’s look is effortless yet beautiful. The wavy updo can look really sophisticated and sexy, and unlike straight hair, your curly hair will add volume and movement to the look. The actress chooses to leave her bangs curled framing her face, and the curls are quite defined but the whole look is kept vaguely loose, and tousled for a playful look that packs in lots of texture and bounce
4. Crowning Braid And Long Curls
Actress Thandie Newton always looks gorge when she shows off her curls. For the look, gather your hair at the top and slightly to one side and secure it with pins without causing any breakage or damage. This long curly hair updo is chic and contemporary, and it’s a great way to keep cool in summer.
5. Curly Ponytail With Bouffant
Megan Fox vamps up the classic ponytail hairstyle by wearing hers high up on her head with a puffy bouffant. Perfect for a night in the town, to recreate Megan’s look, tease hair at the crown to create a big bouffant, and use some light hairspray to keep your bouffant smooth and sleek. Keep the rest of your hair curly for a stunning contrast.
6. Curly Sock Bun
AnnaLynne McCord is right on trend with her huge, gravity-defying sock bun. Embracing the natural texture of her curly hair, the 90210 actress added even more pizzaz to her updo with a few tendrils of hair left loose to frame her face. A great hairstyle for summer, and for semi formal events, we absolutely love this look!
7. High Bun With A Bouffant
The partial high bun updo gives you the best of both worlds: the elegance of an updo in the front and plenty of length in the back. High School Musical actress Vanessa Hudgens looks fabulous in a curled up’do with a quiff. To recreate the look, backcomb your bangs and pin them back for a glamorous look. The advantage of wearing a quiff with curly hair is it makes your face look slightly longer and slimmer and it needn’t be neat and time-consuming.
8. Wavy Updo
This Taylor Swift hairstyle offers plenty of volume and dimension. Here she’s got her long locks in a classic up’do with loose, face-framing tendrils of hair. For soft and romantic hair texture like Taylor’s, spritz some texturizing spray into your hair, pull your hair tight and pin it back. Let a few flyaway hairs stay loose for a finishing touch.
9. Curled Up’do With Bouffant
The classic look— Singer Demi Lovato’s intricate, curled up’do style—is simple. The actress looks fabulous with her auburn locks in a flirty bouffant. To recreate her look, begin with a curling iron to make a lot of spiral curls. Next, backcomb hair to create volume, section out some tendrils around the face and sweep the rest of the hair back into a ponytail. Twist, wrap and secure the hair back using pins. Finish off the sexy look with a generous amount of hairspray. A big plus – it doesn’t hide your face!
